Latest post of the previous page:

It attracts birds especially in winter. They drink and bath and so on,
It is buzzing with shagging frogs in the shagging season - over 50 all splashing about on the surface at one count. It provides water for any anumal that cannot getit anwhere including cats, fox, and so on.
It occasionally attracts our local heron and there are all sorts of insects and mozzies and weedy things and fish of course and hopefully a toad and definitley a newt which is never pissed.

Yes, I have one and have made them when I've moved to a house where there isn't a lawn I love the greenness, the way it sets off flower beds, and the smell of grass when its cut.





Who mows the lawn?

I don't post on any very often these days but occasionally on iidb, heathen hangout, a couple of other freethinker boards, a couple of poker boards and an ADHD one.

Absolutely not, I'd be too terrified of the surgeon's knife. That said,if my teeth, which are currently very good, got damaged or started to look nasty I would contemplate cosmetic dentistry.

Probably that my Maltese grandad died before I was born so I never got a chance to meet him. From what others have said, he seems to have been some character.

Never having had any fashion sense whatsoever, the answer is either that I have avoided fashion disasters, or alternatively that I am the living personification of a continuous fashion disaster.




As Beki was hoping for something more exciting than that, i will repeat the question for her:

Some of us were around in the 60s :grin:

I used to wear a fur wainscot (think William Tell) I made it from an old fur coat from the charity shop.
Mary had an elaborately embroidered Afghan coat.

I think somebody else should come clean on this subject :nod:

Ok, I was high fashion in the 70s. Think long flowing skirts, frilly regency style blouses and big rimmed floppy hats. Long hair everywhere and huge black makeup round the eyes. All finished off with platform boots. :nod:

I have Cannon A540 digital camera and I'm not a bad photographer at all for a layman. I like to take more of the art shots, but have worked hard to fit into the more accepted constraints because people keep complaining about how fat they look or how they hate their profile or how they weren't ready and mostly that person is my wife.

What do you revere and detest about your upbringing?

Revere: My parents for being such strong characters and role models who instilled in me a sense of self-worth and confidence.
Detest: The bitter divorce that they went through and the fact that they still find it difficult to speak to each other nearly 25 years later :sad:

A small document file which has all our certificates, passports etc. Because they are the hardest to replace.

No but I accidentally set off an alarm at work which called the fire brigade automatically. All I did was burn a piece of toast in the kitchen. :redface:

Three times, with the same kid back in grade school. He instigated it each time on successive days after school just to prove he wasn't the weakest kid in grade 2. I guess it was between he and I. The first night I bested him gently. When he came back for more I realised he needed to be properly taught that lesson so I beat him soundly. I was stunned when he insisted on trying again on the third day so I kicked the living shit right out of him and got strapped by the principal, presumably for being the winner.

Think it's something to do with the rats tails, and that they are bigger. A R4 prog last week suggested disliking rats was a disgust reflex honed to protect from infection. But personally can't stand either of them.

In our house back in England we had a severe case of ants, the big buggers with wings! A couple of years later we had a huge wasps nest under the eaves.
Fortunately we had a good friend and neighbor (originally from Aberdeen) who worked for Rentakill.
