  1. Sorry for changing the title and all was trying to do something editing wise. But yeah me and the lady finally tied the knot today....well yesterday lol. Guess it was good ,she was happy , said she got the perfect princess moment and all the womanly stuff they like. I don't puke or pass out , and my grandma didn't go on a racist tirade so I'll say it all ended up pretty good. Would post pictures but all the ones I got sent make me look even more like a 12yr old then usual ( don't help the suit she picked made me look like a damn penguin and she wore 5" heels that put her a extra few inche

  2. I’d rather poke my eyes out with a cocktail stick REFORM all the way Labour & Conservatives are the same and it’s good to see Nigel Farage Giving both party’s grief, three weeks to go and I reckon he’s got a lot more tricks up his sleeve, he’s a clever bloke.

Going by the adds I'm getting on here I'm expecting some aftershave and a t-shirt!!

  6. Opening up a new topic, I think. Friend of mine was having a chat. Amongst other things he had just shot 2 Jays. Now in my earlier days making or tying my own flies was the way to go. He said that from now on I could have any wings. SO. Is this of interest to anyone? Also, when I was making walking sticks, my signature was crossed jay feathers on the crook. Jok.

  7. Voted Conservative all my life, never again, all they've done is be a whipping boy for the WEF and rob us blind. Eighty seat majority and they still didn't overture the BS hunting ban, Reform this time, at least I'll feel like I've tried to make a difference.

  12. Looks to be, Collateral Ligament Damage..... We have experienced this malady with several of our lurcher hybrids, and as such, it can effect the real fast 'up and at' them' types, and also the slower, heavier herding based lurchers. It is invariably caused by the dog turning quickly on wet grass or sometimes sand.... I remember on at least two occasions , taking my collie hybrids to a guy who is arguable one of the best Vets with running dogs in the UK ( a superb guy who allowed a bit of foolishness to mar his otherwise excellent career, but still someone who I would trust wit

  18. At 5 month's old & again at 11 year's old,when out & about he has always been one for just taking a seat & surveying the area around him,scanning for the slightest movement,his daughter Rose is exactly the same,even when thing's are 'busy' they will still find the time to sit,weigh up the situation before making their next move..I often call them 'thick,backward & plenty more expletives' but i guess they are far more intelligent than I & know more about the game than i do.

  24. It's like I said to my grandparents yesterday both in there late 80s. Labour & Tory's are both the same now. Many of them rubbed shoulders in university most probably went out drinking together. " They only care about financial gain not the british general public. But you know what the old generation are like see the good don't see the bad. These parties that are willing to let the migrants stay. Must be getting a payout on the ush ush. Because how can an English man sit at that bench knowing that women & young teen girls & kids are getting raped & groomed by these b*****ds.

  25. Yes, I have seen a number of Collie x labs, who have been trained to do a huge number of tasks, and they do them very well. Without doubt, all I have met have had an outstanding temperament. A couple that spring to mind were under my ownership & used within a pig dog pack. Scamp, was my lead or main dog. He had a very good tracking nose and would go some distance to find a pig, once he had it cornered or stopped he would stand-off and use his huge barrel bark to signal where he was. He was no hero & would bail a 30lb piglet all day long , but he had enough bite and balance to leave a

The EU will send the Germans in to sort it out, the French will ask us to save them, (history repeating itself) , and, depending if Starmer or Sunak in charge we will spend billions defending the French , but if Farage is in charge, he will tell them to go f**k themselves, they should have listened !

Done the lakes loads as a kid,it was ok.Going to just camp totally,don’t need accommodation when it’s on my back,plus there’s loads of places to just pitch a tent where there’s no-one,did loads of this type of thing in the past,even camped out in remote china and pakistan.I was on the trek twice last year both times when I had to visit Geneva here’s one of the villages the trail goes through,three countries in 10 days is average.

  32. Thanks for that post toolebox that's really interesting. My dog was a unplanned cross, a true mongrel. However he has a cracking temperament, he loves people, and has a fan club in the village who are very fond of him! On top of that i have been really surprised as to how he has taken to gun dog work, he loves it, he sees the gun and cannot wait to get out to the field. His bark however....yes it is pretty impressive! Basically he's a pet dog, who does enough gun dog work to allow his master to go rough shooting and wildfowling! As an aside a good friend of mine sadly no longer with us, was a

Doing it in august mate,flights booked to Canada for September so august is TMB trek,the boots fit and lace like a glove.I rented kit in Kathmandu the last time I was in Nepal so yes,it makes sense to rent in Chamonix the beginning and end of the Mont Blanc loop,just need to buy a sleeping bag liner and good to go. https://blog.hiiker.app/2020/02/23/tour-du-mont-blanc-app/#:~:text=The%20Hiiker%20app%20has%20the,you%20to%20some%20historic%20sites!

  34. Those boots look the business Mac! I'd definitely be wearing those around the house to break them in! Lol.. Looking forward to seeing your pics from this trip so keep us posted and let us know how you get on. Great idea on bag and tent rental too.. saves you being lumbered with gear you might not use again after. When do you start mate?

  35. just been to Snow & Rock,starting to get kit for my TMB trek,found a shop in Chamonix for tent,sleeping bag rental so just flying to Geneva with hand carry.Tried the boots on the rock-slope instore,good grip on irregular rocks,the first Meindl review mentions the Mont Blanc trek so getting the Meindl,the in store rock-slope isn’t like a real deal alpine rock slope but the boots were a good fit and have great soles so they should be fine.

  37. I recently dug out my first ever dslr camera,it dates back from 2005,you can pick these up on eBay nowadays for about £50 max with a lens or two included. I'm surprised the battery held some charge but to be honest I've used the camera for a number of days now & it's still going strong on that initial charge. These are a few I've taken with it the past few day's,nowadays everyone is onto the mirrorless camera's & before those dslrs with a CMOS sensor,this old Olympus has a Kodak CCD sensor in it which comes from the earlier film camera's. Personally I like the colours etc that come str

  38. That's a common cross here in NZ, at times it's a lab x heading dog or with a hunt away. It's excepted by most that when the very first border collies arrived in NZ they were mated with labs as the landowners were looking for a big steady dog with a huge bark and can they bark it's huge in the deep tone and volume. The bigger types can be found on the north island, huge raw-boned things that are on the edge of real ugly. Most heading dogs seem to be a lot smarter as a hunt away, and come in 5 points white, that's all 4 legs, chest, tip of the tail, nose and collar, they can be tri colour with

I gave up my sponsorship/ambassador status wit hSony to get sponsored by Fujifilm ( I have the GFX 100ii Medium format series now and the Xh2 ) and the colours nad performance of the fujifilm stuff is unreal. Granted I don't use it for action but the xh2s is fast for sport stuff and the running dogs and the lenses are quite light. I wouldn't fancy lugging my 15k medium format kit up a mountain though. I'll stick to warm studios and the odd outdoor shoot

But mam found a few dried out behind radiators, she was not happy.The last place I would have expected them to head to.

Totally agree mate, the daily Mail wouldn’t exist without people thinking and feeing that animosity but imho it’s animosity directed at the wrong person and easy target I read a job advert the other day for a position in my old area, it was for a forklift driver….£27,000 a year. My old area is one of those post industrial commuter towns, the worst air quality in Britain is our little claim to fame, council housing built after the war, some older places from the original village but solid working class…..not in the least bit flash.

  46. That's kind of my point though. The bloke with the 3 bed semi and steady job has worked for that and will feel animosity against the family up the road who haven't worked a day in their life, claim all the benefits under the sun and then have new windows installed at the cost of him, the tax payer. I think its just to easy to blame the government on this one some people just don't want to work and need to take responsibility for themselves and not expect others to bail them out.
