Re: Blight detected.

So a salicylic drench is the advised prophylactic treatment? I have only done this stuff large scale, farming, in the past.

Re: Bio diesel

I made bio some years ago - it can be arduous and (a it) dangerous but if one is careful, fine. Of course research into vehicle suitability is a must as bio can have nasty effects on some engines, and kill seals on some engines that is is otherwise suitable for.

Finally got them to talk about wills and so on, albeit in a roundabout way. Thats a relief, not that I am expecting to inherit anything but bills. Theres a...
