    I've added a couple of links to the sidebar on the main page, which link to sister forums of this site:

    https://www.gardenpondforum.com
    https://www.diy-forums.com

    These sites were started a long time before gardening forums, and we linked to this site from those ones - so some of you are already members of there :D.

    I thought it may be worth adding the links here, as there may now be members here who own a pond that may find the other site helpful at times. The DIY forum is fairly quiet in comparison to here, but I know we have lots of DIY/Workshop enthusiasts here that may be interested too.

    Hi,

    Thanks Ian for the links. You've now sidetracked me because I was settling nicely into the gardening forum adding my assorted stories but now I've also got a DIY forum to play in; pity I'm retired with very little spare time so due to my workshop and projects I'm now spending more time on the DIY forum. :)(y)

    Kind regards, Colin.

    I subscribe to a USA dedicated site for saxophone players. At this present moment world-wide there are nearly 2000 members on line.

    The concensus of opinion is that if we spent as much time practicing as we spend on the site, then we'd all be better players.

    You do have to register but the format is the same as this board, so it's simple enough.

    @Ian thanks for the links but i'm quite satisfied with being on here with getting to know new members besides knowing old ones plus daily chores and the gardens takes my time up, if I spent all day on the internet I know what hubby would call me...a lazy C*W :LOL:

    Alan Wicker made one of his "Wicker's World" documentaries for the BBC a few decades ago. It was about a gated retirement community in Florida? which was entirely run by the residents, Security, post, fire, utilities etc.,

    He said it was, "The only place where you get up each morning with nothing to do and go to bed at night, with only half of it done."

    Hi,

    Since leaving school in 1962 I've always worked 48 days; I thought this was normal; now in retirement I need longer days. :):D

    I'm spending more time on the sister DIY forum these days due to my current projects but I keep running out of time.

    https://www.diy-forums.com/threads/metal-spinning.289525/#post-1733926

    I've really struggled to get into the workshop due to other more pressing matters but in the last two weeks I've enjoyed learning metal spinning; these new challenges keep me interested and active. (y)

    Kind regards, Colin.
