Re: Panic buying

The best bit of optimism I can squeeze out of this is that for just a few it will be the start of being bitten by the bug. Probably not the person who thought it was a good idea to buy 10 hens (that lay two eggs a day apparently!) but the family member that actually takes on the job of caring for th...

Re: Cheery Pics

Its near Morton-in the-Marsh and Batsford arboretum Icemaiden. https://www.sezincote.co.uk/ An inspired 'company man' built it in Mogul Indian style. The house is lovely (as the gardens) with an uncomfortable realisation that you are looking directly at the fine spoils of the East India Tea Co but i...

Re: Coronavirus

So funny! Like talking to my neighbour Mark earlier who said that his brother had seen someone coming out of the supermarket with a whole trolley full of frozen peas! Did he have an allotment? Is that a thing? Spreading peas on you're allotment? Mark's brother has three allotments! There are some s...
