Interesting Facts About Travel
Air rage increased by 14% over last year
In this day and age of increased security it is never a good idea to get involved in an argument on a plane. Our travel tip is: keep calm and do not get involved. Reclining seats are the prerogative of all passengers. Armrests are for sharing, children cry and kick your seat, flights are late. Hope for the best and plan for the worst and your journey will be less stressful. If you must have a drink make it a tipple only and stay sober.
What was the top product bought in airport stores last year? Take a guess………………………………………..bottled water.
Why are airplane windows so small and their corners rounded? Nope it is not to be minimalistic and trendy. It is for safety. They are shaped in an effort to eliminate cracking from pressurization cycles. If you want bigger and better windows stick to the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Another reason to leave in good time for the airport; If you rush and get caught driving above 20-30mph above the speed limit then new laws coming in could fine you 150% of your weekly income. So all those footballers in their Porsches could help us pay off the national debt. Sadly not, there is a maximum fine limit.

So Actually How Good Is the PestOff Chicken Feeder – Is This The Rat Proof Chicken Feeder We Are All Waiting For?

So is the rat proof and vermin proof chicken feeder we have all been waiting for?
Rick Lopes Product User Trials Testing feedback:
Setting the Scene:
My previous feeder was empty every day so I'm sure that it was the rats as well as the chickens eating the feed. A rat came into the chicken coop this morning while I was there and the chickens chased it away. I have 8 chickens and the previous feed consumption was huge. I've got 4 poison rat traps set out, Keep the coop clean, fill all the rat holes with rocks and gravel, but still have a rat problem. I'm hoping that your feeder will rid my chicken coop of the rats. If they can't get to the feed, hopefully they will leave. I will keep you posted over the next weeks on how it's going.
1/The feed is being consumed at a steady rate each day. After a short learning curve, I'm pretty sure that all the chickens are using the feeder.
2/Spillage has stopped. This was a huge problem with my old feeder. Birds would fly into the hen house and spill a lot of feed while eating from the feeder. This gave the rats plenty of feed on the floor in easy reach. In addition, the rats could climb down the rope and access the feed from the top as my old feeder had no hood.
3/Rats can't access the feed in the feeder from the top due to the hood, and from the bottom due the sliding door.
4/ I can leave the chicken coop door to the chicken run open 24 hours a day. Even if the rats come in, they can't get to the feed.
5/ I no longer see rats when I enter the chicken area. I haven't seen a new rat hole in several days. I was seeing them daily. It appears the rats are going somewhere else where they can access a food source.
I am super happy with your feeder. It is a winner. It appears to have solved my rat problem. I was considering getting rid of my chickens if I couldn't find a solution.
I will continue to send you updates in the weeks ahead. I've attached a photo of one of my chickens using the feeder.
Thank you again for your great customer support. Please feel free to add my comments to your review pages

How to Add a New Dimension to Your Garden
Gardens should be full of interest, with loads of different aspects ready to enchant all who enter them. But the problem is, many gardens are simply drab affairs, with a few bushes and a poorly maintained lawn.
There are some really easy ways to spice up your garden though, and add some new dimensions that all of your visitors will love. But what exactly are they? Well, they are explained in more detail below…
Decorative Garden Stakes
Decorative garden stakes are a great way to give your garden a unique feel, as they pop up in unexpected places, featuring an array of different designs. Kids will love garden stakes with cartoon-like characters on them, while adults will think that more decorative stakes add something to any flowerbed. Some garden stakes are even glow in the dark, making your garden a beautiful place even during the night-time hours.
When you think of garden ornaments, you probably think of tacky garden gnomes, sitting by a pond with their fishing rods. But the fact is that there are loads of really nice ornaments now available to buy, and they can be bought with a variety of different budgets. Whether you have a huge stone ornament in the centre of your lawn, or a small one hidden in the flowers, is completely up to you though…
A Lick of Paint
Even if you have the nicest selection of plants and the most perfectly manicured lawn, your garden isn’t going to look great if you have old, dilapidated fences around it. A simple lick of paint can sort these though, turning them from an eyesore into a focal point of the garden. The same is completely true when it comes to the old shed sitting at the bottom of your garden.
There are 24 hours in a day, but most people only enjoy their garden during the daytime hours. With some strategically placed lights though, you’ll be able to enjoy your garden whenever you want to. You can even combine lights with glow in the dark decorative stakes to create a garden that looks amazing during the night.
Have you got a structure in your garden that you really don’t like? If so, you can easily erect a trellis around it, before then allowing climbing plants to completely cover the eyesore. Many people choose climbing roses for this job, but you could also choose other plants such as honeysuckle or clematis.
So, there you have it: five ways to add a new dimension to your garden. Even implementing one of them will make your garden look better than it has ever done before!
