    The busy life of a retiree...
    Haven't looked at the fig tree in the last few days. For the first 5 years of its life we got nothing off it, then one fig one year. Last year we got 3 figs.
    Up until Saturday I'd picked about half a dozen. Haven't looked at it since then. Have just picked 5 more.

    Then tied up some of our heritage tomatoes that I only started growing a few weeks back from a mouldy one I found at the back of the fridge.
    Said hello to the guineafowl, but forgot to check the chickens for more eggs.
    That's next on the list after I get a taxi ordered.

    So I am having problems with the forum on my mac - (using both Opera and Chrome)

    Firstly it was the too many redirects.

    The it would only ever take me to the first page of the thread - which is often fine - except for this one - clicking the last button took me back to the first page...

    Seems fine on my windows laptop though (using chrome) .




    All seems back to normal now.. (13.30)

    Chicken and barley soup for lunch. Wholemeal toast only due to forgetting to buy a white loaf last week, but still very nice

    I need to roast a chicken so I can make some more soup, as that was the last of it in the freezer.

    Forum seems to have recovered

    And the clouding over is finally underway, with the west now grey

    One of the Tomes (the 880 pager) just reminded me of the adverts for "Signal Toothpaste, the toothpaste with hexachlorophene in the stripes".

    Apparently hexachlorophene is implicated in brain damage which explains a lot.

    Ah, more innocent days, dear dead days beyond recall.

    Hexachlorophene gets a mention in a Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band song as a result of those commercials
