Nice to see the beat go on. Have now met two people in person as a result of this thread [well, it's ancestor] and spoken on the phone with a few others. Still wish it had the button for downloading the thread, although I seem to remember being told how to do so the last time I whinged about the same thing.

oooh nice room, but think that the carpet needs to be a tad darker - engine oil tends to show up on anything lighter.


Oh, found an guitar thingy in the old shed so brought it over with me - think it might be yours Mr Draper sir?


just going to find my corner, pour myself a drink and settle in now...

Good to see that ratty blanket that used to be in the corner has disappeared.

We need con-pilot to see the bar is properly appointed.

No a Palindrome is a type of Camel that gets another Camel to carry his hump.

I used a mirror and got it right!


Dan, do you think it may have gone over the heads of many?

there's one tentative tiny shoot from the mint....
I trust that you know about mint?

When we moved into our first house I planted mint just outside the back door in a bed that ran along the all of the house between the all and the concrete path (it was a new build). The mint thrived, and did so well that it under-ran the concrete path and sprouted up on the other side.
Much excavating was necessary to remove the roots (from both sides of and underneath the path).
I then acquired a metal bath (actually it was a cistern) in which the mint was restrained . . .

And then there was the pretty Rhus tree that I planted next to the lawn for its colourful foliage (not realising its propensity to sucker from the roots which had under-run the lawn . . . ).

Oh and the Russian Vine which I planted to provide cover over the unattractive boundary fence (the garden centre especially recommended it) which should more accurately be named rushing vine . . .

One learns (by the mistakes).

Was it closed by a mod?


Strange that c*r*v*ns are forbidden, but P*k*ys are fair game . . .
Funny old World.
