Have you nothing better to do with your time Iain?

Well said Dove and how refreshing to read posts by cat owners who take the time and make the effort to consider their neighbours by training there cats instead of defending the actions of their cats!

I think Punkdoc has hit the nail on the head. Acupuncture cannot cure anything but it may in some circumstances relieve symptoms. I tried it, as a last resort and against the advice of my physio, for lower back pain. It had absolutely no effect. When circumstances allowed I underwent a thorough investigation and it was found that I had a stress fracture in one of my lower vertebrae causing pressure on the sciatic nerve. No amount of proddling with needles would have helped this. On the other hand I knew colleagues who tried acupuncture for dead legs and such and they thought it helped.

Stainless Steel

I don't doubt you have had super service from your tools cornelly, however, the fact remains that stainless outperforms carbon steel in almost all areas. It is, I agree, a case of over-engineering, in some cases, yet still a fact. 

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is stronger, harder, will not rust or corrode as easily as mild steel and retains it's shape better. If you are looking for longevity then stainless will, always, outperform carbon steel.

No need to apologise Daffy, I'm very easily confused

Jo47. The parents of the child, who is playing out at 11pm, are irresponsible. The owners of the dog, who sets the burglar alarm off three nights a week, are irresponsible. I think we would all agree on that. However, why is it that cat owners don't consider themselves irresponsible when their cat causes problems for other people? Are cat owners immune from social responsibility or are they just plain selfish? Why do cat owners not feel a responsibility to ensure that their pet stays on their property?

It really does seem simple to me. Cats are never a problem, it's the owners.

Plant advice

I'm a little confused. Daffy, if the plants were supplied in 9cm pots then, how are you going to pot them on into 3 inch pots? 9cm is bigger than 3 inches. If they are only ready for potting into 3 inch pots then the advice may be different than originally given.
