HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Posted: 09/11/2016 at 16:24

Hello again folks   Tennis was fine - just half a session - serving underarm and no probs.  Physio was pleased - did another lot of 'cupping' on an area where it's still a bit painful at night, and that's my lot of NHS treatment, but I can go back privately if anything needs tweaking.  

The weather has been really grim today - a chill and blustery wind and rain - but at least we've not had any snow.  Hope Wonky was wrapped up warm. 

Supper simmering on the hob - we'll have it with rosemary roasted crushed potatoes and lamb's lettuce.

Cat mess and veg patch!

Toxoplasmosis can remain active in the soil for up to 18 months.  

I've worked with children who have been terribly disabled in the womb because their mother contracted the infection whilst pregnant.  

I'm well past the age when I might become pregnant, but I use wire netting to keep cats from fouling my vegetable patch.  Any 'deposits' found anywhere in the garden are cleared up scrupulously and binned.

Part of the reason Trump got in was because of a backlash against the reality of a black president - the same demographic will never vote for a woman, especially not a black one.

Although only a portion of the Trump supporters are racist, they will now feel that having a majority vote with them and that their abhorrent views have been validated - there may be trouble ahead.

Hello again - well ... and now for some good news ... two sets of 'Short Tennis' with no real problems other than trying to serve underarm .  Now for a quick shower and then to get checked over by the physio ...  life goes on ...

Wasps in dalek compost

Watch as the sun goes down for wasps returning to the nest at the end of the day - that's the time to spot them if there are any there.  If you're anxious about it you could wait until December - that should be safe enough.

Are there any wasps going in and out of the compost bin?  If not, it's over.  There may be a few dead ones around but most will have died elsewhere.

Wasps' nests die off in the winter - new queens will have left to hibernate elsewhere and then start new nests in the spring.  The rest of the wasps live for the summer only.  

Empty your bin carefully when the weather has turned really cold - a wasps' nest is a marvellous thing of wonder - a feat of engineering.
