What's Trump got to do with it, he is not responsible for the extra billion people on this planet.

He already has a fridge, it's the billions of extra people who will buy them.

It seems to me that people use the name Trump just to justify their opinion and get the Trump haters on their side. Stick to the facts or you lose credibility.

What about VW, Trump didn't ask them to falsify the diesel emission, but he at least will punish them financially, unlike our government.

Red kite, kingfisher, little egret and a grey wagtail, typed them in but just deleted.

does make you wonder about the value of the survey.

Red kites have only been seen in this area of north Essex in the past 6 months, would have thought they would want to know.

Ash is in my opinion the best wood for burning, wet or dry, doesn't spit.

13 trees, you must have had help, it would take me a day to do one.

also a good opportunity to plant the glade that you have created.
