Composting cat litter

Posted: 16/09/2017 at 18:01

I wouldn't want to compost the faeces of any carnivore and then use it on my garden.  I don't think it's advisable.

Unusual Bug?

Think that one's dressed up for Strickly Fairy ... that looks like the bug equivalent of spray tan and glitter

That rhino was magnificent ... I loved him ... the others spent most of their time in the wallows but he wanted to engage with his audience 

And the elephants behaved in such a natural way ... the mothers, aunts and big sisters looking after the younger ones ... if you look you can see they'd been learning how to throw the dusty soil over their heads onto their backs   Papa is a big bull called Emmett ... he was in his own paddock over the other side ... he doesn't have free access to the females when the keepers are around as it wouldn't be safe ... but he seemed perfectly content too.  

We spent all day there but didn't see half of what there is to see ... we'll have to go back

Just showing linguistic superiority over the rest of us. 

 Attempting to Nut, but not succeeding ... not on this forum

Monty Don went to great efforts to explain this on a programme last year ... however I don't expect it to have any influence on the way it's pronounced by people and I don't expect that he does either.

I am constantly irritated by the mispronunciation of lots of things, and the Victorian Hellenization of the pronunciation of many East Anglian Anglo Saxon place names is a constant bugbear.  However I know that I am a linguistic pedant and I have accepted that most people are not.

A few of the photos we took at Whipsnade Zoo on the way home from our holiday. 

Sorry some are a bit fuzzy ... didn't realise I'd left the camera on the wrong setting
