A nation of hoarders

It seems that if you want a good way to make money - then set up a site with storage facilities . It's the way that people store all their stuff that doesn't fit in their homes. Excuse me. Have I missed something here? I suppose that there are some circumstances but I am completely bemused if truth ...

Re: Summer's coming

It might be that the rain stops today. Mind you - it has supposed to be wet all week and yesterday was the first day it rained. And it rained properly. Still the possibility of light frost in the coming days.

Summer? :lol:

I don't know how ....

I don't know how the other half lives. I go to an over 60s chat club once a week for 9.5 months of the year here in the village (we have a summer break while the leaders do the next programme). Half of the group are totally IT illiterate but can wield the TV channel changer a treat and look at me as...

Re: Watch out! It's still hanging around.

Ooooh I was going to ask how MKG got a bed that big into the house. And where he bought the bedding for it from. Then I realised he was talking mere gardening .....

Re: Summer's coming

If someone would switch off the easterly wind we might even see the end of spring and the start of summer here.

Re: RAIN !!

We had sleety rain yesterday with snow up on the hills; looks like more of the same today. What fun. As ina says, so much to do outside - on the allotments in my case.
