Hello Flowerchild.

Talking about cold, I heard on the radio that Ranulph Fiennes is planning to walk across Antartica  in the winter when it can be minus 70. He's a pensioner has had cancer and a heart attack. I did enjoy his book 'The Feather Men'. It's about how the SAS look after their own. One of the best books I've read. I think it has a grain of truth in it.

Thanks, Frank. I'll do as you say.

That's beautiful, Pam. Well worth the wait.

Frank, is it okay to put fresh horse poo straight on the garden where nothing will be planted 'til spring? No straw or anything in just straight from the field.

Looking forward to Downton tonight. Been busy in the garden grass cutting and weeding the gravel drive so hope I stay awake. I think you get it later than us,Inka, so we won't tell you what happens.

Hope your chickens have called a truce,Geoff. I've still got two separate gangs and the newer ones are the offspring of the older ones that I hatched in an incubator.

Inka, your buns sound scrummy. Hope your taster approves. The deer should leave your bulbs alone. Daffodils are one of the few things that the rabbits I'm plagued with don't eat.

Are you going to the art classes again this year?

Going back to sheep dog trials, watch the video on You Tube about the rabbit herding sheep. So fuuny to see the sheep being chased by a tiny rabbit. Perhaps someone could post it on here as i haven't figured out how to do it yet.

Good morning forks,

 I've just come in for a coffee and could do with one one those, Kate.

I've been planting daffodils along the lane that leads to our cottages. My grandaughter helped me. I told her when she went to school next year along the lane she'll remember that she planted them. 

Your chickens are amazing, Geoff. how did you train them to play football? Are the newcomers laying yet?

Was it a gardening accident, Dan?

I'm sure we had more fun in those days, but we always lived in the countryside away from roads. I suppose it had it's own dangers but we got away with it. We used to play in the farmyard up in the barns on top of the hay bales and sneeking into the calf pens and riding on the calves. I once had a bottom full of splinters after sliding down an old farm trailer but that was the worst i ever suffered. It's a different world now.

Good morning everyone,

Love wagon wheels and chocolate tea cakes.

Sorry to hear about Horace, Jean. Vets bills are really scarey. I mentiontioned last week that my dog has an auto-imune condition and the drug to control it, not cure costs £500 a month. Beyond my reach.  The vet put him on steroids and anti-biotics and he is so much better. He said he could give me an internet prescription for the expensive drug but how can you trust that? Fake drugs for human use have already been found in pharmacies.

Two sleeps before Downton.
