The hard stuff was to calm my nerves, obviously!

I am so pleased Hosta, I was almost ready to crack open a bottle of the hard stuff.

Funny Dove, that was just what I was thinking, reminded me of my youth.

Pat, the levels in the stream have gone down now, but it is still a raging torrent, probably 3 feet deep.

Hi all.

Rudely awaken a couple of hours ago, terrible commotion in the garden.

Did my macho thing, "it will be ok. sweet heart, I will go and investigate", 2 of the largest foxes I have ever seen, brawling. It was several minutes before they seemed to notice me, and slunk off.

Hope Hosta is ok.

I can't get my head around Syria anymore. This a "civilised" country, where children are starving to death.

What sort of world are we living in now, I am really starting to lose my faith in humanity.

Neighbour problems continue WW, todays phone problems may have something to do with them, as the junction box is located in a field, that they own.

They tried to deny access to BT, but were told very firmly by BT that they had a legal right to enter.

Sadly problems will continue, just not sure OH and I want to tolerate the situation.

DD I find my wife says some equally strange things, I think it is just what happens, when you have been with someone a long time

Comfrey. Can we juice it and drink it?

Evening all.

Truly foul day here, constant rain and high winds.

Had BT here most of the day, trying to sort out our phone line, the guy could talk for England. When he finally left after 5 hours, he thanked me for a nice day!! Good job I don't have anything better to do with my life.

Anyway the wine is now open, so hopefully a peaceful warm evening.

Personally I would never sow tomatoes in a cold greenhouse, I always start them with a bit of heat, and then move them into a cold greenhouse in May.

Try and get the pain sorted. Continuous pain affects everything else in your life, and can really drag you down.

If you can sort that a lot of other things will seem better.

A stiff drink can help as well!

Morning all.

Still dark, and raining heavily.

Oh well, have my seed catalogues, and can start thinking about holiday.

Have a good day.
