Independence Day?

The Cornish, who voted overwhelmingly for BREXIT, and who were the beneficiaries of massive EU grants, due to their comparative poverty, have asked the government to guarantee the same level of funding will be continued.


In the words of a leader I loathed: NO, NO, NO.


Did people really understand what they were voting for?


NO, NO, NO.


A divided Europe, the end to the UK,  I wish I had stayed in Botswana, where they are busy building a union with their African neighbours.

HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Posted: Yesterday at 08:36

Hi all.


36 hours and 4 flights , and I am home.


Truly outstanding holiday, in a wild and beautiful country. 4 different camps, in totally different environments, flying between them in 6 seater planes, and landing on dirt runways, in the middle of no where.


No internet, no phone signal......... fantastic!!! Meant I missed the result, until I reached London. I don't think I have ever been so upset about a political decision, since I was old enough to vote, and that includes the misery of living under Thatcher.


A few close scrapes with the wild life, including a large bull Elephant coming in to one of the camps during the night, and nearly crushing the tent!


About 2000 photos to sort through, and then will hopefully post a few, although I am aware that other people may not be as excited with my holiday snaps, as I am.


Will probably not read back, so hope you are all well.


Particular hugs to DD, I saw your news, and I am very sad, although not surprised. I have never met you, but have been amazed by your energy, and passion; you will survive and prosper.

Referendum, Doesn't it make you spit!!

This is a repeat of a thread, from a few weeks ago, which caused so much trouble, and hatred, that it caused people to leave the forum.


None of my business, but could I suggest we put this thread to bed, before the same happens again.

It looks like Uncina rubra, in which case it is hardy.

Hosta. In some circumstances, that might be considered rude!


Not meaning to offend anyone, of course.
