Honest blog stats

On a good day this donkey blog gets 2, 229 hits.  As a random example, here is August 11th 2014 when I posted something controversial about Israeli propaganda and donkeys.

 Happily, the average is settling down at about three hits per day, and most of these three visitors are sensible, non-hysterical people who simply like donkeys.

 Gardeners Question Time

I have been trying to grow a small Christian community in very dry territory in Iraq, which was subject to the well-known Tony Blair Blight.  After flowering for hundreds of years this precious flower has been decimated by Islamist weeds growing up in response to Blair Blight. Can your Gardeners Question Time panel tell me when the waffle will stop and some serious action begin?

About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have two blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog.

    I would like to say that most donkey fanciers are free from hysteria. Donkeys are an acquired taste, and so require a certain sobriety of temper.

    Pax.

    Thank you Fr Hugh. Donkeys are indeed an acquired taste and I have been remonstrating with Morris since Tuesday when he acquired an overnight taste for Aitana’s left ear and bit a piece out of it. The savagery of this summer is never ending, but the answer is – as always – iodine and lots of hot water.

    I is not sure about being sensible and non-hysterical but I do qualify as as a liker of donks. Nice moustache in the pic btw. I had a gardening problem like that. I got fed up with slugs eating my lilies so I put slug pellets down. I then spent 2 years unable to control the triffids taking over my garden. It seems the slugs were controlling the weeds as well as eating my lilies. I suppose I came to the conclusion that it was something like the law of unintended consequences and better to leave well alone.

    Normally,previous commenters are supposed to be able to comment without waiting in a moderation queue, but you seem to have been held up for no reason. Prolly because you is a goat.

    Ah…prolly cos I changed my name. I had a slight mishap and couldn’t access my DonCurlyhorne profile. It is still the same pic but a new scary profile. All this happened of course because I is a goat of little brain and managed to lock myself out of my own account in the first place.

    Well, that sounds like another fine goat panic you got yourself into. Here in the Costa Blanca rabits and donks is mostly scatty and skittish but not greatly confused.

    I have been asked by Gareth to post this comment as he is locked out of his own blog:

    “Hello everyone,
    I am locked out of my blog due to two-step verification not recognizing my new phone handset. WordPress is not responding to any SOS messages I send them. They have a notice saying there will be no support for bloggers on Worpress until September 23rd(!) The brotherlapin.com blog will be updated as soon as I can get access to it again!”

    Thanks.”
