Been Worried About the Squirrel

We have been worried about the squirrel. He /she has been a frequent visitor in autumn, but not so far this year. Yesterday we were able to harvest several kilos of walnuts and we were wondering if the squirrel had come to a sticky end, because there were so may nuts left. Great news! I have just seen him / her bouncing between the walnut tree and the hydrangeas…

Bit of a strange start to the day. My friend’s discovery just got published and I awoke to find a link to his article. A bit of cutting-edge science before breakfast. From what I can see online, the news is spreading quite fast. A bit odd to read a high technology article and then go into the sleepy village to the Tabac. That sense of different worlds continues.

I am waiting to hear from the intellectual property office as to when my patent application will be published, it should be some time around now…

This afternoon, we will rack up the plumb and peach wines…It is an indoors days thanks to the rain.

I am so happy that the squirrel is back and in good health!!
