Turn the rust of hate back into passion.
It's not water into wine
But it's here, and it's happening.

Fab, excellent post.

(Also, I watched that episode of Ed Byrne, Live At The Apollo that's on in the background, it was very good!)

I'm going to try to sell some of my tomato seedlings in the village shop, this is perfect.

If you want to be able to move your pots a air bit, I would use 2 or 3 sheets of paper to fold ;)
Ed Byrne.... :love:

Ooh, I love this thread. I love The Levellers, Ed Byrne, cottage industry, origami, the works. What's not to love?

Funny, I went to the gym yesterday (bit of a shock to the system, I can tell you, and listened to the whole of Levelling The Land. What a coincidence. Plastic Jeezus - best song ever!  ;D

Good Gods don't move to Glastonbury, home of the Plastic Pagans, The Brew Crew and The Hags of Avalon :o :o :o :o :o

It's a lovely place but the cosmic bullshitters and street drinkers spoil it for everyone :(
There is a stone circle on the festival site here in Pilton, lovely place ;D

I used to live not far from Glastonbury.  Wouldn't want to live any closer.

So it's not just me then, I sometimes think I'm just anti social and wasn't socialised properly as a pup, but (most of) the people there drive me to distraction!


and they let their dogs run riot to the point I can't take mine when I go as they get attacked .... mutter mutter mutter >:( :D
