Oh, him - what have lemmings to do with him?  I'm obviously missing something, sorry Seth!

I'll try that again!

Allegedly Lemmings over populate then migrate till they reach a Cliff and commit hari- kari  . Wake up at the back !        runaway

Seed catalogues are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than the web and playboy combined . (after Michael Perry)

I grew ginger once- did not know it should be part out of the soil- it grew a green stalk but never saw a flower- probably that's why- thanks for that info.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Sorry, I obviously didn't have my thinking head on yesterday!

 

I hope it works for you Martin.

I'll try that again!

 If I find fresh ginger at a bargain price  I store some of it in dry sherry, that way I can take it out & grate or chop it for whatever dish I am making plus I have the flavoured sherry to use in my Chinese stir-fry dishes etc. I hate running out of it, so I have used this method for years & years & it has never let me down.

A dim girl yesterday obviously!  I'll put it down to not being well - I thought I would be able to hear somewhat today as I had partial hearing last night but it has almost all gone again.  So frustrating.

I'll try that again!

Well, I have chicken soup every day with lots of garlic in it.  Even my Elderberry syrup has let me down.  To be fair though, this is a bacterial infection, not a viral one.

I'll try that again!
