Take him out to the garden centre Lilly and then suggest he treat you to a meal out at a nice pub. He'll soon learn to stop moaning!

Redex is still around Alan - it claims to keep your engine and carbs (or injectors) clear of nasty deposits and pollutants. I used to give my 1964 Vauxhall of a shot of it every so often but it was cheaper just to rebuild the carb if it wasn't running right. They say it works for modern cars but I imagine only if your car spends most of its time idling and doesn't have the much needed blast down the motorway that most cars need to clear the deposits themselves.

I know fish in ponds tend to eat any frog spawn but if I ever get some I've read some very clever ways of netting it off to protect it!

I'm hoping to see the frog I uncovered in the garden sometime soon! We've had it quite mild so fingers crossed my nearly putting a fork through him and having to build him a nest on the other side of the garden has done him no harm. The pond isn't very wildlife friendly at the moment (sorting that out in March when the plants come) but there wasn't a pond before so hopefully he'll find it!

Wouldn't be so bad if they made at effort, or made the adverts funny not just dull or nonsense!

Thank you Mike. Its a shame we're not all in the position to rehome hedgehogs from rescues to provide them with homes and us with slug monitors!
