Sorry, I have just read my last post and it is not appropriate to have posted it.

Just feeling a bit tired and emotional.

Shall try to resume in a more positive manner, soon

Blood tests are just to monitor whether cardiac damage is improving or not.

Cause for problem has not been found, so probably won't be now, probably viral.

Trying to stay positive and hope for the best, the alternative being a transplant [ unlikely ], or a not very long life.

How do you care for indoor plants during the winter?

Who are you?

Is this a commercial product?

I would not put Delphiniums out in the garden until they fill a 2l. pot at least, otherwise they are just slug fodder.

I don't believe there is any evidence that " Root Grow " is of any benefit to perennials.

The issue of treatment for high cholesterol, is incredibly complicated.

Absolute level of cholesterol, is far less important than a risk score which takes into account multiple factors.

Not all doctors believe that people with moderately raised cholesterol need treatment.

I have been asked by lots of people, whether or not they should go on treatment and genuinely do not feel I can advise, without recommending that they read a pile of literature larger than War and Peace before giving any advice.

Monty knife

So many of our views expressed on this thread, seem to depend on our views on Monty himself.

Reading his books he has always explained that he has help in his garden.

As for tools, I think he clearly loves them, writing lovingly about oiling old spades and sharpening secateurs. I am sure he is given tools by manufacturers, so what, perk of the trade. Back in the day, I used to get free Paracetamol [ actually, I probably stole it ]

Hi all.

Still in bed, drinking coffee and eating toast, very pleasant, although the bed may not be so comfortable tonight.

Listening to After The Goldrush, by Neil Young, I love this record.

More blood tests later, all good things must end I suppose.

Been lovely having OH home, she is starting to look a bit less stressed and has been doing some jobs for me in the garden, with me supervising.

I am no less breathless, but a bit less panicky and slightly more sanguine about stuff.

Never a truer word Dove.

I used to drink at the same pub as Ken Clarke and although our politics could not be more different, I admire him because of his conviction and his life experience before entering politics. He is also a very entertaining man.
