    `Give up "on life" ` You state. Well, maybe that is fine for some folks, but not I. This morning I had "words" with Network Rail, who are planning on painting a bridge soon. "No, you are not. The female dipper will be sitting under there on her nest soon. I spoke about this matter to the police in December." They were amenable and are going to bring Natural England into the equation on Monday. "There is not a force on this planet that is going to win this war against nature" I continued, "It don`t matter how big your organisation is. I shall take on the massed ranks of all the Dark forces, before I give up on my beautiful river birds." They were obliging, and realized, no doubt, that their only remaining option is to cooperate. This is Yorkshire, and we don`t give up, ever, as you very well know, Ratfink.
