Re: National Secular Society & Military Chaplins

the support from chaplains (all faiths not just CofE) is important to serving military

Like food, pay, equipment and accomodation, chaplains are a part of the crown's pact with those they send to war

Re: Celeriac problems,advice needed please!

have you tried pulling one and working round the holes? seems a shame to have them go to waste (really wish I'd planted some this year as it should have been perfect weather with all the rain)

Re: What colour is your front door?

Sort of Teal shade I guess, bluey green , two wired glass bubbly panels above two wooden panels, and a clear skylight above. It's 100 years old and is original to the house.

Re: It's ... it's ...

I'd be interested if anyone has collected data over a longish period of time to see if average temps etc have changed. Erm - longish period? How old do you think we are here? With someone having a panic at being 30 :mrgreen: I'm not certain that the ishers here are old enough to be able to answer t...
