  1. Interesting shaped vegetables - post yours

    I lost the photograph so you'll have to imagine this - a round, reddish cucumber about 7 cm diameter.  My wife had planted cucumbers very close to tomatoes and that was the result.  I can't understand it and nobody believes me.
  2. Where are the topics?

    Sorry dpatz, having senior moments here any chance you can put an arrow?  
  3. UK Election night watching?

    Our of the country over 15 years you can't vote.  Luckily only ten for me so my proxy is in. Re. the OP, I shall keep well away from news until Friday 13th - I am terrified of the result.  I hope I shall not need my diazepam.
  4. Where are the topics?

    I'm trying to figure out if somewhere in the above posts, there's a cryptic message replying to my question.
  5. How come this forum says 464 topics in this forum but it is empty and also says   "There are no topics in this forum yet." Where the hell are the topics?
  6. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

    I was wondering if this thread was ever going back on topic. So how many photos have been posted, four?  
  7. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

    A Greek joke on the subject. An angel comes down to Earth and goes around telling people "I grant you a wish but whatever you ask for, your neighbour will get double."  The first place he got to in Greece was a farm.  He asked the farmer the question.  The farmer thought for a minute and replied "Take out one of my eyes."
  8. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

    I'm refering to the fact that it states kB i.e. kilo bytes as above and in the warning it states kb i.e. kilo bits.
  9. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

    My wife had named the three trees "The Three Graces".
  10. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

    OK, let's try again. Thanks @PandaMunich and since you appear to be knowledgeable, do you know if it's 240kb or 240kB?  
  11. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

    Many years ago I had to do a job at the air base there.  I finished very early in the morning and decided to walk to Heraklion.  The amazing scent of the flowers, herbs and trees along the road reminded me of Kazantzaki's Report to Greco, which I had read not long before.  I understand what you mean. As for the view I shall miss when I leave, next month is sitting in my terrace looking out on my garden.  There's no way I shall have something like that in blighty, not unless I win a huge amount in the lottery.   Off topic, unfortunately I have tried to upload a photo but the goddam thing won't let me instead here is what I get. Oops, sorry I have to go and resize this too. Well, I've resized it to 7.22kB and it still tells me that I can't upload more than 245kb even though below the Choose files link it says up to 240kB.    
  12. What's stopping you now and I don't mean the Hacienda.

    Mission accomplished. Got to the theatre, the bookcase was almost empty. So loaded it up. Frankfurters enjoy.
