Hi Leo, what you have in your picture is a flexible saw. You can use it to cut small branches etc.

You can also use it as they did in the Godfather :lol:

Anyway, talking about knives I just bought a new machete yesterday. I had an excuse as I bought a new house here and it is close to the a lot of wild greenery. That need :lol: to be chopped from time to time :lol: that is where the machete will come in :oops: I think the wife knows its an excuse :lol:. Some of you may have noticed I am not logging is as much as I used to because they have just finished building the place and I am spending a lot of time there with all the installations etc.

But I got a small river/stream about 50 mtrs behind the house, with a lot of tiny feeder streams and some water logged places, loads of frogs there. Idea is to go to the market buy about 20 - 30 1- 2 lb sized Toman size and release them there next month.

We get visits from Wild Boar too...

Thanks Guys, will let you know how it turns out. Pooped out today, trying to cut corners and save cash by doing my own istallations. Imagine fitting all the taps, showers and mirrors in 5 bathrooms, done that today.

Thanks Bops, the place is nothing spectacular it is what they call a standard village house in Hong Kong but it is going to be home. I still need to scope the surroundings properly. Make some bird houses to encourage the swallows and bats and put them on the terrace. Have a lot of them there some nesting in the neighbor’s balcony they take care of all the mosquitoes etc.

I have a small lichee grove growing wild immediately behind the house. The fruit should be ready when we move in.

Back from the hardware store, dont think the wife is going to be too happy with all the new toys :mrgreen:

Congratulations on your New House, Bobby. BTW what is Toman?

Do you have Snake Heads there in Hong Kong?

Regards,

Arun
