Our Gracie

I watched the docudrama about Gracie, tonight, with Jane Horrocks playing her. It was a good representation of nearly 20 years, condensed into just over an hour, and Jane Horrocks has a good voice -...

Re: Anyone selling a piano?

If they have already started lessons what are they using to practice on?

Re: Uploading Photos

I managed to upload it tonight but had to use Photobucket. It's odd that I didn't have to last time. :confused:

Re: Brown is planning to apologies

They call it collective responsibility, don't they? I suppose an apology from present governments might somehow substitute one from the governments of the day. At least it highlights the horrendous...

Re: Culinary disasters.

My elder daughter Jo, when she was about 14, made an apple crumble in Home Economics at school. She brought it home and served it up, very proudly, for our pudding that night.

Re: Gardeners ...

It's not a new discovery. A bucket in the outside loo, emptied into the compost bin, works wonders for your cabbages and leeks. :D

Re: Driving rules that people seem to have forgotten

I always give way to buses and lorries too. That's because one of the first rules of driving I learned, 40 years ago, was "Never argue with anything a lot bigger than you are". It works. :)

Re: Unwanted credit

I'm like Cashy in that my bank reduced my limit from 5000 to 3000 because I wasn't making them any money. I use my card about 6 times a year, mainly when I feel the need for the extra security a...

Re: Rhyddings School 1956

He was a nice lad, drove a milk float for the Co-op Dairy for a while in the early 60s. We used to meet at silly o clock in the morning when I was running for the bus. I always gasped Hello at him....

Re: Keeping chickens???

Keep a small pile of rotting wood in a corner of the pen (one plank would do) and turn it over every week or so. The beetles, worms, grubs and bugs that are turned up will delight your hens and add...
