    Well, Trump is innocent but what a mess...

    Loads of Trump's former advisers have been jailed and this whole episode leaves a very bad smell. The Democrats are still gunning for Trump and the Republicans are luke warm on him too,…

    I think your pot roasts and other slow cooked dishes, are your speciality, Heero. They all sound great. Look forward to trying the lot of them in the future, when I can.:)

    That's one thing I want to have once the conservatory is installed and I can view the back garden properly is to have a bird feeder, cat proof preferably.

    I've found that birds seem to like the table near a bush or tree they can escape into, if needed. They don't like tables that are too far out in the open. There are quite a few cats in our area although fewer come into the garden now we have 2 fast…

    Depends how high it is Ron, but the birds tend to like a bit of clearing distance around the table so that they can look out for cats and other predators. If the bird tables are too crammed into corners, my birds don't like it.

    I may have to venture out into the garden later today as the bird table we bought recently looks like it will have to be moved a bit further from the house as the birds don't seem to like it where it is, will probably have to give the grass a trim too…

    Managed to spend a couple of hours in my front garden today, clearing up after winter and the recent winds.

    Did some work in the beds, clearing them of debris and old leaves, then moved onto the lawn. Normally I would aerate the lawn with a fork and…
