    Prescription cannabis ?

    Not necessarily the case: https://www.gwpharm.com/healthcare-professionals/sativex®-delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol-and-cannabidiol-eu-nabiximols-usa Since CBD oil is now readily available in the UK we can assume that those going to the trouble of importing product from Canada etc at great expense feel they require the "good stuff".

    thinking of getting a pup but what

    Mac, my previous lab was 11 or 12 when he went overnight from a manic Frisbee chaser to a whimpering wreck who could barely move without yelping in pain. The vet said it was most likely arthritis and put him on steroids and pain killers and he recovered to the point that he still enjoyed life for another couple of years at his own pace without further treatment until the cancer got him. The insurance company still got the better end of the deal...

    VW claim

    Some discussion on the VW "scandal" I found interesting: https://www.ericpetersautos.com/2015/09/23/crucified-by-uncle/ https://www.ericpetersautos.com/2016/06/21/measuring-cost-vw-cheating-scandal-far/ https://www.ericpetersautos.com/2017/07/25/vw-exec-plead-guilty-non-crime-faces-169-years/

    My daughter uses CBD Brothers Blue Edition to apparent good effect for her epilepsy ~£130 for a 100ml bottle. From the leaflet that came with it I worked out a 1ml dose gives 50mg of CBD so I guess that equates to 5% I agree with SSS above that quality is what matters. Since it's a largely unregulated market there are undoubtedly plenty of people jumping on the bandwagon with me too products which may not actually have much of the good stuff in them. You can buy synthetic CBD in crystal form from China, dissolve it in some hemp oil and Bob's your uncle - but maybe not the same properties as something cold pressed from the plant and including some traces of other possibly helpful compounds (entourage effect).

    Tommy Robinson

    Absolutely, As long as we also have equal freedom of speech for those who would inform us of what life would be like under sharia law. Ideally followed by a one-time national referendum as to whether any such parallel legal system should be allowed to exist anywhere in the UK.
  8. Thanks Guys, I will probably sign up for a lesson or two at some point & would be happy to join in fun days when I'm free on the appropriate day. Fifegun has invited me to join him at Cluny and I intend to do so soon. Cheers Mike
  9. Hi, Just recently got my SGC through and bought my first gun. Looking to get started on the clays and would like to go round my first time with someone who can show me the ropes. Coffee and scones are on me afterwards. Cheers Mike

    4" Roller Decorators/Anyone Help Please?

    I used the little rollers meant for painting radiators. They were just the right size for following the contours of the panels and I don't recall any issues with depositing hairs. Cheers Mike

    well I guess you could blame the planning dept too though it would have been nice if Aldi did their sums before wreaking their havoc on our environs

    "If they are mature trees they probably need thinning and selling off for lumber." They weren't "thinned" - every last one was chopped down and now we have an acre or so of abandoned bare ground instead.

    And now the time is near

    I've never been keen on the killing aspect of shooting. Yet there's a sense of purpose, maybe a connection with our hunter gatherer past, in walking the land with a gun that's just missing from target shooting. I hate the thought that I might cause unnecessary suffering to any living creature but realise that our quarry doesn't generally end its natural life in a care home side-room surrounded by family - death by predator, starvation or disease awaits the ones that get away. At the end of the day we are just another predator - except we have the capacity for empathy even as we carry out the task we have volunteered to do - maybe it's the ones who lack that empathy who should be encouraged to find another pastime.
