Paul, you are quite close to me, I would be willing to look after it for you, I would however require a months notice for withdrawals.

I don't feel guilty now...

I have just had a look at the Daily Telegraph article on the Heathrow protest, and read through the comments posted. It is quite staggeringly unbelievable quite how moronic, and there just isn't a kinder word for them, most of the posters are. I did have some conflict in my mind over the fact that I...

Is this the sort of thing you might find useful as a way of making a few quid from your wood?

When oil is not available, or is less available, for farming, farmers will have to go over to organic production which has lower yields per acre. More acres will be needed to feed our existing population, let alone an increasing one. So set aside will eventually have to be bought back into food pro...

I also understand that they are claiming large areas of the Moon with the intention of mining it for a wonder energy source. I wanted both of them , they seem intent on curbing my megalomania.

I have told my cat, who seems to listen, but it just washes over the dogs. They just want to kill and eat rabbits. What can you do.

In reply to Stumuz, I don't consider more schools, houses etc at all. I think it's gone way beyond looking at things that way. We should be going with what wev'e got, not building even more soon to be redundant infrastructure, and that includes road building schemes, airports, whatever. The only rea...

Yes this is true, it's horsey types that are doing it, land is going way beyond any sensible value. Last year I looked at a small farm with a completely decrepit farmhouse on it with 15 acres near Tivertion in Devon. It went for ?550,000 at auction to an outsider with - horses. It just wasn't worth ...

UK agriculture definitely isn't working to capacity. The powers that be seem much more interested in paying to get hedges cut and keeping the countryside pretty. If I believed in conspiracies.............

Hello, new boy here from Hatherleigh, West Devon

Hi, I see a few other bods localish to me here. I came across this forum recently and have spent a few days looking round. Seems to be the place for realists.
Will be back later to contribute, I have a stinking cold and think the best thing for it is a large port and brandy. Cheers.
