    It was interesting to note that our swallows were sitting their 2nd brood but stopped when the temperatures went right up a week ago. Now it's cooler, she's back on the nest. Perhaps at the upper twenty degrees C, the eggs didn't need incubating.

    Hello and Welcome.

    It would be nice if they did, but they're not legally obliged to. If they have a second language, more likely than not it's English, so that's why they try and come here.

    Are you all depressed ?

    I'm not depressed, I never have been, perhaps it's because I'm a realist, mind you I'm no longer farming having retired 4 years ago and glad of it. However, this thread, started 3 hours ago is now up to 6 pages. I've just read the first 2, I can't keep up.

    Welding lift arm.

    All I can say is that in 50 years of farming, I've never had to do it. When I retired, I had a 34 year old Fiat 780 DT with 6500 hours on it. It was the main ploughing tractor for a long time. Lower link sensing too, so it took some punishment.

    Have You Been Pinged?

    Mrs LS does not have a smart phone, hers is nearly 20 years old. I have one but it's turned off unless I leave the village and I don't have the app. The reason? where we live we can't get a mobile signal. We'll carry on in blissfull ignorance whilst all this pinging goes on.
