Grock, probably the settings on Internet Explorer.

Best bet is to compare them with Lizzies puter, as you are nearby, that is if hers works OK.

Chantal wrote:Thanks for the kind thought Peat, much better thanks and if you look at the Grock's Party post the idea of never going to bed to sleep again is actually quite appealing.


Oh no, you'll set Piglets fevered imagination off with that one. :twisted:

Always look on the bright side of life.

Bed can be dangerous. Former colleague, who shall remain nameless, came in late one day, wearing jeans. Went for little chat with the boss, who went hurtling past five minutes later saying "I don't want to hear any more *****." ***** told us later that he had woken up feeling fruity and be...

That's the spirit Chantal. Buncefield made the south of England go dark damm quick.

Take a look at the third from botto...

Don't touch vermiculite for this purpose with a barge-pole. We had it around an enclosed fireplace back boiler, A fire with a door. The boiler was packed round with vermiculite and supposedly the short steel pipe out the top of the fire had a concrete collar to fix it in the chimmney. The concrete d...

Chantal, count your blessings. When it happened you were not in bed asleep, you were at home and alert, the fire brigade did sort it and you have not really lost anything, other maybe than your peace of mind. Grock, I hope you lit a candle or two, your son was SO SO fortunate to escape injury. There...

Chantal, in your latest picture you are un-clothed, good job that huge prize-winning marrow got in the way!

Grock, good to have you back, ..... again. Puter being naughty still? As an IT professional I do find that going out to the tool shed, rooting around, taking the 2lb lump hammer back indoors and introducing it nicely to the puter, with some encouraging words along the lines of !you two are going to ...

I always use an electric single full tray sized propogator for my Squash, at £1.99 for 6 seeds I've found its the only way to ensure a decent germination rate.
