    Retired early and spend most of my time shooting vermin over a number of farms. Crows are a favourite around here. Also shooting deer and fox a few days a week keeps me off the streets.

  1. Just need your mates to have the same app and all have a signal.
  2. These ^^^^^ or similar running on pmr 446 0.5w are the legal ones that can be used by anyone licence free. We have a few and they are great upto a couple of miles line of sight. The more powerful stuff requires a licence, not hard to get but not neccessary for most. THE "UK SIMPLE" LICENCE - "BASIC RIGHT TO USE THE MORE POWERFUL RADIOS" This licence is effectively a licence to use the more powerful radios anywhere in the United Kingdom, using a set of frequencies that are shared by all users of this licence. This licence is quick and easy to apply for, costs £75 per organisation, and is valid for five years. Simply too slow if you can get a signal.
  3. I was wearing glasses for reading. A complete pita out and about not being able to see stuff close up. Constantly reaching for the glasses to read the phone when your out on the bike, shooting or whatever. During lockdown I had replacement lenses installed. No more glasses and sight is 20/20 again. Expensive and not the most plesant procedure but hopefully long term it was worth the discomfort.

    Job advice

    It's easy to sit where you are. The world is a scary place full of fear of the unknown. If you are in a skilled area of IT and are young then there is a whole world of excitement out there. My friend taught herself a programming language got a junior job with a Uni for a few years to prove she could do the work. Just put herself on the martket through agency and has had several companies auctioning for her services. Her salary has more than doubled, with an introduction fee thrown in working for a large multi national. She has put herself on a trajectory which will put her in the top 5% salary earners very soon. You have to make your own world come alive rather than wait for it to pass you by. The world belongs to the brave.
  5. Anything on the Foleshill Road in Cov look decent?
  6. The same place your super team is. They don't exist.
  7. Not impossible at all. Just requires concentrated support and education. Takes time and a planned approach so unlikley to happen any time soon with the ***** we have running the show.
  8. Some of the posts on here are truly appalllingly. A child exploited even if by agreement is a child expolited. If this all happened in a kebab shop in Rochdale there would be outrage. This looks to be exactly the same and should be tested in court.
  9. Best get used to it. Our costs are increasing and peops are living longer at the same time the country is earning less than ever. We need to work harder, longer, smarter and more often to pay the bills we have. Add in the tripple whammy bonus of the Brexit dividend, climate change and the pandemic and we are a long way up that dark creek. Something has to give.
  10. Thats the way to go. Single lane for traffic with passing places. Wide cycle lanes with priority. Priority pedestrian crossings. Roads would be much slower, safer and healthier. Drivers would avoid city centres.
  11. We simply cannot afford our standard of living. Doe's not matter who is in power. Its easier to say yes.
  12. Make an electro magnet with a battery a strip of wire and a nail. Simples.
