I have just never used a microwave cooker. There doesn't seem a lot of point with the cooker I have, the closed fire top for long cooks, and the pressure cooker. I used to do microwave frequency work, ...

They could well be. They are quite small, but as there are a lot of them, they make up in numbers for size.

Son saw two buzzards in the woods, one with food in its claws, being chased by another o ...

Pity about the microwave. I don't know anything about them as I have studiously avoided the things, but if the turntable lifts out, it might be as well to check there are no crumbs or other bits caugh ...

I would have thought bears were dangerous all year round given that they are rather large and capable of killing people. That one seems to have had a rather bad time though.

Are you going to convert that to kindling, or will you make other things from it? Yes, doing the shopping once a week needs some forward planning, and a fridge at least is really needed. I also find m ...

I have no objection to any form of peaceful protest. I am worried that some less peaceful protesters might jump on the bandwagon as can happen with all rather hardcore groups.

Slim, I agree that w ...

Do the spines break of easily if something attacks it? I hope your dog is all right after that. She should have a good idea now that you don't chase them.
