The Zimbabwe special of Top Gear was really enjoyable and Richard was a big part of its success. I didn't realize he was doing a nature show. That video was quite interesting, thanks!

Ahh, the show is made for the BBC and only 3 episodes were made.

Thanks, Dave. I wasn't aware of the other stuff he does.

I see Netflix has a couple of the shows in their line-up/Save mode. After reading the Zimbabwe run it looks pretty entertaining to me! Netflix shows something similar going through Canada and points north.

Yeh the wonders of it all...?

Makes you think of the thought "just because you can't see something doesn't mean it doesn't exist"...eh? One day we'll be able to witness lots more things that are "invisible".

Happy weekend!

Ahah! So now the "poop lovers" (composters?) are coming out! Smiling

Glad to share and educate, Margaret!

Now will you get down off that roof! I'm afraid of heights and your avatar pic scares me! Don't you know you're gonna get a nose bleed being that high up!

It's ok Shoe, I like climbing and that's just a low roof over a patio, I had to prune the willow branches that were laying on top of it, earlier I had climbed on the roof of my garden shed to get at those low branches and you should see me when I climb the crab apple trees to prune them in the spring.

*thunk.... too high off the ground for me.

Willow branches, eh? Guess you better pull some to make some rooting tea with. Looks like you have a gold mine of them there.

Top notch Shoe! I love learning things like that. Unfortunately I don't believe I'll be passing that info. on to many people. When I launch into things like that people's eyes tend to glaze over at my "trivia" which I call amazing & interesting tidbits but they just roll their eyes & say, "here she goes again". Blinking
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I shared the video with my son and he said, "Wow, that was very cool indeed", and he doesn't even like gardening, but he likes science. Smiling

Great, Margaret. Maybe now he'll be doing science experiments in your garden. Hmmm...beware? Confused

flaflwrgrl/Ann, I know what you mean...I've caused a lot of folks' eyes to glaze over,too, usually my daughter's when I happen to preface something with "Why that reminds me of the time I weren't no bigger than a Popsicle stick and...". I guess she knew not to believe, or barely believe, what was coming....

But ya see, with this video you have bona fide evidence of what you're saying is true, eh? Guess it's the adage "proof is in the pudding" (then again, maybe this particular topic is not the place to use such a descriptive saying, eh?)

Ya know I was thinking (scary... I know), but as I walk out in the pasture and I tiptoe thru the horse manure and cow poo... if I feel a little tiny splat... well you get the picture!! Rolling on the floor laughing
