Re: Shed Matters 3

https://www.oneguyfrombarlick.co.uk/app.php/gallery/image/19492/medium Today I address the beam. It's the wrong shape to be easily cleaned up in the mill so the first thing was a bit of handwork to clean the casting up, break all the edges and polish the pads where it has to be drilled. https://www...

Good idea Wendy, it's a wonderful and magisterial piece of work. I can't see it ever being bettered.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Yes of course I am, I only miss two hours with my morning sleep but it's a good and pertinent question. I probably see more than many people because I am out walking for half an hour during daylight, many don't do that in a week! Add to that the fact that I always see the dawn, from what I can see a...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

In those days farms were relatively cheap Wendy, they had been in recession for years and were eventually saved by the need for war production. The Co-op took the same path and had some big farms out behind Clitheroe, very modern and well run units, we picked their milk up as well. They sold them wh...

Brown's make and sell their own sausages and they are superb Maz.
I had steak pudding and peas for dinner and a small pork pie and peas for tea. I also slow roasted a lump of mutton rib, I shall dissect it this morning and see where we go from there!

You might be right Maz..... Yesterday was a day when anyone could get caught in a wintry shower. At 20:00 it was windy, cold but dry.

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

I agree with you P. My daughter lost her two dogs and so far hasn't done anything about replacing them. She said that it didn't feel right walking without a dog so I suggested she walk a neighbour's dog and get the advantages of the exercise without the responsibility of keeping the animal. That's y...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

I agree with you P. Even Blair sounds attractive now! Another thing that strikes me (and seems to be avoided by all parties apart from lip service) is the fact that we have got to a stage where every branch of the armed forces is crippled to the point where they are barely effective. Trump keeps goi...

Does that imply that it is a statue? Fibre glass representation of a figure in military uniform then?
