Hi Tiarnan As someone mentioned before, the flower thing, for a funeral it is an even number of flowers, odd numbers are for visiting the home of a living person. As for your question I would send leedarkwood a pm, I feel almost certain she will have the answer because she lives in a predominantly M...

Hi Phill

there is a garden centre in Obrishite, gotta watch how you say that, don't know if they do fruit trees but it is on the way from Varna to your place. Alternatively I could ask uncle Stoicho if he could find one for you, drop me a pm.

Cheers Fred.

Hi folks Last saturday the missus managed to drag me out to go and see the London Bulgarian Choir, I had heard a recording of theirs before but it didn't really do anything for me to be honest. However I was told that it was one of those things that had to be seen and not just heard, so off I went, ...
