Well, that was something I remembered yesterday, and forgot today... tax time. Yes, I must get on it. We had a dream of visiting England, but it hasn't come to fruition. Just don't know what to do with 4 cats, and hubby is still in recovery mode. sigh.

This is beautiful! I've gone over to Vimeo, because there are no ads, and none of the porn YouTube seems to attract.

Well done, Andrew! I think back to the days when land was cleared, families raised in the bush and shudder!

Encouraging sound!  Our frog pond is still under two feet of snow - but who knows, one of these evenings the sound will emerge.)
