    Yes pal but to be honest he does not age. Look at him now and when he did the TT you'd hardly believe he's aged. Leon is a hell of a nice guy as well. To be honest all the guys are mint and one of my good friends, Peter Hickman, and his mum and dad, are great pals. The whole paddock, including Guy are the best. Jok.

    Just to say that I am no stranger to speed. For my 60th birthday, I was gifted a track day at Donnington. One To One instructor and allowed flat out, no restrictions. Absolutely brilliant but when we got back I was asked to keep my leathers on and taken to the paddock garages. Within a couple of minutes a bike was heard roaring down and there was Rocket Ron Haslam on one of his race bikes. Hop on son and happy birthday. He advised me to hang on with my knees and clench tightly if and when I'd had enough. Well, 4 laps and believe you me I'd had enough. I'm a big bloke and Ron certainly is not. We did the laps mainly on the back wheel and to be honest, going round the hairpin was fckg amazing. I think we did the max coming down to Redgate corner which was brilliant. Going through Craner was awesome as I'd done it a half our earlier with my instructor . Happy days. Jok.

    Got the Honda Blackbird 1998 carb model. The last Real outing was to the BSB round in Assen and managed 172mph on the bridge road back. My brother Ian. RIP! Managed 155mph on his Pan European and our other friend did 130mph on a CBR 1000. I have just sold the Blackbird but will remember it and am still astounded by it's ability.

  8. All year round cauliflower and cabbage. Leeks but it's close to a bit late, get your ground cultivated ready for late, Nov/Dec garlic setting. Leeks , if you can get plants might be a good bet. All the climbing beans are still worth a go. Salads are obviously ongoing so get some more in. Onion sets might be worth a shout. At the worst, you risk nowt so get them in. Jok.
  9. I remember an old guy saying that if new potatoes were bigger than pigeon eggs then they were'nt new potatoes. Well, to be fair yours are. I'm guessing that you put the garlic in late last year so good crop. Everything else as normal. Good harvest and happy eating. Jok.

    Shit myself

    Some trip fella. Jok.
  11. Well son it's made me think. I get a lot of trout and why not turn it into fertiliser. Terry D, what's your thoughts? Jok.
  12. I think that is probably the loveliest knife I have seen. Nicholas, you have a real talent which has been obvious for a long time and seeing the walnut just puts it all , for me, together. Fantastic. Jok.
  13. VFR400boy. Just had a look at your pics re flesh and bone. Decided that having quite a lot of fish guts might be good for fertiliser. Never really thought about it before. When do hens die?? Lol. I have a few and never thought of them in that light. Sorry, I'm just thinking daft thoughts, and it's only 5.30pm. Jok.

    Well you guys, that was a bust. Never had to do anything like it, ever. Was having trouble in that the last three outings I had not even a pull, so, listening to the members, I have done something never done by me before. Fast sinking line. Now not only was that a newbie but watching my line coming back at me nearly vertical certainly was. I worked out that I had 127 feet of line and leader which I was leaving for 90 seconds on the watch before a really steady retrieve. The things nailed the fly and within 20 mins had my bag limit. Thing is that pulling them from so far down made me think about Nessie. These guys fought like mad and at only 2/3 lbs gave a good account of themselves. Our fishery is an old brick pit, fairly large surface area at about 3 acres plus, and we stock 5 times annually from 1.1/2 to 10 lbs mostly rainbows but quite a few blues and Browns. The last few weeks, with the heat have been quite a challenge. Next time I'll get some pics. Jok.
