owner was livid. He ranted & shouted at me- which made it difficult to be
immediately apologetic. Trouble is, he was walking his dog in a field but kept
it on a lead, and dogs feel cornered by that, especially when a bigger dog comes
bounding over. It must be easy to for this bloke to see Bessie as the baddie, an
not notice the likely snap his terrier most certainly will have done. Westland
terriers have been bred for hunting, killing rabbits and the like, plus their
reactions are very fast; but the guy wasn’t in the mood to hear any of that. His
threat was to have a letter from a solicitor come through my door. Quaint.
Maybe I am getting old, perhaps that’s why I find a growing interest in plants. It’s not the big colourful spreads that appeal to me, it’s the little tenacious ones, the ones that seed themselves, the ones that come from nature itself. Looking after them is like defending the underdog.
See this link: BBC Gardening. What I don’t understand is- why remove weeds? What’s bad about them?
While I’m at it, why do people poison ants’ nests? They are clean, don’t bite, cause no damage and appear to be entirely harmless- unless you are another ant maybe. So why do it?
Unless you have a clear reason- then don’t do it.

FSX scenery– It’s fairly easy to switch off custom scenery in Flight Sim X, so here is a with/without screenshot pair to show my Chernobyl scenery. The default is fairly empty, just a road, a forest and a railway. Eastern Europe is really low detail in this simulator, lots of scope for owners of FSX Deluxe.
Pripyat, as seen in this video ought to be my next project to tackle, though Harlech Castle is nearly done so may as well complete that first.
