  1. Yeah DD...it is certainly getting quite tense....looking forward to the next episode of "Melonoma in the West"...…. Mike
  2. ..you think that was bad, Todd??!!…. I got married at nineteen yrs old...….of course it was a case of scro….. nah,,,never mind the detail..... Mike
  3. I believe Lorenzo is a carnivore...….there is no meat products in that trolley....also he , Lorenzo, has made it abundantly clear.....he despises "the herd mentality " of the shopping frenzies etc,...…...so it is not Lorenzo, standing like a "goodie two shoes ' on the marked floor space ...He would ignore all that nonsense...….My opinion Mike
  4. ...like this, Rick ??…….two further pictures.....of the various human body parts this thing ate...…(Australia)..pics a bit gruesome to put on here...especially in the "Joke Thread Mike
  5. Rusty...where is the lad's sidearm ???...….I just don't see one..otherwise it all looks good Mike
  6. Well, Dasnake, that is wonderful news....!!! of course after all the fallout and related excitement of this "Aid for the Elderly"......like you, I neither jog. play baseball or football.....nor have the ability to "tinkle the ivory's"......of course there have been numerous moments ..in my path down the journey of life …. ..particularly in those very early years....when such labour saving devices could have been useful...….however, at this point and time, I feel I am still wired up well enough to control that "Defecation on the Move " syndrome......which, I understand, can affect the elderly...….. ….So, good luck with your new found "seniors diapers freedom" keep us informed on your progress...….(.I have a friend who would like to know...….) Mike ,,,,,,maybe I should have ignored that ...and not replied...sigh.....there are several "Mikes " on the site....Why did it have to be me ????
  7. I imagine that a thoughtful , balanced appraisal of this situation will reveal a very interesting fact......whilst some folk eat banana's this young lady's novel use of these is mildly curious......…..yet she is mindful of the perils of unprotected banana intrusions...thus the protective ''skin '' remains around the banana...….You just can't be to careful , these days...... ...another great moment from Lorenzo's ""Banana Fact Portfolio"...... Mike
  8. ..to the wilds of Nebraska..I would imagine..... Mike
  9. …….again Lorenzo...…..not something that the "virile seniors " on here...need contemplate Mike
  10. .Just to reiterate Wes's comments...….there is going to be some serious strife out there...…..the Firearm and Climate change rhetoric has diminished...for the moment...….(here ) ,,,,I guess if you wanted some tips on your "quarantine'.....you could do worse than ask that elderly bloke from ,Surry BC.....He is probably knitting socks and feeding the parrot etc ...when you say "clutch"...you talking pressure plate as well …?? Good luck with that ….. Mike
  11. Gary, with great respect to the virile (??) Delta Dirt....is your above statement the source of the term...…."clutching at straws"....???!! Mike
  12. Mr Sohn......you have had countless trips 'up in the stars'....all the best for your last terrestrial trip...………. mike
  13. ….its breakfast time here , at the moment....but this BS has spooked the Station owner..to the degree I am off home .,for a few days...Our maize crop is being harvested this weekend, anyway...and we still have quite a few acres of feed to put in...……..for winter I mentioned recently how I like this site.... I look above at all the comments...… that is why I love this site !!!.... Great bunch of blokes on here...… Thankyou ….although MTO's comment was a low blow …….and this mornings lot of doom and gloom, from Govt......suggests longer lock down...…. Mike Edit...forgot to mention....one of the issues with Farming is …..get this...if there are more than Five people involved, including working wife....(we think...….but that seems hard to clarify )… there is a paper trail to be filled in...…..with Ministry Of Primary Industries...… we can't live without filling in bits of bloody paper
  14. We don't need petty criminals on this site ( )...…...but......NZ has been locked down eight days thus far......and since last Thursday, I have been full on every day , finishing about 30 acres of a 95 acres paddock , which meant stumping (Montery Pine forest , 30 yrs old, harvested 6 years ago....), pushing into one big windrow with Komatsu 'dozer....then root raking with Hyundai H210 Excavator, to clear the slash and related crap , and also oversize stones, of which there are thousands......and then the super heavy double harrows, pulled by the Komatsu crawler......next the 14 ton roller...then the direct disc drill , for more winter feed.....I finished the heavy rolling today..... Well, some freakin idiot,......some moron rang the police , and gave them a vague description and location of the ''illegal ' work.... This is the Wairau Valley......60 miles to the nearest small town...I am working 4 miles from the Rainbow Station (Ranch in US terminology ) homestead and out buildings etc......7 miles from the next Station....another huge property...….No other folk for miles around......but the Police have to investigate..the complaint ...in case I alone are being irresponsible in helping spread the freakin ' virus.... So they missed me.....there is a very long road frontage by this block......with a lot of low dense Manuka trees along the frontage.....but caught the boss at the Homestead...The Station owner tried to convince the plods of the need to put in winter feed etc etc,...the Stations direct drill has been full on , refurbishing drought ridden pastures etc. Any way I did not wish to appear, in person.....because the plods …….some of whom have great empty voids in their heads.....could probably ...tell , that I had lost that first flush of youth...indeed , could even have made the threshold of the 70's and over....who have been mandated to stay at home.....sigh..... Apparently the over 70's are the greatest at risk...….especially when living alone in the Shearers quarters and camped in a machine cab all day.... So, I am being ''investigated "...… Frankly, I doubt any more will be heard about this ridiculous BS.....I was angry....initially...then though about it...,,,it is sad, actually......the person's first clue could have been paddocks with several thousand store lambs . paddocks with ewes in...cattle.....paddocks with scorched remnants of summer brassica crops etc......It almost sounds like a farm...!!!!!! ……..and "Farming " is perfectly legal...in the 'lock down ' situation......so the Politburo say... Mike
  15. ……...adversity and farming go hand in hand....cheek to jowl...call it what you will, but as you rightly say ,Sandhiller...life just goes on, down on the farm......that's why you don't hear the old farmers whingeing when the excrement hits the fan.....and it sure is right there, right now..... Mike
