Sometimes feel sorry that William has to behave himself. Can't remember any bad publicity about him. It was the same with the Queen and Princess Margaret. The Queen never put a foot wrong whereas her sister was very much a party animal.

If you'd like a laugh look at 'pimmsgate on you tube. Not clever enough to post it on here.

Talkback: Glow-worms

Posted: 21/08/2012 at 08:30

I live in Cornwall and have an area of old mine workings close by. I still have one glow worm glowing every night. I only saw 6 at one time this year. I think once they find a boyfriend they stop glowing so I've still got one lonely glow worm.

 After I've washed the kitchen floor I  put a small amount of bleach in the water and pour it on the gravel drive making sure it doesn't go on nearby plants. Still have to rake it every 2 weeks or so, especially this year.

Jess is lovely. Good carrots.

Glad you are enjoying your heatwave. You'll be topping up your tan before your holiday,Geoff.

Kate, didn't someone run in the lympics with a broken leg? He didn't realise at the time but had some previous injury that didn't reveal it.

My son and family are on holiday next week and I'm pet sitting again. One of the pets is a hamster that's well over 2 years old. Just my luck for something to happen to it when I'm in charge.

What's the weather like in your area?

Rain in Cornwall, again!!

Frank I stayed with a schoolfriend in your area many moons ago and we climbed Roseberry Topping, lovely area. Her dad used to enter flower shows and we went to a show near there. One event was hound trailing and we could see the hounds following a scent over the hills and then being called in by their owners back to the showground. Wonderfull sight.

Sorry about your OH, Kate. My daughter's car was written off about 10 years ago by an uninsured driver who had driven his mam's car without permission. He took off across the fields with a broken leg. She claimed through the Motor Insurance Bureau  which compensates people who are involved with uninsured drivers, so if your Oh doesn't get any joy with the other driver that may help.

Raining again in Cornwall. Glad you further east are enjoying some good weather. I think I might try growing rice next year.

Thanks for your welcome back,Geoff and your comments about my fox photo,Jean.

Sorry Geoff couldn't fulfill your orders from the carboot. I feel he is putting himself under too much pressure. He is already helping us out with gardening problems, IT and fashion advice. He deserves his holiday. I forgot menu planning.

Hi Gary, my chickens don't think it's lucky! but I must admit I do like to see them.

Thanks, Kate. I enjoyed not haven't much to do, just reading and watching the wildlife.

Watched GW last night. I thought Monty looked a strange colour. Someone once described it as 'hangover p""s shade. Liked his pond though.

Later watched 'Boy in the striped pajamas'. Very moving.

Good morning all. Good to be back with you. What have I missed?

I've been staying in a caravan while I let my cottage out. This is a photo of a tiny fox that was hoping for a chicken dinner. I felt sorry for him, he looked so confused but I suppose in a few weeks he'll be big enough to be a real threat to the chickens.

Be with you all next week. Hope the traffic is okay. There might be the odd chicken in the way.

Glad you won Becks.

Play nicely while I'm away boys and girls.
