Re: Obsolescence

I never knew that LadyA but have been put off by the bitterness of real coffee when I make it at home. Next time I’ll do as you say.

Re: Obsolescence

What you need is a retired car mechanic, a retired electrician and a guy who’s brilliant at plumbing living in your community. It’s amazing how they refuse all payment such that you have to conspire with their wives as to what present they’d like. The last plumbing job, water pouring out of my hot w...

Who could forget Daktari. Clarence the cross eyed lion!
OK, I’m happy to admit it. This year I’m buying one of those Xmas trees that comes complete with LEDs and glitter.

Re: Christmas Cards

How odd. Just been reading through and my post at the top of the page had a paragraph about Ronald Dahl and Gremlins. It seems that someone else’s post was merged with mine.
And for those who remember it my husband was not born in the 40s. (Actually the 60s)

Re: Hens not developing?

Can’t add to Marigolds excellent advise. Only to say that I sell surplus pullets at 18 weeks on Sept 1st each year and they invariably come into lay soon after. Last year I had commitments down south in March and so didn’t set the eggs until 3 weeks later. As a result the pullets I kept have not com...

Re: Christmas Cards

Sorry too be the only one but what on Earth is Lametta? Stockings! Still not keen on either tangerines or walnuts. But yes, cake is good. I’m a marzipan addict so Easter is good too because a neighbour makes Simnel Cakes. My fondest memory though was getting out of bed and running downstairs to see ...

Re: Christmas Cards

And of course we do have to be vaguely conscious of sending appropriate cards. Some years ago I sent a card to my brother who was a retired policeman showing a policeman leaning through the window of the nativity scene with a mobile phone in his hand saying “looks like travellers, Sarge”.
