Re: Favourite Car

I was going to post a few days ago and got distracted, but I see you have all wandered off where I was thinking. My favourite car was my first one, Gerald the Herald. All white bumpers and bits of chrome. He was big enough to put a bicycle in, but no synchromesh for first and no reversing lights, wh...

Re: nature notes

Your photos are so fascinating, every single moth looks interesting, far more than when I see them in real life. I love the Timothy name 9even the girls?!) and I particularly like the brown tail because it looks as though the moth is wearing a non-PC ermine robe!

Re: Coronavirus

Part of the official guidance here was to change your clothes when you got home after you had been out, when lockdown was at its height. We weren't told to change into clean clothes to go out, mind you! I do my Mum's shopping online and every week both she and I were getting through loads more cloth...

Re: Mareks Disease

Hardly anybody vaccinates against mareks at home, its not practical with just a few birds. It didn't use to be widespread, the advice about keeping a closed flock, but I will agree, just based on personal experience, although its not something you are likely to achieve or necessarily want to achieve...

I also agree. In my experience boys are always more cheeky than girls!

Re: nature notes

That fawn is incredible, I am amazed, I would have thought it would be too scared to approach. What a priceless memory for you, and thanks for sharing it with us. Bizarrely I have found half a dozen things which look like molehills here. There were 2 or 3 a couple of months ago, and recently another...

Re: Bryonia alba

Hurrah! You did well, the tipping up thing does work, although its a bit daunting the first time and not much fun with an enormous orpington I can tell you! The fluid usually smells pretty disgusting, sort of clearish/yellowish. Its a yeast infection, I think it can be caused by slightly spoiled foo...

Re: Burnt Bridges

Well I have just learnt at pesonal cost that FB can be bad as well as mad and dangerous to know as I seem to have fallen foul of a mirror site, which looks like FB but isn't. The worst thing is I hardly ever use FB, I never post, but I do check an animal shelter and a few other things from time to t...
