    Oh they take risks all right @lindisfel , I didn't get to be told (by my children) until some 30 years or so had lapsed from the date of the risks...

    Actually, you might quite like the chia seed protein powder. I bought it for the same reason you have and was quite surprised that I liked it. Hemp seed protein powder was not very nice at all - so I was surprised that the Chia seed protein powder was good.

    I once tried hemp seeds - a very brief taste before the spittoon. My porridge obviously has 3.5 tablespoons of flaxseed not teaspoons.

    Hemp seeds are definitely very 'yuk'.

    Apparently they are trying to use hemp in carbon capture from atmospheric co2.
    They are using hydroponics and very little water is lost. Its an extremely vigorous and multi use plant and it shouldn't be necessary to cycle it to co2 again. Fabrics, industrial diamonds, carbon materials and the rest are possible imitating the oil based economy.

    Yes, I though my eldest had more sense than bungee jump off that bridge at Queenstown.

    Don't talk to me about pensions! Gordon Brown robbed mine so this mob might as well put in the finishing touches.:(

    Great mountain pass, I can see the horsemen galloping through in full battle cry.

    I would love a take it easy day, however it's not happening yet, still loads to do. MrSlim manages a quick whizz round on the mower in between the sun and the rain. Excellent timing. Thunderous rain accompanied our efforts to erect new shelving in the barn, reorganize stored items onto said shelves and.... Hey! We can see the floor.
    Oh look, there is still some mud left from the flood last year. I never claimed to have cleared it all.
    @lindisfel In between we had another sighting of the hoglet. Out a bit early at 4pm, but not sufficiently hungry to take cat biscuits. Perhaps it was disturbed by the mowing? MrSlim is now under strict orders to be hoglet aware while strimming. I do hope it's not living inside the walls.

    good evening all :)

    4.2 today

    the weather's quite chilly here today and it's a quiet day at home for us, Mum was seeing her visitors off at the garden gate at 10.30am then going back to bed for a couple of hours :)

    mr gee and I are in the process of replacing the rather rotted half barrel container of plants at the corner with a new half barrel, surprising amount of soil in it to remove but we got some slates put down for the base to stand it on and the new tub placed and refilled. We've watered it and left it to settle before we put plants in it so hopefully plants will go in tomorrow :)

    Hope your day is treating you well :)

    @gennepher - your Zhang Daquian inspiration has produced a subtle and effective piece of art, I like it and I see Popeye is still protecting your inspiration ;)

    @SlimLizzy - hope your shoulder settles quickly

    @dunelm - splendid cliffs today, I especially like the distant vista too :)

    @Muddy Cyclist - glad the quire rehearsal went well :)


    art bit - painted on Hahnemuhle Britannia

    I woke up at 1.30 am, but I had gone to bed at 7pm. I could not get back to sleep again. So I got up at 2 am. I needed to move about a bit and then try again to see if I can get back to sleep, because I was trying hard to make sure I was having enough sleep. It was a horrid grey day yesterday, an energy sapping day.

    I am now in the kitchen, boiling the water for a cuppa, when I went out into the front garden to look at the stars for a moment.

    There was a cat sitting in the road looking at me, and I started to walk towards it. But it got up on to it's legs and begins to walk towards me. And I am thinking this is a very large cat, bigger than any in our road...

    Then the street light catches it. Ooops, it's a badger. But the badger continues to walk towards me. Friendly, like it is expecting this human to feed it. And I am thinking more 'ooops'....it was a very curious badger. And its legs were very long. The badgers I see around here don't have the short stubby legs you generally see in photos of badgers.

    I knew I couldn't run indoors fast enough, so I put my hands on my hips. Badger stops in its tracks. Finally badger takes a few steps down the road, and turns again, it's face still seeming to ask me if I have food. This went on a few mins. Finally badger turns down the next road.

    Painting in Procreate...A Curious Badger.

    Another well painted land/seascape in your signature style. You capture the light so well on the water and the hills as usual are just magnificent, I enjoy these painting so much.

    I hope the planting goes well.

    thank you @geefull and a good job with that half barrel - we did similar earlier in the year - loads of soil. Another splendid painting from you - I like your style, it makes me yearn for these places.

    The curious tale of the long legged badger caught splendidly in this piece.
