Well the young lady that owns the horse is 20, don't know how old the horse is but not very, probably around 5.

Snow nearly gone and it's lovely to see the chickens scratching around the garden again. The pond is still mostly frozen but improving by the hour. I also moved the rabbit run to a new patch of grass so he is now literally a happy bunny!

This seemed to be the right thread to put this article on. It is an article about accidents,deaths etc in Tudor England. I am very interested in social history, so this caught my eye.  ponder

When doing some genealogy research for the 1800's, there are often reports of people killed by things falling on them accidently.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

I have been think about bees lately & one of my dearest old friends sent me a link to this very worrying article this week. I couln't a article on the subject; I could not access it until the new laptop was up & running. I think you might be interested in it, I know I was. I tried to find a suitable place to post it. I tried, & failed, to find the post which asked to sign up to a petition to help to save our bees.

 Oh dammit, now this link won't work¦.try this one¦¦

 

 

**** aargh  My apologies that the above post makes no sense but it is a bl**din miracle it exists at all because of the forums problems. It has taken me 4 goes to get this much info up where you can read it. 

 

OMG. I managed to get the link to work using Danny's advice.....that is a FIRST for me !!!!!!!!!!!! magic big_laugh cheers  I deserve a drink.
