The way some women dress like what a clown would wear. And then they catch me staring and ask me what is wrong with me. So I say why don't you dress in normal clothes. They reply what's normal, this is normal to me.

I say normal to you? yeah if you are going for an interview to be a court jester :D

At Dover? Good result, that.

Bottoms up, everyone. I'm on the red now, having got up at 7am to do some work, before getting to the supermarket nice and early so I could make one of my world-beating lasagnes.

Yesterday's haul:
Blue,great and coal tits.
A whole flock of long-tailed tits.
Couple of nuthatches
A dipper
A pair of goosanders.
Not bad!

Any Kingfishers lately, Tenb?
Couple of old tits sighted in the OS today!

May have mentioned I saw a pair together about a month ago.This last month the river has been up minimum 3to4 feet, sometimes far higher, and full of colour( makes it hard to fish by sight) so I figure they've moved upstream a bit where the Teme is slower and wider in certain stretches.Still hope they'll move back down to nest. I really love this time of year.

I had exactly the opposite problem when I was pulled by the police in Spain as a backpacking student. They asked me to poo in a bowl to reveal the hidden drugs (I didn't have any). I'd been on a long haul train in North Africa and the loos were minging so I hadn't breached for a couple of days. And I'd been eating weird stuff.

There was copious splattering and I was the only one who saw the funny side.

Frogs come out of hibernation, depending on weather, from Feb onwards


There is a place near me where a new housing estate has gone up, which has affected the migrating patterns of local toads. Last year, there was toadicide as the poor critters got squashed crossing a road - this year, the local conservation volunteers have set up a toad patrol.

Where we live we have one of the few remaining habitats of the Natterjack Toad.

The Reptile and Amphibian Trust in consultation with the Forestry Commission decided it would be a good idea to pull down half a forest to join up two wetland areas to increase the habitat.

They seemed not to have considered the fact that the A325 runs between the two sites :fsake:
