Re: Stupidly cheap car hire - how does this work?

Do a search on" Goldcar reviews" and that will tell you all you need to know about them. Cannot comment on the other companies.

What makes you think I regard him as a rôle model? It is possible to quote someone's views while despising them.

Re: 72 days to go: Head of Remain says time to Brexit.

Simple messsge, repeated often, wins the day. Ah yes, the big lie. Joseph Goebbells got there before you: If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. and, probably more relevant: The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular...

Owen.



Why not, they have paid for the state pension just like any other employee.

Courgettes

Another pollination problem! My courgette plants this year are producing nearly all female flowers, so most of them are not getting pollinated. Only one male flower in the last fortnight, masses of female. I did not have this problem last year, using the same packet of seeds as this year. Variety is...

Re: Crazy petunias

Done a bit more research on petunia seed setting, and it seems some modern varieties are sterile (the term is self-cleaning), but some set seed. The wave varieties are not self-cleaning. My wave plant has now almost stopped flowering so I have given it a good trim to try to restart it. The Sanguna p...

Re: Crazy petunias

Not sure if you need to deadhead them, I thought the F1 hybrids were sterile. I usually get the Surfina varieties, but find them a bit too vigorous. F1 hybrids aren't always sterile - they may simply revert, or they may produce random/unstable progeny. I was able to test the deadheading principle b...

Not a very promising title for a thread, is it? But these new Californian things have been dropping my jaw this year. Subtle they ain't :lol: , but what a display for a planter. They're called Tidal Wave Red Velour, which sounds more like a racehorse than a bedding plant, and they go berserk if you...

Re: Boris Johnson PM - how it's going?

malkymoo, I expect that the combined Conservative/Brexit Party share of the vote in the Brecon by election will amount to about 50%, but the Tories will not win the seat. This will be a useful lesson for them. Owen. Thank you for your thoughts. I think the combined Conservative/Brexit Party/UKIP sh...

Re: Present ideas for friends in the US

What's the superstition about giving a knife? The superstition is that It is bad luck to make a gift of a knife or scissors, however it is ok if the receiver makes a nominal payment such as a penny, so that it is no longer a gift. Similarly, it is bad luck to make a gift of an empty purse, the give...

Re: Boris Johnson PM - how it's going?

I agree with Wizard that the Tory’s are unlikely to win the Brecon by election, due to the particular circumstances surrounding this event. Once Brexit has been delivered, it will be a different story. Owen. Once again, would you care to give us a figure, purely for amusement. The word is Tories, b...

The Boris bounce has started to work. The Tory’s are already 10% up in the opinion polls, and their support will soon reach 40% plus with the backing of the Brexit Party.
