Hey, I really like the photo on Reto's frappr

 

Apply fertiliser liberally, and water in well! Oops!

 

Peter.

 

Thanks for the tip Peter. It really works! This is a different variety from those Reto has--no shell. Tell me, when is it safe to harvest? Will it continue to ripen on my widow sill if it's still a little green?

Anyone have any anglo seed?

Yummy, Jum! Here in the frozen northlands all that green looks delectable! :P

Yes, well around here, climate is not a problem but raccoons, deer, and small children are. To protect my crop I use a lot of concertina wire.

We were told that concertina-making was a "cottage industry". Now the truth is out; it's actually a "cottage garden" industry! :o Harvest early, and you get a miniature, harvest late and it's a big bass, whilst most of us go for an intermediate size.

 

Must give "Uncle Colin" some more Anglo seeds. B)

 

Regards,

Peter.

Gives a new perspective on the term "hybrid concertina". :D

 

Has anybody yet tried to apply genetic engineering to them? Oh right, the Anglodeon and the Franglo! :)

 

What do you get when you cross a Crabb with a Crane? A flying crustacean? A bird that flies sideways? Nope, just some really wonderful duet concertinas. ;)

I wonder why Morgana (Ptollemy) has a pink symbol rather than a blue one?

 

Because on the day that she (and a canadian member) joined, the key was not working and she couldn't choose a type of instrument. I wrote to them to ask them to re-join (which should overwrite and correct the problem) but she hasn't done it yet.

............I think I'm the Canadian who joined today.........seemed to work OK.

It's fun..........the only problem I had was that I couldn't find a pic. of myself doing something sophisticated,like playing a concertina. So I posted one of myself in the Good Samaritan, in the East End of London, having a pint of London Pride. That's a little bit sophisticated, isn't it ?

I'm in. Robin was first so I suspect mine isn't showing up yet. There is the other Robin in Montreal also.

At this moment 10.30 pm Saturday (Queensland Australia time = 12.30 pm GMT) there are 66 members. I note that there are twice as many anglos (or should that be Anglos) as English concertinists.

 

I note a great gap in Northeast England, the modern heartland of the English concertina.

 

If we all (including me) get stuck in, the pins are going to be pretty dense there.

I joined Frappr today, and would be happy to add everyone to my map and all that, but, not only do I have a resistance lately to figuring out new things (websites, electronic gadgets, whatever), but the site moves VERY slowly for me.

 

It's partly my computer....we have dial-up, now (fine with me). But, I think it's also the site, Frappr, since other sites move along a bit more quickly.

 

So....anyway....I'm there, but I don't know how much I'll be able to develop my page there.

 

I get along a bit more quickly at Care2.com, and that has the potential for making a community network and all, though not the nice mapping option. I started a blog there, but, basically I don't care for blogging much so....hmmm.

 

Anyway.....whatever.

Plus I'm also in Glasgow for most of this year - so I don't count for two reasons :o
