Gloria Hook, a newbie bee keeper making a buzz
This week we stay at home to maintain social distancing and Jim chats with his long-suffering wife Gloria. Glo, as she is affectionately known, is a newbie bee keeper. Although she’s had hives for a few years she only took up the actual bee keeping herself a couple of years ago. This podcast should hopefully quell the fears of anyone else who has thought about getting into bee keeping but always thought it would be too difficult.
Newsround March 2020Well, March 2020 will always be remembered, in the UK, as the month Coronavirus took hold. We've seen exemplary behaviour and commitment from our blue light organisations, especially by the NHS, but equally we've seen unbelievable acts of selfishness and stupidity within some areas of our population. In amongst all of that, we have found a few wild game stories to discuss as only two grumpy old men can!
John Davidson, The Mad Giraffe Atlantic RowerThis week we chat with John Davidson. After a full career in the Army, serving in the elite SAS, and a second career in the global security industry, this man is always ready for a new challenge. So much so that he has only just returned from a successful solo crossing of the Atlantic in a small rowing boat - The Mad Giraffe. He didn't do this just for the adventure though, his aim was to raise money for a Motor Neurone Disease charity - My Name5 Doddie Foundation. Please help him achieve his goal and donate on his charity page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/madgiraffeatlanticrow
