So meet Tellus, Herkules and Turbjörn, our three alpacas
Tellus our stallion alpaca.
Here I am removing horsetails from their paddock.
Horsetails are not really good for any animal and the wet
weather has really brought them out. The alpacas were quite
intrigued with what I was doing

Finally one comment from my internet trawl (there probably won't be much of that next week) I am always amazed when the EU issues a rebuke to a national government to set its house in order regarding corruption as happened last week to Romania. Does the EU not realise that to root out corruption you need to educate the public on what they can do about it? It is no good telling a corrupt government to sort themselves out and give them a smack on the hand. They need to help the population to mobilise against instances of corruption and explain how they can deal with it. They have been a population under a communist yoke for a long time with long standing practices and attitudes, they do not turn around in one night.
