    Water %

    Couch to 5 K

    Rollerskiing is much more joint friendly and so much more fun than boring running. I can happily set off from home and ski 5k. My knees wouldn't bear the run Cazza

    Arrived home from work yesterday to find a pile of papers posted through the door detailing exactly what to do re bird flu. I'm in the 10 k zone for the latest outbreak in Suffolk. Everyone here is taking this very seriously. Cazza

    Wire Worms

    That's my experience over the years. I use spuds as the first years crop to clean out the wireworms when I dig up grass for new veg areas. Cazza
