Extinction events in Ashby st Ledgers

Ashby st Ledgers, seat of the ‘gunpowder plot’ of 1605. I cycled through there yesterday on the way to Daventry. This is the manor house where the plot took shape.

To create the strongest possible Marijuana strains…. Now a legal substance in the US and Portugal; governments, agencies, police and policy makers are taking an increasingly lenient view on ‘the herb‘. Bring on Bruce Banner When I once went to Amsterdam, I had some ‘White Widow’, at that time considered to be one of the strongest strains of Marijuana. Things have changed.
