Re: Is there no limit to human stupidity?

The simple answer is "no" Marigold. I bet these same people wouldn't buy a beggar a cup of tea or donate to a food bank. I gave up reading the article before I threw up! I love my four cats, even when there are live short- tailed voles running around my bedroom; I take note of their food preferences...

Re: Bonanza!

Wow, that's gorgeous Marigold! My mother-in-law started a mohair cardigan before she died and as it's stocking stitch I can manage the knitting, but the pattern!!!!!!!!!! It's a harvest mouse with poppies and ears of corn. The instructions are adamant that each colour must be knotted in every time i...

Re: Bonanza!

I'm hopeless and very slow. During knitting lessons at school I spent all my time untangling the knots in other girls wool! Anyone remember that horrible pink/blue school wool?? Have a German friend who one day is going to tech me to knit the continental way, which is the same sort of action as croc...

Re: Bonanza!

My dad was a better knitter than my mum! Not sure where/when he learnt to knit; possibly when he was recovering from mumps. He knitted a complete outfit for my sister who was 5 (I was 2) - leggings, jumper, thick cardigan, bonnet and mittens with squirrels on the back.

Re: Thoughts on dogs and chickens

I've never owned a dog but that is such brilliant advice Hen-Gen.

I once visited a farm where there was a "chicken dog" - a collie that had been trained to round up the young cockerels being bred for the table to stop them straying too far ...

Re: patience

There was the memorable night along the lane when someone opened a gate and let Kevin's cows out, whilst trying to get them in some semblance of order a car full of young lads pulled up and offered to help, they were very manly until one cow walked towards one of them and sniffed his face, whereupo...

Re: patience

Running a business from home and needing to get to the Post Office before 4pm, I flatly refused to go out at "school run" time, whether on foot or in a vehicle. You took your life in your hands walking down the road which had no pavement for the first 200 yards but trying to get out of our driveway ...
