    'How does your garden grow?'

    It did have a pillion seat Ben, it were a Raleigh Supermatic I believe. I used to sit back and lean forward to lower wind resistance. That way I could achieve 40mph. Gotta admit, never thought about girls in those days. Soon changed me mind though !

    'How does your garden grow?'

    I once had a little motorbike, this was before the days of mods/rockers ( whatever they are !). Thought I were the bees knees til I fell off. Soon said goodbye to it. It were a 125cc James cadet. Got meself a Raleigh moped instead.

    'How does your garden grow?'

    Thank you SG, for your reply. It will be interesting to see how you get on. You can always send one to Gem for her miniatures. For myself, where I work, it's the opposite end of the scale, mostly Sequoia Gigantium ( Giant Redwood)., or 400 year old oaks, (still bearing fruit). B.

    Moon landings

    Despite conspiracy theories I’m certain there’s sufficient evidence to confirm that the Americans visited the moon. They did try to open a pub there but it failed to attract customers because there was no atmosphere.

    Possibly and the ET’s told us not to go back!

    'How does your garden grow?'

    In answer to BK, it wont be a small bonsai tree, love them but too much trouble to do. It will be about 2’ high, just a case of keep taking off new growth so it becomes a miniature tree. (Will try and get a picture when she looks a bit healthier but not promising as I have only managed to get pictures on site once despite numerous attempts following the same instructions.) Going to get an acorn from the woods we go in and try it with an oak, I just love them. I have never “gardened” before but am rapidly collecting a lot of plants and repotting etc, suppose it isn’t real gardening but am becoming obsessed. I find myself gravitating towards the plants in the supermarkets we go to. I have got a quote (ouch!) to get front and back garden paved so will just have pots in back garden. At the rate I am going it will become a full time job looking after them and repotting the ones my boys knock over whilst investigating/running around them.

    Moon landings

    So 50 years on, did they really step foot on the moon & why have we not been back?

    'How does your garden grow?'

    I have been gifted a Venus flytrap with no instructions, until someone actually told me what it was I was going to transplant it into my bee garden. Bee garden means large patch of weeds according to my family, which is what it's supposed to be.

  24. Might've been the series 'Bedrock' which was filmed at Central TV in the early 90s. Several bands were recorded, including a number who reformed for the occasion. All concerts used to be available on DVD but they seem to have disappeared. The only one I can find is Caravan https://www.zoom.co.uk/product/access_all_areas_caravan_album_with_dvd_cd?gclid=CjwKCAjwmtDpBRAQEiwAC6lm42GTdM-BGdh5fLkai2ZzCJ0LDB8gSfD6h7shl1c0qzYKOl-dxZvRkRoC4ZkQAvD_BwE

    Buses in Nottingham

    Cliff Ince was a Trent bus driver at Mansfield and later Sutton Junction at the time I was there. He was also a PSV instructor as well. He was ex Midland General possibly Mansfield District (Green 'uns) as well. He is likely to be retired now.
