Go carefully Cassandra. I hate high winds and they make me so tired. If they are too high and gusty we have to give up in the woods as it is too dangerous with the risk of falling branches and trees. ...

You seem to have done brilliantly Cassandra. Getting things on a sound footing seems the best way to keep the hall going. The way the others were going seemed a good way to get the Council to pull out ...

You might be able to protect if with a patent, but that is not a thing I know a lot about. There is probably someone near you who deals with patents and could tell you if it is protectable. Certainly ...

A Harpie was a Greek mythological being that had the head and body of a woman and wings and claws of a bird. It is usually applied to a woman who yells, shouts and is generally unpleasant. Rather mor ...

As you say, not a swarm as it is the wrong time of year. Any that went out now would die pretty quickly. Why was someone looking at bees at this time of year? The usual work now is just to check the m ...

Glad your robin and woodmice are now in residence again.

The leaves have been quite late falling here this year, and the colours have been glorious, but most down now. Most of our brambles keep th ...

Had a meeting with the power line people about the work that needs doing, and we should be able to manage it. They will be doing half in March/April and half in about September next year, so might be ...
