Re: Why do my Rose Flowers die after a day

Hi,

Ta. They are in direct sunlight in a south facing garden. I'll see how they go next year then probably replace for something else if it keeps happening.

Are 20 Euro notes from 2002 still valid?

Hi,

Are 20 euro notes still valid that were issued in 2002. I've not been on holiday in the eurozone for a while but just opened my suitcase to find some old notes?

Thanks

Why do my Rose Flowers die after a day

Hi,

I planted a rose bush in a large container earlier in the year. Its grown well and has plenty of buds, however when they bloom they literally bloom and die within 48hrs. Is this normal? I'm by no means a gardener btw, I just stuck the bush in a large container for a bit of colour.

Thanks

Finally got the update mentioned above installed

But now the next update KB4093112 won't install.

Re: Windows 10 Update Failed

A trivial point: if you are using Outlook (i.e. chargeable desktop Outlook) and your email account (or all of them if you have several) are either IMAP or 'Exchange', and - if IMAP - your calendars and contacts are stored remotely, your reinstall should be easy: IMAP and Exchange will rebuild your ...

KB number?

And which version of 10 are you on - the latest is 1803 17134.137

Check using:

Hi

OS Build: 16299.309

KB4023057 has failed

I guess this update is blocking any further updates from completing?

Asylum Seekers

In 2016 Japan had around 11,000 applications and accepted 28. In contrast the UK had around 30,000 applications and initially accepted 8.5k w...
