Chickenlady I have thought of moving to New brunswick. I qualify on their points system :wink: I think Canada's landscape is gorgeous too. Martin we go globe trotting to see other places.

Hmmm... maybe it is as bad as the news makes out then. New Zealand is great and a wonderful place to live and an excellent place to raise a family. No matter where I went in the world I would always come back here eventually. This is going to sound silly but I've always wanted to see the world and p...

DD and I are going on holiday on monday till friday. We're carpooling there and back. We were going to bus but I think carpooling will be more child friendly because we can stop at playgrounds along the way so she can have a run around and release some energy lol. Our accomodation is at a backpacker...

Thankfully I live on a quiet street in a small town so I can leave my windows open slightly 24/7. There's mint growing wild outside my laundry and a 1/4 acre 'paddock' beside my house that has long grass and currently a horse but usually sheep. I'm thinking of planting daphne way down the back and l...

completely wacky idea but you know how some places have employee of the week/month maybe they could have that for the most eco aware employee. Throw in a small perk or bonus and staff might be falling over themselves to green up.

Plus the business might get publicity for its initiative :wink:

Here in New Zealand they've started selling individually (plastic) wrapped prunes! Of course it's the perfect answer to the fact that we're running out of landfill space and our native birds are choking on rubbish or starving to death because their insides are blocked up with rubbish. And humans bei...

I'm not entirely sure if she's sitting. I'm out of the house much of the day when I check on them she's standing on the side of the nest or arranging the material. When she feeds the other one stands on the side of the nest. I've ordered a proper nesting pan for her because I don't think the mortar ...
