    Look at him go!
  2. No new screens, but I have been making some progress. Going slow these days due to studying AND working. Schools are currently closed over here, but I do have to provide my classes with online lessons. Which for some reason take more time to prepare then regular lessons... And uni is still going as well. Also with online sessions instead of lectures at the school itself. Even had an exam the other week, which I managed to pass in one go. Not a very high grade, but still, got that one in the pocket.

    Awesome pictures George!
  5. Looking very good, George! I like the big "finger" plants in this last screen.

    That thing crawling out of the sea, was it a crab? One of those crabs that collect all kinds of junk to make a sort of shell for themselves? Loving all the pics!

    The Garden

    That looks like rosemary there in the first picture. (on the left and right) Is it? Or rather, was it? If you like plants in your garden (which will also attract birds), may I suggest the "prairie" garden? You first plant grasses and plants, then put a 10cm thick layer of little lava stones (porous ones) around. Cats won't use it as a litterbox, plants grow like crazy, but seeds from weeds won't get through so it is low in maintenance. All it needs is a complete trim in later winter, when the bulb plants start to grow (snowdrops, daffodils, crocus) and show their leafs coming through the lava stones (if you put those in as well that is...) It's really lush!
  8. I hope he'll show himself if he's okay and now that his game has been released.
  9. Happy New Year to you as well! DJ-Full told people he has died... Has TC14 been in touch with Jon? Btw, DJ just asked me if this rumour has been confirmed. He thought you had taken up the project because of Jon passing away. But that is not the case I see.
  10. What happened to Jon?

    I meant at our coasts. Plenty of coastline here. Including the islands. Although the northern Wadden Islands wouldn't be suitable anyway. Very shallow around them, at least at their southern shores. Apart from the canals (right word?) used by ferries to go to and from the islands, you can often walk from one island to the next or to the mainland at low tide. Mudflat walking it is called in English I think. Not that you will manage to stay dry when doing so, and you risk losing your shoes if you are not careful, but there are places where you can walk. Well, wade...

    Learned something new today. I knew about the female-like appearance and becoming flightless but didn't know it was called that. I wonder if there's a Dutch word for it as well. Our ducks always looked dreadful when going through this phase. "Amputated" wings, only a couple of tail feathers left, shabby. One of the ducks we've had once started moulting in December, right when it started to freeze. Poor thing was shivering she we kept her inside for a while! She died the next summer. A duck going into eclipse in the middle of winter is not a good sign... something is not right then.

    Good thing she got taken there and that they managed to fix her wing. She would have died for sure otherwise.

    Ducks for the win! Coming out of eclipse? No idea. Our mallards just went through the moulting season and are looking mighty fine again. All ready for the winter with shiny new feathers. Could that have to do with it? With recovering after moulting?

    No wonder you thought he needed help. Such an odd pose. I also hope he'll make it. No gannets over here btw.
