    The french election

    Mrs. Czech was telling me that if in the first round (baring in mind there are 12 candidates) one candidate receives 30% or more of the vote, then there isn’t a second round🤔 I wonder when this last happened. I wonder, if, with the popularity of Macron, it will happen this month?

    I haven’t had any interest in buying glyphosate since last September, so I had no actual recent experience. I had read the threads on here with some horror but again I won’t need any until, September again🤷‍♂️ However, yesterday I went into my local suppliers store to collect some fungicide for...

    French douane

    So, I arrived at the douane with this, parked the wrong side so even had to lean over the drum to show my passport etc. “Have you bought anything while you were in the UK sir!” “No” “Ok, have a nice day, goodby” Maybe if @bobk didn’t wear his “I hate France” T shirt/attitude, he wouldn’t have...

    John Deere 3420 cooling

    I have had my 3420, shutting itself down lately and today got to looking up the error codes. They were about engine coolant temperature. So looking at the actual engine/radiator, the engine was hot but the radiator was cold so obviously not circulating. Does anybody have any tips or is it...

    Top con weaving

    My deutz has topcon autosteer which I have used all year without any real problem. Thinking back to early spring, flat rolling seing the diff lock, sometimes the tractor would start weaving. Not really important on that job. Well, now I am drilling, by and large it is fine, but sometimes...

    Leaving Britain

    So over the years, something has struck me as odd. Not just on here, an ex pat group as well for example. Now, folk seem to be able to move around without reproach (my wife for example) from those left in the home land, from anywhere in the world; except Britain🤷‍♂️. It seems to be some sort of...

    Manitou 628 letting fuel into oil

    So this ageing manitou had a Perkins engines which fills the sump with (I assume) fuel. I have known a Nuffield do it in the past😂. Is there a most probable fault and if so is it a viable fix? At the moment I just change the oil pretty often🙄

    U.K. Graduation 2021

    I don’t know, for those graduating this summer (my daughter for example), for half their time at university, it’s been somewhat underwhelming (seems a lot of money for a few videos being one quote). With everything else opening up, it just seems a final kick in the balls to not allow graduation...

    Fungicide in a bag

    Only curious, I was thinking back and I used to use a fungicide that came in a soluble bag that you just put in the tank, whole. I recon it was Maneb, Zineb and something ... Like furban??? Just out of curiosity can anyone fill any blanks, like it’s name? And ingredients? I think it was mainly...
