Hi Peter, I hope you are feeling better now. During my recent absence from visiting the forum I too had a kidney stone problem. Very painful, as previously mentioned I am led to believe it is similar to childbirth. I reminded my wife of this a fortnight ago when she was in labour (pah, she had Entin...

As of this month, old tyres can no longer be disposed of in landfill. Whilst this is great for encouraging industry to find better ways of recycling, I fear it will also increase the occurrence of tyres being dumped by the roadside, in hedges, on allotments, in gardens, etc, etc, etc. The ideas for ...

When I saw the title of this one I was expecting something along the lines of the recent news items regarding the influx of foreign fruit pickers to the country!

(Apologies to any members of French origin, just couldn't resist it!)

If I recall correctly, Monty Don's comment was something along the lines that as long as the detergents are non-biological, they will be OK for grey water use.

Whoops! :o Looks like I sparked a debate about the rights and wrongs of football and flag flying. I didn't mean to - honest Mr PH. I was just expressing a personal preference. If people want to enjoy other things, that's fine, just as long as they aren't interfering with anyone else. Apologies if an...
