I think combines were introduced earlier than 1956, in so much as an old man I worked with in 1965-when he was in his early 60's-had done Australia as a young man and had driven a combine harvester wh ...

I am as I said a hoarder, and am currently living in corridors, as all my rooms are rather full of stuff, I will get there sometime. As soon as I retire I will have to think a bit as to how to rearran ...

I didn't realise the food bank did baby clothes as well as food, JL, MR. Seems a good idea, as many of the withouts would appreciate nappies and the like I am sure. It seems wrong that there are so ma ...

There is a lot I have read and can't remember-seems an age since I was here! We seem to be in a cool and wet period, although Saturday at the barn was ok. We think we may have to leave the next tree s ...
