    Thank you Jane, thought that the 32 tolls was a nice touch, for the 29 who died and then 2 for the unborn twins and a last one for all victims. :rose:

    No, can’t see it will ever be forgotten Sheila but most of us are glad that there will be no more “official” services. They were always taken over by the media and people being interviewed. A lot of us pay our respects quietly before or after for that reason. We can now reclaim it peacefully and gently. I took flowers to the memorial gardens this…[Read more]

    Morning Clickers, a pleasant dry morning here and, thankfully, yesterday’s wind has dropped a bit. A few spits and spots due but forecast looking reasonable. Tomatoes coming fast and furious now, so some soup and sauce making on the cards today. :good: Off for a swim shortly so have a good day all. :-)

    • Am terrorised by the vast quantities of tomatoes that I am picking every two days – the Losetto have to be used quickly because of their tendency to split when ripe. I’m not really expecting any betterment in the weather today – same old, same old Atlantic rain. Going to sort out the big DF tomorrow before soup making. Have a lovely day, Karen.

    • Morning Karen and Sheila :-) lucky, you two, at having loads of tomatoes – this is my worst year :-( Enjoy the day both :-)

      • After enjoying four ripened ones from the doomed Tumbling Tom I too have no tomatoes :disappointed: Lucky you Sheila :-) :rose:

    Sounds like a good day Lynn, :good: Bees all ok?

    • Hi Karen, we thinks so, they are still making honey and the queen is till laying, but we need a further inspection as they are very good comb builders and have built the comb in-between the frames making it difficult to check!!! Thankgoodness for bee suits :good:

    Great news on the spuds Tony, :good: What was it about parsnips this year? It was only my final (3rd sowing in May!) that actually have grown. :confused:

    20th anniversary service today Lynn & I think it will be the last “official” one. It becomes a media circus and that is not what we want. Most just want to quietly remember. But this tribute, made at the time from footage shot by local people and put together by the Northern Ireland BBC news team I’ve always thought was very moving.

    Thanks Al, don’t know how the producer and editor managed to make this without falling apart.

    It’s been a hard day in Omagh so please forgive me for posting this. If you watch it you will need tissues, lots of them, but it is done as a tribute to my little town and all of her people.

    Morning Dix, :good: on the Charlottes. I’d like to get my main crops through another 2 weeks, but the Kestrels are looking good. :-)

      Morning Karen and Jane, overcast here to but the sun getting through now and then, dug up the last of the Charlotte spuds yesterday, very pleased with them. :-)

    Morning Clickers, very cloudy but no rain just at the minute, so might get the spuds sprayed again later on. A bit of work to clear this morning and a short visit to town this afternoon, then garden time. Have a good day all. :-)

    • Morning Karen :-) hope you have a good one and can have a nice afternoon outside. Not sure what I’m up to as yet but no work in or expected – no complaints there ;-)

    Morning Sheila and Cilla pretty grey here too Bean, but at least it is dry – for now. We’ve had quite a bit of rain here so quite happy for you to have some of mine as well Cilla. :lol: Need to try and get hold of Duncan, the site was dire last night. :-(

    What a lovely neat front door Cilla. :good: Enjoy your tomato day. ;-)
