    Jack's game

    Just watched several episodes of "Jack's game on YouTube.Several things spring to mind.I do remember watching them on tv years ago when I was a youth. 1.Imagine something like that on normal TV now. 2.Life seemed much more simpler then. 3.Seems to be that country pursuits were more accepted as the norm. Maybe rose tinted glasses but it's how I remember growing up no one abusing people going about lawful activity. Anyone suggest any more YouTube stuff in a similar vein.

    parking tickets

    Fight it for the cost of a stamp or an e mail. Get a letter or e mail off to PALS and one to the chief exec.(important) You need to include details of your appointment and details of your blue badge and car. Also make the point of the cost to the nhs of not showing up for an appointment.Stating that there were no spaces but as you were on the site and struggling to park you did not want to miss your appointment even though you had left yourself enough time.mention any mobility issues you have and if you had been waiting a long time for the appointment to come through. Good luck

    VW Touareg

    Daughter has one. It's fairly thirsty.Access to some parts of the engine is difficult without removing lots of bits. I like it though,as for serious off road not sure but it copes well with muddy tracks and fields.

    More problems for wildfowlers in Scotland

    Surely with declining budgets you would not decrease the permits as they equate to paying into the local economy in many ways overnight stays being one example. I hope some common sense will come but I sadly doubt it.Further restrictions could follow over the next few years.

    That is where the market would be.

    Shed interior lining.

    Mine were in the garage no insulation though. They bred well.Good ventilation with no draughts is vital. Wooden sheds are quite warm.
