Just about to say say same thing as Woody. Many of these nuisance calls are from abroad and there is nothing to stop them.  Got a convincing spam email about iTunes today.   Anything unsolicited must be avoided no matter how plausible they sound.

i also try to be polite to tele sales people....currently inundated with home insursnce calls ........because they are trying to make a living. I just say "please remove me from your lists".  If they ring again I'm more aggressive

Getting angry helps.  Controlled and focussed though..........going back to my athletic days the extra grunts provide increased power and determination.

I've moved a few concrete posts....the hardest was a series of them cemented to car park and crowbar was essential. Posts removed to build a concrete wall.  

If this bramble can move the post then it wont be too difficult.   Dig around it as deep as poss and keep rocking it.  It will move.  Choose a cold day and warn people to keep their distance (if you're anything like me there will be some verbals) 

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

My hydrangea kyushu arrived late afternoon. Duly planted. good size plant and fully expect it to be superb in the summer between stipa gigantea and canna Durban.  So,,nothing left to do unless I see a bargain or two at gc.  And I mean a real bargain with a minimum of half price and even then I will haggle better
