  1. Sounds good henry d. I was last out on a charter boat 3 weeks ago and found that most of the codling had been feeding on squat lobsters, small crabs etc very few had sandeels as you would expect in summer. Bon appetit Blackpowder
  2. Saw Spitfires carrying out a mock attack at an air/classic car show, the sillouhette of the approaching plane was absolutely minimal and must have been difficult to target in real battle conditions. Blackpowder
  3. Elastic was often rubber sewing machine belts if I remember correctly. Used to help run a catty range for our Assc. at a small local country fair. Many would be punters claimed past skills in catty shooting but few lived up to it. Personally could not hit a thing with them, as other have said the Milbro thumb piece was a learning curve.

  11. Looks as if your Farmer's Markets are akin to Car Boot sales here in Scotland where people sell their unwanted possessions from their cars. Blackpowder
  12. Found Farmers Markets to be expensive at times. Blackpowder

    Once they have flown the nest a squirt of expanding foam in the nest site should block things for next year. Worked on mine anyway. Blackpowder
  14. Three generations ,my late aunt, sister and daughter share today's birthday date 13th June. Do any other forum members have a similar coincidence? Blackpowder
