It IS meant as fun.........pure, pure FUN. 

I showed this to someone before I posted and it was considered funny.  It is my sense of humour Punkdoc so please, now and again, think less severely 

a joke on a serious issue that will soon be resolved, one way or the other.  When then are we supposed to discuss it if not now?

So...............

Hazel, we ALL have a style of talking.  it adds character, fun and, yes irritation, but it makes us less boring characters 

I use the phrase "most everything" often.  I know grammatically it is incorrect but I like it.  A food friend of mine is constantly irritated by it.....much to my amusement 

Think of the famous people with their well known ways of talking.".know what I mean ''arry" (Frank Bruno) for example.

Punkdoc....look!  Keep your quarrels with your neighbour.  

this was meant purely as FUN?  Do you know what that is? 

however, this is the time for these issues and far from stirring

david cameron ...and co....are blaming the brexit campaign for the newly released poor employment figures.  What a notty boy he is.  Wot a rotta.   He knows these figures are because of the increasingly failing economy.  Scaremongering now lying.  Wot a cad !

Cordless mowers

Posted: 20/04/2016 at 16:43

Hello sandra 

I have a Bosch cordless mower.  Had it for several years mow and it is a delight.  I have 2 lawns...the bigger is about 150 sq metres...plus a small area of grass.  I can cut them all twice with one full chsrge.

however, my grass is cut twice a week in the growing season, is level and easy to cut. It takes 20 minutes at most to whizz around . Very long or wet grass and a cordless will struggle.  It is light, quiet and easy to manoeuvre.  And gives me my cherished stripes  well, I like em 

There are others on the market...GTech for example and one or two now have more powerful batteries and I will be checking these out in anticipation of a replacement sometime.

The experts cannot decide if woodlice do damage or not.  I think they prob can damage young plants if conditions are suitable for them.  

However, I squash them ...as I have already said....simply to stop them coming indoors.  They then become very territorial and aggressive and grow to enormous proportions....quite scary in fact.  I tremble as I write this looking over my shoulder !!
