Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Not a mod.....a member of the forum said her "feelings were hurt" by my talk about christianity.  in fact my words were not offensive in any way.  Just said other people are as good if not better than most practising christianity......shucks, I've prob said too much already 

jo, feel so sorry for you that you were so upset. I am aware of another member almost driven out.   I'm a bloke....I can handle it....but, heck, we discuss everything here don't we?    Don't we?  

"Supporting one another" is fine but censoring topics like politics, religion....blimey folks!  I was told not to mention GARDENING on the hello forkers thread.  Some of us like to talk about politics, religion, climate change, IS,,the floods, etc.  I don't read every thread here.....we can participate or not in whatever thread we choose.

Morning folks

quite pleasant here....back from a walk with Spike.  Dry and mild. 

Have to help someone formulate a claim over the weekend......he was hit by a motorist (using a mobile phone) but luckily suffered just bruising.  However,,he was badly shaken and has loss of earnings over several weeks to consider. 

Daffodils are sprouting too early!

I have some daffs in flower and foliage of others as much as 80 cm tall

gotta have a veg patch gg.   Nothing like fresh organic food from your own garden and it needn't take too much time or effort 

Can I chop it (just a bit)?

Berkely, this is the best time to prune acers.....well, it's when I choose to do it.

reduce the height now.  in spring you can carefully trim off any dieback
