    Every one I speak to seems rather dispondent with the job.
    Is it across the board/nationwide?
    Beef job not helping plus the uncertain period we are going through at the moment.
    I’m hoping @Cab-over Pete at the helm will steer us through (y)

    Nationwide i reckon, i often wonder how much happier we would be if we turned off all our phones, tv's , computers and didnt read the newspapers for a while either. Too much bad news 24/7 is making us glum

  10. I'm quite happy/optimistic about things.


    Don't let sh!t that you can't change get you down or take the joy out of the job. What will be will be.

    TFF is actually pretty upbeat compared to my ‘other work’ forums.
    They are just a misery of dissatisfaction and broken dreams. I actually come on TFF for light relief.

    We are kept away from too much news that is actually bad, instead, we are fed a stream of vaporous froth and sensationalism by the very devices you list. Perhaps it is that we are tiring of.

    No. We've all got more than enough to be thankful for. Leave the 'wailing and gnashing of teeth' for the miserable feckers who believe all the doom, gloom, pish and drivel written by a media circus that thrives on sowing discord.

    To be fair if the BBC stopped scaremongering for 5 minutes and the beef price lifted a bit I’d say things were quite good at the moment.

    Another cracking summer so far.

    Down to the last coppers in the jar. Biting nails waiting for harvest.

    Watching horizon “the honest supermarket” lastnight depressed the hell out of me! Labelling produce by how many times it had been sprayed, potatoes sprayed 32 times!!, really doesnt help the general public onside. When Im asked what i would of done differently in life it would be not get on a fecking tractor. With 28 years at work before retirement I’m not certain how things will pan out

    If we could just persuade the Chinese who can’t buy pork to buy British Beef I think the price would perk up a bit
