Re: Coronavirus

Unfortunately, Margaid, words do not fail me. The sooner we get the army on to the streets the better. This is no time to be concerned about the finer points of civil liberties. Such occurrences will become more common unless they are stamped out.

Re: The Potting Shed

Well though not edible just before the shutdown I bought an Espostoa melanostele, a Peruvian old lady, and a Sanseviera trifasciata, a mother-in-laws tongue. I get daily pleasure from seeing them on my window sill along with other kinds of plants. I’ve always loved house plants because they provide ...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Great picture bym. I bet nature all over the place is doing really well out of the current situation.
And doesn’t this enforced leisure time help the learning experience. Today I’ve read up about the Greenland Shark and the Immortal Jellyfish. Both mind blowing creatures.

Re: Coronavirus

We have to bear in mind that average I Q is 100. All of us on here have a much higher IQ than that which means that there are an awful lot of people whose IQ is much lower than 100 ... Speak for yourself. A lifetimes experience has taught me that I lie somewhere between an idiot and a moron.

Re: Coronavirus

Love your Tolkien reference Marigold. But I’m planning on at least another 15 years yet. To many incomplete projects to snuff it just yet. 😀 And I’ve only had 5 years of married life.

A No1 buzz cut does me. Head, eyebrows, beard. Takes about 5 minutes.

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Equally good here. A real pleasure to be out (in my own fields). People are ringing me every day to check I’m OK. Keep forgetting my age. Initially I think why are they ringing me?

Re: Just hatched 7 Brahmas.........

Congratulations. We all need to remember that life goes on. I’ve got 35 of my own eggs in the incubator along with 18 bought in barred rock and buff leghorn eggs. Brahmas aren’t my thing because I don’t do feathered legs/feet but I’m sure you’d have no problem selling them in a normal year. But in t...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

I was going to snap my lambs when they come in 3weeks but if I use my iPad then I can’t post them on here. I’ve tried the method recommended but I can’t make it work.
Anyone who knows how to do it prepared to receive the pic as an email then post it for me?

Re: Coronavirus

Not one of my heroes but she does say it how it is. Like the draconian restrictions on who can travel on the ferries here. My husband works away down south. It appears that he will not be able to return because he is not an island resident. I’m not complaining. After all we all have to make sacrific...
