Bulb log 52 - 24 December
« on: December 24, 2008, 07:22:14 PM »
Just as I was sitting here thinking there is no chance of my bulblog fix this Wednesday I discover it has been uploaded.  Many thanks Ian, I know it is a labour of love but we really do appreciate all the hard work you put into it, and of course not forgetting Maggi and Fred's part.  Thankyou for another year and best wishes one and all. ;)

Thanks, Friends, the BD is  now sleeping peacefully.
Fred's lovely wife, Monika, is Austrian so the family follow that tradition of haivng a lovely meal on Christmas Eve and opening their presents then.... so Fab Fred came home from work and loaded the log  all before beginning his family celebrations .... Thanks, Fred.... lots of love and thanks to you.... and Monika for putting up with us ....hope you all have a super time tonight and tomorrow (when they eat another huge meal with Fred's  sister and family!!)


When Fred gets a chance ( he is still beavering on the seed exchange online "stuff") he will get Len Rhind's latest Bulb Log Index loaded, too.
Yup, the log had barely hit cyberspace when Len had the updated index here.... what a guy!
Our grateful thanks to Len and very fond seasonal  greetings to him and to his wife, Dawn.  :-* :-*

Wishing you all a Cool Yule!!  8)

I want to thank Ian for again a year of very interesting Bulb Logs.
I know how much work this means to show every week something new.
(My Weekly Lisse is really peanuts against that)

Maggi when opening this Topic in the morning and looking at your hyperlink,
you have made me laughing so much! Cannot remember the last time.
It's really GREAT.

Thanks for last year and the start of this year since it is now 2009.

or where celts

Nice to see that the natives are not prefect either and that we non natives are not the only ones making mistakes, but then none of us are perfect, but some come close by (not me) :)

The best to You all
