ok thanks dovefromabove

tractors a nick name that's stuck I'm afraid, I've got a really broad west country accent and I when went to uni in London most people hadn't met someone who spoke like me which was a source of a few names but tractor seemed to be the one that stuck

LOL - when I first left home and went to work in the city, colleagues were confused that I, as a farmer's daughter, didn't walk around with a straw in my mouth

Not sure about Salix caprea - leaves don't look right to me - but I haven't got a better suggestion and Nut's usually right in these matters

Well done KEF's niece and the best of luck in whatever she decides to to - my understanding is that nowadays ballet schools make sure that academic studies are not neglected - they know that dancers need a life after ballet

I've just booked tickets for us to see Much Ado at The Minack when we're in Cornwall - must take cushions, thermal undies, waterproofs, pasties, flask of coffee and beer for OH.

Bats in the belfry

I remember hearing recently (radio or tv) that contrary to popular belief, bats have some vision - however their echolocation is far superior.
