slow threading

threaded2 by neki desu

taking it very slow not because it is  the way to go, but because i'm   fearful of going back to cervical problems. threading some, stopping to rest my neck and doing other stuff, like printing on fabric, stitching
and even some gardening.

sick clem by neki desui found that all the new growth in my clematis is coming out curly and some parts of the stems are open exposing the inner parts and flat. 
i've sprayed  with a lot of neem oil last week and the newest shoots still come out curly. so now i'm using copper sulfate if there's a chance that it is a mold.

can someone please come to rescue?

on the rant department 

 the prblems w. ff4 continue. i visited one of the help forum and there was a long list of people experiencing misery, so it helps to know i have company :(
however there was a generous geek who provided a solution to unninstall and go back to your last ff. and without more preamble:
To downgrade to Firefox 3.6 first uninstall Firefox 4, but do not select the option to "Remove my Firefox personal data". If you select that option it will delete your bookmarks, passwords and other user data.You can then install the latest version of Firefox 3.6 available from - it will automatically use your current bookmarks, passwords etc.
To avoid possible problems with downgrading, I recommend going to your profile folder and deleting the following files if they exist - extensions.cache, extensions.rdf, extensions.ini, extensions.sqlite and localstore.rdf. Deleting these files will force Firefox to rebuild the list of installed extensions, checking their compatibility, and reset toolbar customizations.

For details of how to find your profile folder see
and the newest rant:
something changed without notice at flickr. now even if you have a paid account you do not get the html code. you are forced to use their blog this application which wipes out your sig line, forces you to change font and sizes back to your settings the post goes out with the title of your photo  and some  more disfunctions. paying does not assure anything nowadays, that's what happens when companies get too big. i do not understand the why of this because if you click on the photo you are taken directly to flickr , so what is the issue?
luckily there are other hosting companies. flickr take note.
oops too quick. i swear that while i was deep-in-rant-mode they added the html code button.

however, no matter what i do i don't seem to be able to go back  and post in my old font and size settings. GRRRRRRRRRR.

went line by line until i found the %**)/&$ offending code. there went the morning.

  1. about the mold on the plant. we have flowering shrubs here called crepe myrtle that suffer in a similar fashion from powdery mildew. I sprayed them with a solution of Murphy's Oil soap (a vegetable based soap) when the plant is budding and leafing out. It keeps the mold from establishing and hurting the young shoots. You have to re-apply after each rain but it works and we had blossoms on all four last year for the first time in ages.

    We planted a young kaki (persimmon) tree last year and the first thing we got was curly leaves (aphids). I just went in there with my hands and cloth or paper towel to remove them. We had to do it almost daily and finally they seemed to disappear, but we're keeping an eye out this year. In your case though, might not be the bugs, ne?

    Oh! I meant to say - I also noticed those flickr changes...I was just getting used to their last changes, now this. I'm not sure it's so much better.

  4. Your threading looks amazing to me, I can get in a muddle with 80 ends on my RHL! Better to do it slowly and not be in pain by the end. My DH has been having lots of trouble with Firefox too - I gave up a while ago and switched to Chrome... I hope the copper sulphate works.

  5. nice threads. having a good day?


interaction appreciated!
