Hello Forkers December

Bye Dove - see you next year xxx  

Lesley - I like the sound of Iran brut....

I work with someone who was addicted to it. It's a running joke that she'll be buried in a blue and orange coffin. When she had stopped drinking it she was talking one day and I said to her - do you know that you talk exactly like an alcoholic? Every phrase she used was the same as any junkie coming off a fix. She still says 'that's x amount of months I've been off it'  It's dreadful stuff! 

I shall be partaking of tea flavoured drinks and going to bed at the normal time, as is my usual habit. Walking tomorrow - so it will be the first walk of the new year Lesley 

Do you think the Pandas will be full of eucalyptus and having a bit of jigging by now? Or is it a bit early yet. Hope they've had a good day  

ID please

Looks the most likely Berghill  

I don't think that pine cone's going to grow though Mark...or those berries...

Good to see you B'man. I'll echo Dove's sentiment and wish you a better, happier 2017, and the good health to enjoy it.

Don't have too much of that malt - or shortbread - you've a walk to do... 

Hopefully our lums will be reeking for a few more years

Irn Bru's the Devil's work doc....

I'm tee total and I'd rather drink the vodka than that stuff!  

Your worst Christmas present!

I have a relation that sends one of those B3. I really wish they wouldn't! It's another 'over the pond' fixation that seems to have found it's way over here, although I forgive my relatives as they're Canadian  

Sadly it hasn't stopped people airing their entire laundry baskets on that dreadful Faceache. What has society come to when a man was murdered up here at Christmas and the first thought the daughter had was to go on there and tell the world about how she felt....

You couldn't pay me enough to be on it. A vile invention in my opinion.

Good in a way BL - it means long may your chimney smoke, so 'may you have longevity' . Unfortunately, all those smoking chimneys - not so good for the environment.... 

Not so good for your cough either!

Who's going to the gym in the new year.

Posted: 31/12/2016 at 12:11

Thank you doc. I fully intend to keep doing them for as long as I can. 

It's one of the finest days I've ever had, although I decided not to carry on to Binnein Beag which it's often teamed with.  I have to be careful with the dodgy knees so I'll need quite a few outings to complete all The Mamores. They're - quite rightly - among the finest hillwalks anywhere. 

Sealant for my acer?

Posted: 31/12/2016 at 12:04

Acers are pretty robust. I've never known anyone use a sealant on cut branches.

There are several where I work which are pruned every year, mainly to stop them outgrowing their spot. They've been there for over twenty  years and are very healthy. One was cut back quite a lot a few years ago with no ill effects.
