He lived in the woods I think Peter - this 'ere guy lives in a field, by the side of the main road.

Jethro, Thanks to your endorsement of my picture I seemed to have attracted 343 visits to this image (so far). I'd like to know what deodorant you use?
You make some good points Peter and I have to say the jury is still out this end. I am thinking......
We seem to build houses deliberately to fall down without regular and expensive maintenance. If we built house the British way a whole swath of society would perish (carpenters, handymen, painters, roofers etc).
I would say that 95% of houses are combustible. So when we have our wildfires, we are left (for the most part) with ash and the odd chimney back.
