    Series 2 Landies were good as you had the bench seat and if you put it in 2nd, you wouldn't roll off into the footwell.

    I remember a young lady at college who kicked the back window out of her Mini Clubman :rolleyes:

    Small pickup

    I had a Viva GT at college and I used to think I was one of the Dukes of Hazzard with that big wide bonnet (with lots of empty space underneath it) I saw one parked in Lidls a while ago and went to look at it, but was amazed at how small it was.. The fact that we can't fit our modest Skodas into...

    Tofoo advert wtf

    I have heard it cited as one of the reasons for the declining salmon population on our river here, the Hampshire Avon. There are an awful lot of houses been built upstream, especially MOD housing for younger families and starter homes, which I would guess would be releasing more of the hormones.

    My new age Steiner friends on my milk round were warning decades ago that hormones getting into the water supply from contraceptive pills would render us all infertile. I think they were probably right

    This sort of thing never did me no (lasting) harm, apart from being beaten up by my sister when I called them a bunch of jessies.

    Best off road goat we had was a Renault 4 van with the opening rear lid. It would run rings round the s3 LR we had at the time and you could scamper down from wherever the 6700 had broken down, onto the road and drive to the dealers in comfort and warmth. :)

    Small pickup

    Just looking at the el Camino which it says is a 1970, the front end looks just like those big Vauxhall Ventora/VX4'90s that you used to see in the late 70s. I don't think they lasted long in before succumbing to rust.

    That looks as if it was inspired by the Chevvy el Camino. It seemed to be popular with the drug dealer types when we were in the US in the 1980s.

    De horning paste

    The less messing around with freshly calved sucklers the better, so they probably weighed up the pros and cons and decided no painkiller was better for OUR welfare if it got the job done quicker. :)

    Antidote to Venganuary

    Most of the derisive comments on vegan ad threads appear to come from ordinary consumers rather than farmers. A majority seem to be fed up with the constant self righteous preaching. Maybe it will actually benefit us by keeping meat in the public eye and encouraging people to eat local.

    Great article in The Times

    Our estate evicted all the graziers from the fbt land over the last couple of years after the agreements came up. I lost 100 acres out of 300 I have had for over 30 years as they couldn't take back my aha land, but I think they were hoping to make the rest unviable too. The aim was to put all...

    So, what did you learn today?

    Don't eat half a loaf of hot bread the minute it comes out of the breadmaker.

    Wet Wipes Are They Going To Be Banned?

    I bet in a hundred years time, they will be mining today's land fill sites to extract the plastic after the oil has dried up.

    Sources for meat consumption in Uk during last 4yrs.

    I'm guessing the ad companies do market research and simply aim at the most receptive audience. Old geezers like me are fixed in our ways and won't change so they show an idealized right-on middle class world for those with most money. These folks all seem to want to virtue-signal and buy the...

    Foundations of Farming

    Many of the things our grandparents took as read are being undermined and condemned in the interests of "fairness and equality." This is a very worthy cause, but instead of raising everyone to a higher level, it seems to me we are sinking since it is far easier to pull something down than it is...
