    Engelbert Strauss

    Have used Englebert Strauss for years for my workwear, can't beat their stuff, great quality, quick delivery. Trousers etc expensive but last. Look good as well.

    Please Recommend Me A Strimmer / Brushcutter

    This is what I use for my garden work. http://www.mowdirect.co.uk/echo-srm-520esu-petrol-brushcutter.html But that is used every day throughout the year that's why it's £800 pound plus. For my own garden I use this http://www.abbeygardensales.co.uk/brushcutters/echo-brushcutters/showitem-C1-SRM222ES.aspx Great wee strimmer and you can get hedge trimmer attachments etc for it.

    Yes agree with Sussex. I'm a gardener and use Echo strimmers, bombproof. Stihl have really gone downhill in the last few years.

    Big Ozzy. Wheaten Whippet. Bad News

    Sorry to hear that I remember the pics when you first got him, I had to have my springer pts last week she was 13, some dogs you just bond with and are sorely missed.

    Whippet X Spaniel... Any Good?

    The first dog I had when I was 14 was a first cross springer whippet, 38 years ago! Looking back it was shite, it opened up, couldn't catch in the open and was an ugly f**ker. It was a good ferreting dog though and an excellent ratter and busher, I probably though had more fun with her than any dog I have owned since, we would walk miles for hours and it was a success if we caught a rabbit think it was a case of the blind leading the blind

    Leaking Oil Sump

    Tried to seal exact same leak on my vitara failed after a couple of weeks. New sump wasn't that bad (£)although you have to drop the cross member to get it on. Common problem apparently.

    Origin Of Black Eyed Whites

    Handles ok, as I said it seems normal except for the colour, I'll update on the forum how it works etc, needless to say it won't be staying if it doesn't work.

    Origin Of Black Eyed Whites

    Yes tiercel it was my first thought but is definitely not deaf, plays ok etc seems a normal kit except for the colouring. Waardenburgs can cause deafness but not in every case. Humans get Waardenburgs also but not accompanied by the deafness. The main clue with that kit is the four white paws. TC Interesting I didn't know that, what's the outlook for the kit then?

    Origin Of Black Eyed Whites

    This year I bred polecat to polecat and all were like this hob I kept back. Except this wee Jill. I've kept ferrets for over 35 years and never seen this. Silver body, white head. Just hopes it works as good as the parents.

    Garden Maintence Work?

    Illegal unless you have appropriate spraying tickets. Sighthound i think you only need the tickets if you have employees?? am not 100% on this but its what ive been told by a fella.I dont bother with weeds at all so am not assed lolNo, you definitely need it if your spraying for reward, Pa1 and Pa6. Some people acquired grandfather rights but this was stopped this year. Your supposed to produce your ticket when buying chemicals.
