    The engineers replacing poles round here wére asked how deep they were. They said 1 meter but they should be at least 1.5 meters

    Very sorry to hear that, you'll have seen from my earlier posts you can't trust what they say and you have to shout loud to get attention. Hope you're on earlier, why can't they give you a generator or a temporary supply from the original line? If you're arguing with them the health and safety...

    Yes and according to the great and the good we should be going 100% electric. We're led by donkeys. Apologies to the donkeys

    The thing is when you phone up the first thing they do is quote your postcode to you so they must know

    I'm not questioning the effort of the engineers. It's the lies the company have trotted out that has angered me. For example one person said yesterday we weren't on the list because it hadn't been reported. I can prove it was reported 3 times by me and my neighbour. Before that last week they...

    Talking with some people from Nottingham this morning. When I said we had no power they said "Oh were you affected by the storm there" If this had been in the south it would have been declared a national emergency.

    Got ours back on just now. Only after a load of phone calls this morning to get them to do anything. Basically been spun a load of lies by Powergrid admin from the start. Took 5 minutes to fix, fuse in the junction box and we've been waiting 9 days. To add insult to injury the house opposite who...

    Bull suckling cows

    Yes the nose spike seems to tight to get on. Sounds like worth trying a nose ring because he hasn't one at the moment. Never fitted one myself, is it a vet job?

    He is a pervert. We PD some cows yesterday and he'd got 3 calves in calf which aren't a year old yet

    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    At the moment it seems to depend on the buyers. I think at Kirkby Stephen only Vivers want them done at the moment and it's 50p

    Bull suckling cows

    I have a 2year old Limi bull that started suckling cows over the summer. He's bigger than them and stands there with his tail wagging like a little calf.🤭 I tried 2 different nose spike things from our local ag stores but he's a big boy and they're to small. Any ideas on what might stop him or...

    I find the not knowing makes the situation more stressful. If there are only relatively few people off now why can't they keep us up to date with what is happening rather than generalized inaccurate information

    Many people still off? According to the power grid site we are 1 of 10 houses in the area not connected. However the web site says it will be connected by 6pm on the 2nd which was yesterday for fxxks sake. There's an hour's wait to talk to anybody. Why should that be if most people are now...
