• Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves?

    Have just been watching on Ch 5 and there were bits in it that I have never seen before! Like when the Sheriff of Nottingham meets the leader of the Scottish Rebels for the first time! Did anyone else notice this??

  • Little black beetles in my garden?

    I have recently moved house and found little "anthills" in my block paving in the front garden. On closer inspection I noticed little black beetles, about the size of ladybirds, scuttling in and out of the mounds of earth. Are they friends of the garden or should I be trying to eradicate them?

    I have recently moved house and found little "anthills" in my block paving in the front garden. On closer inspection I noticed little black beetles, about the size of ladybirds, scuttling in and out of the mounds of earth. Are they friends of the garden or should I be trying to eradicate them? I have lots of mature plants in the garden (the previous owner was a keen gardener) and would like to keep it looking nice if possible.

    ... does that normally mean ending with a purl row (assuming you are knitting stocking stitch)? I have just started knitting again after 30 years and can't remember!!!! It is very confusing!

    Hiya Is anyone else having problems uploading photos to Facebook at the moment? A couple of problems: 1 I use the Facebook photo uploader but it uploads about 5 of each photograph. When I delete the spares, it adds more. 2 I cancel the operation then try again and FB just freezes. 3 Somehow it puts me in another mode and asks me to upload using the simple uploader - 5 at a time (no good when you have more than 5 to upload!) 4 Then it all freezes again. I cancel the operation but find that the photos have been uploaded anyway. It is sooooo frustrating ... is anyone else having problems and, if so, have you found any solutions? Thanks

    Out of curiosity, are there any Chelsea fans out there who have been able to get tickets for tomorrow's game yet don't have a season ticket or enough points? The reason I ask is because I am a Chelsea fan living in Portsmouth and there are a plethora of tickets floating around. I have been offered tickets for the final but all in the Portsmouth end ... not a good idea!!! The local radio stations down here are practically giving them away as is the local paper. Is the same thing happening in London and on London local radio stations/papers? I would be interested to know. It would appear that the allocation of tickets is not worked out right - let's face it, there are more Chelsea season ticket holders than there are actual Portsmouth fans who go to Fratton Park ... yet both teams get the same allocation (Pompey have actually just been given an extra 1000 yesterday!) They can't give them away!

    Instead of putting all his faith in his sadly underperforming team, is now praying that Wigan will perform a miracle at Stamford Bridge to help ManUre win the title. Bit sad, eh? Chelsea are not praying that ManUre will lose - they will play to win .... 4 - 0 to Chelsea methinks! Com On You Blues ....

  • English Premier League title and trophy?

    Hopefully it will be sorted beforehand (in Chelsea's favour, hopefully!) but if the title does go to the last match of the season, where will the trophy be as ManUre are at home as are Chelsea? Surely the PL will want to present the trophy on that day and can't be in two places at once??

Once upon a time people couldn't wait for Tuesday lunchtimes to find out who is No 1 in the charts - now you have never heard of half of the acts in the charts. No one ever stays in the "top 10" for longer than a fortnight. It's a shame ... perhaps I am hankering for the old days! I might be a 50 yr old granny but I still love music. What do you think?
