I understand that it is not advised to use bird feeders during the breeding season, which is now, as it is better for them and their brood to rely on their natural diet. In the winter when food is scarce is fine. I know, I love watching the birds too but it would be best if you put away the feeder until winter.

Not the best day in life. One of my friends a waitress at my watering hole in Cupertino was killed in a car crash yesterday at 24 yrs old. A friend who I have known for 8 yrs in the Philippines, her Mother died yesterday after being in hospital for the last month. Colleague in Saudi the week before. Strike 3 they say. Hope that is it for now.

Morning peeps,certainly a bad day Mr Nigel,my sympathies.
Dull here again, sick of grey skies.
Slept in a bit due to sitting until the early hours watching the box set of 'Justified' which I ordered from Amazon on Tuesday Tea time and was delivered about ten am on Wednesday Morning, good service.

Good morning good people.
Grey again here too.
Off on a short canal trip today.
Nothing strenuous but there is
a pub at the turning back point.

Sorry to hear your bad news Nigel.
It's amazing how these things sometime happen in clusters.

That's not too good at all, [email protected]. The Grim Reaper has certainly been busy around us this year.

A belated good morning to you all. Been at it since 630am. Lots of pick ups and delivery of stuff I need having time changes. Working in between cleaning and sorting out the house.

Crow bringing up smaller crows season here. A couple of sets out front and ditto the back. Seem much more territorial this year and certainly much noisier. They really do have ugly voices. Not been divebombed yet. But that's a game, I know where they are and their tactics and a suddenly raised folded umbrella or newspaper really messes up their flight path.

Another grey start to the day but hope is in sight. The guessers
say it will all change from Sunday. We shall see.

Yesterday's trip up the Trent and Soar was good fun; if a tad
chilly. Beer at the turning point was excellent - Doom Bar at
it's very best.

Good morning all. Busy start as per normal. More work of my boss coming my way. Sunny here.

The saga of the box...Box finally came at 355pm, the driver had got lost, so they sent another driver to get it. He parked in the middle of the street. Opened the door and he said your box is here and just sat there. Got it myself and scanned it as well. He was twice the size of me. Got box inside and started to assemble. Knock on door FedEX, guy was really nice and came back 30 mins later. Did a load of clearing up, but by 8pm was shaking and had to rest. Roll on Tuesday!

Another lorry has hit a low bridge in town because the vehicle's load was too high. The bridge is marked in BFO fluorescent letters "Low Bridge" and the maximum height. What part of 'low' do these drivers not understand?? Not only has it disrupted road traffic, but trains on the ECML are now being delayed until the bridge is checked.

Hehehe ... seeing that pic reminds me exactly why I never dry clothes or any other materials outside, ric. Apart from the damage the sunlight does to fabrics, the "cardboard effect" can be a little difficult to live with. Clothes dried outside in the sun just feel revolting.

Now that it's mostly summer (southern hemisphere excluded - we'll send it back later),
I must say I am enjoying the McDonald's reg. iced coffee. Shop is right at my return bus stop and very convenient, not too sweet and refreshing. At the summer rate of $1, I think they are pissed off when it's the only thing I buy.

Bluey my darling
The best thing for all your washing is to hang it in the sun
Kills odours, natural bleaching etc
If you're worried about fading colours, turn it inside out

Whatever happened to the old-style Harvest Festivals like this one?





Nowadays it seems that a few tins of veg and a sliced loaf will do.

I've probably moaned about this before, but I wish horse riders had to pick up their animal's droppings like us dog owners have to. Path I often take the girls on is also popular with them at this time of year, resulting in a zig zag style of walking in order to avoid steaming piles every so often. They also seem to be a delicacy through the eyes of a dog. One will leave it alone when told, but the other has to stay on the lead as she can't help but tuck in.

Thanks, gupta ... I know there are ways that sunshine is good for clothes but I do feel that its destructive properties outweigh the benefits. I always use the tumble dryer which I have found is far more gentle on almost any material and helps things last a lot longer. The sun here in Western Australia is ferocious and tends to nuke fabrics in very short order.

Nobody seems to have mentioned that it's Friday. So I just did.
