Re: Please can we have some more 'funnies'?

Two women neighbours, Emma and Mel, go out one night without their husbands. They go to a restaurant for a meal and order a bottle of wine. Sitting there chatting away they order another bottle of wine, by the time the restaurant closes they've had a right skinful, pay up and stagger off home. Halfw...

Sometimes you're so glad about particular people!

Last year we didn't have an annual Show, our Show Secretary moved away and everyone else had too many prior commitments to take over. We relaunched this year, a fair few show Virgins turned up and we gained some new members. About fifteen exhibitors, some with just one entry. Our old friend John, a ...

Re: Roundup

Funny business this. ........ The use of glyphosate that troubles me is pre-harvest in cereals, to make the harvest easier by killing weeds, but also to desiccate the crop, reducing drying costs. This is common practice and surely must leave large residues.......... But on cereals, you can slop it ...

Re: New base for an old shed

I always keep shed bases off the ground, At worst I'll put a breeze block or brick plinth in a two to three foot grid. At best I'll make a foot deep hole, fill it with postcrete and insert a bit of perforated metal strapping, build off the ground two bricks high, a pair of bricks on the first layer,...
