    Here we go - ‘The Countryside Is Racist’

    I once worked for a company who tended to fly three flags; our union jack, the company flag, and the national flag of any visitors. Each time we had visitors our security man was assigned to go and hoist the visitors flag first thing in the morning before the visiting personnel arrived. One...

    Mind you, the landlord from the pub just across from the club was stabbed to death by one of his ex-customers; just an other form of rat I suppose! :(

    It's real nasty is Wiels; we had a guy from our local club sustain a minor cut, or scratch, whilst doing some renovations in an old property and within a week or so he was dead.

    Here we go - ‘The Countryside Is Racist’

    Often the bullied become the bully; a youngster bullied and prejudice saturated at home will take out his own suffering and pain on a fellow pupil for being different and schools so often turn a blind eye.

    Here we go - ‘The Countryside Is Racist’

    Birds of a feather and all that aside, isn't racism just bullying by an other name and on a different scale? Talk with a different accent in the wrong area, or speak the Queens English in your nearest pub, and you may well be ostracised. Many a bright and talented school boy/girl has been...

    Rats Rats Rats Advice Please

    Rats is very clever and crafty creatures, perhaps they have out manoeuvred him; hopefully not though! When I were a kid we shared house with rats, roaches, and occasionally head lice but by the time I was born in March 1945 dad had won the battle against bed bugs but eradication of the rats...

    Here we go - ‘The Countryside Is Racist’

    Isn't, perhaps, racism just tribalism by an other name? I can recall standing at a public bar and the guy stood next to me said that the only good German was a dead German. I, G-d forgive me, used to be racist; blacks, Germans, and Jews never bothered me, I despised great white America...

    Bobtaildisco, how's the battle of the rats going; are you winning, are you progressing, and are you possibly outwitting them?

    To be honest, I thought that the chap's English was probably far better than his writing in the post implied and he was running a bit of a wind up but should I have been wrong I shall apologise if he should return. :rolleyes:

    A wee bit o' silly and perhaps serious thinking. Woke up about 0300hrs this morning and decided to empty my bladder (this getting old can be an inconvenient pest at times) mind, you begin to realise that old age is becoming a 'wee' bit of a problem when you are aware of bladder troubles, always...

    Oh. I is still around Rich but tend to hover in the background and expand my knowledge of the farming world and all it's foibles. It's good to see more people realising that sharing can be an effective tool in the battle against, anxiety, and depression. Me and Margaret have weathered the...

    Thoughtless was the word that came to my mind; or perhaps inconsiderate.

    Never seen anything like that on Emmerdale m8; I am absolutely amazed and impressed that you kept your cool when communicating with the vet's office whilst battling with a livestock life and death situation. I guess that if the vet had not arrived in time you may well have lost the mother as...

    white lives matter

    Throughout history, many atrocities have been committed in the name of religion. As each religious group gained total power others were made to pay in fire and blood for any dissention from the considered norm. Within the racist debate, I can't help but wonder what will happen ( despite being...

    I can recall having several childhood nightmares that depicted a skeleton rising up from the ground and attacking my father with an implement that was used to rake out the ashes from under the living room fireplace. I can also recall confusing the word razor with raker. A none-dream memory is...
