Glad you got through the day in one piece.
Try putting a few (4/5 ) dried Echinacea flower heads into a bottle of vodka (next autumn)and leaving them there for 3 or more months, then drink !! its a totally different taste/colour but you'll not catch a cold that winter season. Have fun :-)

Though in my life i have planted hundereds of oaks and beech around the french and english countryside to ease my guilt feelings. And hopefully many of these saplings will go on to maturity.

Not wishing to be rude, but guns are best put into the dustbin. We can do without them. And so can the french wildlife.
