Used to watch chuckle bros with my very young niece.  I enjoyed them more than she did and used to record episodes.  bring back the Chuckle Brothers 

beautiful yesterday and it's looking good so far today.

Worrying moment.  I passed the thinnest Father Christmas in local store car park yesterday.  I asked if he was the real FC and he said yes.  Got me very worried I remarked to fellow I think he may be ill.  What about my xmas pressies If he's got the flu?     Sorry to alarm you folks!  I guess I'm just thinkIng out loud.

If the moderators are listening, no posts should be removed without reference to the members or unless the thread is offensive. We do not need such parental control

I will never accept I am just a small speck in the universe.  I am so very important

Chuckle brothers are brilliant.  went few years back to see them in panto and they were hilarious. loved their tv progs too.  My sense of humour.

cangranmafixit, I confess to not readimg your thread but only because it's been a hectic couple of days and have been pre occupied.

if your thread was removed will the moderators state why.  I also know of another thread deleted similarly.  If threads are not defamatory,,etc. they should remain on the forum.

the forum now embraces a whole range of different subjects thst reflect who we all are .Because I didn't read it I cannot comment on its content but we all choose what threads to read or not.

so granmafixit, if you're reading this, don't be offended or upset.  your thead was obviously important to you. The forum will be poorer without you.  Look forward to your posts asap

Hate the roller. its the most over rated garden machine.  rarely evens the surface.  Top dressing instead.

It also sounds quite boggy there Vegemight..?  Best to keep off the grass for now.

a good feed in spring and re seeding will  probably be all that is needed.

If mine I would do exactly as Fairy said and cut it hard back.  Nothing else will make it green up at the base

all hedges need to be tapered.  For reasons already given plus they look better anyway. doesn't need to be dramatic ...a gentle tapering will do the trick.
