    No, but you’re right it looks and feels like Soreen.

    I tried a different seed medium for the LS chilli seeds given to me. They went in about 2 weeks ago and have just started to pop through and so the cling film topper came off this morning. The key is not to over water or the seeds rot - nice and damp is fine and the clingfilm keeps the moisture in and at a constant level).

    Clingfilm is the trick (seriously). Never fails. Take the top off when they pop through.

    Grounds for divorce?

    Ever since I have known my wife (25 years or thereabouts) she has had the habit of leaving the last third of whatever drink she makes. I have lost count of the times I have suggested that she pours / makes her drink 1/3 smaller each time and then consumes 100% of that drink, rather than continually throwing 1/3 of the drinks she does make down the sink....... but oh no...... she’s ******* crackers. Over the years I reckon I could have filled an Olympic swimming pool with ‘sinked’ Pepsi and at least two Olympic swimming pools with tea.

    Washing up liquid in a weak wateres down solution - spray with one of those hand held squeeze pump sprayers. And yes, you’re right, white fly is a massive pain and chilli plants do draw them in especially inside perhaps where natural predators won’t (lady birds, wasps etc) get at them.

    Very kind squire but I’m all good - the seeds Lord S kindly sent through have now kicked on (baby cress stage) and so we’re officially out of the blocks and running. Each year I grow more than I could ever need and then give a load away (as pot plants) to friends and family to try and get them involved. I am amazed more people don’t have a stab - it’s quite amazing and rewarding. Last year half a dozen tomatoe seeds turned into 60 kg of toms. This stuff really does grow on trees 😆

    I got some seeds off the bay and went to set them out yesterday; I opened the packet and realised I’d been proper done - 6 seeds only 😝 They better all take 😆

    Sir Phillip Green Coming to His Senses?

    It’s a tricky one when assessing ‘criminality’. An uninvited slap of the bottom is ‘battery’ and a boob grab is ‘sexual assault’ and the terminology of the offence is dramatic; indeed, whilst both offences sound very serious they wouldn’t result in jail time (probably a caution at best) and yet the definitions of battery and sexual assault cover far far more serious offences which are IMHO more worthy of police investigation and time (bearing in mind the under resourced and over stretched police service we currently enjoy). It’s the focus and relentless pursuit of the rich and famous that is wearing and leads me to think that this is just a vendetta against Green (who does himself no favours with his public appearance). I still can’t get over the money spent on ‘phone hacking’ - again a hard hitting title for something that was nothing more than listening to someone else’s non pin protected voicemails. Aren’t there some grooming gangs or stabbing victims that could better use those scarce police hours and resources?

    Sir Phillip Green Coming to His Senses?

    This. ‘Ruthless businessman from another era isn’t Mother Theresa’ - it’s not news it’s gossip. Is there anyone who has done well who the media haven’t gone after in some form? Needless to say if someone wanted to touch my bottom for £1m I can confirm that I would honour the NDA and I’m available most week days and all weekends 😆

    Monteria - South of Madrid

    It’s hard to describe the scale of it - a total of 500 dogs were used during the day goes some way of painting the picture. I was shooting my Blaser with the .308 barrel in because I wanted the 5 shots. I took out 60 rounds and fired 50 over 2 days. I’ve shot the 100 yard running deer at Bisley a few times and I always got on well with it - Shooting clay rabbits is the best technique (depending on range and speed, maintained lead off the nose will get you in the right post code). At the end of the day a whole load of butchermen dressed in white overalls and white wellies descended... it’s not like the carcasses all got rolled into a ditch.

    Monteria - South of Madrid

    The red marks the tree where I was stationed, and the shot hit the pig about 10m behind where I took the photo from. The photo doesn’t show the scale or steepness of the hill - fortunately I only had to walk down that, not up it.

    Monteria - South of Madrid

    So, Day 1 I pulled peg 6 and had about 700 metres to cover. My shot of that day was a running boar freehand at 163 m (verified with a rangefinder by a nice Norwegian called Thorne).

    Cheers ears - I’m having a play now.
  14. So, I was lucky enough to get invited to the Las Juntas Monteria (couple of hours south of Madrid). 2 days, 1 very long drive each day (over 500 hectares) and approximately 400 beasts (all types of deer, mouflon and boar). I’ll try and get some photos up - does anyone know how to reduce the MB size of an iPhone photo? Is there an app?
