Good advice Obelixx only I bought a new TV last summer. Then an oven washer and new car now a table, there is no point in hanging back so may as well have a nice oak one for the TV. I cannot take it with me and my lot tell me to spend it on myself. That will complete the cycle the new bathroom kitchen and refurnished the conservatory, I think that is a full cover. I think there is still three and fourpence left in the bank so will look and see.

Obelixx indeed you are right, problem my glass tv table now looks out of place as everything else is oak. I will not tell Pam until ready to buy one.

Should have mentioned now the owner of new solid oak table, Daughter took me to shop said that is the table we picked, "err" sorry dear I said a round one that opens and there it is right next to your choice. We did all the tests girl said you can have that one if you wish deal done and away home. Daughter, one thing about you dad you never dither, in job done and out. What other way is there?

Any tips for growing rice?

Treehugger, i can buy many things in super markets cheaper than i can grow them but against your own the taste like c@@@. We gardeners grow exotics because we want too who cares what it costs.

Lily you may well have called me a naughty boy in my youth, dancing with all those older girls often married husbands away, where most lads went dancing to get a girl I went to dance, big difference, now I watch videos.

Daughter will be here shortly to take me looking at dining tables, "oh well" it is a dull dark day here so gardening is out.

I'll get my flat cap big coat and dancing hobnail boots then.

Enfolded in each others arms up close and personal I would suppose you could fall in love with Craig or Bruno, definitely Darcy. Three months is a long time to be in each others skins which is what any dancer will tell you, my dance teacher used to tell me our bones should be touching? David may be right although my memory does not tell me how often the vertical became horizontal not very often it would seem, did I miss something? Any one who watched ITT would see by the body language those two were very close, so at ease in the interviews would suggest a melding away from the Camera. hang on let me find my dancing shoes???

David, I have a problem, living atop a hill the water goes down. Perusing the site I decided on terraces, "oh dear" what a todo. My neighbours had strong objections to me building walls up their drives then flooding the place, hang on says I you will get free rice for a year then reduced rate. My b##### car is still ion the garage he screamed, yes but think you are saving the planet and it could be worth a bomb in fifty years. Not with water up to its bustle and rice growing out of the windows? Some people are so negative.

David should I shelve the scheme???

HELLO FORKERS!

Buttercup no chance, my daughter in full flight breaks the sound barrier. It will be in the car even if in pyjamas and will not get past her choice. Just like her mum and i never argued with her either. I am resigned to it now.
