  1. Some marinas are offering reduced fees while virus restrictions are being enforced, so don't sign too quickly.
  2. I won't buy farmed salmon after watching programmes on how badly they are treated but pay extra to buy wild Alaskan salmon from Waitrose, it even looks and tastes better.
  3. To be selected, you have to apply, so I didn't and wasn't.
  4. Well a baited trap in the open could catch birds too but I was assured that the target was rats.
  5. Checked with police, perfectly legal as long as shot doesn't leave my premises and I've tested the gun and cartridges, Eley sub-sonic magnum and the pellets hitting a target make more noise than the gun.
  6. I did think that but better not as it would create an atmosphere with my neighbours. I just can't believe that anybody would put a baited rat trap in the open, it could catch birds as well and is probably illegal.
  7. Now up to 3 or 4 hogs but lost one to next doors rat trap, took it to vets but didn't make it. I can't believe anyone would put rat traps in the open. When I was doing conservation/pest control I either put poison underground or traps in boxes with small entrance holes, not baited in the open.
  8. When Mrs B finds the hand book and receipt I will be advertising an electric start, 4 stroke petrol engine, self propelled lawn mower. Only been used half a dozen times or so as my back got worse soon after buying it. Probably about £200/£250, depending on what I paid so start saving your pennies. Found the paperwork. I bought it 4 years ago and it cost me £315. It's only been used once this year. It's a BMC Racer with a 20 inch cut so how about £160. Used by my BIL last month so starts and works well. Pictures available online.
  9. Silstar Traverse X. Specialist. 11.5ft. 2-4oz. 9/10 condition. C/W bag. Sought after bass, carp and pike rod. £75 + post.
  10. I nearly got caught out last week when I had to renew mine for the crime of being over 70. Probably same site as had DVLA in the address and was top of the page. They asked all the right questions but when I came to the end there was a £9 charge. I deleted it but I'm still wondering if they have retained my personal info for selling on so I've reported it to the Cyber Crime unit, just in case.
  11. No problem with nature doing what nature does in the wild but in my garden I decide what happens.
  12. I needed their larvae to feed the newt tadpoles as the nearest place I can get daphnia is 10 miles away now and it's over a £1 a bag. We don't have malaria or Zika virus here so apart from itchy bites the parents are harmless. As I am no longer stocking ponds, apart from a separate pond for GCN's the main pond will have to fend for itself. Times are hard for us pensioners.
