    Behaviour of the Public (well some)

    Listening to the radio news whilst pushing slurry about, I heard an angry senior police officer berating those who had left their homes for a jolly beside the sea. He was raging, rightly in my view, about how some were treating this crisis as a holiday. Add that to the emotional video of the...

    Out door lambing

    Every year we get posters on here telling us indoor lambers, what idiots we are. Indoor lambers spend too much on sheds, labour, medicines & some argue we are on the edge of going senile & our land should be taken off us & given to keen new starters because we are so stupid. However get a day...

    Mod Note: New thread created by moving some posts. Haha - every second post on TFF seems to be about problems with townies, cyclists, dog walkers, trespassers etc etc The further from all that the better I reckon I couldn't cope with having non farming neighbours . . .

    i think global warming is happening, but it's not us that's doing it. It's the earths life cycle of the sun heating up the earth and the sea then creating more co2, or less when it's cooler, the delay in the sea warming or cooling is many years simple. A hell of a lot of scientists believe the...
