I forgot to ask Ben - where abouts in the great big country across the pond are you from? Anywhere near 'auntie' Annette (everyone's favourite -bean growing - agony aunt)?

She's on Vancouver Island.

 Gee did I ever mention I was named for my grandmother's sister, I guess she'd be my grand aunt Annette. I think she lived in Nottingham, When I was very young I was so excited that my aunt lived near Sherwood forest and Robin Hood, my hero at the time  lol(1). I sure wish I knew more of my family's history but not much was told to me.

So the term 'auntie Annette' has pedigree! I think I'll adopt that for you in the future. It wasn't the Sheriff of Nottingham that made the family flee to Canada was it!  ROL :-))

Thank you.
and a belated welcome from Zunny Deb'n from me too. Always good to have new members. I can only echo my esteemed friends' words, but will add ...get yourself onto Big Gee's APS list for next year...the most delicious runner bean on the planet.
