Unfortunately when the white people from Europe, mainly the UK in the cases of Australia and New Zealand, colonised them, they missed their native animals and birds, so introduced them. It didn't do a ...

It may not have been very common, but was apparently used in some village halls and similar buildings. He told us about it when we were doing acetylene in chemistry. I knew about the lights for bikes ...

That is why they shut the motorway. If the cylinder had gone off like some of those, it could have taken out a big lorry let alone a car. Rather overkill in the case near here, but better safe than so ...

I would concur about the H&S. Nasty fumes, very hot stuff etc. Also a drawback of acetylene is that it is unstable if hot. Someone managed to set his garage with oxy-acetylene welding equipment in ...

Both interesting. I had to look up both the beetle and the junco as never heard of either. We do learn a lot about the natural history of other parts of the world on here.

For some reason the pheasants have fallen silent. Perhaps they have now all got their territories and have shut up as they may also have attracted foxes, buzzards, kites, and other animals that fancy ...

I will look up the address and PM you, but I will send your greetings anyway as a card will be a bit late now. Still a card in the New Year is nice as well.

Husband and I delivered 50 log sacks ye ...

Not for foraging, but it seems to have been a good year for magpie inkcaps too. Saw some on a roundabout near us. I think they are generally uncommon, but seem to have taken to the area round our fire ...

Might be interesting. They must have just arrived yesterday as today it was quiet, so they must have been setting up territories. Now is the time when walking through the woods quietly meditating ...

We have a lot on order and I now have the majority of them made; just need to deliver them. In fact if some don't get delivered soon I won't have any more room, so hoping over half will go this week. ...

I was working at bagging logs yesterday and this rather magnificent cock pheasant was making a row out the back of the store. It seemed completely unbothered by me even though I was throwing logs in i ...

What a pity about the beard Gregotyn. Not really the time of year to have it cut either, as I have heard bearded men say it keeps their face warm in winter. Us women either have to get cold or wear a ...

I am afraid that I prefer a bit of luxury these days, which is why we have gone for the trailer for camping at shows. I have never gone real wilderness camping, but do use occasional bits from the woo ...
