As any concerned mother bird is about their chick, so I too have been busily tending to my brood. I am of course referring to the pages of the next Woodcarving, the bird issue!

And so the big day has arrived. Yes it"s time to go and visit the nearest polling station and put little crosses beside the party candidates of choice for this the General Election. I still haven"t got a clue which colour gets my vote, so I shall be studying last minute press articles on the ...
