Little Gems

Sometimes we all write a little gem of a post amid the flotsam and jetsam of our every day lives
Take a look at The Idiot Gardener's latest post entitled
it's a joyful read


  1. Yes, you're right.

  2. Yes, well done. Thanks for the 'lead', John.

  3. Thanks for the heads-up John.

  4. I thought I was going to read a post about lettuces here John!

  5. Thanks for the lead, John.

    I am really starting to get p++++d off with all this Google security. Maybe its beacause I am in Angola and the serrvewrs here must be well known as conduits for spam but there are less and less blogs I can post comments on.

    I tried to post a comment on the Idiot Gardener but after going through the whole rigmarole of logging on again and word verification and typing in my blood group I got: Your current account (tomgowans@flordita.com) does not have access to view this page. Please log out and sign in with another account.

    So I can read his post (and I enjoyed doing so) but I cannot commnent.

    All I wanted to tell him was that I would get him a bag of the seed the farmers use here and try and get it back to UK for him along with instructions for a successful crop.

    So I hope he swings by and reads your post and comments!

    Sorry I am using your blog as a message board, John, but blame Google accounts, racist bastards!

  6. Hippo,
    I can't leave a message, either.

    John, thanks for the heads up, it was a great read.


  7. mehgan and hippo
    I have left messages from both of u x

  8. John,

    Thanks for that and thanks once again for bringing this genuine gem to our attention.

    I read his post, 'The Difference Between Men and Women' and was already laughing. Then I went on to read the post about Lloyds TSB and had to stop, I haven't had the stents put in yet so there was a distinct possibility I was about to die laughing. And I haven't had supper yet so that would have been a shame.

  10. Thanks for that - I needed a good laugh!

    The Idiot Gardener writes a good post...the teeny tiny sweet potato was so sad...I hope he'll try again!

  12. The Comment form that the Idiot Gardener is using is the most likely reason for people not being able to Comment. I know I've said this before, but instructions for changing it (to Full Page) are on my 18 August 2011 post.

    I also think that the British growing season is too short for sweet potatoes but he could use an old Maori trick and use charcoal to keep the earth warm for a longer season. Not hot charcoal you Idiot - Heat retentive black charcoal.

  13. Did I say 18 August? I meant 17 August.

  14. You're right; that was a great post, although I must admit, when I started reading it, I thought it was written from the point of view of a turkey about to be separated from its head. (Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the U.S. so turkey is on my brain.)


I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of them
