Good morning all,

Hope everyone is okay in this windy weather.

I've got solar panels, Dove, but I was lucky enough to have them fitted free when it made it worth while for firms to fit them when the feed-in tariffs were a lot higher. They are on the back of the house where they are not too obvious but they look ugly if they are overlooked.  I had an old electricy meter until the electric company changed it and it turned backwards when I didn't use all the electricy generated but unfortunately the new meter doesn't do that.  The company does any maintenance as another thing to be aware of is the inverter which converts the direct current coming in to alternating current can fail and this can be expensive.

I'm happy with mine as I live in Cornwall and they were fitted free but I am not sure that it would be worth paying for them.

Not too many flowers for the count.

Winter flowering honeysuckle

Flowers still on two varieties of fuschia

 Happy New year all.

I took this photo this morning. They were weighed down with frost the two days ago. Most of my other daffodils are hardly showing above the ground. This must be an early variety.

Just when I've started digging my bunker, Yvie. It's one way of getting seen by the NHS. Just say you've been to Africa and are feeling a bit poorly.

I hope everyone has a very happy New Year.

Someone has left a packaged hydrangea on my doorstep. It must be an early Christmas present.

Good morning all,

Hope I don't get told off for putting this on the wrong thread but it cheered me up seeing this this morning.

I read about the mysterious bangs too. Concord used to fly over here about 9.20 every evening and seconds before I heard it the pheasants used to call out.

Hope everyone has a good day.

That sounds great, Dove.

Good afternoon

Hope you didn't pay extra for the worms and slugs, Matty!

I've been cutting the brambles down this morning at the bottom of the field. They've grown so much this year.  I don't feel so guilty about sitting down in the afternoon if I have an hour or two in the garden.

If Lyn and Dove have a meet next year can I come too? I live near Perranporth.  I let my cottage out in the summer and live in a caravan for a few weeks.



It's a big worry......

Of course Santa exists. The American defence radar NORAD tracks his progress from the North Pole every year and even send up fighter jets to escort him into America. They don't want to shoot him down as an incoming hostile.

It's a lovely site for children (and adults) and the countdown starts in 19 days time.

NORAD santa tracker.

I'm fascinated by conspiracy theories. The moon landings could be proved if, with today's powerful telescopes, photos could show evidence of this.

Last night I watched  a programme about tthe missing 911 tapes.  Any planes still in the air and not responding were ordered to be shot down.  Did this happen to the passenger airliner? We'll never know.

I agree with Dove that cancer was  just as common before the war. People didn't talk about it then.

Although we are living longer now so many people seem to suffer from allergies  and asthma. I don't remember one child when I was at school having problems.We were told that deisel was better for us and the environment than leaded petrol but now we are told this might not be the case.
