From what I've read and heard, it appears that there were some morons who thought it was funny to try to wind the gorilla up!

Good morning all 

Hosta, that seems a perfectly normal time to wake for me. I've done that all my adult life - feeding the animals and milking the goats befor getting breakfast of the rest of the family!  Maybe you're designed to be a smallholder 

Clari. There really are people who buy the old light switches and door handles etc. to restore houses to be authentically accurate to their period. I frequently used to see people buying them at antiques auctions - have a look on EBay.

There are a few in Norwich - I'd not noticed one before I came here and saw them turning that wonderful deep bronze at this time of year

I once planted one as a burglar deterrent by the back alley of a Victorian terrace in a dodgy area of town - it grew like billy-o and certainly kept intruders out - I wonder if it's still there - and if the bin men can still get down the back alley 

What tree is this?

That's the one Hosta, I was wracking my poor little brain!  There's quite a few of them planted around here
