This week, I find that I can respond, which is great. ๐Ÿ˜Š My first thought was that I had been meaning to say that studying the mechanics of combustion machines and stocking-up on spare parts might be an option. My dad was always repeating the scout motto 'Be prepared' to me !! Also, right now, isn't there someone else who could repair it?

I think a few of us are late with planting this year. Here in the Haute Loire we seem to have gone straight from it being too cold to put the seedlings into cold frames to it being too hot to leave them in there. I'm tearing my hair out. I have quite a few shrivelled up gonnas.

My pond is full of wildlife. Have you got one? I have dragons and damsels everywhere..... Still waiting for a frog!m !

I'd love to attend the 'do' in August but that's complicated and I don't really know how I could contribute. There are so many more clever people out there. I'm a good digger.

Lol! Have a great week Ben and profite bien du beau temps ! Sara Dawn

Yay for not screwing up the comments options this week!

I have spark plugs and tools and things. I am trying to acquire air and oil filters. We're getting there. Of course, I need a drive belt for the lawnmower now. I shall order a few :) The Monster (as we will now call him) reckons Mr Rotovator needs a new carburettor. I am of the opinion that he is a charlatan and nothing ever needs a new carburettor.

The "do" will be the best success it can be if a wide variety of people come. You would be a perfect addition to the crowd! I don't want to fill it with great intellectuals from ivory towers. I want people who know what it is like to be a human.

And, awesomely, I have been listening to Le Temps et Bon by Isabelle Pierre a lot lately. It gives me hope :)

I can also recommend some great podcasts by the incredible Jon Snow. Google 'Snowcast'. Mikaela Loach is a good one but they're all a splendid selection of guests.

Le temps est bon is hilarious! She's a psychopath who murders her two lovers in the YouTube video!

Thank you Jack. I really appreciate your support! Quite often the "energy" is nothing more than bull-headedness. :) Have a happy holiday day!
