    All the fun of Crufts without the mess and the food bills. Smashing ruined building, very effective.

    Good morning everyone from another day in Mordor
    The wonder wheel of gasps and surprises after last nights pub fest came in at 5.8 this am

    A wander round Kensington Farmers Market yesterday morning and then the Festival of Remembrance in the afternoon at the Royal Albert Hall. Alfie Bow, Gregory Porter, Cynthia Eviro, Jack Savoretti and Alexandra Burke. And of course, loads of military musicians, service personell, choristers and a slack handful old fogies like me. Meal in a pub afterwards and then back to our hotel room where we saw the whole thing again on the TV!
    Art bit - last of my pictures for this year’s remembrance - inks on rice paper. Have a wonderful Sunday - wonder where the koffy is?

    Good happy Remembrance Sunday Morening Ladies And Gentlemen.

    An unsurprising blood splattered 6.6 this morning.

    I choose to wear a poppy in honour of those who gave their lives that I can choose whether to wear a poppy or not.
    Here in Tilehurst Towers the idiot box will switched on to watch the Cenotaph parade.
    Have a great day all. @gennepher I like the solutions you have and are applying to dog problems.
    Have a great day all and stay safe, stay well and stay apart.

    No FBG totally forgot because I was concentrating on weight.
    The garden is looking terrible. We are losing the battle with the moles - cheeky blighters are not only avoiding the traps, they are burying them in molehills. Grrr.
    Really need to get out there and do something, but now so many tasks it's hard to decide where to start.
    Have been indulging in misery and laziness for far too long. Someone please apply the recommended remedy.

    Oh dear @SlimLizzy
    Those moles are a menace...
    They (whoever they are) say do the easiest job first, and then the other jobs get easier and you can tackle the hard ones (but all my energy is spent by then).
    In consequence, I dive into the hardest job possible and attack it with all I have. Then it can only get easier...possibly!

    The sun is out here today, so I feel positive. I hope the sun is out for you.

    Good that your processor has been fixed @gennepher - but not so good that it gives you a headache and that you can now hear all the noise your neighbours are making .

    5.8 this morning. We are looking after my sister's dog as she is off to attend the Thursford Christmas spectacular today.

    The first hour was chaos as the dogs were really excited but they have settled down now and are playing quietly.

    Just to show the scale of the mole problem, each of the molehills will fill a five litre paint bucket.
    The colourful little trees in the background are some we planted about three years ago and now starting to look really good 20211114_123626.jpg

    Thanks @Krystyna23040
    I will probably only wear it when I need/want to wear it. It will be banished to its dry box otherwise...

    I have a clay soil @SlimLizzy

    When I first moved here I would take a bucket to a local field which was full of molehills, and put the soil from the molehills in my bucket each time I took my dog for a walk. J would carry the bucket, it was his idea! So, I am aware of the volume of the molehill displacement problem. But my clay soil is now very good soil...it took a few months of walks to get that all good soil I needed.

    But that doesn't help you.
    I think I would despair if that were my problem.

    I know people used to employ a mole catcher, but I hated seeing the dead moles strung up on a fence (as a warning to moles?).

    What do other people in France do with this molehill problem?
