I was tempted to treat this as a joke, but it is true, hope we see the verdict in the mass media.

Do not put off thanking people when they have helped you, as they may not be there to thank later.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

As I'd bought all those seed potatoes the other day I thought I had better make a bed to put them in. Would be good if it always dug like this in January. I'll sheet it over later until planting time.

That looks super Geoff. I think it will be a month or six weeks before I get things looking as spick and span.
