NOTES
Red Clover mentioned the other day about the 'Live Traffic Feed' in my sidebar and it reminded me of something I keep meaning to say which is that I notice that I have a friend in Japan who keeps on popping in to see us, they never leave a comment so I never get the chance to thank them for visiting so I will say thanks and hope that you continue to get pleasure from your visits.


COMMENTS FROM THE POTTING SHED
Sara Hadrians Wall is a bit of a milestone on the Pennine Way walk and I have to confess to feeling a little cheated when I get there and see what is on offer these days. I now consider myself lucky after reading your comment cos you were definitely cheated because there is a lot more to see than grassy hills. Apart from the wall there are remains several forts and camps to be viewed, Housteads being one such place.

Oh yes, I did just have lettuce in my sandwich.
The Weaver of Grass I don’t have much trouble with slugs in the garden, I think they all live in the greenhouse where they eat all my seedlings If I don’t watch out.
Matron I don’t know about the Film as I haven’t seen it but if they stopped to do anything they were probably like me and just stopped for a rest cos they were nackered.

Blime, I've just looked at that feed thing. I didn't realise what it was before. That's scary - not many visitors use Linux so my visits are rather distinctive. Hmm. Not that I spend ages gawping or anything, but it hadn't occurred to me that this or another site could monitor it like that.

Hi, Robert - I read your comment for the 16th and realized you were talking about ME! ha! I'm an American living in Japan, one hour north of Tokyo. I quite faithfully read your blog thanks to an add-on to Mozilla Firefox by the name of Morning Coffee. It fetches blogs for me every day. I read Vicky's (sp?)blog too. I really enjoy your explanations of the things you do each day. It lights a fire under me to get out in my own garden and work. This is only the second time I've ever commented on someone's blog. The net is getting complicated! Facebook I'm starting to get used to but Twitter drives me crazy!
Have a great weekend! I'll be popping in soon.
