Interesting.  I have a 6 or 7' stump of a very tarry oily fir cut down last year.  This autumn it should burn well I think on my veg patch .

Fishy, wise and kind words there to Lyn.  I have a nephew who is an alcoholic ...drugs too but he says nobody ever warned him of the dangers of drink.  Sounds like you have recovered somewhat sInce 1992.    Never really had an addiction so I can only imagine the deepest side of it.

Morning folks   Sunny and warm...glorious 

Glad to see Dove back.....we needed someone to keep us all in order 

Getting a birthday pressie for someone today......some jewelry and haggling will be on the agenda.  Also get something for my dog's birthday. He hasn't told me but I,suspect food will be his choice.  My birthday over the weekend.....have asked for mini convertible, new  top of the range greenhouse, and more plants.  (don't expect I'll get the plants though). On my travels will pop in to local nursery ......she may have something nice at reduced price ....I'll tell her it's my birthday soon so I'm sure she will oblige 

At this time of year flowers are looking good for longer...even tho  it's hot I think extra moisture and lower light intensity encoursge this

My brother ...at last after persistent calls for him to do so...finally visited my mum in hospital.  Apparently for 10 mins.  He told hospital staff we,had not told him about her being in hospital and proceeded to demand he is kept informed.  Staff have been quick this evening to tell me nobody likes or believes him.  He was put  firmly in his  place.  That will be his moment of duty but it doesnt matter......my mum has people who  care.

She was lively, happy,and full of mischief tonight .  We made sure she would have plenty to laugh at.  Can't change the confusion though alas 

No excuse
