Fairy Nuff, Sen. Lots of schools may have banned the playing of conkers on the premises but that is not a law in general. Smoking has been banned in public. Dog fights are outlawed, although they still go on. I cannot wave my Willie about in public without being arrested :-) These are real bans brought about by the "snowflakes". Why is the Mail not winding up its readers about these?!?!

The point is, Sen, it has not been 'banned'. It is misinformation like that, often reported in the Daily Mail just to wind people up, that leads to the type of mass hysteria we see following headlines like "EU bans bent bananas", "Council cancels Christmas" or "Conkers are outlawed". I thought you, as an ex-teacher, would know better than to repeat media distortions.

Well in all my years as a school pupil, I never saw anyone injured. Nor as a teacher (but I retired many years ago). And the side table in every classroom was loaded with the pupils conkers-on-strings until playtime arrived. I often did 'playground duty' and even 'lunchtime duty' as a teacher, and quite enjoyed watching the conker challenges.
I suppose I must adapt to all these changes in the world today.

They are not banned, Sen. It is just schools and other organisations don't want to be held responsible for any injuries that occur. Sensibly, they have said that such games should not be played on their premises. Conkers, climbing trees, playing war (or doctors and nurses!) and many such activities are still played by many children in their own time and out of school premises.

Does it make me a snowflake for supporting the schools that try to mitigate risk? Well, if doing so saves the life or sight of one child or prevents teachers being attacked by angry parents, then, yes, I am.

Back to autumn. 4 degrees C here this morning and a hint of overnight frost. I got my cardie out last night!

I'm a bit worried about two little house-martins who are still zooming about above our houses. They should have joined the other twenty or so on their long journey back to tropical parts. They must leave or they will die, because the little flying insects are dwindling fast, and there will be nothing for them to eat.
On my journey out to Fakenham (supermarket run) I noticed that all the horse-chestnut trees along the route were in their autumn colours, with conkers dropping onto the road. (They can damage ones windscreen, but luckily this didn't happen).
As children we used to go mad for conkers, and pierce them, thread them onto an old shoelace then play 'Conkers' for ages in the playground. Some of the boys would harden their conker with vinegar, or a short spell in the oven at home. The aim was to have the conker that had smashed the most opponents' ones. (eg a 'tenner')
Nowadays they're banned, because the Snowflake Generation might hurt themselves!

Autumn set in suddenly about a week ago here in NE Ohio. We had a high of 88 one day to a low of 51 the next. We still get highs in the low seventies and overnight lows in the fifties, weather more typical of a month from now. On the other hand, my wife spotted a woolly bear with no stripe at all which means a very mild winter.

It's hard to discern the coming of fall here in SW Florida, mid-September seems a lot like mid-August. It's still just as hot and the monsoon is still here with heavy afternoon thunderstorms occurring almost daily but there are some indicators- the days are getting shorter, pumpkin lattes are showing up at Starbucks along with pumpkin muffins with cream cheese filling (drool) and at Total Wine there are displays of various pumpkin ales and Oktoberfest beers. In the estuaries and back bays redfish are starting to school up and the snook are in the midst of their spawn with lots of slot-sized pre-spawn males hanging around so a saltwater fisherman kind of knows when autumn nears.

It is more fall-like because of the length of day and angle of the sun; the temperatures are still up to about 90o every day, but that is so much better than the low 100s.

I should get a nice fall crop of peppers. The really do prefer the cooler temperatures; I struggled just to keep the plants alive this year for this final result. Peppers until November when we typically get our first frost.

The house-martins which have chattered and zoomed around our street have now disappeared - presumably heading back to tropical climes (a long journey). I hope they make it. I always miss them and wish them well. I heard that some 'sportsmen' in France enjoy taking pot shots at them as they fly overhead. Charming.

Sounds like false autumn: heat stress causing trees to shed leaves or die. There's also a massive crop here of elderberries all of a sudden, too, presumably while they can still propagate themselves.

Ha Mrrzy! We have a lovely goose-down duvet. It's deliciously warm in winter (our central heating goes off at 9pm) and yet in summer it seems to keep us quite cool. I suppose it insulates us at the temperature of our bodies. It cost £150 many years ago (from John Lewis - a posh shop!) All our bedding is pure cotton.
My husband anoints himself all over with oil (!) after his shower. He's a bit sticky in bed (I don't mind of course, it's necessary for his skin)
I'm rather bemused today - the sun is shining, no wind, and it's lovely and warm. I've been sitting on The Bench in my T-shirt, getting a bit of a tan (and yapping to passing villagers and their dogs)
This is NOT a sign of Autumn is it?

Several VERY chilly nights so far... and the county leaf collection brigade just posted the signs warning it begin "in a few days, weather permitting". The signs say nothing about "mortal sin". I MUST get rid of the majority of mine or I'd have no grass next year. If I collected them and composted, I'd have no place to use it. I never get them all... there are plenty to decay and go back to making now soil.

   Had to light the furnace... and then had to call a service company because it wouldn't stay lit. Had visions of the heat pump motor dying... but a very clever guy figured out that my boiler system had air bubbles.. and had it cleared in an hour. (I have radiant heat in the floor, with hot water pumped thru it.)
   So.. house is warm enough, and I can put away all the electric heaters.
We had 'almost' no snow last year, and they don't think there will be much this year.

All pines, spruces, firs, cypresses, cedars and sequoias are evergreen, but that doesn't mean they never drop leaves. They do, all the year round, though there may be some seasonality involved in the amounts they drop and when (I don't know...). A few types of coniferous trees are deciduous, such as larches and the swamp cypress (Taxodium, separate from the true cypresses). Coniferous woodland always has a carpet of leaves (needles) on the ground. When the ground freezes in winter, trees can't take up water and ordinary-type leaves would just dehydrate and die, but needle-type leaves have a tough outer layer and have their stomata enclosed on the inside curve of the needle, which greatly reduces water loss by transpiration. Evergreen broad-leaf trees have various strategies to get them through the winter, such as thick, leathery leaves, sunken stomatas or a covering of dense hairs.

And all of a sudden, the clusters of pine trees in the neighborhood,
while staying green,
have decided to shed quantities of dead pine needles.
All at once, BOOM, we come outdoors one morning
and the sidewalks and parking lots,
AND parked cars,
have got these dried up pine needles all over them!
And, as I say,
the tree branches are still well covered with good living green pine needles.
Something going on there that I don't understand.

Bloomin' clocks go back late this evening. It will get dark an hour earlier, but at least it will get light an hour earlier too. Trouble is, we have about seven clocks around the house, and it takes ages fiddling about putting them back. Fortunately, the 'puter etc do it by themselves.
I hate wrestling with the oven and the car clocks.
Also, our oil is going down rather fast, so I shall have to order 500 litres quite soon from Boilerjuice. I'm dreading finding out the price - bet it's gone up horrifyingly. Ah well. Better than shivering eh?
And we got a letter saying our Winter Fuel Payment will be £200. Very pleasing, until I read further down "It should arrive by January 25th".
I jolly well hope it arrives well before then - we have three months of heating to finance if that date is correct!

Lots of little log-vans trundling up and down our village streets. All the wood-burner owners have ordered their supply. Then one hears 'chop chop chop' as they use their axes to cut the logs into kindling-size pieces.
Also, our Sheep Sanctuary friends are trundling odd bits of pumpkins over to give their sheep a treat.
Algy's Farm up the road is thronged with families choosing their pumpkins (all colours, white, orange, green, and all sizes, from tiny to gigantic!)
And our beautiful Norfolk oaks (all the fields have lots of oaks along their boundaries, many over three hundred years old) are turning orange at last. Very late this year.
