Montalbano is on tonight, Special Relationship looks as though it might be interesting, well Dennis Quaid is in it as Bill Clinton and he is always worth watching - Dennis not Bill that is!

Yes, Kate, Strictly! Although I don't particularly like the first show, I like them later when they are a bit better.

What's the weather like in your area?

Hello, Open Day tailing off now, but need to be here till 3.30, so thought I'd get a bit of networking in.

Yes, Kate, it is an excellent idea and he has now managed to get his product into Asda, which would have got him the additional fundingfromRichard Read. The student involved has actually been on the stand with us today.

Geoff, make sure that everyone can see that chewing gum turning around in your mouth!

Just been watching one of our students on Be Your Own Boss with RIchard Read of Innocent Smoothies. He and his partner got some preliminary funding help for their Lazy Camper product for fetsivals and got though to final 3 in the programme. Didn't win the big funding though.

Kate, sounds like a winner with the puff pastry. I have a pack in the freezer!

Sounds like the clematis might be a winner. Let's hope I look after it properly. Flo, you plant must be huge if blackbirds are nesting in it. What is a good situation for it, do you think?

She was in a private house set in large grounds, photographer was obviously determined to snap her. She wasn't in public and he shouldn't have done it and should be sued. If she was on a beach it would be a different matter. Doesn't make any difference if it is a woman or man being filmed. Harry's situation is different, he needs to be more careful who he invites to parties.

Only just got back, visited the GC! Bought some loppers and a saw, a nice big rosemary and a lovely scented clematis armandii. The leaves are leathery so hoping that the snails won't eat them.

Geoff, we ran from the fireside in one room to another one as fast as possible and wore extra jumpers.

You're right Pam, we used to get up to all sorts and never came to any major harm. Kids need to learn how to take risks.

Been answering emails and sorting out stuff all morning, so having a break now and going out for some lunch and do a bit of shopping. Have to work tomorrow, we have an Open Day.

Morning all, what a lot has already gone on this morning. Glad to see that things have turned out OK for cat and grandsons Jean. Have had lots of experience with expensive vet costs with our various cats,but we love them so we pay.

I too remember Gene Autrey from watching old films on a Saturday afternoon tv, OH would have been at the flicks in person! He loves all the old westerns.My fave was John Wayne, Audie Murphy too.

I used to work at Burtons Biscuits in my holidays from uni, we could eat as many biscuits as we wanted! Didn't make wagon wheels there, but I used to shovel currants into garibaldi biscuits and make sure that the fig rolls were straight before they went into the packing machine. The most exciting thing that happened was that the steel guide fell off and all the fig rolls in the outside lane fell over, otherwise I just sat there and watched the biscuits go by.

Do you remember the pink and white coconut marshmallows with chocolate on the bottom? Yummy!
