The Blog’s erstwhile gardening and rural affairs correspondent SILAS SILAGE is back from wherever he has been lurking. Although he has not written for the Blog since 2011, he has been sniffing around the media scene, and recently surfaced on the Sherborne/Yeovil community radio station Abbey 104 FM.
He persuaded their star presenter Cat Paterson to accompany him on an all-night badger watch on the Bank Holiday Monday. Armed with just a microphone, she tiptoed into the woods with Silas. . . . .

How can we get these guys over for the next karaoke session at the Half Moon? An amazing rendition. Earphones on and turn up the volume.
Blackmore Vale’s two conservative Councillors William Wallace and Tim Inglefield have been re-elected with increased majorities.
There is now no overall majority at the previously Lib Dem-led South Somerset District Council.
The Lib Dems have lost two seats and now have 29. Conservatives gained three seats and have 28. Independents lost one seat and now have three.
Two sitting Tory Councillors failed to submit their papers in time, denying them full control of the Council. Piss ups and breweries spring to mind.
In neighbouring Wincanton, Conservatives Colin Winder and Nick Colbert were both elected. Lib Dem deputy leader Tim Carroll failed to gain a seat.
Lucy Wallace, William’s wife, was unlucky down the road in Milborne Port. She lost by ONE VOTE after 3 recounts to Sarah Dyke-Brache, a Lib Dem.
An outstanding video, essential for all students of life, history, everything.

We can only speculate why this episode was never shown!
You may have seen the recent TV programme “The secret lives of dogs”.
No problem with our dogs, clearly some of the most intelligent on the planet.
Who knows what they’ll come up with if we leave them alone for long enough?
The technical name for this is a Rube Goldberg Machine, named after the American cartoonist. More. . .
