What do Preseli (Pembrokeshire) and Haltemprice and Howden have in common?

I live in South Cave, a village within the Haltemprice and Howdenshire constituency. I've been on holiday to Pembrokeshire (and a really beautiful area it is!) However, my latest contact with Preseli has been to pair up with a voter from there named Liz.
There are two others in this locality who have also paired up with two other members from Preseli.
In the general election in 2005 the results in Preseli were:
Conservatives 37%
Labour 35%
Lib dem 13%
In the general election in H&H, the results were:
Conservatives 47%
Lib dems 36%
Labour 13%
If I want to vote labour, it makes no sense in H&H, however in Preseli it makes far more sense.
And if Liz in Preseli wants to vote LIb dem it makes no sense, but in H&H it makes more sense.
So quite simply we both joined the facebook group Voting Buddies and agreed to swap our votes.
There are lots of people waiting for swaps. Tactical voting makes a lot of sense.
Don't waste your vote!

Red Kite

Coming back from Beverley this morning, I was lucky to see one of the redkites. They are breath taking as they glide with the sun catching their wings.

The Jerry Springer show ~ In my garden!

Hello and welcome, todays show is going to focus on these two blackbirds who we shall call Peter and Paul. You may remember that they featured on yesterdays show because of their fighting.
Don't remeber ... well lets just remind our selves.
So we have two male blackbirds squarking and sqabbling and in flight fighting. Could it be over a lady bird (a feathered one rather than the red and black variety!).
Well closer inspection of the pair has revealed the real reason.Awwww isn't he/she cute. Very tiny, very fluffy and one of a pair. Now the other one is quite happily hopping around the garden after mum. chirping for food and being rewarded by her with tastey morsels of catterpiller, worms and other delicious (if you are a bird) treats.
Now the dilema is that both male blackbirds think they are the dad of this cutie pie. Mum is saying nothing!

Everytime one of the males gets some food in his beak and attempts to approach cutie pie, the other one becomes all defensive and squarks and flies at him.
Poor little cutie pie can't tell where his next meal is coming from. He's chiruping in the most pityful way.

How on earth these two males both think they are the dad, I do not know. I just hope cutiepie gets some grub.

These photos were taken yesterday and I'm glad to report that this morning he is hopping around, but still being fathered by two dads. DNA test required!

There are also a pair of earrings to match.

Crafts Juice Tuesday ~ An eclectic mix

Beautiful muted colours have been combined to create this perfect little brooch. Designed and created by Evabdesigns.

I really love Tallulahblue's wonderful postcards of her original painting.

I don't think you could get more girly than this canvas wall art by Silent Theatre. Pink, glitter and satin bows ... very pink and very pretty

Wonderful little chicken purse created by Sockysworld. The fabric is really simple but really cute.
