    Weymouth, Dorset tonight? Anywhere 'free' - pub parking ?

    If anyone happens to be on Facebook there is a group called Campingpubs. Just name a place and you will get a list of suggestions.

    ALCOHOL ... how much do you imbibe?

    We were in the same position 41 years ago. He passed away at a day old. My mum, a devout Christian told me after that she had prayed for him. If he was ok he would survive, but that if he was to have severe health problems he would not.

    Introduced Signaller Crayfish

    Just drop into boiling water as you would a lobster th hen cook for a few minutes til they turn pink. Bodies are very small and hard to get into, can't just peel like prawns, claws are ok. I just turn them into a prawn cocktail.

    After Koblenz?

    If you're heading through the Ardennes Bouillon is a lovely town in a loop of the River Semois. It has a mediaeval castle and a free Aire next to the tennis courts.

    Ferry or Train

    No dog and always take the tunnel. But some years ago travelling back from Caen with a dog the vet gave me a mild sedative for her and she slept all the way.

    Ours has always been just 'the van' but this one I've named 'The Yellow Peril'. Never know what she's going to do next!!
