The Wisdom of Badgers

I was just reading through some old copies of Private Eye, and came across this, written during the floods of  2014  that seemed to put much of Thameside under water for weeks.


Scientists claim that badgers:

a)  build homes ABOVE flood levels

b)  don't rip up hedgerows, grass, trees, grass verges and other rain-absorbing materials

c)  don't tarmac over the entrances to their homes."

(Private Eye, No.1360, 21 February - 6 March 2014)

Fair point - well made.

Jackie came for supper last night - roast lamb, roast potatoes, carrots, leeks, mint sauce, and gravy.   And a lemon drizzle pudding (courtesy of Waitrose).  Lovely evening, as always, though she is finding her new computer is stressing her out.    We had a good talk at the Kingdom Hall this morning, and the first of two Watchtower articles on marriage.  If only every one in the world would have attended... this is perfect advice from the Maker of marriage.   And on the way home, I finished my magazine route - found both at home and had a chat - and managed to finally deliver an invite (my last) to the house without a letter box.
