    Gutless Antis

    A mate of mine and his Brother who farm in our village, both received anonymous letters from, I presume the lacs. Stating that if they sign up for the cull there farms will be targeted. Now there is no cull in our area this year, but there is talk about it for next year here. Question? do they just send a letter to all the farms in the area trying to put the frighteners on them. how did they find out that our area may be rolled out or is it in the public domain. The law is an *** when faceless cowardly toss ers can target totally innocent families with a mail shot and get them worried about their and their families future, Sorry about the rant, but they will not stand in front of you so you can talk straight to them, they hide behind masks and darkness.

    Did the same to one a few years ago in a log pile. Left it to long between pouring and lighting (half gallon) I lit it from a peak, still to close the whole wood pile went up. chumps going everywhere, burnt eyebrows looked like the pond was on fire with the vapour seeping across it as well as the ground all around. won't be doing that again.

    They could just edit it themselves, but they are obviously not on. If they read this thread though I would suggest as soon as Possible.

    Does anyone happen to know if they have trouble with crayfish in the Barle just upstream from withypool. I was walking there today and saw lots of environment traps on the banks? Or were they just testing the waters as it were.

    Eye domination

    Cpsa coach at game fare gave a pair of glasses with a patch on it to a friend I went with. He was left eye dominant when he tried a few shots and got on rather well, I stress it was only an incomer and a going away bird. He enjoyed hitting a few though.

    Shed interior lining.

    Get the thinnest ply you can as that's stronger than hardboard. You can get some the same thickness as hardboard 4mm I think.

    Avon 'Skin so Soft'

    Mozzies, allegedly don't like,Garlic, Marmite, wrights coal tar soap. When we toured Scotland on the bikes we used skin so soft! it helps but nothing kept the blighters off if they came in there swarms. The thing that worked the best for me was 'Smidge' and also tried a new thing a couple of weeks ago which contained Bog Myrtle, they didn't seem to like that either
