    Great thing about bleach from an eco point of view is it breaks down and therefore doesn't do long term damage like salt/vinegar mixes do.

    Not convinced can you show evidence for this idea its eco friendly the weeds will not agree salt and vinegar are natural products, bleach aint

    Wonder what the snails worms etc think as they burn to death
  2. The first prerogative of any government is to protect its people I suggest that means supporting a a viable arm force at all times

    If in need all andy pandy poofdeywoofeders need to enroll to support its nation

    It will be good to identify individuals who are prepared to act in different rolls aggressive or supportive or even non participants for future national military force
  3. Its a shame the forum is going it was once great,back in 2008 I started a thread "Found in the garden" as basquesteve, Chris helped a lot it and ran for 140 pages over the years but due to photo bucket pulling the plug me giving the schoolboy formula for gunpowder and having a great argument till 5 in the morning re Hydrangeas was banned

    PS The Aude is crap now back in the Bearn

  4. Good luck

    But I disagree

    "Biggest unrealistic expectation was the Winter weather, which I found even on the Med much wetter and colder than expected. So if avoiding Winter heating bills is an objective, France is not the place! "

    Here in the Aude it never rains

    "Last but not least France has got expensive, especially in the south,"

    Dead cheap here

    I have lived in France 21 years Correze , Pays Basque Aude what a dump and now moving back to the Bearn It's madness returning to the UK

  5. It seems two view points are raised

    I would welcome an organ in need and offer my own

    If that offends you and you do not wish to accept others donations to extend your life/quality so what

    If your car or washing machine breaks down do you not happily replace the broken part or go for rebirth

    Why is this for you so great issue

    Be careful, they may be Asian Hornets (frelons asiatique) and they have a nasty temper if you pîss them off.

    Good luck with the annoying creatures, do they have a useful purpose?...

    My 21 years of knowing Asian Hornets are they are not hot tempered and probably less aggressive than the European species and they do not fly at night

    As for a purpose yes many garden pests are whipped away and eaten

    Paper Wasps are the worst
  7. HI

    Thats a hard one Balsa is a hardwood and easy to stick a pin in so density and hardness do not figure

    Softwoods are pines /conifers, perhaps a good sniff will help

    I can recognize most wood by colour and grain but it needs hands on to tell
  8. Hi

    I would leave them alone unless you keep Bees after many years they have never threatened me as for being allergic the wasp intends to hurt you and what ever pain loss off life it causes is in its favour to leave it be
  9. You can go to any optician you wish, who can then supply the correct glasses, as I have had (800 Euros)

    The ophthalmologist after a long wait checks your eyes medically and the prescription every 2/3 years, its not cheap but great to find alls OK
