Most of us like to get out and about in the countryside, so I thought that this link would make for useful, if not essential reading.

Although the article refers to Lyme Disease in North America, I'm sure its also here in the UK too.

Is that your only outlet?

The last midge repellent  we tried was Smidge. Most work ok for me but I'm still trying to find one that works for Himself.

They have a cult following on BcUK, BB, ROF and SotP

Thank you - arrived safe and sound.

The package triggered the age old tradition of looking at the delivery and trying to figure out what the bloomin' 'eck it is instead of just opening it  

I also found and liked your FB page  

Oh yeah.... and it stinks!
