Good morning all,

Not too bad in Cornwall. No rain for the last week so watering baskets and tubs to keep them going as long as possible. Autumn equinox tomorrow.

There are still a few swallows around. This years babies. They have shorter tail feathers. Their parents leave before them. how do the young ones know the way.

Frank you should write a book. You have such a way with words and an interesting life.

Hi everyone.

Jean and Flo. The flower is a schizostylis. It was also known as a kaffir lily but it's not PC to call it that now.

Has anyone grown a Glory Lily. I read about them and they look beautiful but can only find seeds on-line and they take three years to flower.

We have got to come up with some fund raising ideas. Do you think Closer magazine would be interested in Geoff''s topless holiday snaps?

Kate, I hope you are not too badly injured. I must say I thought you were a bit naive jumping off the roof. I was waiting to see if any insurance was in place before I attempted it. I'm sure that when I've seen people training for a jump they just jump from a foot or so then roll over.

There must be easier ways of raising money. What about a sponsered climb of Everest or joining Ranulph Fiennes trecking across Antartica?

Lovely chickens, Geoff.

I watched Paul O'Grady. I wonder what that poor dog had been through to be so scared. I hope he has a permanent home now.

I've spent an hour or so putting barley straw in nets as it is supposed to clear algae from ponds. It's quite a big pond about 25 by 15 metres. It was clear for the first few years but is quite cloudy now. the grandchildren put about 6 goldfish in and now there are hundreds. I think that's what made the water cloudy. Has anyone tried the barley straw method?

Flo, he's a very lucky cat to have found you. You've given him a good srart in life.

Godd morning all,

I can see both points of view about the badgers but can't see that culling them will be a solution. I know they talk about vaccination but as someone said on telly, Brian May perhaps, why not concentrate on a vaccine for the cattle.  I was brought up on a farm and we drank milk from the cows before it was processed. Our family all tested positive for TB but the X rays showed no sign so we had been in contact with it but built up a resistance.

Sorrry Kate, I will get into training again. It seems as though cake is an essential part of the diet.
