    Dealing with depression - suicidal thoughts - Join the conversation (including helpline details)

    I borrowed this from a friend. I saw Doug talk when he was over a couple of years ago. It was a lot to take in but hopefully the book will help too

    Royal Highland Show Cancelled

    Received the same yesterday. With the society claiming a bleak financial year, how much did that cost? Fancy postcards, SAE and paid envelope, donation form and cover letter. No option to pay BACS which is completely daft. Also 3 individual letters came here (mum, dad and myself) instead of one...

    Right then. It's fodder rape time. :(

    I’ve got about 20 acres of forage crop (sown rate 2.5kg per acre of interval, 0.5kg of whitestar). Can I graze inlamb ewes on it or will it have a negative effect due to iodine deficiency?
