Better to reschedule it for a sporting event than to not air it at all.

The birds are eating all my bird food!

Ive just added a new and much larger feeder to my garden. Its a 7 port Apollo feeder from CJ Wildlife and comes apart easily for cleaning, no tools needed. Its also got ventilation holes which they claim reduce internal condensation? It has a metal top, bottom and feeding ports so should be safe from squirrels.

pruning honeysuckle

Try pruning back half of it this year, and see if it produces new growth next year, then prune the other half back next year after flowering.

Beautiful animals.


We rescued a German Shepherd last year. The forum collective know all about him.


Best thing we did!!


See original post

Beautiful looking dog, and perhaps my favourite breed, though I've never owned one.

My mother had lab that failed its guide dog training at a young age. Apparently they are trained to do their 'business' only on command, so they don't mess when the blind person is walking them?


Well her dog was the most perfectly trained dog I've ever known, and even she failed.

Can you post a picture of the square bolts please?


Maybe buy a set of ratchet spanners to make life much easier?



You can also buy hex nut socket screwdrivers that could work, depending on the nut shape..

You can even get power drill attachments of the same.

I posted my labrador rescue post in the wrong thread, it should have been in this one...

Is it possible on this new look forum to hide a link within a word, instead of showing the whole link?

Thanks everyone.


I can't edit my original post but we still have Bailey with us as she's not ready to be rehomed yet until she's finished a course of vet injections. She's a lovely dog, her only fault is wanting to be with you constantly, go upstairs and she follows you, if she can't she gets a bit anxious. Probably due to previously being left alone all day in a tiny porch/hallway?


We also need to work on her recall when out off the lead, She does return to us but gets distracted by smells etc. I think she's just so excited to be finally walking free she doesn't know what to do. She's only 2 yrs old so not too late for further training. She will make a lovely pet for the right person.
