I'm enjoying this thread, mainly, I think, because of the many positive comments about Bulgaria, it's people and it's culture. It takes me back 30 odd years when, for some years, each Springtime would find me throwing stuff into a back-pack, picking up the guitar, and heading into Europe or Scandina...

OK: first of all - Question number 5. What is wrong about ''3 points on a triangle?'' It's correct in every detail, and is less ambiguous that tines and prongs. We elected to enter the triangle, as tridents have tines and not prongs, so, as far as we were concerned, it being incorrect, we ruled out ...

Out for a stroll one early spring, in North Devon a few years ago, I was lucky enough to see three adders, out getting a bit of sunshine. They ranged from a pale chocolaty brown and whiteish at one end of the spectrum, to black at the other, with something in between, for good measure. Prior to that...

Good grief, Villyman, hadn't you noticed? They'd argue about anything, on here.

I agree with Fred: when most of the large petrol stations have tables and chairs for customers to stop and take a coffee or snack, I'm sure a garden centre would be able to provide the same. You said, ''anymore ideas of plants people would buy?'' Spantrout: I haven't looked to see where you are, but...

In an effort to keep this on the front page, I'd like to say that we're in the same situation as you, Peli. 19 answers we're pretty sure of, and one with a couple of suggestions that don't quite make sense. Me, I'm blaming it on the Captain, as I reckon he's missed out a letter in the clue. Norman D...

Hell DD. Hope all's well with you. Personally, I'd go with the bgboo option, and get Mike to knock one up for you. After all, it's only a little shed you're looking for, not much bigger than a kennel for a Karakachan dog. 3 years ago, friends of ours built a woodshed, 6mts X 4 mts, (and I helped a l...

................Unless you leave the UK on health grounds, and have a doctor who will confirm that. In such a case, your UK tax may be reduced. Personally, I remember telling my doctor that the UK was bad for my health. His response was that he thought the UK was bad for everybody's health. Many a t...
