    I think it depends in part on what down you use. Eider down is (I've been told by a sign at Barnes WWT) is the baby Eider duck moultings as they fledge (or maybe shed winter feathers). So if it's Eider down then it's picking up duck left overs. Is that exploitation? Does it deprive other ducks of material for their nests? Haven't a trucking clue. But when I read the sign I was slightly surprised as I'd always assumed it was left over dead ducks.

    Edit - this might be shite and the sign was a lie.

    Ahh thanks. I don't mind the Batman games but I wouldn't go out of my way to play them again nor anything similar. I'll wait for RDR II

    Thanks too to @CYOA @Sumo

    That was a fucking amazing gig. I didn't realise Satan's Satyrs were in support - love 'em so was really pleased when I saw their stuff on the merch table. Pity their sound was shit but it was 10 times better for Windhand!

    Where is the best place on the forum to find a lawyer who does leasehold extensions? If it's here drop me a PM. Looking to sort ours out.

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Anyone played it? Didn't try the first one and was wondering what it's like. Does it play as well as Skyrim or Red Dead?

    I hit someone today.

    Not in that way but by signalling left at Lambeth Bridge north side roundabout (Embankment on to Horseferry rd). There is now a weird 'escape zone' at each of the 'corners' that I don't think is a cycling lane but it seems some people use it as that.

    He cycled up the inside and I tapped him a little bit when I stuck my hand out to indicate. I tried to apologise but he went on his way. Hopefully no harm done.

    Whole Foods used to stock v-pud - the vegan black pudding. They don't any more. Anyone know of a London stockist? The internet doesn't help and I want to eat one.

    Bordeaux mixture has been banned by the EU since end of 2015. You might find it hard to get hold of. You can make it up yourself but I wouldn't bother. Copper content is high - not something you want getting into the soil/into your food. Never really understood how it could be termed organic.

    As an alternative (that helps a little bit) you can increase the airflow between plants by removing the lower leaves once the fruit appears. This will also help them ripen as they'll get more sunlight.
