..aah..ok.. I think I used to watch the spin off series from this called 'KYTV'....  although I don't remember it that well, which is surprising as it sounds like my cup of tea... all a bit dated now I suppose..,  and I haven't listened to radio since 'Round The Horne'

...a wise move although there is a similar one doing the rounds... but I won't go there..

...reminds me though of when I worked for BT doing reverse charge calls... the caller would give me their name as 'Mike Hunt'... so when the other number answered I had to say...''Mike Hunt is calling from a payphone will you pay for the call?...'' ....cue roars of laughter...

...of course, I wondered what it was all about....???

..there are times when I'd like to use it...issues of decency get in the way...  perhaps Pauline has it about right....


Posted: 28/09/2014 at 20:31 one I like very much, it's so unladylike... and I am determined to use it...

The white ones are lovely Salino but I've never grown them as I'd have to pot them and keep them protected over winter here. I'm tempted for next year though  

..yeah... hot sun, drainage for winter, and stony soil I find is necessary for mine....perhaps a bit challenging for damp gardens...... but I'm going to get a whole lot more....
