Too much of a good thing

Sometimes too much of a good thing can be bad.  In Britain we crave the sun.  Here we avoid it like the plague; the source of Vitamin D in plentiful supply.  I don’t understand why there aren’t solar panels everywhere capitalising on all this free natural energy.

Living in the ‘countryside’, yes indeed the New Territories is considered that, I am enjoying the open space, greenery, fresh air, birdsong, butterflies.  But here again too much nature can also be a pain.

The battle with the mosquitoes are on-going but I am slowly developing clever tactics.  Now the army of giant black ants have joined forces.  These are not your common garden variety ants but super resistant ants; an excellent illustration of Darwin’s survival of the fittest.

Why not share your story with me, because we all have one, don't we?
