What's the weather like in your area?

Hard luck Frank, hope things improve quickly up there. I'll probably spend rest of the morning in the greenhouse, shuffling things and tidying, and perhaps repotting - should be a damned sight warmer!

Lovely sunny day in the Chilterns, very cold, but no sign of any snow - yet!

Hoping to go for a good walk tomorrow, on The Ridgeway at The White Horse at Uffington, a thousand feet up on the Berkshire Downs. If the weather stays like this it'll be perfect - and certainly get rid of a few cobwebs!

Thanks GG.......trouble is, if I invest in one of those monsters, I'll need a bigger dining table! Think Frank has arrived at the only sensible solution!

Next time I visit one of those twee Italian restaurants, I must ask the waiter where they get the 3-foot long mills used to cover everything, from starters to your ice-cream and coffees.........they always work perfectly. Some waiters are like cowboys of old with their six-guns - blink, and the pepper clouds are flying!

Off on a different rant, but does anybody know a decent make of salt and/or pepper grinder that actually works well and continues working well? Most of the ones I have had or see in the shops are by the same maker, and the actual grinding mechanism can be either plastic or steel, but none seem hugely effective for long.

A small moan when there are so many better things to complain about, but this is usually an irritation at the end of the day I could usually do without - how sad have I become?

My Mum was Irish, from the far West. It's a lovely, lovely Country with super people,and everybody should take at least one holiday in Ireland. You're a lucky fella Derek.

Clogherhead, I'm Cornish but live now in the Chilterns Hills. I do vote at most elections but I get very irritated by political parties who say that as I voted for them then they feel they have the right to press on with all their crazy schemes even though a lot of them got only a mention, or none, in their manifestos. It's only in the last few years that any discussion has been initiated by the politicians on the immigration problems - nothing against any foreigners, but this country is full to saturation.( having said that I'm a foreigner myself, living the wrong side of the Tamar! )
