Re: feeling determined!

Yes, it is. I know several people with knee issues and calf issues as they have done too much too soon. My SIL seems to have been free of these problems, she's been running 5 or 6 years now, maybe longer. Its not fast, just gentle, but she belongs to a club, as does another friend of mine who went f...

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

You are right, Marigold; as usual you are the voice of common sense. No offence taken!

Re: feeling determined!

Apparently my Nan had a miniscule waist as a young woman (b1909), my Mum has seen a photo of her. However, throughout my life Nan was as wide as she was tall (about 5ft). Slight exaggeration but you get my drift! I was a skinny child, put on weight as a student (we seem to live on starchy carbs as t...

Re: Florence and the snake

I hadn't even noticed!! My SIL lives in France and sometimes has to return dogs which have strayed to a neighbour about a km away. Once it was a young pup, who shouldn't have been out, and a few weeks ago it was apparently the biggest dog on the planet, which was very thin. When the owner came to ge...

Re: nature notes

You are right, that would have been an excellent idea.....now why didn't I think of that! Tonight's installment was also quite interesting, if less exciting. We watched a praying mantis lay her eggs, on the back of an outdoor chair, making the cocoon as she went. It took maybe 30-40 mins all in, and...

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

OK HG, I will take up your gin based chat, being fond of the odd G&T. I couldn't care less what T I use, its normally own brand, or Schweppes. But I do have some G preferences - Tanqueray10, Copper House (? Copper Something anyway, made by Adnams), Ophir (? not sure that is spelt right either), and ...

Re: Florence and the snake

That's interesting about the lizard and the snake Chris, as you probably know I don't have any chickens here but the challenges you face would be similar to mine should I start again, and although I think the heat is the major issue, the new and unfamiliar predators are something else which slightly...

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

I have sent my £10, the forum is such a lovely place, not just about chooks and I am pleased it exists and am very happy to support its existence. Its worth it to me not to have to engage with adverts, although the banner one across the top was fine, but I heartily dislike those sites where there ar...

Re: nature notes

Great excitement! A few days ago we were sitting inside when a noise started inside the woodburner (which is off). Thinking it might be a trapped bird OH carefully opened the door. It wasn't a bird, but a rather large bat! It was hanging upside down and we had a very good look at its bared teeth (qu...
