    EU: open borders, or else...

    Pray tell a secondary modern schoolboy, @Danllan, what evades (with accents) means. How do you type the accents with an English keyboard anyway?

    Colin doesn't seem to paint a lot of his stuff.

    New farm, the journey begins!

    Why do you want a new house, your existing one looks alright?

    I thought that nobody had the right to not be offended.

    Best WW2 film?

    The Battle of Britain Ice Cold In Alex The latter was one of the many films that I saw in the cinema, that is now Salisbury City Hall, when I skived off football and cricket when I was at the further education college between 1959 and 1961.

    What exactly do you have to do @Clive on your farm in exchange for carbon credit money?

    The Light Aviation Thread

    Relating to my post #534, does anyone know if the Irish CAA has an equilavent to G-INFO?

    Who "owns" the carbon on a farm? Landlord or tenant?

    Oh dear. If agents have to go round getting down on their knees to take soil samples, they'll get their red trousers dirty.

    The British Pound

    Rear discharge spreader beaters

    The first spreader that I can remember my father having (probably his first) was a 4 wheeled, land drive machine with steel wheeels. It had a bed chain with horizontal beaters and was originally horse drawn but converted to a drawbar at some point, it still had the pan type seat on the front...
