  1. Exceptional talent to produce work like that.
  2. Very sad state of affairs, but perhaps our police in general are more trustworthy than many others. Blackpowder
  3. About 4 years ago I saw a farmer levelling very prominent ridge and furrow in Northumberland. Blackpowder
  4. I am finding that a weed killer from Homebase is destroying what is above ground, but it still spreads underneath. A tip I was given is to mix vinegar with weed killer to make it more effective. Blackpowder
  5. Poor substitute for breakfast. Blackpowder

    Just watched a clip on Bill Milne Simon Lovat's Piper at Pegasus Bridge, live footage of Bill leading the Lovat Scouts and an interview with him in 1994 a very modest man , and a very brave man. Captured German s said they did not shoot at the piper as they thought him to be mad. Airborne troops on the wrong side of the bridge were cheered and heartened by the sound of the pipes letting them know reinforcements were approaching and held out until relieved. Blackpowder

    Three calls to mobile this weekend , two from mobiles and one from landline telling me that various sums twice £399 and once £999 was being deducted from my account and please press 1 to halt this. I did not press 1 and first call I checked with my bank and all was in order. Should I have pressed 1 what would have been the outcome. Blackpowder

  10. I was c aught in Northumbria 4 years ago and had the option of taking the speed awareness course, which cost about the same as a fine, its worth doing no points on licence and no insurance increase. The course was in a hotel virtually on the Border and took the best part of a morning with a coffee break half way. Blackpowder
  11. Nothing beats the understated elegance of Dickson R/A straight shooting and enjoy. Blackpowder
  12. Always hated maths, algebra ok with adding as long as its no more than 10 digits Blackpowder
  13. While all eyes are on this little fracas in the channel the fishing grounds in the central North Sea are being massively plundered by Danish Industrial Fishing Vessels. Nor boats as we know them but ships up to 300ft long which have denuded our waters of sandeels, to be turned into animal fodder. Bycatches have been recorded of up to 95% juvenile haddock yet this goes on unabated. Prime white fish have all but vanished from this are its simple no sandeels = no food=no fish. Blackpowder
  14. I am sure you are correct on that, spares have to be made available for a certain period. Blackpowder
  15. Well the Scottish Border voters flung it back in her face, which it seems reading some sites has upset a lot of the gullible. Personally I have always felt more akin to my Northumberland neighbours and friends than with Scots from the Central Belt. Many around here live in Scotland and work in England and vice-versa in fact our main town Berwick on Tweed is Northumbrian and English, where lots of us turn to not only for work but it is the main shopping centre for lots of us. The idea to leave a union , with a shared language and good trade relations to fall under the undemocratic boot of the EU can only be described as insane. Blackpowder
