Hope when they drug test you, they don't find any bamboo in your system. It is a banned substance.

Cold here again.

OH decided we would go to a GC today, which is very strange, as she has no real interest. Went to a place I rarely go, saw a few nice things, but I was in a I'm not sure where I would put that mood, so didn't buy anything.

Belly Pork roasting in the oven, just need to choose a bottle of wine.

Hope your Mum is comfortable Dove.

Very scary

Hi Philippa.

As you say very rare for garden plants to poison you, unless you deliberately set out to eat them.

Aconitum is well known to be poisonous, and dire warnings are given out about handling it, etc. However I have grown it for years, often forget to wear gloves, and appear to still be alive. Ground up and added to food, I believe it has been used to kill people.

The toxic / poisonous issue is difficult. Many very useful drugs are toxic, in fact we often used to say that any truly effective drug, was always toxic to some part of the body.

I have always regarded poisonous as being used for a substance that has no beneficial uses, and can cause harm.

However that is a guess.

Very scary

A very important, cardiac drug, is also made from foxgloves, Digoxin.

President Obama

I should probably keep away from this thread, but I do think Obama has done more to change America, than anyone had done in the previous 50 years.

Obama care, is a real chance to change their health care system, which has meant  that, if you are poor, there is no care.

I have worked there as a doctor, so do have a slight idea about what I am saying.

Yes, I know, only just left, and now he is back again. Just looking for some sympathy.

Wanted to thank you for the lovely PMs, so kind, it is nice to have friends.

I am angry, mostly at myself, for what has happened. I love a good argument, and I pride myself on my ability to argue. Sadly I seemed to lose the plot a bit, and just found myself getting more and more angry.

I need to have a think about how to deal with these things. The sensible answer would be to stick to gardening talk, and general chit chat, but sadly I have never been very sensible, so that is probably not an option.

I love the forum, I know it is rather pathetic, but it seems to be where my friends are, so I need to do some thinking about how to deal with things.

Have spent the day listening to Prince songs, and imagining what duets him and Bowie might have done. That really would have been a great gig.

Once again, thank you for your wise and friendly council.

Hope to see you soon.

No hard feelings Verdun.

He's a notty boy !

I am not slagging Verdun off for his opinions, but for his constant stirring, which is something he does with monotonous regularity.

I would be most grateful if you would not tell me how to behave and as for your insult about taking another pill, I assume that is a deliberate reference to my long standing depression.

The last thread did cause acrimony, with a number of posters getting upset, including Verdun, who told us he was leaving the thread, but sadly did not keep his promise.


That is not friendly, it is condescending, so do one.

Accusing someone of lying is not a joke [ even if he is a t####r ]

Do not tell me how to think, or to vote.

No Verdun, read your own thread, it is clearly not meant as fun.

You are a s##t stirrer.
