Re: Who will it be?

You can bet your bottom groat that whoever leads the torys will have the same ruthless, selfcentred backstabbing MPs with their own agendas at heart above any other sane and honourable actions

Re: How do the crops look where you are?

Got a couple of fields of WB they discovered today, one's ready at 13% because of the chalk and the other way over near greenham common on gravel is at 11%! so we have chucked all the covers and guards on the combine and are aiming to do them on monday-Tuesday, then I can try and get the irrigation...

Re: How do the crops look where you are?

went across the track behind the farm which is around 2 of the largest fields of OSR, all some rapid hybrid stuff, haven't seen such a tall thick stand and pods aplenty here for many, many years. Luckily the precipitation here has been civilised so every thing looks hunky dory so far.

Re: Who will it be?

I have no idea. No one seems to stand out as a person to drive us forward with their vision or leadership qualities. Who ever gets in is faced with an impossible task and it looks to me like we're going to get stuffed what ever happens and who ever is in charge. I bet there were many contenders who...

Rain in Welsh Wales.
Standard.
Bin dry as a dry thing here. :o

(99.9% dry here until 5pm when there wasn't quite enough rain drops to link up on the workshop skylights, those that fell on the concrete yard evaporated as quick as they fell!!)
