Re: Feather pecking

Its a food chain thing. Chickens are in the food chain. We can eat mealworms (as long as they are produced to a standard considered edible) the same as we can eat cow or pig. But you cant feed cow, pig or mealworms to a chicken and then eat the chicken. Its a inherently dangerous thing to do. ... Ch...

I love Murakami though!
May Kasahara in 'The Wind Up Bird Chronicle' is really funny!

Re: Books

I looked as well rick and was surprised at the price. Similarly a CD by Gunhild Carling. There seems no logic to it. DVDs are ridiculously cheap. Yet other things seem really expensive. Yes. I think, if music is available to buy by download (or pay-to-view for films) then it keeps the price down on...

Re: Coronavirus

I was knocked back by a guy I used to know when I heard that he died and ... well lets say I wasn't a fan but spent a lot of time with him and went through a lot of stuff. Its OK, its a shock and turns over all sor...

I'm not a big book reader generally. The last blast was Murakami.

Re: Bird boxes

I would love to make an owl box with somewhere to put it. There's one over on Newbold Comyn that is falling to bits but I guess the location wasn't successful otherwise it would have been replaced.
