A Big City solution...

 

In 2019, Riverside Park Conservancy brought a herd of goats to Gotham, to create Goatham– a hard-to-access area in the northern part of the Park. The goats, who have all retired from former careers, are from a local farm. They have taken up residency for the summer on sloped terrain that is rife with invasive plants.

In Bristol they have the less imginative Goat Gully.

They are difficult to find!

If there was a way to keep them off roads, they'd do well cleaning up litter!

The life has seemed to have left the forum lately. People are discouraged, contributors have left, so no postings from them, and the rest of us have little to be enthusiastic about.

And I, considering what’s happening with stock, wonder how long it’ll take me to lose complete interest.

Logging into the forum this morning, it took me a couple of minutes to read postings. How different it is, now. The ones who have left just might be the smartest of the bunch. Maybe I’ll get smart before long.

Yes finding it difficult to motivate myself to take photos to upload. Just logged a sale under the new contract and that was pretty discouraging.

 

However nice to see some old faces still around.

Where have you not been?

Just checked back and I have uploaded 491 images in the last year. Not bragging, I am sure you have uploaded many more than that in a year.

 

ITMA

 

The North-East, East Midlands, Essex, Notts, France, Germany, Benelux, NZ- you name it, I haven't been everywhere.

Yes, my average used to be 1000/year.

I've seen no blight nor goats in the produce section of my nearby M&S Foodhall. 

Ate another bunch of my blight ruined potato crop last night.  Tasted perfect, although the spuds were a little small.

Simple solution - eat more of them.😃

Have now lifted all of our blighted spuds. The second earlies are OK, they grow quite quickly, but the maincrop hadn't reached maturity. However slug/wireworm damage was evident in some of the tubers, so maybe just as well to get them out of the ground.

 

Made the first Spanish Tortilla of the season using the Charlottes. also used some of our onions - apparently some people make Tortilla without onion, now why would you do that? - it was delicious.  Probably by the time the Charlottes have all been used up we will be sick of the taste of Tortilla - but that's way ahead.

 

Tortilla with baked beans, Tortilla with salad, Tortilla with (homemade) coleslaw, Tortilla with crispy Kale  etc etc.  The Spanish eat it with bread, a tad too close to a potato sandwich for my liking.

Dusty Hill died! Joey Jordison yesterday and Dusty today. I loved his bass tone, with Billy's superb guitar over the top. I'll be having a ZZ Top session this evening.

Having once been a guitar player, I don't like hearing that someone's guitar hero has passed. Sorry, Colin.

 

I've been hard at it this morning, trying to establish and use the newish NHS app. There's a key word used on many app download pages that announce trouble. I'm referring to the word "simple." The NHS says this app is simple. I may be a bit simple, but this app is not. As I write this, I am now okay to log on and use the site. Thanks, NHS. 🤪 But I'll need a nap and brandy before I try that.

 

I spent about 2 hours wrestling with this thing this morning. The questions were endless. On and on it went. As we got near the end, they wanted a picture of my passport . . . and a video of me saying 4 numbers. 

 

I remain a Stranger in a Strage World.

The app is not difficult to use but they have to use a very high level of security checking initially to prevent impersonation which is right in my opinion. You don't want someone getting into your medical records. Imagine the chaos if it was easy. Vaccination records are becoming a big thing. I think it is easier for people with British passports as they can check the details more easily. I already had online access to my NHS records through my GP surgery which I got some years ago and it was easy to get the app login sorted.

Passport? Video? :blink:I wasn't asked for any of that, just NHS number, DoB, then a mobile phone verification code I think. Perhaps it's because Ed is so young (to the NHS). They don't know him yet;)

Yeah, I've only had an NHS number for two years. 

 

And Michael? Why are they using the term "simple?"

Simple to use once you are in  Edo as I said.

I go most of my life without being called for jury service, then was called for a Coroners Court a few years back. Then after arriving at the court 20 miles away I was told I would not be required as they always request more jurors than they needed. Now called up again, this time for the Crown Court. What bad luck.

There's Gen covering the massive length and breath of The Outback and so many of you making your way up and down hills and valleys. I can't remember the last time I walked more than 15 minutes from my front door. 

 

I snapped a few pieces of public art in a small church garden near me the other day. When I went back to see if I missed some information about it yesterday, everything was gone; it popped up and then it popped out. Gone. ???

Edo, I might be covering distances, but as for walking, you and I are misguided. I thought the trip would be perfect to be more active, walk more, get fitter, easy peasy I believed. It turned out to be quite the opposite. Long distances mean long hours of driving. Then once in the Bush, what's better than sit down and listen to the birds. And ah..... those Happy Hours by a campfire... We do the odd hike whenever we can but all and all, I've never been so unfit in my life! On the other hand, never been happier or more free.

A friend asked for photos of an early 1980's gay protest march in Huddersfield. I don't appear to have taken any. I apologise for this laziness. However it made me upload more of a similar march in Bradford in 1979:  the Frank Kelly defence march by lesbian and gay campaigning groups in Bradford, Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom, on 10th February, 1979.

Shouldn't that be posted over in the Good News for Flowers thread?

No. I wanted to do something but the rain has stopped me.
