I’ve seen well kept gardens on the television and on LiveLeak folks will upload something that has become known as a ‘Gardensay’ where they show off the fruits of their green fingered labours for the enjoyment of all (well, all who enjoy gardening I guess). I don’t watch them personally because my ideal garden would be concrete slabs as far as the eye can see, perhaps with the odd dandelion growing through the gaps here and there for eye candy.

Me? A broadcaster? Whut?

Funny really, of all the things I thought I’d like to have a crack at live broadcasting wasn’t really one of them.

Each of our dogs is either re-homed or rescued and we actually bought Flower from a breeder who had relentlessly bred her then decided to get rid once it was apparent she was all used up.

Well then

I know this has taken around six months to get to but here it is. I’ve messed around with other blog and CMS software but found my way back to WordPress which is probably quite predictable. I dare say over time (if anyone comes here) I will add functionality or break it by installing the wrong plugins, but I guess that’s just part of the charm.
