I always wear gumboots with the trousers tucked in.  When I do find 
leeches, I just rub them very fast with my fingers (a bit of soil on the 
fingers helps).  They soon fall off.  Obviously salt would help for more 
delicate places.

Steve, I assume Fiona is the friend you mean?  If so I'm glad to hear the 
owl is back despite the loss of one of the big trees in that area.

Now I know it's totally off topic but there was such a wonderful response 
last year - my Aboriginal sisters want to know if anyone wants any mats 
or baskets, clap sticks or didgeridoos for Christmas.  All the money 
raised goes to semi-traditional women and their children.
