OK Sinatra fans: Frank recorded a number with the US Marines Band that was aired on Benny Green's radio programme back in the nineties. It might have been "I've got you under my skin" . Anyone know if this has this been released and if can I buy it?

If the eucalyptus trees are within 30 to 40 feet from your house foundations you have a serious problem from their root systems. Plus they suck water from the ground at such a rate that subsidence is a likely and expensive result (they are great for helping drain swampy land though). Nice trees but only at the very far end of a long garden.

I suppose it depends on the duration of their flight. Cannot see Canada Geese thinking "Whoops, better land near a bush" when they are cruising just to spare observers upturned stares.
Down here in Brighton however it seems to be an activity strictly reserved for seagulls.
Interesting snippet: in 1905 there were only 35 pairs of herring gulls in the UK. What happened?

In Norway the nicked duvet syndrome never arises. Simple solution used there is also a highly practical one - and the norwegians know a thing or two about cold nights - The answer is to avoid double duvets - go for two singles instead. This way each can choose the tog rating (warmth) they individually prefer. And when turning over, there is none of the double-duvet problem. Also makes putting duvet covers on less of a sumo wrestling match.

There's a brillaint Chinese shoemaker in Kowloon called Lee Kee.
His sign advertising 'Lee Kee Boots' doesn't seem to have hurt his trade. Always made me smile though.
