Thanks for that Kenrick. I have tried them but they are not effective. The plastic can bend when trying to bang into hard ground. Also, the thickness of the main stem adds to the difficulty. Also, the diameter of the tops are too small which leads to the fabric ripping and coming loose as the area is walked on.

Maybe a metal inverted 'U' shape with inverted web anchors. Works similar to a plasterboard rawplug in the anchoring.

Have you tried housebricks? They have already been invented.

Well bury the bloody things and stick in little Union Jacks as markers.
They are in abundance in Poundland and similar establishments.
The will also lend a little colour to your garden.

If you need further assistance with this ongoing challenge, feel free to contact me, I have other suggestions I can offer.

Ok Ken, i think that one has been killed.

How about this as an alternative at all those fast food bars selling burgers, chips, hotdogs, noodles, sarnies etc. at the Olympics...

Using a template to batter 5 onion rings into, so they come out looking like the Olympic emblem? You could have different flavoured ones and call them OLYMPIC RING PIECES OR OLYMPIC RONG PIECES!!

True! Only bought a one way ticket, thinking I'd make enough money to pay for the return journey.

That was a long way to thumb it , boy!!!

A device that automatically turns down the volume of overloud i-pods, ds and other games, on trains and other forms of public transport.

After spending 3 1/2 hours on a train from Sheffield to Norwich, with at least four i-pods, two ds's and innumerable mobile phones, either texting with very loud keypad tones or giving a real-time account of what the train was passing at that moment.............. and that in the "quiet zone"..........I was ready to kill!!!

I am interested in recommendations for a zero turn mower. I have about two acres to mow, some of it is pretty steep. I currently have a JD series 200 mower and it barely stays upright on the slopes. I have heard that zero turns can be even more prone to slipping or rolling over than the standard yard tractors. I have looked at some zero turn Cub Cadets with a steering wheel. The salesman said that this would be a good choice. Does anyone have any experience with these zero turn mowers or any advice
