Changing the subject, our local council has hired a firm to ring people up who are claiming a discount on their Council Tax as they are the single occupant in their property. This firm is using voice analyst software to see if they are lying and wrongly claiming the discount. Big Brother is coming to Cornwall.

Good afternoon everyone.

Shopping has certainly changed from my younger days. I can vaguely remember the co-op having butter in thin wooden barrels and weighing out things like currants and flour from sacks. In one department store the shop assistant put your money in a tube in it went overhead on wires to a central office where they put your change in and it came whizzing back.

Good morning all,

We have snow at last, It must have snowed for at least a minute during the night. I've been feeling left out and envious of your beautiful snow pictures.
Sympathies for those who've had accidents or had to make journeys.

I'm off out now to make a red cross in the garden so the helicopter can drop emergency rations.

Good morning all,

Hope you don't feel too bad with your 'nasty tablet', Jo. How long to do have to take them?

It's plus 8C here and our bit of Cornwall will have rain tomorrow according to the forcast. I've got a daffodil in flower but must be an early variety.

Best of luck with Ofsted, Dove.

 

 

What's the weather like in your area?

Just been out for an hour or so doing a bit more clearing up in the garden and not as cold as I expected.

Did you see any baby seals at Godrevy, Verdun? I once saw a seal there with a little yellow hat on and no-one believed me but when they release rescued seals back into the wild they sometimes do put a marker with a number on to track their progress.

Ungrateful little b*****s, aren't they Chris? I'll still carry on feeding them and hope somebody futher south is feeding mine.

That makes perfect sense about the water, Geoff.

It is sad that another big chain of shops has gone but it is so easy to shop on line. What will the high street look like in another 20 years or so.

I've got a lot of blackbirds too, Jean, mostly males. Chris Packham said on A-Z of gardening that they are migrants and our local birds go further south.

I heard that hot water can freeze quicker than cold. Is that true? Hot stones seems a good idea. Water hasn't frozen here yet.

Hi Jean,

I saw the bat flowers growing in the tropical biomes at the Edan Project in Cornwall. Amazing looking plants. They were growing in very hot humid conditions so I don't know how easy that would be to replicate.

Just watched the A-Z of gardening.  Chris Packham said the birds we have in our garden now are migrants from Scandinavia and the continent and our local bluetits,blackbirds and robins have migrated further south. Here's me feeding the birds hoping they'll pay me back in the spring and summer by eating all the bugs when all the time I've been feeding foreigners.
