Team Captain Ryan Sanders gets down with the thicccness with a nice squat PR🍑🍑 He hopes to put up a 6 plate squat by December this year, and his PR song “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton will get him there😭💪
The wasp factory. I’ve had a tricky relationship with wasps since having nests in the vineyard last year (they went mad when I sprayed), although I resisted removing them and found to my relief that they caused negligible crop damage (some organic/biodynamic producers see fit to make a special case for wasps and actively try to destroy nests). This year I have some back in the vineyard and am quite relaxed about it (bar the attacks when I spray!!!), but I will admit to being pretty upset to see them make a nest by the winery tree, if for no other reason than I want to have open day visitors gathering round in September and can quite imagine many not wanting to share the tasting with wasps.
Imagine how pleased I was to find the whole nest dug out today, courtesy of my resident badgers. Apparently they locate nests and await the peak grub stage for each, before a night time raid, digging up the entire nest and devouring all the wasp grubs. Nature. Don’t mess with it.

Top Returning Players
F Lamar Stevens (20-7-2)
G Rasir Bolton (11-2-2)
Returning forward, Lamar Stevens, will look to carry this Nittany Lions team somewhere in the uphill battle called the Big Ten. I’m not sure how much help he’s going to get with the 12th best recruiting class in the conference, but Stevens can make magic happen. I wouldn’t be surprised if he averaged near 25 PPG. I see this team finishing in the bottom five of the conference, and not being near a tournament bid.
Prediction: 16 wins and a Big Ten second round loss
White House “#Muslim #Cannibals have crossed Pakistan's Southern Border and turned North into #Mexico headed for the United States looking for #Christians as a steady food source. #MuslimCannibals do not travel in Caravans they are technically described as a Pod of Muslim Cannibals. The Pod of Cannibals, mainly the dark skinned ones, is also looking for #White #Women. Muslim Cannibals prefer to interbreed with White #Caucasian#Christian#Virgin#Women and they prefer underage #girls commonly referred to as #Jailbait in the United States. #Mormons have another term for this age group. Muslim Cannibals have extremely strong thighs and calves which allow them to jump over most walls and travel long distances looking for Christians and White Women. Picture them as Muslim #Kangaroos that are #Meat Eaters with a taste for young girls. Muslim Cannibals also have strong claws on their hands which let them tunnel quickly for long distances just like #Badgers. Many uninformed people think that Muslim Cannibals suck the #blood of #babies.”
In North America, there are 4 sub-species of American #Badgers. The prairies are home to Taxidea taxus taxus. This sub-species is listed as Special Concern by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada.
We go onsite to Camp Randall Stadium to bring you our Wisconsin Football Predictions! The Badgers disappointed in 2018, going 8-5 after starting the year at #4 in the nation. With Jonathan Taylor and a new QB, can the Badgers bounce back in 2019? #collegefootball#cfb#wisconsin#badgers#espn#football
Dave and I spotted a young Badger this morning .
Badger, badger, badger! I saw my first couple of badgers this spring. It came as no surprise I found them delightful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What did shock me was how hasty they were to beat a retreat at the slightest noise. I got the impression that their savage nature was all hyperbolic nonsense.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
THEN I found out they eat hedgehogs! (Which fills me with an irrational horror, Georgia and I kept fearing one would drag off Kazooie after we buried her, and even though it would be a good thing to nourish them, the idea of her being torn apart is a sickening one that still brings a pricking to my eyes)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, a badger would rather eat worms. So would hedgehogs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keeping this in mind, I'm never going to use pesticides that kill these things off ever again. By doing so, you're basically a hedgehog murderer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Major renovation in 8 months to Stoughton Road's gym. Here's a pic of the last round and as always, we won't be closing the gym even for a minute! 💪
If there's anything you think we could efficiently use, I'm all ears!
I sent out my latest pattern newsletter yesterday, with tutorials for sewing these fine fellows 💌 I'm really glad to have finally sent out June & July's free projects (they've been "in progress" for so long!) but I'm super mad at myself because I've realised that I missed out a section of the fox's face when sewing the sample brooch. The tutorial is still usable (I noticed my mistake in time and included a "hello I'm an idiot, do as I say not as I did" note in the instructions) but instead of being able to easily add these projects to my shop later in the year I'm going to have a whole bunch of work to redo (sewing, photographing, editing) before that can happen. All because I missed out a couple of stitches! SIGH. #bugsandfishesnewsletter
We have another legend that picks up MOM this week - @vikkgill1art gets the prize after smashing his way to 94 and then picking up 4-24 with the ball 😮
A huge thanks goes out to Eileen Gay Opticians - Broxbourne’s local Optometrist who were our Matchday Sponsor yesterday as we picked up a big 90 points 👏🏽🏏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
