Good morning Ashdale

Morning Panda

BTW I just read back - Chicky, that is appalling!  Borrow a baby from someone!  They have to prioritise babies (and they're less trouble than borrowing an Old, believe me!)/

Do you have FB or Twitter?  I think just the promise of a mention of their after-sales service would have them beating a path to your door!

I think I've read somewhere that it's tom cats that poo in the open and don't bury it as it's marking their territory.

When I hear about other people's siblings maybe mine's not so bad after all

Good morning all - I overslept!  Has Panda got my bodyclock again???

Awful weather up on the West coast of Scotland - Stornaway coastguard talking about the sea state being 'phenomenal' - apparently that's a tech term for the worst it can possibly be!  And a lifeboat's gone out to rescue a Spanish fishing boat whose wheelhouse has been smashed by a wave - brave people those lifeboard men and women!

Keep those hatches battened up there in the northwest!

You can put potatoes in your compost bin - but I don't because they're likely to attract rats - rats love potatoes above almost all things - my brother (potato farmer) says rats will do anything (even eat through a concrete wall) to get to potatoes, and he swears they can smell a potato a mile off.

I don't put potatoes in my compost bin.  I do put potato peelings in the compost bin, but make sure they're well spread about.

And Fishy has his own cares and worries - but never forgets to give support to others - think he's a bit of a hero too
