What's the best book you've EVER read ?

Thomas Hardy's work is just brilliant; you get such a sense of how the landscape influences the characters. But I'm jolly glad that I didn't live in those times, society was so restricting for women.

Wow, what a sunset!

A friend bought a telescopic lopper/fruit gatherer which seems to do the trick. (a lopper is a device for cutting small branches)

I had just started work as a graphic designer for ITN, I think I started in the September and I was only 18. When the news came in about the Aberfan disaster even the most cynical, hard-bitten journalists were shocked. It was a truly appalling event, and as I understand, preventable.

If you have a load of leaves and lots of grass cuttings, mix them together for high speed leaf mold in a separate container (black bin liners with holes in them), add some water and wait a year or two.
