Oooh nasty. I missed that one, Gary.

I watched a programme about the Mayans a few months ago. i can't remember when  their civilisation came to an end but at the time they could predict solar eclipses. They interviewed some of the modern descendents of the Mayans and they'd never heard of the calendar and didn't seem bothered that it predicted the end of the world.

Jean, what about the Mayan calendar that only goes up to December the 21st 2012.  Some say it means the end of the world and others say that machines will rise against man.

The solar storm of 1859 knocked out  the telegragh systems of the time. If a similar one happened now think of the chaos. We won't be able to get onto this forum

I haven't decided to bring C******** forward or not bother to do any shopping at all.

I love blue flowers, Pam.

The birds are going to have a feast in your garden, Gary. lovely plant.

Have you ever seen the film, 'Saving Grace'? Really funny about a pensioner having to make some money after her husband  died and she grew cannabis.

We've got a lot of wild areas in Cornwall covered in gorse and a couple of years ago two chaps made a clearing in the middle of a thicket of gorse and grew some plants. They spent all summer tending them and carrying water over quite a distance. Unbeknown to them the police knew about it from the start and when the plants were ready to harvest the police pounced.

Hope you do see the Northern Lights, P. Petal. Too cloudy and too far south here.

Fascinating sighting, Figrat. I'm not sure these unexplained things are from other worlds but UFO's all the same.

I think the launch is delayed again because of the wind. Not a good idea to have beans for tea before attempting to break the sound barrier

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)
