Good morning all,

Hope I don't get told off for putting this on the wrong thread but it cheered me up seeing this this morning.

I read about the mysterious bangs too. Concord used to fly over here about 9.20 every evening and seconds before I heard it the pheasants used to call out.

Hope everyone has a good day.

That sounds great, Dove.

Good afternoon

Hope you didn't pay extra for the worms and slugs, Matty!

I've been cutting the brambles down this morning at the bottom of the field. They've grown so much this year.  I don't feel so guilty about sitting down in the afternoon if I have an hour or two in the garden.

If Lyn and Dove have a meet next year can I come too? I live near Perranporth.  I let my cottage out in the summer and live in a caravan for a few weeks.



It's a big worry......

Of course Santa exists. The American defence radar NORAD tracks his progress from the North Pole every year and even send up fighter jets to escort him into America. They don't want to shoot him down as an incoming hostile.

It's a lovely site for children (and adults) and the countdown starts in 19 days time.

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

Slow cookers

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.
