    Fires getting musr be getting to the point of calling of day cutting

    The farmer would feel like chucking the feckin' eedjits onto their own BBQ! I would be tempted to run a set of discs round all roadside fields at the moment...

    Large diameter gate wheel needed.... Pointers?

    I have been trying to find a 6"+ diameter Gate Wheel/castre to go on a couple of track entrance gates where the surface is far from smooth. No joy on googling as yet.... Plenty of 4" about, but experience show that they are not adequate. Any pointers please?

    Teaching farmers to suck eggs

    Was this one of those "negative" displays.... As in "how NOT to look after sheep"? I would have been embarassed taking stock like that into the Culls!

    Apparently, the massive plume of black smoke was a stand of conifers near the old Hangars. Looked like rubber and machinery from down here in Longdon on Tern! No machinery caught, thank goodness.

    Walkers at High Ercall. "Big and Scarey" was how it was described to me... Crop and stubble I believe. 6 engines in attendance, 6 cultivators with neighbours creating fire breaks! Could see it from a distance, a little white wisp of smoke, then 5 mins later it was a massive black plume. And...

    Made me chuckle. Omnivores fight back.

    I particularly enjoyed the Owner's one comment... "You have chosen your lifestyle, it’s not a medical condition that you’ve been forced to endure through no fault of your own."

    Even 25mm would be well received here.... Hell, even 10mm would be a start.

    Amazing how deep the Chicory rooting must have got.... I have seen the same here. The "aftermath" 4 weeks after a light grazing consists of a some chicory leaves... More grass on the lawn, than any fields on the farm. My flushing paddock looks decidedly ropey!

    Bloody good stuff isn't it! Thank goodness I lobbed off one field as I felt it would go over before I got to graze it. The rest of the HL look very, very sad. It will interesting to see if they recover.

    Funeral plans.

    I agree with that. I had to arrange the funeral of a distant Aunt as I was executor and general dogsbody following her death. Eccentric character. Shroud for the service in the village church, and internment in the nearby church cemetery. I got a bit of grief from some mourners afterwards, who...
