How to Save a Bee

The wonderful and incredibly talented Gretel over at Middle of Nowhere has put up a video on her blog that I think you, gentle reader, will find both uplifting and useful. Anything we can do to help nature in its losing battle against the dominance of man has got to be a good thing. Mind you, I'm not sure I'd have been brave enough to pick it up - a jar and a bit of card would have had to do... Enjoy the sounds of a Spring day in sunny Oxfordshire as well.

Hello Possums!

Here's a fun quiz for a grey (well it's grey here in Scotland anyway) Thursday morning. Are you an emu or a koala?

You Are a Koala Bear

You are living proof that appearances can be deceiving. You are not as cute and cuddly as you look.

You have endless compassion for those you love, but you also don't like to be messed with!

You may move a bit slowly, but you make up for your slowness by being clever.

You've lived long enough to know that you should do your best to stay out of harm's way.

I am now Officially an Elder

Well, fellow bloggers, a new milestone has just been reached here in the Pond. I now join the ranks of people older than the Prime Minister.

As he is 43 and I am a little bit older than that, I will now be grumbling a lot about the good old days, complaining about the price of beer and cinema tickets and shaking my head at the things young people wear.

Best of luck David - I think you are going to need it...
