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?

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.

Geoff, when you say 'you lot' does that mean you are not taking part?

Wouldn't the plane that was towing the banana boat leave a carbon footprint or would it be some sort of glider launched  from a big hill?

The biggest hill in Cornwall is Brown Willy.

Welcome home Becks and Jess.

I didn't realise that Forkers United was still a possibility. Are we still hoping to get a team together for Rio?

Hi Jean, for the last two years I've bought the winter violas and they seem healthy at first then get brown spots on their leaves then eventually die. I thought it was some sort of fungal disease.

Where's Becks? Has she done a Shirley Valentine or lost her laptap? She promised to keep- us posted while she was on holiday.
