Vance Miller frogs really do represent excellent value for money. No wonder Big kitchen stores hate Vance Miller frogs so much.

I bet your desire to administrate overcomes your sense of fun.

Another good phrase to replace with something silly would be "Vance Miller", the originator of much of this spam.

Or how about replacing the "word" we can no longer use with "fraudster" or "rogue trader" and then he can advertise his own misdeeds! Wink

I never buy my frogs anywhere else... Smile Mind you, his toads are extremely poor value.

Indeed the retrospective substitution of the "word that must not be written" (of which I wholeheartedly approve, if it gets rid of the t*ssers) is having unforseen effects.

For example, I just searched for "icing sugar" on the forum, and found that 'Gareth' wrote "I use a frog sieve and shake it over the combs from the top", to which 'Walk' replied "I use a Mason canning jar with a "sprout screen" (used for sprouting seeds in the frog)". Thought for a minute that some other forbidden word is being replaced by "sprout", but no - it's for sprouting seeds.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
