LB I will try to catch up but you girls seem pretty sharp.

thanks Daisy.....maybe we feel more for our pets because they are so dependent on us yet we somehow think we  let them down when their time comes!

All I ask anyone  here is to look at what I actually said. ...not what is quoted/misquoted or twisted.   Don't post replies...that simply creates more argument. .  Judge for yourself.   Pm me if you think I have been offensive ...if I have offended YOU and why.....and I will take it on board.  

Because I sometimes read the Daily Mail (I actually read different newspapers) I have been called "hitler loving" along with all the other Mail readers. Isn't that offensive?    Over recent times my name has been repeatedly posted with the occasonal sarcastic remark by  someone who knows I am trying to avoid him.

 My crime seems to be that I support Brexit and I want our rulers to talk us UP and not down.

We should be able to discuss politics here and accept opposing views.  NOTHING I say is personal.  Maybe Brexit will fail, maybe we as ordinary "uneducated" folk have got it wrong, maybe we should not have had the referendum  but I want us to give it a go.  

To make it absolutely clear, the  "elite" I referred to, OF COURSE, meant  those in power ...senior politicians, bankers, lawyers and the like ......who don't want things to change for THEM and not anybody on the forum .

Morning Lantana

yes a 13 year old golden lab.  Such an odd thing but the emotion of losing Spike is a deep one and far worse than l imagined it would be.  Dog lovers though would understand that 

will have to try and get into these brain teasers you girls are coming up with

check what I wrote for yourself. See if it in anyway relates to personal attacks on anyone here.  I really don't think you can tell me what has offended YOU.  

the "elite" I refer to..CLEARLY...are those in high places making decisions that affect us and not anyone on the forum.  Why on earth would I describe anyone on the forum as "elite"?

put some protection there...tree guard or discreet keep cats away in future.  Not keen on tree guards though because they tend to harbour snails and the like.  Prefer mesh. 

hopefully it will heal itself.
