Sleep sound, for tomorrow we march on Elstree!
Pixie Lott, has just been voted out of Strictly at the quarter final stage.
NNNNOOOOOOOO! how did she ever come to be in the dance off? She is one of the best that has ever been on the programme,
Why Len, why?
Sleep sound, for tomorrow we march on Elstree.
Note to self: It is a TV programme proffered, and not a genuine dance contest,
and that's from a hoofer who has won in Blackpool, albeit it on a stage in a nightclub on a Saturday afternoon, after the wrestling with a new age routine that included a series of forward rolls and headstands, but that's for another day.
More news as we have it.
but now, a formative piece of Nordic Noir
See the genesis of Wallander
Having maintained that cormorants find fishing the Dever a tricky business, Graculus is now making a concerted effort to master the art. Three flushed from a tree on the island in the flight pond. Late evening perambulations confirmed that it is not being used as a roost, but I have seen Noggin the Nog's budgerigar flighting this valley most days in the last two weeks.
Child A and some such thing she's written is now a feature on Google Scholar, which I'm sure was some form of 1980's canned lager. These long words which are beyond the comprehension of Madam or myself, are also to be published in some journal, which we will both read but not understand but clutch with maternal pride.
She's a day younger than George Ezra and all he can come up with is three chords and a rumbling bass baritone on the One Show, although I have heard say he has some ability........... but is he on Google scholar?
Not a bit of it,and he had a 24 hour head start, Well done Maisie!
Here's Chris with some news from the envrionment.
A few quotes jumped out,
"Wild broodstock schemes: fraught with issues and, in all probability not the solution to more fish in the river"
Maybe not always, but in my humble experience they can work, but success is site specific, influenced by habitat management plans and should not be discounted
"WTT is not against stocking - we recognise that many clubs would fold if they could not stock. WTT is not a pro triploid lobby"
The WTT may not be anti stocking but several of its members are, I have received the emails after the words "rearing fish" and "stocking" appeared amid this written rubbish a while back. Stocking is required in some rivers to provide income streams from angling in order to implement habitat directive.
The WTT have come across as a pro triploid lobby for a very long time and I have heard them make many noises to that effect.
"Triploids rise(if anything) slightly better than their diploid counterparts"
Apart from the supercilious nature of this statement, there are many who would dispute it and also attest that triploids have a tendency to shoal.
There's a National Strategy been formed on the back of this, which is perceived by some as a bit of a bugger's muddle, but I won't go on, and indeed can't, as upon my release, the newsletter was used to light the fire that evening, but suffice to say the vein on my temple threatened to throb and I almost repaired to my cave to shake my fist angrily at the outside world,
and sat down to read something a little more lucid (Prostate Years, Moley always serves as a restorative on such occasions) and make preparation for emails brim-full of internet enlightenment for this piece of impertinence regarding the WTT.
