Thread: Charity Mass Build - In Build Chat Thread

Has everyone finished their Webbits? I am going very slowly with mine. I've just got the power train in and working and I have just got some colour on the fin. Just got the snakes to play with and with fat fingers and shaky hands like mine it ought to be hilarious. Looking at my build I think I'm going to need a pound of church roof to get the CoG right. LOL Never mind it will be ready for Greenacres, flying or not. Cheers

Thanks Terence absolute magic. I love this piece and have never seen Kraftwerk actually doing it on stage. Great.

Congrats to you and mrs DF.
Hopefully Mrs DF will soon recover from such a hard day or two & little DF will start exploring this strange new world ! Then your work will REALLY start LOL
All of a sudden, being 50 & having a 25yr old son doesn't seem quite so tough

Being 70 with the youngest at 29 and still at home does.

Wonderfully true Terence. It's a pity we didn't have the green thing back then. LOL

Hiya all. With Tony talking about second broods, is there an ornithologist amongst us? I want to know if there's a chance the Great Tits who nested in my box will come back for a second go. I don't want to go cleaning the box out if so. Cheers

Lovely story about the song thrush. They seem to be getting very low in numbers - can't remember when I last saw or heard one.

We've got one, just turned up last week. I guess he's only a young'un 'cos he don't half take chances on the lawn. There are a lot of cats around here. First we've seen for years so it's nice to have him here for a bit. Cheers

Talk about coincidences Myron, I was just reading your post and I looked out of the window in time to see a woodpecker shinning up the willow tree to get to the nut dispenser. We haven't seen a woodpecker around here for yonks so perhaps this may be the start of a long relationship. Cheers mate.

They found a journal Bin Laden had been keeping in his compound… his last entry was "I'd better go, someone's at the door..."

Many years ago i was walking along Poole Quay near where i live, it was late evening, very cold and as i passed a slipway i noticed the body of a seagull bobbing in the small surf.
I walked over to see if it was still alive, and it was...barely...
I took it home, kept it warm and quiet for the night hoping for the best, and sure enough the next morning he was flapping about really lively, and somehow a little friendly i suppose, he didn't bite or panic and i even have a pic somewhere of him sat on my shoulder.
Anyway i took him back to where i found him, gave him a little kiss on the head and he was away, you would not have thought it was the same bird.
Can only assume he had somehow got too cold, well glad i found him.
That gave me a good feeling!
Now.......... um........... i seem to have made myself seem a little sensitive...hmm..... um........

Well done DF, a man after my own heart. If they can't help themselves it's up to us. Cheers mate.

Hiya all. Can't keep up with the little blighter's down here, we have to fill the bird table five or six times a day and still it's empty by evening. I've got four seed dispensers around the garden as well, all empty now as I look out of the window. I give 'em their breakfasts early in the morning before going to Bath. By the way, if any of you manage to get to Bath make sure you come and see me. I've got a stall selling Fair Trade Goods, I am at the top of Union Street at the junction with Upper Borough Walls. Cheers.

Am I on twitter? Thought it was ... no, forget it!

Hiya all. I just couldn't resist telling you about this. I made my first bird box this year and put it in a tree outside my front window. Within 2 weeks a pair of Great Tits took up residence. We watched them going backwards and forwards for a few weeks and yesterday it all paid off. The parents enticed the little ones out of the box and there were 6 of 'em lined up on the branch and one by one they took off. Good luck to them. They almost feel part of the family. Cheers

Hi mate, I don't want you to panic, but I'm texting you from the casualty. Turns out the new Dyson Ball cleaner isn't what I thought it was.

What's the difference between Iron Man and Iron Woman? One's a superhero and the other is an instruction.
