    Seen that advert for birificio Angelo Poretti? The one that's classically Italian, steeped in heritage and culture, drunken by the Mafia themselves? Brewed by carlsberg in the Midlands!!!

    As if coping with nettles and brambles isn't bad enough as I run or walk around the Charnwood hills, now I could get stung and eaten by a 500-million-year-old jellyfish: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-62291954

    Talking about brambles, due to the ridiculous weather that we have been having, there are already enough blackberries to make it worth harvesting them.

    Blackberries not ready yet here, but looking like a massive crop everywhere; the wild raaspberries are good already and the bilberries are still going strong and the best for years - no more room in the freezer unfortunately.
    Don't roll with a pig in poo. You get covered in poo and the pig likes it.

    Yes, I was practically in fist-fights with my local blackbirds trying to get my fair share of MY garden's gooseberries the other week, and yet they've not touched the wild rasps lining the lanes around here!

    Blackbirds are the garden fruit robbers, have you noticed the call or noise they make whilst stuffing themselves with your fruit? It's a kind of self satisfied "I've nicked your fruit and there's sod all you can do about it, belch".

    I once read a line in a poem that read "as polite as a blackbird". I can't remember the poem's name, but it struck a cord with me, as usually I see them on my lawn, hopping around in their smart shiny black 'suits', 'arms' tucked behind their backs, kind of looking polite. But yes! When it comes to fruit-nicking they're as rough as a badgers arse! I still like blackbirds though. Their singing is enchanting (when they're not belching!).

    Interesting. In the pre-cambrian there was virtually no oxygen in the air or in the sea, and the seas were very hot due to the amount of volcanic activity. I'm surprised it actually managed to survive, it must have derived energy mainly through some early form of photosynthesis because there won't have been a lot for it to eat.
