A birch of some sort looking like this.
The whole height of the tree was peeling and the trunk did look amazing, though the pics were taken with my phone and really do not do it any justice.
Another side to the beauty of nature.

Vivus wants to remove the negative stigma from short-term loans.
To disassociate from the negative press and connotations around this type of loan.
Vivus are a ‘clean slate’ company who is making a ‘virtue out of doing this properly’.
Vivus DON’T want customers to get into debt, but only to help them out of a short term difficulty.
Vivus tell us; If customer misses agreed payment date, they have 5 days to make the repayment before any late charges or additional interest is applied. If payment is not received after 5 days, a late payment fee of £12 is charged and interest is added on a daily basis, from the due date until payment is received. Late interest is at the same rate as the loan (i.e. 0.4% per day for the first loan and 0.8% per day for subsequent loans.)They also tell us;
This is a rate capped product, which means that you cannot be required to pay more than 0.8% interest per day on the capital balance outstanding and more than twice the amount you borrow in total. For example, if you borrow £100 you cannot be required to repay more than £200 in capital, interest and charges
Flogas recently spoke to 910 Brits and found that 85% of people have, at some point, considered moving away from the city to live “off-grid.”
25% of people are confident of their ability to self-sustain, ranking a local shop as a low priority when living in isolation.I do not feel I could self sustain, I personally could not kill and gut a living creature. and I know that growing food so far North would be nearly impossible.
80% of respondents think that living in a remote area would suit them.One of the things I missed when I moved here I have to say was my mains gas, quick convenient efficient cost effective central heating. But having been here for over three years now then I have got use to not having it. My fuel bills are sky high, I know some of the villagers have alternatives like oil and bottled gas but that means changing over the whole heating system.
Gas is a high priority for 64% of people
|climb to the top for a phone signal.|
Almost half of respondents would miss their smartphone within a week!
Running water was voted as the most important service, followed closely by gas and electricityI have to agree not having running water is a nuisance. When we lived on the farm a number of years ago we often use to get a loss of supply just because of where we were. Not the first time I have hooked the hosepipe up to a none sterile supply in the barn to fill the bath to use to flush the toilet. It is the one service I would most hate to be without. No way for a wash, to cook, to put on your washing machine, or dishwasher, Yes you can drink bottled water but it is difficult to use an electric shower with it. Coal, logs and generators as well as bottle gas would substitute for mains gas and electricity.
An impressive 77% of people are confident of their abilities to change a gas canister.
