I know what you feel about rude people in queues! My husband is ready to wage war. In fact I think I'll tell him about the cattle prod, he might like that one! In France the worse are old ladies! Sorry if I've ruffled some of you, but people who jump queues in general are of the older generation, and, being in France they do it with a smile, and a friendly "merci!", but you've lost your place in the queue anyway!

In libraries, do you not have a section for children, where they can quietly read? Could be a good idea for the little old ladies as well!

Yeah, my vent is regarding self absorbed inconsiderate people too! And this darn wind!

-The Library... I no longer go there to study, but you sure can overhear some interesting phone conversations. People will talk about anything... I heard a girl (maybe 18-20) loudly discussing her sex life! It was a very *ahem* diverse one! But I sure do wish the librarians at our campus library would enforce the rules.

-Disrespectful kids... It's no wonder everyone tells me my kid is so well behaved. All other children are demons! As I was driving home yesterday, two high school girls were walking down the middle of the road and there was not room for me to pass them on either side (I guess the sidewalk isn't "cool" to use anymore). Anyhow, they see me and acknowledge. One girl scampers to the curb, the other slows to a crawling pace and gives me the attitude stare. I had to just sit there as she literally took 2 inch steps as she made her way out of the street.... so bad me, as soon as there was enough room to squeeze past her I reved the engine hard, then pulled around her. You should have seen her jump!! The look on her face was priceless, and I'll bet she thinks twice before pulling that little stunt again!

-The wind... gag me! I like a breeze and all, but this is the kind of wind that makes you have to white knuckle the steering wheel on the freeway! Plus, it's stirring up all kinds of dust, pollen, and the like so my allergies are in overdrive.... And it's been going on for 3 days now... and is forecasted to continue.

Oh... and i feel much better now Making my way back to OB after a hectic week helps

My sound off is about SLUGS!!!!!!!! Those #@$%&! creatures that will devour spikes and new growths in one night while leaving just enough to make you think the spike will survive. It never does. Its like this stupid hungry slug was 'hmmmm.....that looks tasty.' Then they eat it decide that they're just not that hungry after all. I HATE THEM!!!!!!! Ive been waging a war and as soon as our rainy season is over this war will be escalating! Death to all slugs!!!!

Whew.....that feels great! The OB really is the best therapy there is! And its free!!

Wow! I didn't realise there were so many people out there with a reason to throw a tantrum! OB should be recognised as a worldwide aid to therapy! By the way, I know what you mean about slugs, but on Orchids??? Or did I misunderstand something... Be careful, and I hate to say this, but some slug species are becoming rare! Sorry!

slugs feed birds and small mammals such as hedgehogs and badgers, they have their place in the world just not in my garden!

Steve:- Yes Slugs are naughty people .I am afraid how they detect orchids flowers. They eat flowers too. They creep secretly and in the night times. They can smell buds I suppose!
During one night they can eat a whole stem.
Still there is snow? How com that. I thought that by April winter is over.
