Manuring

I'll be applying a layer of manure over the allotment ground in the next week or so. Can it be left like that or should it be dug in. Either way, can something be planted?

Re: tv license

I've got a licence but I won't sign up to their "favourites" type facility - just to be on the safe side. They always seem to me to be a bit sinister when it comes to "protecting" their service.

Midsomer Murders

I've just read the following comment about the programme - can anyone explain it? Perhaps I didn't watch during that period. "Midsomer Murders was Britain's best for years, until they strangled it to death with political correctness".

Leg shave cat

There's a stranger cat that comes into my house - I don't know anything about it except it's usually very hungry. I thought it was neglected or a stray, but today I saw it had a small shaved patch on its front right shin. I'm assuming a vet has done this and my question is simply, is that area shave...

Re: School dinners

I want to try and reproduce the pink part of the rainbow sponge pudding - somehow, I doubt fresh fruit would have been used.

Re: School dinners

I'm thinking of flavouring a cake strawberry flavour by using blancmange powder mix - what could go wrong?

Re: 5BX and XBX

It's supposed to be quite a popular excercise programme from Canada decades ago - fit450.com/HTML/XBX_Intro.html

Re: tv license

It would be better if they simply blocked access to it with a licence number being needed to enter, wouldn't it? If some programmes come up with the licence or no licence message, it's not very clear. Are there plans afoot to make a more professional arrangement, I wonder.

5BX and XBX

Can anyone make sense of the 5BX and XBX exercise regime? Is there a simplified process somewhere in the depths of the internet that I haven't found?

School dinners

Does anyone remember rainbow sponge pudding and pink custard, and where those particular recipes can be found?

tv license

I'm confused - sometimes when I try to watch bbc catchup iplayer, it asks if I have a license, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes, even if it's an English programme it isn't available even though it was aired earlier in the day (2up, 2down, for example). Can anyone explain?

Hide wires?

I have wires running on the outside of a wall up the side of the stairs that are covered with a long narrow box-like thing holding them against the wall. Is there a way to somehow tuck the wires into the wall so that it can me nice and smooth?

Re: English restaurants

What's the point of inspections then? They may as well simply stop the whole hygiene inspections farce.
