Off at a tangent -
Geese make amazing guard dogs. A friend who was brought up in India told me that they had geese in the garden to warn them of intruders. Better than dogs any day.
And during WW11 my mother lived in a village half way between Nottingham & Derby. Her house was on the village green where there was a flock of geese belonging to a local farmer. The locals always got prior warning of an air raid on Derby or Nottingham because the geese started raising Cain a good 10 minutes before the air raid warning sirens started up.
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
