I think your camera steamed up, can you have another go?

Hostafan, they are based on the full face diving masks that you see presenters use, so that they can talk to the camera. I wish they would just dub it instead. waving arms around underwater, talking to a camera is silly.  I dont use my snorkel much, and I need a prescription bifocal mask, and the types of mask that can be fitted with prescription lenses is very limited. I think if you are just surface snorkelling, lying flat in the water, they are a good idea. You wouldn't get a good salt water nasal washout , though. that you get with a normal leaky mask.

I don't do any sewing, beyond  repairing hems when they come down, and sewing on buttons. I hold the record low marks for needlework at my school.  19 %

 I'm better at sowing (seeds)

Verdun, you need to try these..

although you might need to jump in quick, I have put a complaint in to ebay about fraud, although they don't seem to be bothered about it.

If they want fresh blood, why not try a youngster. What was the name of that young lad at Chelsea last year... he seemed a natural.

I go with either. Alys seemed to disappear along with Toby Buckland.

Ive just taken delivery of new bird feeders, and I've ordered some rain domes to try and keep the seed in them dry. 8 Blackbirds down on the lawn at the moment. I don't know how the little birds will cope with the domes, I'm trying one on and one off at the moment.

I'm with dove, it sounds like the manure was contaminated with a weedkiller used on hay fields. If you can get home made compost, or even a sack or two of composted  fine bark oreven peat, that should help your soil. The rotting off is usually due to bad drainage.
