Went to Bolton Market this morning to buy a month's supply of meat and bones for the dogs. I got them pigs heart, pigs ribs, pigs ears, pork belly, some rabbits and some beef hearts. Here's a video of Brett and Molly eating a pigs ear each after I got back. I couldn'r get Sam as he took his to the top of the stairs.

Wilderswood to Winter Hill
Sunshine and showers is what the weather lady said, sunshine and horizontal hailstones is what we got on this afternoon's VERY short walk from Wilderswood up onto Winter Hill then over to Holdens Plantation before scuttling back to the car. Less than two miles, and some of the 1hr 24min was spent trying to shelter from the worst of the hail before beating a bedraggled retreat to warmer places (ie: my car and then home ;-).

Another Walk on Darwen Moor
Well that was an interesting 5 miles; found two paths I hadn't been on before and got a liberal helping of transient hypoglycemia (that's temporary low blood sugar for the non-technically minded - or hunger knock aka "bonk" for the cyling fraternity) with two miles still to get back to the car. At one point I even thought I was in the wrong woods (turns out I was just on the wrong path), fortunately it passed off after about 10min but it made for interesting navigation through Roddlesworth Woods. And the moral of the story is: take some emergency food with me.
