Re: Coronavirus

I can't see it helping much of Wales, unless the government stop wasting money on HS2 & spend it on phone masts in Wales instead... I spent 2 weeks boating in Wales & didn't have a mobile signal for any of it... And if anyone is upset by my being anti HS2, it's because I've experienced at first hand...

Re: nature notes

That's one of the few things I miss about my last "proper" job Hen-Gen. My office window faced west & beyond the car park & thick conifers, before the motorway, were fields & a river. I'd see lots of lapwings, & before the sun set, hundreds of starlings would murmerate. It was a sight that never fai...

Re: Happy hens arrived last week, but one has runny stool. Any tips? X

The other favourite place for them to leave a caecal poo is on the doormat, right outside your door. At least you won't have that problem for 2 or 3 weeks... Best not to let them out of their run to free range until they associate the rattling of a food tub with treats & they follow you as though yo...

Re: Island living

Now I'm picturing your roof filled with your personal possessions ;-) Hopefully that doesn't include your sheep, unless you have a turf roof of course!!

Re: Lymph Node?

Some doctors are desperate to put everyone on statins, BYM. You'd almost wonder if the doctor who prescribed the most wins a prize from the manufacturer...

Perhaps your mum's doctor is chasing the prize...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

The property developer next door is fine. She wasn't the one who recommended my previous bloke - the one who botched installing a boiler & left us with a gas leak over Christmas... and ran a copper gas pipe around the outside of the wall, 4" above the ground because he was too lazy to bury it under ...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Agreed, Diane.

The house next door to us was bought by a property developer. She's the one I asked to recommend a plumber...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

I'm celebrating having had a warm shower today. Our hot water cylinder had sprung a leak & we (OK, my husband) had to drain both the cold and hot water cylinders and then wait for the plumber to get and fit a new one. After a week with only one mains water fed sink & loo, & nothing but cold strip wa...
