I'm fascinated by conspiracy theories. The moon landings could be proved if, with today's powerful telescopes, photos could show evidence of this.

Last night I watched  a programme about tthe missing 911 tapes.  Any planes still in the air and not responding were ordered to be shot down.  Did this happen to the passenger airliner? We'll never know.

I agree with Dove that cancer was  just as common before the war. People didn't talk about it then.

Although we are living longer now so many people seem to suffer from allergies  and asthma. I don't remember one child when I was at school having problems.We were told that deisel was better for us and the environment than leaded petrol but now we are told this might not be the case.

I'm in Cornwall and have a wasp's nest in the garden. I'm waiting for them to die off and dig the nest up to show the grandchildren. I understand they don't use the same nest next year and only the queens survive the winter. Strangely they don't seem to be too interested in the windfall apples but are feeding on fatsia flowers.

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

I'll have to look out for 'Cold' by Ranulf Fiennes as one of my favourites is 'The Feather Men' by Randulf Fiennes. Men who have been in the SAS look after each other and they are known as The Feather Men.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is well.

I'm also enjoying fidget's diving adventures. I read once that all seasnakes are poisonous but their mouths are so small the only place thet can bite you is between the finger and thumb. I wouldn't like to put it to the test though

Hi Mike,

Hope you are feeling a bit better. I recently bought a halogen oven  and am still experimenting.  Scones and chops turned out well but still to do a roast in it.

Thanks for that, Joe. I'd like to see what they are up towhen they are not with us.

I once saw swallows following my dog through long grass and afterI I'd seen a documentary on swallows in Africa that were following elephants that were disturbing insects reaslised they were following my dog just the same.

Swallows are my favourite bird andI I get so excited when I see the first one in spring.

I thought they'd all flown away this year but there were six swooping over the pond this morning.  They were this years babies as they had shorter tail feathers. I understand that the adults fly away first and the young follow afer. It's amazing that they can find their way.  I've often wonder if the kids go to the same area as mum and dad, it would be even more amaing if they did.

Ah well,roll on next april.

Wrapping up my gunnera!

Hi Sertolicell,

I just fold the leaves of the plant over mine in the winter but I'm in Cornwall so a bit warmer than you.

Thanks Verdun,

I've cut the older shrub right down and am now taking he roots out. I think I've been patient wth it long enough. I will follow your advice about the younger shrub and give it ome potash in the spring.
