I haven't had any problems at all with the site for monthss. Use an iMac and Safari and an iPad and Safari. Have adblock plus installed on iMac (can't install it on iPad - or I couldn't when I last tried). 

Have a good one everyone - sun has now put in an appearance - 25C this afternoon - lovely - swimming & ice cream for us

Pat - OH has a Mac Book & he now prefers using the track pad to a mouse. Took him about 10 days to get used to it.
I prefer a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard. Each to his own.
I also use an iPad but find it a bit clunky to type out anything of any length.
Re dentists - yes, we were talking about the moron who killed Cecil & who deserves to be strung up by his unmentinables.
Re plane crash - a small jet crashed in Uk on Friday (?) killing all 4 on board. Turned out to be members of Osama Bin Laden's family & their pilot. Don't think there was anything suspect about it though.
Off to get the caravan ready for 2 nights away to enjoy the forecast mini heatwave - which is failing to materialise at the moment - rather grey & overcast

Must be time for a G&T then BL - and time for a sit back to look at all your hard work.

Have a good time Dove.

Liri - cake sounds yum - guess it's too late to suggest you consider chocolate cake with raspberry and cream filling? - like Black Forest Gateau but with raspberries instead of cherries. Only just thought of it - might have to make it myself to check it out

WE cut the hedge the other day and I was trying to bag up / shred the cuttings. It took twice as long as usual because I had to keep shaking out the ladybirds. They are not as plentiful this year and they took a long while to arrive (suspect the long cold spring / early summer was to blame) but they are here now and enjoying a bumper feast of aphids on the roses etc.

Hosta - Blimey that's a turn up for the books. 

KEF - I could be locked up for the things I said I would like to see happen to that dentist and / or his business... 

Favourite native mammal?
