You can easily smell them from half a mile away if the wind isn't kind to you. They have quite an interesting history


Snowdonia seems to have a few populations, there are similar goats I've seen at the top of Tryfan and we saw some very impressive different ones, with the biggest handlebars I've seen on a goat, wandering around the Dinorwic quarry.

I was in Trang province down southern Thailand for a vacation. We went to the restaurant with sea view this afternoon, these Cryptocoryne ciliata is also beside the place. Some plant are over 40 cm tall!
I managed to collect some of it, although I got strange look from every people inside the place :crazy:

I came across this outdoor, upside down, jade plant, it was hanging outside what was a pottery shop where they made and sold the upside down plant pots.
The pottery closed 15 years ago so I guess this plant has remained unattended for that long!

That is going to smell in a day or so!
Such strange looking creatures, I cant say I have ever seen one washed up on the beach but they are quite common in the sea.
Most are pretty small but I have seen a few huge ones, I am not sure how it stands with fishing records nowadays as at one time they were not considered catchable due to their diet but somebody caught a 150lb one on a rod last year!

We will soon be holding the annual stage rally, it is a little controversial to have super fast and loud cars hurtling though our tiny county lanes but, we love the once a year two day event.
Anyway, as usual the rumours start and the speculating begins around and about now, as every interested person wants to know where the stages will be, so this morning we were out walking looking for potential spectator spots.

Along our route we came across a few intersting features like a large Turkey oak showing why they are so
