    Where to find a light switch

    Vehicle Wiring Products is worth a look. They have a modular switch which is intended for headlights. https://www.vehiclewiringproducts.co.uk/c-59-switches/c-231-modular-rocker-switches-warning-lamps

    Retractable air line reel and electric extension cable

    If it's still any good, I'd be interested in buying it from you...

    River Lugg, Herefordshire

    Basically the same as what they've been saying on the farming rules for water since they were introduced years ago: "the rules are the rules, but we won't be taking any enforcement action".

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    "Country of origin USA" is pretty unambiguous though. But so is "born in the UK". 🤷‍♂️ ETA - beaten to it.

    Pictures From France

    My first thought was that it looked like the viaduct you go under on the way from Prenois circuit back towards Dijon.

    Xero - tips and tricks

    VAT return done today, and one year completed on Xero. Been a bit of a learning curve, but it's been worth it. Just wondering what I should do at year-end, if anything? How do people do opening and closing balances for things like straw and er... oh yeh, pigs! I have some current asset...

    Workshop bench.

    I spent ages planing three rough cut sleepers straight so they butted up against each other, then planing them flat on top, only for them to warp and shrink after a few months in the garage. Ended up with an uneven top with gaps in it. Hard as feck, and perfectly usable. Just not optimal. I'm...

    Workshop bench.

    Why not a 6 or 8 ft bench, and 14 or 16 ft of racking next to it? If you have a 22 ft bench, it'll just get covered up with 20ft of junk, with 2 ft clear by the vice. With an 8ft bench you have the same 2ft of clear bench space, only 6ft of junk, and 14ft times 4 or 5 shelves for actual...

    Ad plants , you can’t make it up

    That one did bring about the downfall of a government though... Wind your neck in. AD as a process is a great way of turning unwanted biomass (waste food, dead animals, sewerage, muck, slurry) into usable heat and energy, as @sjt01's setup admirably demonstrates. The economics and regulation...

    Muck for straw

    Do you or he know the cash value (equivalent to bought in NPK) of the slurry?

    Muck for straw

    You bale and clear the field, and charge them contractors' rates for doing so; keeps you in charge and can make a bit from the work. Then you arrange and pay for muck to be hauled and spread at a mutually convenient time; gets your straw back to you plus all the unused nutrients in the pig...

    I've come back to mountain biking for the first time in nearly 20years. Lots of things have changed, and got better, but tubeless is the only complete game changer. Being able to run low pressures gives you so much more grip. The bike just feels so much more planted. It's unreal. That said...

    Xero - tips and tricks

    I have a couple of the 'second idea' things set up. Breeding stock replacements and semen come from the same ltd co, but under different brands. I have the two brands as different Xero Contacts. Likewise we buy straights from one arm of a big agricultural supplier, and compounds from another...

    Do you or your family do your own bookkeeping?

    What else could you be doing with your time? How much would that earn you? Just because Jeff Bezos is perfectly capable of cleaning his own bathroom, I can't imagine he does it himself; he's got more valuable things to be doing with his time.

    Thanks. I think so too. But I'm not sure how you figured that out - I'm on the other side of the camera in all those photos. 🙂

    It's a Salsa Vaya Travel. Really nice bike, very versatile. Quite rare, and a bit esoteric. https://salsacycles.com/culture/new_for_2013_introducing_vaya_travel The bars are On-One Midge. Wide on the drops, for control apparently. (Mostly I think it's just for the look.) It's built up with a...
