  1. Lifted from the farming forum; Anyone who has a problem with the activities of Chris Packham and his team of eco-bullies (and the BBC) now has an opportunity to help put them in his place. I feel I cannot complain about him if I don't take part in this by helping out with the money.There is a "crowd justice funder" to help with the legal costs of bringing him to heel at https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/t...EdUB8-cR0KTBETrkiwtMoLjS0CibxhVaLKrmOM-t5dsXIArticles that generated the case as follows - good reads in their own right.https://countrysquire.co.uk/2021/06/01/statement-questions-for-packham/https://countrysquire.co.uk/2021/09/10/chris-packham-serial-liar/ Reading on there the crowdfunding is nearly half way to the £20k target.
  2. My 20bore broke a piston lug shortly after I bought it and amazingly it still cycled, I ordered a 4 lug one from the estore which is much more robust.
  3. Absolutely, another one I watched recently is 'The Last Mountain' where the mother and son are both climbers with the inevitable, tragic outcome. Seeing the Husband/Father and Daughter dealing with the aftermath is incredibly sad.
  4. I watched it and was conflicted like you guys. In order to make a name for themselves they seem to push further and further in pursuit of new feats, whilst having little regard for their loved ones. Whilst I enjoy watching and read about their exploits the fact that they're at the whim of the mountain leaves too larger element to luck rather than judgement, especially when climbing with zero protection. Too often it ends in tragedy.
  5. I put some up when my house was renovated. The government has some guidance in the link below; https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/domestic-cctv-using-cctv-systems-on-your-property/domestic-cctv-using-cctv-systems-on-your-property I also have a small window sticker, which i dont believe is a requirement but the installer advised me to add it.
  6. @Mungler Here's another very good True Crime Podcast on BBC Sounds, I found The missing Crypto Queen and the one below over the festive period. It's called the Lazarus Heist and has lots interesting information on North Korean cybercrime, its begins with how they knocked Sony Pictures over. “Almost a perfect crime.” The hacking ring and an attempt to steal a billion dollars. Investigators blame North Korea. Pyongyang denies involvement. The story begins in Hollywood. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w13xtvg9/episodes/downloads
  7. The BBC have produced a really good podcast on this Ponzi scheme, The Missing Cryptoqueenm, Dr Ruja Ignatova persuaded millions to join her financial revolution. Then she disappeared. Why? Jamie Bartlett presents a story of greed, deceit and herd madness. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/brand/p07nkd84
  8. Yes the last few months have been pretty draining on the work front. I work in printing and the real problems started when one of Europes largest paper manufacturers announced in April that they were pulling out of the market which caused a run on the other manufacturers stocks, lead times when out and prices increased. Work suddenly picked up from H2, taking in lots of orders, but we're struggling with availability of materials, vehicles to move product, casual and skilled labour. Our energy costs have increased nearly fivefold since January which is being passed back to customers now by way of a surcharge, if it's not agreed prior to production we don't produce the job, any future work is being taken on subject to final material and production price at a time of production. We can't offer any forward visibility of pricing, very draining circumstances to operate in. I try to finish each day with fewer challenges than I started with, that and I accept that I try my best, if that's not good enough for other people so be it.
  9. I completely agree. I enjoy refreshments during the day as much as anyone but it shouldn't be to the determent of the shooting part.
  10. For me it's fairly straight forward in that the vast majority to shooters over estimate range and more importantly their ability. (me included) As if using more choke with a heavier payload makes up for the lack of the latter. As @JohnfromUK says a bird at 25 to 35 yards will more that likely be comfortably despatched with little if any choke and a moderate payload. From my personal experience on Essex 'normal farm shoot style' ranges it's perfectly adequate, dead is dead with very few wounded, therefore I don't see the need to use a heavier load or tighter chokes, it works.
  11. I agree with this last sentence completely, I use the two most open chokes that came with my 20b Beretta for all my shooting. With 26gm of No7 it works really well.
  12. Another great result for Cav yesterday, I bet he never thought he's be here are pretty much being left without a ride last season. Looks a tough day on paper today with two ascents of Mont Ventoux, hopefully Ineos will try and put Pogacar on back foot and isolate him early doors, although it seems like he uses their train for his own good and that's unlikely to happen. Carapaz looks like the only GC rider prepared to have a go at the moment and hopefully he will. The one benefit of working from home is the coverage will be on from the go.
  13. The cartridge manufacturers still have a great deal of work to do. I believe Eley are the only manufacturer making non toxic bio wadded 20bore shell. Everything else in steel seems to be plastic wadded. I’ll be carrying on with fibre wadded lead until its no longer available or illegal gal to do so.
  14. Sorry, I meant with reference to cartridges loaded with steel. I believe they’re pretty much all plastic wads. I use exclusively fibre at the moment. I’m thinking more in relation to non lead loadings of which the majority are plastic wads.
