    Does no one want a garden anymore?

    You could be right actually; people already shopninline for groceries, takeaways are very popular, and I know my daughter and her uni friends sometimes have hot food delivered. Kitchens aren’t the necessity they once were.

    Mmmmm.....strange indeed. We have a huge garden, big enough to build a couple of houses on ironically. 🙂

    I do realise it’s all for profit, what I meant by ‘I just don’t get it’ and the question ‘why’ , was why don’t people want gardens anymore? As much as I’m sure those four bedroomed houses are very swish with all mod cons as the saying goes, why are they selling without gardens ? They were in fact sold before completion! There isn’t even anywhere for kids to play! If I found my dream house and could afford it, I still wouldn’t buy it if it had no garden.

    I have to agree; that's how I see it too, which is why the roads are almost single track and people have to park with two wheels on the kerb in order for traffic to pass.
  5. I grew up in a modest semi detached with an average sized garden which my parents ( primarily my Dad ) constantly cultivated so we had a goodly supply of in season food, and almost every house in my small home town does indeed have a garden. The allotments fell into disrepair decades ago, and a housing development I remember being built in the late 1960's early 1970's have small but useable gardens. A developer has built five houses and is in the process of building another five ( can't do it altogether as that would mean building affordable ones....no profit in that! ) and none have gardens. Each has a small drive for a car and a small patch of grass at the rear. The same developer has just completed four, four bedroomed houses with garages, squeezed onto a very small former field with admittedly great views and a small parking space and a tiny triangular piece of grass at the rear. These houses are in excess of 400k each, there is what appears to be less than two metres space between each one and there are no gardens. I just don't get it. A recent and ongoing development of over 100 houses in my home town has houses of every size and shape, but no gardens. Why?

    Untrained terrier

    My Border was never trained; but she would stop to the whistle and return to the whistle, but I always got the impression it was only if there was nothing else she would rather be doing. She would work hedgerows brilliantly, was a ****** for pegging birds, and would return all manner of creatures including geese from the river, and clays which we'd missed. She was one of the team whether beating or shooting, and would run herself ragged; first into the duck pond and last out, and I ignored her tail at my peril. She was in demand for ratting, which she loved, and would chase hare and roe and despite never catching either was the eternal optimist. She is often talked about fondly by my mates who knew her, and we will more often than not end up laughing out loud and in turn shaking our heads in wonder at some of her exploits, and I cried like a baby when she died. My only consolation is that she lived a life meant for terriers. It's over two years since she died and I still miss her and she is still on my daughters iPhone screen. I'd dearly love another but I fear I'd forever be comparing it to her.

    I'm not keen on key safes, but each to their own.

    I know this thread is almost five years old, and I realise the OP meant a vented rib, but regarding the barrels, I've always known them as 'ported' rather than 'vented'.

    Stock oil

    I seem to have misplaced my little bottle of stock oil and have had it so long I can't recall the name of it. Anyone recommend a good one?

    😂 There speaks a man who knows! Mine was trained...eventually, but did suffer from selective hearing. How I miss her. 😢
