Re: Where is everybody?

Happens in every single organisation of any size Hen-Gen, who wants their dirty laundry aired for all to see?. In my experience people guilty of misconduct at work, whatever form that may take, are rarely sacked (in this case I believe Oxfam sacked 4 and forced 3 to resign). It is more often the cas...

Re: Where is everybody?

Yes Marigold, not condoning any of the behaviour but there is the danger of throwing out the baby with the bathwater with regards to Oxfam.

Re: Where is everybody?

Not bad for 77 in that video is he?. I do find this personal pronoun stuff where people wan't to be called "ne" "ey" or "ze" and then want it enshrined in law as getting into the realms of the surreal.

Re: Different predators

You have done the right thing and if the landowner has withdrawn permission then it ought to be the end of it. No consolation to you but the falconer was probably not purposely targeting your chickens, normally it's rodents that they go after.

Re: Planning a Spring Staycation?

While ordinarily I wouldn't condone anyone visiting Sunderland, I suppose you have a good reason to risk it BYM. The Mackems will certainly be delighted that the pair of you will cause the average IQ in the city to temporarily double. Being serious though, it's a really good event, the tall ships ca...

Re: Where is everybody?

You'd expect Caffe Nero to fix that handle, then, as it's clearly not working as it can reasonably be expected to... Breathing in caffeine particles all day doesn't appear to encourage the staff's thinking skills? It's been like that for three years, so in some ways your right, the staff must have ...

Re: Where is everybody?

Not sure it's funny, beyond the nowt funnier than folk angle, but this is something that always causes me and Mrs Dinosaw to shake our heads at each other in puzzlement. At our local Caffe Nero they have decided that they only want to attract a certain type of customer, to drink there you must pass ...

Planning a Spring Staycation?

Thinking ahead to brighter warmer times I don't know how many people go for breaks in Spring but perhaps this might interest somebody. Landmark trust does self catering lets in historic buildings and uses the funds to save further historic buildings in danger of being lost. The link doesn't show all...

Re: Where is everybody?

I always feel utterly fed up in February which stops me posting much. Starting to see some of the chickens come back into lay now, good old Thuringians were the last to stop and have been the first to start back up.

Re: My Silkie needs hen school

This put a smile on my face this morning Val, when the time comes perhaps her sister will show her how it is done. Until then I guess you will have to put her in the broody coop to snap her out of it.
