Phew! It's too hot to be attempting to saw through an alder tree stump in this weather It was infested with alder leaf beetle larva and looked diseased & in terrible condition.


I got a quarter of the way through and said Nah! my back is cream crackered already despite a shedload of painkillers first thing this morning


I need a chainsaw really but not worth forking out for one for one stump.


I've picked a bowlful of ripe plum tomatoes that I'm going to de-skin to make a tomato sauce for some spagbol for tea.

You lucky so and so Rod, do you like yours warm or chilled?

It was on the news today that those who have a positive outlook on life, live longer by 11%, when compared to those who are always moaning. You know the type, the ones who are skilled in turning good news into bad

Definitely chilled Phil - I like my cold drinks really cold, and my hot drinks really hot.
Cider is ideal out of the FREEZER - about 1 minute before the contents start to solidify

Thatís how we were drinking it in Rhodes last year, glasses straight out of the freezer, you could watch the ice form in your drink.

Just had the thunderstorm here, lasted about 40 minutes. I took my son to air cadets about 6.45, just before the rain came, it was only a 10 minute run, and on my return, the same route, the road round the corner, in the dip, was completely flooded. I had to crawl through at about 5mph, even the bus coming opposite had to do the same.

With added ice for good measure
