Do we have a doctor on board? Just to be on the safe side...

And oh I can imagine some canons actually love being polished...

Good to have you back Mr Draper sire.

Top pretty tip of the day - Plant yer temporary £1 for three from LiddyElls indoors hyacinths (or any bulbs) in a tall glass vase with only a third of its height in soil.
Means they won't flop over when grown and blooming as the rest of the vase will keep them on the vertical. When dead and dusted hoy them willy nilly into the garden to do their thing next year. And repeat until you move to the next season's flowers.



Storm Jake presently doing its wild and woolly thing outside, but, as Jude says, its luxurious being warm and fettled indoors. Fingers crossed the Levels are flooding normally so far this year. Long may it continue.

Likewise long may it continue that the old guard carry on posting.

Would have been back on board five days ago had one not been afflcted with the worst dose of galloping trots one has ever experincedin one's life in yon Queen Elizabeth Hospital the day I was to be transfere to the Freeman Hospital for retubing so for four days I was in purdar,still one shouldn't comlain, one should instead contact ones solictor,still feel a bit weak after lying supine for ten days and venting hot high velocity fluid so ones bum felt like the tail pipe of a F4 Phantom.
Will get one's act together a bit more on the morrow and rearrange the duty roster thence,meanwhile thank you peeps for the welcome back.
Stay away from hospitals they are awash with disease.

Being retubed through the wrist is not pleasent experience,apart from the weirdness of having what appears to be small critters crawling through yer inards I was being driven mad by a itchy nose and ordered under no circumstances to move, eventually I bellowed out for the theater nurse to come and scratch me nose.
Being that the last time I had any surgery was sixty three years ago and being they had to decency to give one gas and knock one out in the olden days

Can you get an itch scrached by a nurse on the NHS these days?

I'll move back to England if so.

Welcome back Tony, glad you made it.
I was stuck in the QE for 2 weeks with mumps, many, many moons ago now.
Over here after my quadruple bypass I enjoyed my first shower while helped by a pretty little thing in full sou-wester gear !!!
Have another cuppa and a cheese and marmite sandwich, that'll help stopper you up !!!

Many cheers,
f

Glad to see you are out of the dockyard Cap'n D, Sir. Bit of inshore work for a while, before heading out into the deep blue water again?

That little pic is brilliand, RbG ... the feelings of Trabsters the world over expressed in one simple pic!! Now, if I may ask a question of you ... I bought two small chilli plants a few months ago, two different varieties of the same creature. Both have been treated exactly the same and are even placed next to each other. Both have produced an abundance of flowers but while one plant has produced many chillies (and continues to do so), the other has produced the grand total of three. The flowers bloom as they should and then simply die off. Any ideas?

Excellent suggestion. By the way I like the improvement of the "Quote" function after the update.

Love the pic & the welcome RBG!

The SSK, you still in Belgium?

Wiking managed to finagle his electric dinky-toy up our unplowed driveway at 6 AM. He´s clever that way. Ruckus started at 07.00 hours when neighbour (VW bus) and lodger (minivan) tried and spectacularly failed at the same thing.

Loudly revving engines, repeated high speed run ups, cursing in Norsk and Polish. They carried on so that I abandoned hopes of further sleep.

Lodger finally got up to the road, neighbour stopped trying. Had they each grabbed a snow plow and cleared the driveway together ....

Stuff coming down unremittingly. And so heavily that OSL airport's heroic snowplow conga line is having problems and Wiking's planned flight to Trondheim is delayed until who knows. Not often that happens.

Studying the diagram on starting our plow; hate the unwieldy bøgger, but using my lady-size shovel on this is just unrealistic.



Brekkers, dress dog and self, get plowing and then go out to rustle up a few hyancinths to do a Radz display.

<monosubject post. sorry>

Bluey, re your peppers. It might be that as they are different varieties one is naturally better at setting fruit than the other. Chillies are sensitive to temperature extremes and some varieties drop their flowers if it gets too hot while others just get on with it. Some also take longer to mature (a bit like blokes) and fruit better once they've grown on a bit. The other thing I would consider is whether the 'sensitive' one is getting enough plant food - might need a bit more than the fruitful variety.

Failing that, I've always found a good stiff talking-to, illustrated with pictures of the compost heap, helps to concentrate their little leafy minds wonderfully......
