HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 21/07/2015 at 20:44

Evening all - have not been on the Forum for the last twelve months, and I seem to have missed more than I imagined.

I noticed on another discussion on Sunday that you had problems with Mike Allen - he always seemed friendly and knowledgeable - what happened?

Just got back from the allotment with load of veg, but it's like a dustbowl up there - please,please, can we have some decent rain?

 

 

daffodil bulbs

Posted: 24/02/2015 at 21:59

I planted a handful of daff bulbs a week or so ago - found,forgotten at the back of the shed. As the saying goes - they've got two chances.........!

Incidentally, did everybody see the mention in GM of the new daffodil, Pentillie Duke, discovered in my birthplace? I'm down there in three weeks time; will try to scrounge,????,couple of bulbs from Ted Coryton, (the owner) - the flower certainly looks very nice.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

sorry to hear your news Verdun - what's to say, except that everyone is thinking of you and your Mum, and hope that the love of you and your family bring peace to Mum.

Best wishes

Saw it go by, took about 3 or 4 minutes - looks like a plane light, but stays consistently bright, and there are no coloured navigation lights. All the little 'uns were out in the road looking for it (him), and they all started cheering when it went over - lovely!

 

For those who missed it, it will fly over again at a few minutes to seven this evening, coming from the west, and this time a bit lower I believe. This time it will only be visible for about a minute, but if any of Santa's little helpers are awake, take them out in the enjoys and enjoy!

Happy and peaceful Christmas to you all.

Before Verdun picks me up, I don't know how Nadelik Lowen got the addition 'ago' - heaven knows what sometimes happens between my keyboard and the published post!

As Cornwall has now been granted National Minority Status by the EU, it might be advisable for you to take your passports with you. If you upset the Natives, you might find yourself waking up in a Tiddy Oggy mine - no doubt Verdun will tell you the safest way to approach his place without causing any undue ripples on the surface of the Tamar!

To-do lists

Posted: 25/10/2014 at 19:13

I seem to be collecting  to-do lists (tdl). I have a garden one, a bedroom decorating order-work one,a general one, and a shopping list for garden and DIY bits.

I know most people have TDL's of greater or lesser size, but does anybody manage to complete them fairly regularly? I seem to complete a job, cross it off the list, but whilst working on the task  seem to notice some other job that needs to go on the list.

I have even ,occasionally, put a reminder on the general TDL to check one of the other lists - I think I know what a dormouse on a treadmill feels like.

Am I sad, and on the road to nowhere?

Impressions of the posters here

The only picture that comes to my mind is Verdun - as a typical Cornishman, and there is a definite type ( or two) ! Phillipa smith is probably spot on.

Frank (palaisglide) is a big lad, still pretty fit - and ,of course, light on his feet!

Sadly, only 10 per cent of the money made from theTower of London poppies will go to charity - the rest going in production costs and other overheads. Nevertheless, a wonderful sight and as the saying goes, 'every little helps'.
