* What's happening on the forum...

Six years... Yes SIX years we've been running now. So Happy Birthday to us  ;D

Summer is nearly here, the days are getting longer and there's lots to do outside. If you're looking for gardening hints and tips, then we have a very avid gardening group here, come on in and share your gardening thoughts and ideas with us.



ONE MILLION POSTS! Wow!  :chuffed:


Do you enjoy reading novels?  Fancy an interesting discussion about a book you have read?  How about joining our recently formed, but now well established Book Club?

We have read several novels. We've have had some interesting discussions about our chosen novels and the characters and plots and settings.  We are light hearted in our approach and enjoy discovering other posters' reactions and thoughts.  There is no hard work involved, just a fun chat about a novel we have all read.

Come on in!


Do you enjoy photography? Then come right along in, we have dozens of threads covering a wide range of subjects. There's surely one that you could contribute to. We have birds, animals and wild life, sunrises and sunsets, a range of 'whimsy' picture threads with colours as their themes (these give you a chance of exercising those little grey cells) and a 'watery selection' of rivers, fountains etc,

So - come on in - and bring your camera with you! You might even win a prize in one of the photographic competitions that we have from time to time..."


As we're now classified as a BIG forum as our members have made nearly a million posts on all kinds of subjects and topics.


It's been said that people like to see what's in a forum before they join. Other forums that are open to the public (and search engines) offer this facility but we don't. What goes on in this forum stays in this forum, sorry, that's just the way it is.

  • Karl G. asks: Why do we call an elephant’s nose a trunk? It’s not clear who first tagged the elephant’s snout with the name “trunk,” but it seems to have happened sometime in the late 16th century. The first documented instance appears in the 1589 work by Richard Hakluyt, Principal Navigations: “The Elephant . . . With water fils his [...]The post Why an Elephant’s Nose is Called a “Trunk” appeared first on Today I Found Out.
