    Happy online miserable in physical world

    My Tesco experience this morning was a good one - staff were efficient, polite and friendly. So were the shoppers. Everyone seemed to understand and have respect for each other. I thought Tesco were well organised (compared to a Sainsburys experience a few days previous). Ditto when out and...

    Spring has sprung

    Reminds me of something I saw a couple of weeks ago whilst going for a walk across the Elmley marshes - a pair of marsh harriers flying and flirting with each other and then suddenly a peregrine cut like a scythe between them (well, it looked like it was between them from my angle) after something.

    Cut logs for sitting on - request for primary school.

    I can't help directly because I don't live in the area, but have you tried contacting local timber yards, Forestry Commission, other felling services, etc? They may be happy to help.

    Two mugs and a fire. The only problem is that there should be three mugs - but he's in hospital seriously unwell. Fingers crossed there'll be three mugs again soon...

    Wildlife pictures

    Hoot Hoot! I was out for a stroll today and, for no reason I can think, I happened to see owls. Not just the one, but three! A long eared owl: A short eared owl: And a (rather ****** off looking) little owl:

    Day Out Twilight

    Yup, that's it. If you ever see someone sitting below the cliffs with a mug of tea and sarnie then feel free to come and say 'hello.' Yeah, that's about right. 'Down' is a corruption of the Anglo-Saxon word 'dun', meaning hill. The Downs (both North and South) are gently rolling hills, made of...

    Isn't Tinder a gay dating app and Kindling an e-book thingy wotsit?

    Day Out Twilight

    Thought I would set off for a twilight walk the other day. I took my bag and change of clothes to work with me, and when it came time to leave I popped into the toilets to change (it was quite liberating being at work in only my pants, even if it was for just a few moments) and then...

    *The* Gift-It-On Thread

    Right then, thought I'd get this up sooner than later because I have a busy weekend. My offer...a Snugpak Sleeka Forces 35 rucksack. I've too many rucksacks and this one never gets used. Sitting in the shed it's worthless so I'd rather see it go to someone who will get a use out of it. So...
