Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Good question! My compost probably gets a year at least to rot down.
Originally called Tea Scented China Roses because the blossoms smelled of a freshly opened packet of China tea. :smile:

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Not sure Sue but they disappear in my compost! Perhaps because we use cheap ones from Aldi :laugh5: Tea bags are another matter, they go in the bin.

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Just a thought about the single quotation marks, could it be because they are apostrophes not quotation marks that they show an error?

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

You are so lucky being able to recycle soft plastic. I'm lucky to have large compost bins in the garden! All my kitchen waste (except meaty things and there isn't much of that) goes out to the compost including paper towels used to wipe up fat and small paper items like shop receipts.

I love Vera too! Try reading the books that the TV series is based on. The author Ann Cleves also wrote the Shetland books, on which another wonderful tv series is based. She has now put both Vera and Shetland to one side and is starting with a new character in Cornwall I think.

There is more conflicting information there than I can handle. Me too. :smile: - but I'm a simple soul, and when something manifestly doesn't make sense you've got to give it some thought. This article helps to explain the process. Colin fell out with the local low carb group because the chap in ch...

Metformin doesn't work on a meal to meal basis, it has a cumulative effect on the liver and its release of glucose into the blood.

Re: Sandhole farm

Still there Sue but called Sand Hall on current OS maps. I was thrown by the name Moss House on that map, as the Moss House Farm I know is the other side of Foulridge. That Moss House now seems to be called Holly Bush Farm! Some lovely walking in that area.

All pig classes at the Great Yorkshire Show have been cancelled because one pig showed signs of illness at a recent show. There must be concern in the pig breeding community.
