 Good afternoon all.

So sorry to hear about Runny's son. Hope he makes a speedy recovery. It's been a terrible week with Paris and the bush fires in Australia.

I went down the garden to pick up the last of the apple windfalls and saw this daffodil. I usually have some in flower at Christmas but never this early. On our local radio it said the daffodil growers needed a cold spell to start the bulbs into growth and the flowering might be late this year because of the mild weather and they would miss the peak time to sell the flowers.

Good afternoon all,

Not in the mood for any gardening today. Plenty of leaves to be raked up and dahlias to be cut down and covered with bracken but it is so dreary out there.

Sorry so many are feeling poorly. I've reached the grand old age of 27 so I seem to be immune to all the bugs going around (touch wood smiley) Also I was brought up on a farm and reports say that strengthens your immune system.

I read recently that Joan of Arc may have had hallucinations because she had bovine TB. We drank milk straight from the cows and neither my brother or I had to have the TB jab at school because we already  had some immunity. Don't think I have hallucinations though it was definitely Elvis who brought me a cup of coffee in bed this morning.

Very sad times.

Living in the depths of Cornwall we see very few ethnic minorities ( apart from the Cornish, sorry Verdun) but I do feel sorry for the majority of Muslims who are horrified by these attacks. Places like Sharm and Tunisia rely on tourists. We went to Turkey a few years and the locals were so friendly and loved our  grandchildren and made such a fuss of them but I'm afraid I would hesitate to go to any Muslim country now.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is okay and surviving the winds. Sunny and calm here in Cornwall although we had some squally showers earlier.

My daughter said that Halloween  falls on Friday the 13th next year. Almost caught me out for a moment.

Just think, in another month it will start getting lighter again.

Thank you for all your kind messages. At first I felt I was being disloyal to my old dog but so glad now that my family encouraged me to get a pup.

How sad to have nasty neighbours and even worst to take revenge on the wrong people. There was a terrible case in Truro lately when a man opened his door and had acid thrown in his face with devastating results. It turned out to be a hit man who had got the wrong house.

Hope everyone has a peaceful evening.

Oh Punkdoc hope you can keep your cool.

Hope everyone is okay and poorlies start to feel better.

Steve, you might know, someone told me a tw*t was a pregnant goldfish.

Been feeling down lately as I had to let my 13 year old German Shepherd go three weeks ago but my family persuaded me to get a puppy so a labradoodle is coming in two weeks. I'm really looking forward to her arrival. My poor old dog couldn't go for walks anymore and showed no further interest in 'helping' me garden.

Even I've got interested in the rugby as my SIL is Welsh and can talk of nothing else, at the moment.

I had a nice trip out to Falmouth with my daughter today. On the way back I could hardly believe it but they were selling bunches of daffodils on the side of the road. They were probably sol d'or  that grow on the Isles of Scilly.  I've seem them for sale at the begining of December but never this early.

Good morning all,

Haven't posted for a while but try to keep up with you all.

Hope everything soon gets better for DD. She's had a tough time lately but has a really positive attitude.

I've already been down the bottom of the fields to release a baby rat caught in the humane trap. They have been coming to the bird feeders. It's probably just as cruel to release them but it gives them a fighting chance and I can't bring myself to kill them. The advice is to release them two miles away but I let him go about half a mile away so he''ll be back tomorrow. 

Have a good day everyone.

Verdun, devastating news. How sad.

So sorry  DD. He probably thought it was a bit of fun. Dogs break our hearts don't they?
