Having a week in Antigua, with my brother and our wives...we don't like sitting about much, so grabbed some kayaks and had an hour or so out fishing on them... 30 minutes of that was taking up by him pulling this beauty in, Giant Trevally... gave it to the local beach lads, they were made up...what a start to the holiday!!

  4. My boys 18th last weekend so we threw a big bash up here, I'm a glutton for punishment so 3 weeks before I said to the Mrs id put an extension on my bar/man cave/glorified shed! Lol The key to this place is it hasn't cost me anything, I have scavenged and pilfered from sites to make it, starting 4 years ago when I was asked to remove a large air conditioning unit that I planned to put up as a tree house for the kids, it nearly tipped the 17m tele handler over it was so heavy so it got "dumped" on a raised platform and became the starting point of the Kev Inn .. some cladding out of the y

  5. Seeing stuff like that destroys you a bit mate, so let me give you a little bit of positive to restore your faith in the world a bit. Little lad aged 18 months lives down the way in my parish, he has something wrong with his brain and the family are having Christmas early in case he don’t make it. My postman turned up the other morning with his van absolutely freighted up, I asked the score and he said he was delivering 5000 cards to the house and another 10,000 this week. A bloke had driven 120 miles before work to put up an inflatable snow globe in the front garden so it was t

  8. 20 years ago I married my childhood sweetheart.We spent the day together at my father's river camp.It was peaceful. Spent most of the day watching ospreys hunt. And catching tiny bream. As we sat down to lunch in the camper I began to laugh as this camper had more square footage than our first house.We started our marriage in a 2 bedroom house trailer and bought an acre of land.My wife had to bottle raise a litter of pups right after our honeymoon lol.She took them to work with her in a shoebox.I remember loading a bulldog in my pickup headed to the moun

And they have all brought they're challenges and doubts but they have overcome them to a standard I was happy to own. Only pot fillers and good at nothing but OK at a few things . We have been doing the basics for a while now and other than the myxi one she's been working other aspects. Tonight we wandered out and all rabbits where flighty. What looked a great chance by the time I put the th

  19. For anyone that didn't know there was two referendums happening yesterday in the south of ireland. One was to change the constitution all together by taking mother out of it an replacing it with "durable" relationship. All the main parties an most of the rest apart from a couple of independent was in favour of it,they campaigned saying that the constitution said that mothers belong in the home which was complete an utter lies,it does not say that,an that it needs to change to show Irelands progressives,thank f**k it was whole heartily rejected by the irish people,they tried to ruin t

  21. The title is a song by the Dubliners it talks about the back breaking work and the hard drinking of Irishmen working in the UK. I was part of that world for nearly 3 years in the sixties I was employed as a general groundworks labrador building the M62. My ganger was a really hard man. He took one look at me when I arrived and said "Jesus who"s this f****n cowboy they've sent me? I think he was referring to my long hair and chip- on- the -shoulder manner. As the weeks and months went by I began to really admire him, Meahall (spelling ) was his name. He was genuine leader of me

Seems to be a big up take for threads on off grid living or self sustainability so thought I would stick it in here lads because the 'living of land and game cooking' section doesn't get much traffic We are working towards producing our own meat and veg, will take some time but oong term goals. Half a dozen young chickens at the min, another dozen in incubator (expecting 6 at most). Turkeys going in next week when these hatch.....or not CPH applied for today for the pigs that are next on list. The patch of brambles is what I have bought to put the hogs on moving forwar

  25. I got one off my pups back last Friday from a mate, I placed her with my other mate closer to home. Wind was blowing last night although very bright. We took off anyways. (Innit to win it) . The 1st half hour we seen a few in the thermal but all on the move. We eventually landed on a nice 1 for his pup and she scoobed up no issues . Mines has had a couple more runs than her sister so she had a little more complex run which she done very well. Another for her. On the way back they managed another 1 each. Chuffed watching the 2 sisters and amazing to see them 1 after

  29. Great cross for a bit of bushing. Mine isn’t a first cross and is a mixture of different terries and spaniels. 3/8 5/8. Looks more towards a patterdale though. He will push anything out of cover and ferrets too. I’d definitely get another. Touch wood he’s never dropped in. Had him around holes a lot as a pup and I think if I hadn’t have stopped him then he would go to ground.

  31. Few weeks back me and my son who is 13 went on a 2 day military themed excursion . It was run by a local ex forces guy who runs a gym locally . It was without doubt one of the best things I have done with my son . Its called "[BANNED TEXT] of passage" and works along the lines of giving you and your kid focused time together away from gadgets etc We were the first group who have done this and as this is wales it decided to piss down all day . The original idea was camping in woodland but because of the severe rain we had our base camp in the local gym which is a large tin building .

I'm not on Facebook but I often get told about the Americans with terriers arguing and self promoting.I just wanted to take time to give credit to a few real American Terriermen.Few months back I made an all day drive to pick up a pup from a man.No fancy names.Just a man who bred for what he needed.He gifted me a pup,took me hunting with his sire.Then gifted me a pieps locator,custom hunting knife,terrierbox and his library of terrier books. 8 years ago I was digging in tobacco country with some people who had a nice pair of coon tongs.I told the folks how much I liked their

I expect looking at the demographic of people on here there are more than one or two with prostate issues, I am not a fan of tablet a day for life type of medication so don’t take the tablets I was prescribed for my enlarged prostate as a consequence I am up two or three times a night for a pee and get the urges then a dribble throughout the day, well I am slowly getting into more natural remedy’s and moving away from medication so my latest success story is the humble stinging nettle I have been drinking a glass off stinger tea a day for around a month now and am actually sleeping through th

Instant regret when stepped outside the car Never made the intended destination due to how torrential the rain and ice the wind was instead walked 4 small fields . The rabbits where flighty even in those conditions. Some fantastic catches ,

This was how Bear was every single day for a month after breaking his neck then another pic of him as he is now,I never went to bed for 30 day's,I turned him over every 2 hours to prevent him getting sores but he still got them,he couldn't stand to clean or eat/drink..I fed him by hand & squirted water down his throat 6 times within every 24 hour's to prevent dehydration,from how he was here,then thought his recovery & learning him to stand & then walk to how he is today is quite remarkable really. He is disabled but he doesn't know that I don't think. He can jump anything again no

  42. Like a lot of us my permissions have seen a fairly dramatic fall in rabbit numbers but despite this there are some pockets on some very public land that seem to be immune to the disease that I feel has savaged rabbits overall. My master plan was let’s try and re populate my permissions with some of these rabbits, the issue they are crawling with people during daylight hours. So it has to be at night, I tried last year with a member of here to longnet but had limited success so I decided to try ferreting them at night. I found a spot with a long footpath running straight through the middle with

  43. If im not wrong Jaywick is officially the most deprived area in Uk.....once upon a time it was seen as cheap land for a country/coastal retreat a lot of the old Dagenham Ford workers developed it using packing materials to build the chalets etc,hence most of the street names are car related.....years ago i had a few properties along that coast but got rid of them lively when i heard it was going to become a landscape for London overspill.....nowadays it resembles a cross between The Bronx and Beirut ! What an absolute state the geezer,how long is it going to take societies to accept this
