Re: nature notes

That's a really good spot Tweetypie, I have never seen one (except in a round jigsaw puzzle belonging to my Great Grandmother, that I remember completing as a teenager!) The bee situation is terrifying. I must admit I find it quite hard to distinguish between bee varieties, above the obvious ones. T...

Re: Books

I have just looked it up, and I must confess it doesn't sound like my sort of thing. However, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it Rick, and I can think of at least two people who might enjoy it, so I will recommend it to them, its always good to get a personal referral.

I love Murakami though!

Re: Coronavirus

Tweetypie, I am also very sad to read your news. I can't think of anything sensible to add to all the wise words above, except to say your ex-partner was obviously a key part of your life and so it is completely natural that you mourn him. I think going through the grieving process quite openly, alt...

Re: Mating Orpingtons

It is what the serious breeders do, but I never did it. As you know orps aren't the most prolific layers anyway, although some strains are not bad. Some of the males are absolutely huge as well, which doesn't help the poor hens and I understand some of them are not particularly fertile because of (?...

Re: The Potting Shed

One of the things I can no longer do is to bring seed potatoes to Portugal. So, possibly I will be eating an illegal crop this year (I often have rogue potatoes left in the soil which I don't spot and they sprout again, although not very well). Going back to the OP from the Guardian, I can't really ...

Re: Christmas

Happy Christmas from me as well, lets hope 2021 is better all round! Or, in case there are some Portuguese speakers on here 'Feliz Natal' or 'Boas Festas' to include the New Year as well. Whatever you are all doing, and wherever you are, I hope you do enjoy some time off and some good times with or ...

Re: Coronavirus

That's so clever! Good news on your jab Marigold. My elderly mother is awaiting an appointment. Although her surgery has started doing vaccinations, (in a hotel) as she is in good health there is no particular rush. She was amazed when I told her, she really isn't expecting anything to happen before...

Re: Helpless

OMG, BYM, I am so so sorry. What an awful thing to have happened to the poor man. I know its natural to blame yourself if you think you could/should have done something, but I hope once the shock has worn off you will be able to know you did all you could and nothing more could be expected of you. I...
