Okay I've read it. (And caught up on everyone else's posts too.) Ahaha, that rooster sounds like an absolute psychopath. I'm not a roosterologist, so I dunno why the bird is behaving like he is, but it does sound like he'd be a lot safer and quieter as part of a quality chicken stew or fried chicken. When I used to live in London (the north western suburbs), one of our neighbours kept hens and a rooster. I'd hear it crowing occasionally. Sadly one night a fox got into their enclosure and killed them all - the neighbours had to dig the fence much deeper next time. Anyway, if the situation gets bad enough, I can always ship over a fox from London to you... >.>
Don't see much wildlife where I am now, but occasionally driving home at night I will see a badger or muntjac (small deer). They are cute.
CC - The weather is mixed! We had a humid day yesterday followed by a thunderstorm. I've really changed regarding weather in the last few years. Used to enjoy winter and dislike summer, but now it's the other way round - I cannot wait for the interminable winter to end. It never gets seriously cold in the UK, but it's damp cold which really gets into your bones after a while. Plus my flat seems to have magical cold-retaining properties, whereby it will cling onto cold for weeks and lose heat about
5 minutes after the temperature has dropped outside. On top of that, the price of energy has risen drastically and is set to rise again in October: it's worrying. I'm lucky to have savings which many people don't have, but I feel like price rises and inflation is gonna eat away at them over the next few years. If ever I move (which I would really like to), I will definitely look for a naturally warmer flat. Sorry, all you asked was how was the weather, and I went on another lengthy spiel :-/
Anyway you've reminded me, I must book my second booster. I had Covid over Christmas so hopefully antibodies are still protecting me to some extent. Urgh, I just don't even want to think about
Covid anymore tbh. I wish it would just go away for good :/
PS: Thank you everyone for enquiring after me. It doesn't solve anything but it does make me feel a tiny bit better. On Reddit (which iPoop mentioned), there is no community at all. I go there to scroll mindlessly; because it's so active, there's always another dumb post to read. But I never learn anyone's names, never get any sense of who anyone is as a person, the way you used to be able to on forums if you spent enough time on them. I really, really miss small communities like this one. In fact it's a testament to HW that it's survived at all; none of the other forums I used to be active on has.
