    I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that you didn't catch that pun
    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Now, knowing as I do how concerned you all are regarding
    the welfare of my lupins, here is a quick update. I have just
    spent half an hour spraying them with a very expensive and highly
    toxic insecticide to rid them of nasty French bugs. I now have a
    very strange taste in my mouth! If I don't make it to the end of the week,
    I want you all to know it has been the most TREEmendous fun!

    Take care Val, that insecticide sounds like pretty lethal stuff. Is it "Mort aux Pucerons" by Yves Saint Laurent? Think I got some for Christmas once....
