I hear the venue for this year's OggCamp 19/20 October is decided. It's the Pendulum Hotel https://www.pendulumhotel.co.uk
@paul That's cats for you! 😉
@paul Too true. I like my cat to be in at night because she's small and gets picked on by the big cats, so I trained her to come back when I blow a dog whistle. I also give her treats at 9pm daily and she knows what time it is and is usually there waiting. The whole thing works amazingly well!
@paul I have avoided the cat flap so far and am so glad I've done so! 😃
@paul Last year I'd either find bits of birds and mice on the back doorstep, or if I was not alert enough, somewhere inside the house - the front doormat was a favourite place. One time my daughter and I had fun catching a live mouse dropped in the living room too. So many places to hide!
@paul Found our cat confronting a wood pigeon a few weeks ago. They both looked shocked! I checked the pigeon and it seemed unhurt and flew off when I let it go.
@paul Not surprised. Chickens can be scary!
@clacke One of my recent triumphs after 9 years of retirement was to get the UK tax people to acknowledge that I no longer need to fill in the annual form. My work and state pensions are both taxed at source, so what more do they need?
@Luke Damn! You saw through my cunning ruse! 😉
@beni That was my thought...
@beni Gotta use those Raspberry Pis for something!
@beni Shoot the sparrows for the hawk as he homes in on them?
