Corn Cockle can kill?

Same here Lyn ... all the dogs in my life lived to ripe old ages or were  euthanised because of accident/injury .  I seem to have grown most of those plants in my life and my dogs lived in close proximity to them ..... it's a miracle any of them survived.

Then make sure he knows that TOIL means just that ... Time Off Work !!!

Not time spent sitting on the phone/pc dealing with stuff for work   That way leads to being off work with illness 

Tell him you'll send Dove round

My holiday is going well; my boss has emailed, called, and text'd me several times... they can't cope without me it seems.

His lordship is out tonight so I'm taking time now to rest. I'm starting to get a few good days over the bad but fatigue is a real issue.

See original post

 Note any time spent on work and tell them you'll be adding it to your leave or claiming it as TOIL at a later date.  You're supposed to be GETTING SOME REST!!! 

Harvest Mites

Posted: 12/09/2017 at 18:00

When they retired my parents lived for some years on the Suffolk coast and walked their dogs on the surrounding heaths  ... I recall one of their dogs suffering badly from what the vet diagnosed as mites one year ... if I remember correctly the problem was said to be an allergic reaction to the bites ... I think my parents said they'd been told that some dogs suffer badly, others don't seem to be affected.

 Certainly my parents never said they'd been bitten themselves.

Hope you can sort something out.

Not sure what it is ........ 

Have you moved its position lately?  Is it used to more light than it's getting at the moment?

Harvest Mites

It sounds awful ... does anyone know if this is a relatively new problem ... I lived in Suffolk most of my life ... on farms and smallholdings in rural areas and never had a problem with mites ... mozzies yes, but never came across mites either on me or my animals.

Just had a phone call from Wonky ... she's had the steroid injection in her right wrist and is off work for the rest of the week ... and not allowed to do so much as to scratch her nose with that hand.  I'm going over there on Friday to do some bits and bobs and take her shopping.   She says Hi to everyone

It might be ... see what others think ......... on the other hand, there's not a better large shrub/small tree for wildlife in my opinion
