UK Gardeners Warned About Hairy Plant-Destroying Pests Flooding Gardens This May

[ad_1] The sun is shining! The bank holiday is within touching distance and I can almost smell my beloved beer garden cider from here. It was a pretty treacherous winter, even for those of us who prefer colder months and millions of us will be racing to spend time in the great outdoors. The great outdoors where we can find sun, people walking their beautiful dogs and, oh, bugs. In fact, the green-thumbed experts at GardeningExpress.co.uk have issued a warning to gardeners and homeowners alike that there is an invasion of bugs spreading throughout the UK. These hairy pests are called Cockchafers and nicknamed the Maybug. They are known to be a nuisance around the garden but, fortunately, are not harmful to humans. Just annoying (with a funny name). What are Cockchafers? Chris Bonnett, founder of GardeningExpress.co.uk, said: “If you’ve sat in the garden on a warm summer evening and suddenly hear a loud, aggressive buzzing noise, it’s likely to be an adult Cockchafer. “The adult bugs will seek plants and flowers but are unlikely …

Doja Cat Has Jimmy Fallon Try on Her Hairy Coachella Look While She Wears a Thong on ‘Tonight Show’

[ad_1] Things got quite hairy on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon when Doja Cat brought along one of the show-stopping costumes from her Coachella performance.  Toward the end of the interview, host Jimmy Fallon pulled out the ensemble resembling a full-body wig from behind his desk and proceeded to put it on over his clothes. Needing an assist, Doja leapt from her seat to lend a hand. The 28-year-old rapper hadn’t accounted for her booty-baring wardrobe, adjusting her thong and covering her backside with her hands and saying to the audience, “Don’t look at my a**!”  As Fallon shimmied his way into the Yeti-like outfit, the duo couldn’t quite figure out which side was supposed to be the front or the back. “I like that, that’s creative,” Doja encouraged Fallon at one point.  Doja Cat laughs as Jimmy Fallon tries on her Coachella costume on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’ – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon / YouTube Doja Cat covers her backside on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ – The Tonight …

Neil Morrissey: ‘Playing a woman was great. I had big hairy men flirting with me on set’ | Film

[ad_1] Anthony Hopkins called The Bounty “a sad mess of a film, such a botched job”, but I think it’s an excellent movie and Hopkins is superb. What’s your view? CatupatreeThat was one of my first jobs out of drama school. I think Anthony Hopkins was brilliant. I’d like to know when that quote was from. When we were filming it, I was only 20 years old and having the time of my life in Tahiti with 200 gorgeous extras. I know that Anthony had problems with Roger Donaldson, the director. I don’t know whether it was artistic – I was enjoying myself too much to pay attention – but in my opinion it ended up being a really good film. They must have patched things up because they went on to do The World’s Fastest Indian together. I’d be interested to know what Tony – as he’s known to the glitterati – thinks of it now. You grew up in care homes. Does the story of I Am Urban resonate with your own experiences? …
