Still a few weeks until Spring here, and it was cold, snowy and blowy when I spotted this chap this afternoon. Just after I took this he hopped into the shelter of the bush behind him. We are supposed to be getting more snow and cold tonight, poor fellow.

Most people take pictures of their meals for the internet, I took a picture of my manure. This is a few hundred yards from my house but because of their only entrance if you drive you have to go over a mile.

David, doesn't your local community have zoning laws covering the needed screening of business' stock yards? You'd think a garden center would have demonstration hedging as a barrier and boost to sales of privet.

We have all sorts of laws about property, business and otherwise, but I suspect that garden centre's stock of supplies will be exempt because it can't be seen from the road.

Talking about building regulations, my gardening chappie came round today and while he was pruning the buddleia I told him about my hedgehog and asked if he could build a feeding station for me (well, for the hedgehog) to keep its food dry... about an hour after he left he came back with this:



And I thought I was nuts. grin

You can't see the garden centre from anywhere as it's surrounded by trees and impossible to access without military training when it's closed.

A few weeks ago, it was Maynooth's birthday so I took him out to breakfast at a really nice restaurant situated on top of a hill overlooking the Swan River. This was the view from our table.

Henlys Corner (named after the ex-garage on the corner), the centre of my universe, at night, where Golders Green meets Finchley. I got the bus through here for most of the years home from school from 1969-75 after which it became a motorbike going around the back roads which was more direct.

LAst Sunday I went for a walk to Jack's Point, approximately a 30km return walk. The photos are unsorted at the moment but I thought I would share this blue damselfly.

I know my name's not Satguru but I'm here now... yes, that is the price per litre. The price does vary a little according to where you live but I bought petrol yesterday and paid 102p so not much difference.

Which is why you always hear hollow laughter from the Brits when Americans complain about the price of gas... laugh

Yes, 102p = £1.02 = $1.45

Not Satguru. grin

Yeah, that would be $5.48 per gallon. I paid $1.88 yesterday.

Ours is currently $1.16 a litre which is pretty cheap at the moment.

Precious is so similar to Lucy, even down to the white front. Victor is like her brother would have been, it's like still having her here.

Over 70% of the price of our petrol is tax. It's no different to taxing water, they know we have no choice and make us suffer for it. This is the point where the A1 and North Circular divide in Hampstead Garden Suburb, and had a roundabout till about the late 60s.
