YOUR view of music over the years.

Posted: 23/10/2014 at 12:21

My music buying stopped in the 80's. I use to be a punk rocker in the 70's, minus the safety pins. Then college and the 80's music. There was a few tunes in the 90's I liked.

Nowadays I like Classical Music, it's great when I'm reading. I cant listen to someone singing if I'm reading. When in the garden it has to be either the Blues or Dire Straits, which I'm often in if I lose my tools

We get free fruit at work and I have noticed the bananas have a funny smell. I have never noticed it before. I know some people can smell, I thought they were joking

Remember to wash your bird feeders

Hi

Just a reminder to wash your bird feeders before putting them out. They can harbour bacteria, that can be lethal. According to the BTO the finch population has declined by 95% since 1995. One contribution to this is a disease called, 'trichomonosis' which is a microscopic parasite. It's more active in the autumn, and is a slow death for the bird, they struggle to swallow food and drink.

If you wish to know more, please contact the British Trust for Ornithology.

What's the best book you've EVER read ?

My favorite author is Scott Marini and his Ben Hope series, nine in total. Its like Jason Bourne meets Indiana Jones

tools missing in action (MIA)

Posted: 19/10/2014 at 16:40

The great tidy up has begun, and already I have lost two pair of scissors and a trowel. No idea where they are. They are down as MIA!

What items do you keep mislaying, and do you every find them?

now I have seen everything!

I was in my local GC today, and on demo was a remote lawnmower. I kid you not. They had it on some artificial grass and it was going up and down. It looked like a great big green ladybird. I think it was made by Viking?
