    Being amused by a work colleague who now regrets getting her latest gadget, after her African Grey parrot has learned to tell Alexa to play "Classic Rock" at 4 in the morning :laugh:

    Perhaps I should've types bicycles. It's not about old motorbikes as cool as they are.

    Thanks, Don't know about paint, I didn't it use it on the frame only on the metalwork. I think @Drago knows about using it on piantwork.

    And suitably armed with a chainsaw... Spent the morning cutting down the standard greengage that Storm Erik wrecked while passing through.

    That was bloomin' hard work - especially extracting the bit that was left dangling in a neighbouring apple tree.

    Just had lunch: a crusty roll, some camembert, smoked turkey and the last of the lox. Plus some grapes, a tangerine and two :cuppa:

    Now settling down to catch up with the paperwork I should have done over the weekend but had an attack of the CBA instead...

    It's very spring-like here chez Casa Reynard. The snowdrops in the wood look a right treat in the sunshine. Winter aconites are just about done flowering now, but here and there the odd daff is looking like an eager beaver.

    If this mild weather persists, then another couple of weeks should see the blackthorn and cherry plums starting to come out in blossom.
