    When a days fencing was nearly his last !

    So the gas didn't explode I'm assuming. So is it just a very high pressure in the pipe that caused the incident?

    The Hedge Cutting Thread

    Yes. It's a crazy job having a dangerous machine operating on a road and throwing debris out. I hate doing roads now. Little country lanes are ok but others are dodgy. The most risky is cutting the inside of a roadside hedge with debris going out on to the road. I doubt any other industry would...

    Useless, Worthless University Courses?

    My daughter went to university but commuted from home as near enough. She recons the course could of been completed in a quarter of the time but university is a lifestyle choice for most. I know of a few lecturers and they don't seem the sharpest tools in the box.

    Useless, Worthless University Courses?

    When I was at school only a handful of the very clever type went to university. Now it seems the whole system is devalued with courses to suit all and too many going on to get degrees. Technical college, apprenticeship, etc are far better for a lot.

    Got to be in it to win it!

    So many sectors of agriculture are really having it rough and there doesn't seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel. Luckily cereal growers have a decent price to cover the increases to a degree. But many others are seeing fertiliser, fuel, cereals, machinery, electricity, labour, etc...
