          Kostasi, jako venkovan to vidim takhle..

          Vyuzijte podzimniho listi, zalozte si kompost, budete mit vic mista v
          popelnici a nebudete tak casto jezdit do Hornbachu pro raselinu.
          Spis nez na zimu je to priprava na jaro, nebo mozna na zimu pokud maji
          doma nejake rostliny v kvetinacich, ale to je asi jedno..

                        I have never heard of an (American) city where people put leaves into garbage cans. Either they compost them in their yards, or they put them out by the curb for the city to collect with a big "elephant trunk", and they transport them somewhere for composting.

                          Yes, in my old borough of Lambeth you'd apparently get fined for putting
                          them in the ordinary dustbin. You put garden waste out in green bags and
                          the council empty them and take it away.

                          In some other places in the UK they have special bins for garden waste,
                          though, so "slim your bin" would refer to that.

                          I've been meaning to get one of those small composters for the balcony -
                          we have a balcony that faces nothing but an internal light well, so may
                          as well do something useful with it.

                          Re. meaning of the sentence - that's what I understand, too, but I
                          couldn't work out at first what the trips to the garden centre were for.

                                    Thanks to both of you. Just one more thing to make sure: "Pratt" is the judge's last name - right?

                                      "Prat" can also mean "prdel", hence the term "prat fall" for the falls actors take in slapstick comedies (grotesky).

                                      My parents had a story, probably originating in the 1920s or '30s, about my father's friend asking if some girl they knew was dating anyone. My father said, "She's going with a Harry Pratt," to which his friend replied, "I don't want you to describe the guy; just tell me his name!"

                                        Thanks for this Charlie. Michigan has something called Recorder's Court, and I've always wondered what "recorder" meant when it was instituted. It's presided over by a judge.

                                        Of course, we also have counties but no counts.

                                          We don't have counts either weirdly - they're a European thing... Earls and countesses in Britain.

                                          Thanks for this Charlie. Michigan has something called Recorder's Court, and I've always wondered what "recorder" meant when it was instituted. It's presided over by a judge.

                                          Of course, we also have counties but no counts.
