You're right, of course.
Neither of us are stupid or blind.

It's just so frightening to look at what is going on. Again.

Staying calm is also hard for me, though it helps to have lush green plants on my porch and in my yard. Lots of color, and the hope of future blooms. All it takes is planting things at the right time and in the right place, with necessary watering, and (of course) plenty of rabbit-repellent. smiley - biggrin

Some of my neighbors excuse the local rabbits by saying that they need to eat, like the rest of us. Well, I don't think the rabbits are doing their jobs properly. If they were, there would not be so much clover to be weeded smiley - cross.

I've just looked up some info on yellow clover, and have found that it is a wood sorrel with oxalic acid in it. Rabbits can eat a little of it, but shouldn't overdo it. smiley - sadface

Every day I start with plans, but they often need to be amended as I go along. The fancy term for this is mid-course corrections. smiley - biggrin

smiley - biggrinsmiley - winkeyelife is like a straight line

I-------------------------------------I

but we always find obstacles along itsmiley - sadfaceanswers are :-

stop at 1st obstacle or at any others in front and just give in.
Go round them.
Go under them.
Go through them.
Go over them.
The rule is:- They may slow you down, but never let them stop you, defeat is NEVER an option!

Actually, deferral is better strategy than defeat. You can postpone the battles you would otherwise lose. Just pick battles that you have a chance of winning. Gradually move down the list. Some problems will go away by themselves over time.

It's good advice, and I'm not charging you for it....yet. smiley - evilgrin

I don't know about the fish aspect, but China leads the rest of the world in potato production, so those fish and chips shops will not lack for spuds.
