Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Boris in intensive care (critical care), brings home how serious this infection is. He always looked a strong and healthy sort of person who would shake off this condition in quick time. I hope he pulls through without any after effects. His condition certainly made me think about taking more string...

Re: Gardening

A bit of destructive heavy gardening in yesterday's sunshine. A lonesome pine slightly in the way of a good view but had been planted directly above the electricity lines to both our and our neighbours houses. Our neighbour's tidying of his stretch had brought the cables to the surface meaning they ...

Back to masks. Any single ply of woven fabric will have 'holes' in them that a virus of nano particle size will just fly through as though it didn't exist. The filters in aircraft are a pad of material much like a bundle of wire wool between fabric sides. The idea is that although there is a way thr...

Re: Old fashioned clean jokes

Mrs P got the 'garden' one from our next door neighbour. She replied that I was taking a tree out at the bottom of the garden, roots and all, and it would leave a big hole. To which the reply was. 'Good I'll know where to look". Sounded like she had a plan for her own hubby. I think I'll leave the t...

Stanley, I think you know the best way of helping yourself and helping the NHS is not to catch the bloody virus. Its people who carry the virus so keep away from them. You have already said that neighbours have offered assistance so take them up on it. I agree 'official' help can be a nuisance and c...

I gave up trying to edge it with the spade, far too tough and strenuous.
Have you tried one of the rounded edging spades. these make life a lot easier where you can overlap the cuts taking advantage of the previous cut. If you have a lot of lawn they are well worth the investment.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Both Gloria and BigKev are on turbo charge Lots of images on google First went to the Medievil Banquet Banquet years ago. My pal and his wife were promoted to Lord and Lady. A big mistake on their part, a raving dipsomaniac with a throat like a sink. Must have cost them a fortune for the free booze.

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Ex smokers are the worst preachers. Those who have never smoked just shake their heads and leave it at that.

I did read that lungs tend to start repairing the damage after about 4 years of stopping smoking. All is not lost. :good:
