Hear, hear, Tootles! And humans do much more damage to the environment than any animal!

MORNING FORKERS

Hi Brumbull, long time no see! What did you get up to in Spain? Thought I saw a mention of Egypt, what were you doing there, was it a side trip from Spain?

Have a good time shopping, hope you find your bench. Have fun with your new kitties, photo of them sometime? http://en.planetaemoticon.com/download-animals-cat-43-gif.htm

Cold here this morning, -5C and frost. Not even thinking about sowing seeds yet, though itching to get going like everyone else! Roll on Spring!

Regards to Albert too!

My OH pollarded ours between Xmas and NY because it was over 8 m tall with lots of ingrowing branches, it didn't bleed at all. May not have so much shade this summer, but a bloke along the road did his last year and it grew like the clappers again, is now almost as big again as when he started.

You know you are getting old when...

when you talk to schoolkids about the 70's and they say, 'Yeah we are doing the 70's in history'.

History, HISTORY! History is dinosaurs and Henry VIII, that's history! The 70's can't be history I still remember it. Ted Heath, 3-day week, winter of discontent. Best thing about a power cut when your 10 is the candles, the worst bit is missing Z Cars.

I was a punk rocker for goodness sake! Much embraced with vigour by my 14 year old self.

History indeed!

Talkback: Territorial garden birds

Here it's the sparrows that drive everyone away, there are dozens of them and they are eating us out of house and home! A couple of blackbirds and some blue tits came when we started putting out the bird food (fat balls and several feeders) but they have all given up and disappeared. Got nothing against sparrows as such, but so many!
