    You can use google streetview to wander around your old haunts. I do that sometimes.

    The last tree disappeared from a neighbouring cul de sac about 10 years ago - now virtually every garden there has been dug up to make way for a hard standing. The grass verges are vanishing as well.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    This is going to cause trouble. I think Spain have made a big mistake.

    He made a big mistake taking on the Russians in the first place. Those boys play for keeps. I know he lost a few quid but he should have chalked that up to experience. He's out of his depth now.

    Just been sat out in the garden watching the bats. Missus thinks I'm a bit mental, being fascinated by these 'ugly little freaks. I think they are another of nature's 'cool dudes', quietly getting on with it. Perfectly evolved to their chosen job.

    Unlike humans, whose evolution has done no more than grow a bigger brain. In fact as the centuries pass, we become more and more suited to staying indoors.

    Last summer the cat brought a bat into the house. How the hell she caught it I don't know.

    Got up a bit early this morning (like old folks do) to spray some Nippon wasp nest destroying foam at this nest which seems to be inside the soffit by the front door. I gave it a blast for about 10 seconds, then quickly ducked back inside.

    I don't have to leave the house for another 3 or 4 hours, hopefully they will have forgiven me by then All the same, I think I'll leave by the back door.

    Wow, you were up early, I was listening to LBC at that time.

    I used some Nippon stuff to clear a wasps nest many years ago, it worked, no further trouble.
