I did see something like those white balloons in front and behind of a helicopter which was flying very low. The 'balloons' were travelling in the same direction as the helicopter and not in the same direction as the wind. Suddenly one 'balloon' shot of at right angles at a high speed of knots. I was so intringued and rang the local RAF base to see if the pilot had reported anything. Air Traffic said that as the pilot was flying low level it wasn't under their control.  the next day the station commander rang me to ask what I'd seen but never heard anything more. He didn't treat me like a batty woman.

Has anyone else seen something they couldn't explain? when they were sober that is.

Do you viewers meet your high standards, Geoff or do you and Cody have to go into mad mode round the garden to put them off?

Oh looked at Beck's link looks as though he's on his way. He's done two really high jumps before but someone else who tried cracked his helmet climbing out of the balloon's capsule and his blood boiled and brain exploded.

If he doesn't make it this time perhaps we could send Geoff up to raise funds for our football team.

The skydive from space has been cancelled for today due to wind. Perhaps he's got that lurgy that's going around. He should take that lemon cure that Jean suggested.  Going to have a go tomorrow.

Love your apples, Pam and that colour hibiscus is stunning, Jean.

I've brought these begonias into the conservatory hoping I can keep them for next year. They were plug plants. Some have formed tiny corms but not all. I don't know whether to keep watering them or let them die down. I suppost the ones without corms would die without water. What does the panel think? I have given them a does of provado vine weevil killer.

Still a bit of colour in the garden but everything is looking tired now. That cosmos is just starting to flower although the one next to it has been flowering for ages. Both in full sun (when we do get sun)

Hello everyone,

You are so lucky to have all that entertainment outside. My only neighbour is my son and family who are pretty quiet.

How about that chap who is going to to edge of space today in a balloon, 23 miles, and then free falling to earth breaking the sound barrier. Will there be tears before bedtime?

Hope everyone is on the mend.

I am still waiting for you to send me your bank details for your share of the £10 I won in the lottery 12 weeks ago.

Just googled the chances of having the same birthday. Called the birthday paradox but didn't understand it.

the ponies aren't allowed in there too long. It's not good for them to have too much rich grass.

I read somewhere once that if you have a group of 60 people the odds are very high that two people will have the same birthday. I don't know how it works when there are 365 days in a year. I did once meet someone who was born on the same day as me.
