Thanks again Andrew for you comments, was nice to speak to you personally.
 
Can't believe that I haven't got the blog going properly
had a busy couple of months managing the site here at biblins and getting the bushcraft business up and running down here in Ross on Wye.
We delivered a couple of short sharp courses for some well known local schools just before breakup and they were very popular and now that Steve has finally agreed to join us permanently in the new year we will definately be planning more.  We already have repeat block bookings with two of the schools through September.
We also ran a short summer school camp in the early part of the summer holidays as a pilot and will definately be delivering school holiday courses again.
 
Steve, a very experienced youth worker, probation officer and good all round mountaineer has assisted in our delivery of outdoor programmes for the last ten years.  Out of love for the great outdoors and loyal support for my growing adventure business, Steve has been a great support.  He has eventually sucummed to pressure and, after some extra training supplied by myself and Dave Watson to further enhance his bushcraft skills complementing his considerable experience and well honed teaching skills, he will indeed be an asset.
 
I've completely lost track of the new flora that erupts in every corner.  Our old site in Saddleworth, now managed by Steve, has such a simple repeated range of flowers and so easy to learn.  The northern climate is the reason of course.  Down here the spring starts so much earlier and the summer lasts so much longer.
What I am determined to do is get to know the fungi.  I'm no expert and so stick to a few very simple and easy to recognise species, or at least those with a low risk of illness through misidentification.
My old standby in Saddleworth were a small clustering variety of puffball and ear fungus.  Both pretty unmistakable for anything else. if the puffball flesh isn't white and fresh smelling then its an earthball or something worse but either way will look or smell wrong.  I've never found anything else that looks like ear fungus.  Anyway, now we are at this end of the summer, with autumn looming, the trees here are already developing their autumn colours and some even shedding, its mushroom time and its already getting interesting.
We delivered a two day event only this weekend here in a new location here in the Forest of Dean at our new location and mushrooms were already to be seen.
 
I have made a promise that as from the first of September i'm going to know every fungi in and around that site and I know its going to be a tall order.
 
We see dear every day now and badgers at least every other day.  I've found loads of abandoned badger setts and an active latreen but not found an active sett yet, which is unusual for me.  Another promise for the new academic year.

In our tests, we found the HP Envy X2 to be the most sluggish of the three hybrids, primarily when it came to browsing the Web and viewing streaming video. So as far as performance is concerned, you can't go wrong with the ASUS or Samsung units.
