    Here’s mine they’ve had a new lid today, well tiles anyway. They never did like like the smooth ones and I had some left over from the house so my mate got his lads to throw them on so all matching with the house roof now. Sleep boxes are breeze blocked at back of kennel with a lift up lid. Insulated floor with thermaboard then a 3ml plastic wipe clean floor but they got Astro turf thermal blankets and a heat lamp if needed . Better heating than me at the minute I got no heating downstairs

    Do we think Trump is a bit nuts when in actual fact he is talking total sense ? We have been fed madness for so many years that now we think normal is weird ?

    I watched the trump election live in the company of Americans and everyone of them was over the moon When he hit 270 since then I’ve had a massive interest in the politics of the United States and it’s absolutely amazing to me the bias against and for him across the huge networks . I’m not American , I’m British but I firmly believe that ifhilary had served it would have affected my situation a lot more as I think I would have been Somewhere with work. when I see the hysteria of blm , the liberals I thank god i was born a lad from the north f England. This debate is mainstream news, it huge the furore caused when in reality it’s pieces of shit like piers Morgan, susannah Reid , guru Murphy etc who are peddling this shite to the masses to keep the country of the opinion that this man is a clown , he doesn’t know what he’s doing , he’s racist , sexist, lazy, (add your own idiom here) we are mugs to believe that anyone is making a go of things in this world in its current climate . if trump does two terms and I think he will , I cannot wait to read the fall out . these people aren’t like you and I, they live in a world of fakery , of their own making of denial,

    That looks just like the little farm pit l've been fishing this Summer. 25yards wide,40yards long and about 7 feet deep in places. Local wisdom has it that the pond was drained and the fish removed many years ago but it had been known as The Tench Pond. I started fishing it after spotting a shoal of little rudd. It was hard going , even these tiddlers were very wary. Only after a few visits ,including some biteless blanks, did it slowly unlock its secrets...

    Having a bit of a sort out the other day and found this little radio. 22 years ago myself and half a million others converged on London to let our voices be heard to try and stop the ban on fox hunting. It didn’t work and the BBC and mainstream media hardly covered what was and is the largest demonstration in this country’s history. It was a peaceful event with no looting or bad behaviour. But what did the media show ?A handful of hippies shouting at us . Bloody typical. Anyway this little radio was given to loads of us and was supposed to broadcast a special March radio program but it got sabotaged and jammed , by the unwashed I’m going to keep it safe , as it’s a bit of a souvenir from a special day .

    Just a few pics off my phone, a few miles locally this morning with the hounds behind the bicycle and then back home for a cool off and a foot bath in the stream before breakfast.

    When Trump was asked to condemn right wing militias in last nights Presidential debate, he said ; "Proud Boys, stand back, and stand by" ! I took that to mean " let the left wing start it, but be ready to finish it " " The left are screaming about it, but I bet a lot of blue collar Americans are nodding their heads ! Cheers.

    Numbers 112 and 113 were hard won to be honest .The full moon dosnt best work with the hunter I’ve found but these things have to eat and both eventually came to a deer head I had staked out .A small shoot near me with no keeper to speak of just a farmer feeding birds having trouble with a few foxes taking pheasants first light .Somebody else had apparently had a go but without success .Been on my list for a while but time and other commitments meant it had to take a back seat . The shoot borders a large estate where they hammer the foxes incessantly so I’m guessing these foxes had seen and heard most calls ,distractions but as said they still have to eat . Ive been baiting a field for a few nights with whatever I had handy ,deer head legs and rabbits and everything going . Sat on a bank about 150 from the bait and waited ,full moon probably glinting on the old bald head Waited and waited until a fox came into the field at 11.45 ,I was looking at a whatapp sent and happened to look up . No thermal could see him plainly at 100 .Rifle already on sticks and pointing that way so no needless shuffling .No IR just the pard 007 and down it goes ,a dog .Long wait again and about 2 hours later ,same route in comes another .This one wasn’t for standing still long but ran straight to the bait and tried to pick it up .Thermal this time as it was in the shadows .Failing to carry it ,it tried to bury it there on the spot but a .223 stopped that abruptly . A vixen .

    At some point in recent history the media stopped employing news reporters and started employing news commentators.... there's a very significant difference between the two. Proper investigative journo's who risk life and limb to out corruption and injustice and tell the stories of little known heroes are cornerstones of democracy, but these days society would rather just listen to some polished piece of shit who's never left their safe little box spout their comforting opinions.

    I was out topping up hoppers just now . Next to one of my covers was a couple with two dogs off the lead , having a picnic. On inspection of the small wood , which is normally full of pheasants, I noticed it was empty. My blood pressure was rising and I approached the couple and in as polite a manner as I could muster I informed them that they were a long way from the footpath, and it wasn’t a picnic area . They said ,” yeah , yeah , whatever, we will finish our food and then we will go “, I asked them to go now please , no response. Ok then I thought , see how you like this , I went around the corner where there were about 40 hungry young bullocks, a quick shake of the a feed bag got their attention, a couple started to trot towards me followed by a few more , then they all started to run , following the Kawasaki mule at full tilt , straight towards the open mouthed picnickers. Never seen anyone move so quick . Aah , it’s the little victory’s

    Old couple in heaven The couple were 85 years old and had been married for sixty years. Though they were far from rich, they managed to get by because they watched their pennies. Though not young, they were both in very good health, largely due to the wife’s insistence on healthy foods and exercise for the last decade. One day, their good health didn’t help when they went on a rare vacation and their plane crashed, sending them off to Heaven. They reached the pearly gates, and St.. Peter escorted them inside. He took them to a beautiful mansion, furnished in gold and fine silks, with a fully stocked kitchen and a waterfall in the master bath. A maid could be seen hanging their favourite clothes in the closet. They gasped in astonishment when he said, ‘Welcome to Heaven. This will be your home now.’ The old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. ‘Why, nothing,’ Peter replied, ‘remember, this is your reward in Heaven.’ The old man looked out the window and right there he saw a championship golf course, finer and more beautiful than any ever built on Earth.. ‘What are the greens fees?,’ grumbled the old man. ‘This is heaven,’ St. Peter replied. ‘You can play for free, every day.’ Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch, with every imaginable cuisine laid out before them, from seafood to steaks to exotic deserts, free flowing beverages. ‘Don’t even ask,’ said St. Peter to the man. This is Heaven, it is all free for you to enjoy.’ The old man looked around and glanced nervously at his wife. ‘Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol foods and the decaffeinated tea?,’ he asked. That’s the best part,’ St. Peter replied. ‘You can eat and drink as much as you like of whatever you like and you will never get fat or sick. This is Heaven!’ The old man pushed, ‘No gym to work out at?’ ‘Not unless you want to,’ was the answer. ‘No testing my sugar or blood pressure or…’ ‘Never again. All you do here is enjoy yourself.’ The old man glared at his wife and said, ‘You and your f***ing bran Flakes. We could have been here ten years ago!!.

    I’ve had to concede defeat. Despite my best combing and styling ( think Trump , but not quite) my scalp was clearly visible . So now I sit on a chair in the back garden , with a sheet wrapped around me , while my daughter hacks away with the dog grooming clippers , it’s a pathetic, sad sight of a defeated man .

    Golden Syrup: A man with a completely bald head and only one leg is invited to a Xmas fancy dress party. He doesn't know what to wear to hide his head and his wooden leg, so he writes to a fancy dress company to explain his problem. A few days later he receives a parcel with a note: Dear Sir, Please find enclosed a Pirate's outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald head and with your wooden leg you will be just right as a Pirate. The man is offended that the outfit emphasizes his disability, so he writes a letter of complaint. A week passes and he receives another parcel and note. Dear Sir, Sorry about the previous parcel. Please find enclosed a monk's habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and with your bald head you will really look the part. The man is really incandescent with rage now, because the company has gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to drawing attention to his bald head. So he writes a really strong letter of complaint. A few days later he gets a very small parcel from the company with the accompanying letter: Dear Sir, Please find enclosed a tin of Golden Syrup. We suggest you pour the tin of Golden Syrup over your bald head, let it harden, then stick your wooden leg up your arse and go as a toffee apple.... Atb j

    I think I’ve been around the houses with this . I talked to a mate who reloads and he was going on about how important it was to know where your lands were and how critical it was to be a certain distance from the lands . I know Steve Bowers (rifle maker) and had a chat to him and he said come over to the workshop and I will do some measurements and you will have some bullets to use as a guide . The bullets stick out a mile and don’t work in the magazine. I am happy with the bullets I’ve been producing with the C.O.A.L to be honest, so I’m just going to stick to that . I am not a competitive shooter, my mate has I think just tried to look clever and confuse me . I do now have a better understanding of seating depth and I’ve learnt a new word OGIVES, something I didn’t know before , so not a complete waste of time . The next time someone wants to talk about lands , ogives, seating depth , I will be able to ....... tell them to shut the f@ck up , stop confusing me !!! My brains about to explode!!!

    My feeling is , that a breeding female would have made her presence felt or attacked a person or dog . Plus I thought it was an interesting, anecdotal story, roughly on the same lines as this thread that I thought people reading this might find mildly interesting .

    Got my mate a spotter like yours sd, he’s a lot like you, known him since school and he picks up a big lamp and shotgun over the .223 he has 90% of the time! I don’t know how he dose it, we split up when out and have a different view on things but both get results. Three outings on the bounce the other week

    Whilst typing this, I can hear the sound of several thousand greys flying over the cottage and dropping in on a stubble field just 300yds away but not on my land. There are now about 10k greys and a number of canadas all around the village edges with a thousand or so just starting to drop on one of our fields so we are giving them a day or two to settle and number of others will follow. Deeks out of the loft, pity they are all canada deeks but better than nothing (might try to paint them at some stage) and put up a hide for the duration. Fingers crossed and we do need luck as there are so many stubble fields which are only a few minutes from the River Humber, they are spoilt for choice. Last year we had huge numbers around but none on our perms although we missed out on one perm as the geese were on the potatoes but we didn't know as it is an area that normally is a waste of time, just shows you cannot assume anything.

    I think trump will have a landslide victory. The mainstream media is totally biased. Anyone with an ounce of intelligence can see the BS they are peddling. I was in the States earlier in the year. Nearly every American I got chatting to was interested to hear my thoughts on Trump . When I told them I thought he was a better choice than Hilary they nearly all said , “we voted for Trump , but we don’t tell anybody that “ . The polls don’t question the average low earning American, and people who do vote Trump are kind of embarrassed to admit it . Also he is the guy who is tough on law and order , he is against sending troops out to foreign conflicts, medicines are more available to the average American. His policies have substance, while the democrats don’t really have and policies, other than “ we aren’t Trump”.

    Hoping to be moving soon and have already got myself a little doer upper boat that I will be renovating through the winter ready to sell in spring /summer, as long as all goes well should make decent money on it so will buy another at the end of the summer and renovate through the winter, more interested in trying to earn 6 to 12 months money in one hit rather than chasing as when your working all day every day you are to busy to earn the big money, so a more leisurely approach with bigger rewards is what I,m looking for, buying up camper vans in winter is another good little earner I,ve dabbled with so recon will be getting one or two of them as well nearer to Christmas when the prices are on there arse and get them all up and ready to sell in summer, exciting times ahead

    Trump would have my vote if I was living in America. What is the alternative.... Biden ? A man who sniffs children’s hair , and can’t remember what day it is . The man is clearly struggling with some sort of dementia. Why the hell the democrats thought he would be a good candidate is beyond me . They have all but handed Trump a second term . In the U.K. we need to hope Trump does get in because the democrats hate Brexit Britain.

    Max you don't half come across as some numpty. I'm 69 pretty active BUT I have blood pressure and take medication so it's alright for me to die? Oh he underlying problems. It's okay for young people ie students at university to have house party's for all those muppets in York to have a street party, to ignore social distancing.To catch the virus and spread it about with their selfish attitude because they won't die. It's up to me Max to protect myself no responsibility of the young people who don't give a f**k. FFS Cheers Arry

    Seems to be a lot of its "only killing compromised people" type statements, is it OK for them to die? Pretty much everyone over 60 is compromised to a degree and certainly those over 70. If you're being treated for cancer with an expectation to make a recovery and live another 10 or 20 years but die as your compromised at that point in your life is that OK? Perhaps you have a history of smoking and some chronic lung problems but have a life expectancy of another 15 years but get covid and die why is that different from anyone else?

    Plaque off, available here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ProDen-Plaque-Off-Food-Supplement/dp/B0047VWPNI/ref=sr_1_5?adgrpid=55685782240&dchild=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwtsv7BRCmARIsANu-CQdioM0ctfYW6BDlhYhS5pXgOYny5bkjPoh75FBpykrV1SGvv8NMNzMaAvO9EALw_wcB&hvadid=259001158452&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9044886&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=17308973695246673279&hvtargid=kwd-295851421390&hydadcr=18068_1769632&keywords=plaque+off+for+dogs&qid=1601366601&sr=8-5&tag=googhydr-21 I first heard of this when I saw a 12 year old Collie with immaculate teeth, and it really does work. My vet says that lurchers and sighthounds seem to be particularly prone to getting plaque on their teeth, which is surprising as they have long jaws with plenty of room between the teeth. Her conclusion is that this sort of dog creates much less saliva than most other types/breeds (drier mouths), and I have to agree with her. The only lurcher I had which never needed any tooth cleaning had a much wetter mouth than most, and she never got any plaque on her teeth, even at age 13.
