    My Napoleonics

    I have to confess that this is one of my winter pastimes and it has had a resurgence this year. The fact that MrsG kept mentioning the numerous boxes of unpainted models in the attic etc and the largish collection of books on the Napoleonic Wars may have given a little impetus to my activity...

    Need Heliamphora Care Tips

    Yes, indeed, the one with the uncreative name has returned, with yet more questions. (I have sooooo many questions. :p) Okay, I'm planning on ordering a Heliamphora minor.

    Parables of the Sundew, 1873

    I came across this very interesting letter while researching Drosera that quite frankly makes me smile. It's a publication from 1873 which compares the attractive dew of the Sundew to the temptations of sin. Whether you be a religious man, or irreligious, it's still worth a read...
