I was wondering if anyone has used birch bark to seal a pond?

I haven't done it but it makes sense as birch bark is well proven to hold water. Pine tar to seal the laps and ....Bob's your uncle!


Every where you came and left you came in the name of love and left a wake of happiness and tenderness and sweet conflict - sweet conflict.

You don't come round......whispering, everywhere, everywhere....calling, I'm calling your number, calling, calling your number, calling, calling, you're everywhere to me.

That sounds like far far too much work.
