WILDLIFE.
God begot living things from water,
Some of them creep, others crawl,
and there are some who crouch in a ditch. QURAN, SURA XX1V, verse 45.

Englands biodiversity is not easily compared to that of other nation's - and the country side is in no way a shade of Earl Gray - and the original ditchmonkey is stepping in to preserve & point out stuff!! - Under a gore tex sheet and some branches deep in the woods the (ODM) is not only going along with the current trend in housing experiment's but also doing a great job in raising money for the woodland trust ( a uk woodland conservation charity). PLEASE click on DITCHmOnkey (on this site) to read his daily blog and donate to his great effort - i would like to recommend a book to Hugh (ODM) - a definitive work on an environmentally sound approach to a lost art! 'How to Shit in the Woods' by Kathleen Mayer - available from CAT also a click away on this site . Good luck my friend -

THE DESTRUCTION OF SENNACHERIB
BY LORD BYRON - photograph A Stenning

The ASSyrian came down like thr wolf on the fold, And his cohorts were gleaming in purple a& goLd,
And the sheen of their spears was like STARS On tHe sea,
When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee.
Like thr leaves of the forest when Summer is green,
That hoSt with their banners at sunset were seen;
LIKE the leaves of the forest when Autumn hath blown,
tHAT the host on the morrow lay withered & strown.

FOr the angel' of Death spread his wings on the blast,
And breathed in the face of the FOE as he pass'd,
And the eyes of the sleepers WaX'd deadlY and chill,
AND their hearts but once heaved, and forEVER grew still !
And there lay the steed with his nostril all wide,
But through it there roll'd nOt thr BREATH of his pride,
And foam of his 'GASPING' - lay white on the turf,
And cold as the spray on thr rock - beating surf.

And their lay the rider distorted and pale,
With dew on his brow, aNd rust in his mail;
AND THE TENTS WERE all silent, the banners alone,
ThR lances unlifted , the trUmpets unblown.

AND the widows of Ashur are loud in their wail,
And the idols are broke in the temple of BAAL;
And the might of the Gentile,
Unsmote BY thr swoRd ,
Hath melted like snow in the glAnce of thr lOrd.

A beautiful poem by John Betjeman to start Autumn.

COUNTY BY JOHN BETJEMAN

God save me from the POrkers,
God saVe me from their sons,
Their noisy tweedy sisters
who follow with their GuNS,
tHE Old and scheming mother,
Their futures that she plann'd,
ThE Ghastly younger brother
Who married into land.

Their shots along the vally
Draw blood out of the sky,
The wounded pheasants rally
As hobNAILED boots go by.
Where once rabbit scampered
thE Waiting copse is still
As porker fat and pampered
comes puffing up the hIll.

A 'left a right' ! well done sir !
They're falling in the road;
And here's your other GUN sir"
Don't talk your here to load."
GOD SAVE ME FROM THE PORKERS, THE PATHOS OF THEIR LIVES, THE STRaNGE EXAMPLE THAT THEY SET - To new rich farmers'wives.- god bless JOHN BETJEMAN.

FOUR 9.30 THURSDAY'S
- AND THINK OF THEM AS COUNTY- COUNTY IS WHAT THEY ARE.

Andrew is away -& has decided in his bohemianism to never speak to a porker again ! but he will in his cantankerous/clandestine way 'take the piss out of' and run the gauntlet with any porker who comes near his landS ! EQUINOX/EQUINOX

Smell the sMoke & nerVOUSNEss of a HUNTERs MooN - it's delicate flavour, the Sussex lambs have grown, like passing gHosts & tapestry a Bronze and Gold Gust in Jacobs face.
