  1. Yep I use an ancient piece of checked shirt, does the job. Blackpowder
  2. Regular meal with my grandmother hard boiled eggs in white sauce with mashed spuds. Blackpowder
  3. Thanks rimfire I have passed this on so its up to them what action is taken. Blackpowder
  4. Thanks again it seems as if they are going to give up on hen keeping. Precautions taken yesterday when I went over include solar powered security light and trip wire to a bell. Sen the hole and I would say made by badgers , whether something else took the opportunity I do not know. Apparently dead birds were covered in straw in the coop. Blackpowder
  5. Thanks Kennett and Walker I shall pass that on, I dont know how they got that price as my brother in law is a pretty shrewed E Bay trader , also Brock for your PM which I have taken on board. Blackpowder
  6. They have priced it and talking of £500 Blackpowder
  7. On Wednesday night something and without a doubt it was badger or badgers broke into my sister in laws hen run and slaughtered 5 of her 8 hens. Despite defences being reinforced they were back again last night moving quite big stones to regain entry, no victims this time for a good job. A security light has no been fitted and , and trip wired bell. Anything else to be done, an electric fence is too expensive an option. This is in Scotland would I be able to get permission to create a permanent cure? Blackpowder
  8. Totally magnificent Blackpowder
  9. Well last week I spent from mid-week in my winter beating trousers. But sorely now----------------? Blackpowder
  10. Thanks for the replies I have not seen any invoices just the verbally quoted figure. I have bent to the task again and came up with £29,000 as net. Blackpowder
  11. This is for a local Church. If there is a Vat bill for £5,800 how do you calculate what the nett sum is? I've looked at various on line sites and become if it is possible even more confused. Blackpowder
  12. All the best on the day and for always. Blackpowder
  13. That is one good looking shirt to be on a scarecrow
  14. Perhaps 10 mins. Blackpowder
  15. What I mentioned earlier was salmon fly reels, I sort of dont know how many Shakespeare trout reels I have certainly one Speedex and at least three others. Blackpowder
