    Very interesting. I have heard that a mole always comes to the surface at 3 o’clock? The idea of letting them bleed to death is appalling. They have a higher number of red blood cells as they live in an environment with less oxygen so need the extra blood cells to give them the oxygenated blood. Tales of The River Bank - you will never kill a mole again! A good reference point for information on moles is The Guild of British Molecatchers

I used them when I farmed in France and
  11. The Memsahib has decided she would like to join me fishing which means looking forward to hours trying to teach her to cast with the strong possibility (hopefully) she will get tired and return to the gin bottle. Hence a cheap rod please? No jokes about "rods" please!
  12. This is not film related so an apology - Hugh Fearnley - Whittingstall is seen out with his chums rough shooting for the Christmas pot. He is using a Beretta O/U but in the next part he has a S/S. Continuity missing!

I was at at a shoot lunch once when someone mentioned Pringles and disappeared to his car coming back with a tube of Pringles - "Watch this" he said taking a lighter from his pocket and lighting the corner of a Pringle. Within seconds it was alight giving of the most pungent acrid smoke. I have never eaten one since!

  19. Yes - pressed the button!😧 Probably busy
