The hot weather has gonejust a ordinary Summer's day-bit of cloud, bit of sun,the garden has really benefited from the last few days

Have watered and dead headed-that is enough exercise for one day-Mrs Geoff did her Zumba class for the second time on Thursday-I did dinner.

I have driven up Boxhill- I will pass on the walk and the bike ride

where shall I buy my viola plug plants

This is bit of a minefield-I have got bedding from jersey plants in the past and never had a complaint -but others have-but that is where I would go.

I loved the drumming-that must be good exercise -should I take it up?-

Another way of testing new prospective neighbours?

Nutty Nora has got window cleaners in-she wont be happy one threw his fag onto her grass-this could be fun

It was one of those events that at times got a bit too arty and Kenneth Branagh is a bit of a ham-but I still thought it was great-those in the stadium must have loved it

Not an issue for "the Moderator" surely-that is for offensive posts??

Here would be a better place-reporting a bug in the system

Now that is odd-it was "public profile"-now "followed threads"-but if you reply to a message the "followed threads" option is replaced by "public profile"-need a lie -down

I have just switched browsers from Firefox to IE as an experiment-the "followed threads" option only appears on IE-I think it was requested earlier in the year so must be work in progress -doesn't appear as an option on Firefox at all at the moment.

Back to Firefox-no annoying ads

This subject of veiwing or non-veiwing of videos crops up occasionally-I can see it-it may be a problem with your browser?

Honeybadger - I agree. Some of the radio and TV gardening presenters are far too ready to pull out the bug-killers instead of looking for biological controls. Makes you wonder if some of them have been 'got at' by vested interests.

Given that Bayer hand out 'freebies' to local horticutural societies, it wouldn't be surprising if certain prominent presenters had been recruited.

 

I think without any evidence of this you are entering a tricky area
