Good morning all - well done in zapping that spammer Fg - what on earth was that about

Log pile

What sort of risk are they thinking of - children climbing on logs which roll?  Well, they shouldn't be doing that because they should be leaving it quiet for the bugs and beasts.

Can't really think of anything else - I grew up playing in fields, ditches woods and barns and I still have four limbs and my head and various other bits and pieces.

You might find some help from the people here wildaboutbritain co uk

 Oh, can't make the second one do a direct link but if you highlight it you can ask Google to search for it

Well, there was an old chap who lived in our village who always peed on his rhubarb (according to his neighbours) - think it was nearer than going to the privy down the garden, but I don't think it's compulsory
