    what goes wrong in a mans mind

    On the other side of the coin I went through a bad patch about 18 months ago and was wondering what a rope would be like around my neck. I am thankful to Morticia for taking me to the Dr and getting the help I needed. Please talk to someone. Seek help. When I think back that I could have left my two girls without a father I feel sick and go cold. I don't know what else to say.

    See it all too often. Morticia and I are only together because we volunteered to work a shift to cover the funeral of one of our colleagues who had taken his life. Giles Taylor's funeral was on 1st September 2009. We got engaged on 1st September 2010 and married 1st September 2011. RIP Giles Taylor.

    84 series steering clevis

    Stupid question I know but are you using the correct O ring? I believe it is a special type. Thicker or harder or tougher than standard. I had one strip threads once. Also I believe that a certain type of locktight should be applied. but I cannot be certain on that part.

    Import Export purely hypothetical

    For some obscure reason I have an urge to import myself anew F series Farmal. Maybe an F20 or F30??????? But where would I get a complete one that would make a good project. And then I'd have to get I home. And finally I'd have to clear my customs inspector. (The Wife!!!)
  7. When I was a kid we were appa heading I to an ice age if I remember correctly. Global warming. Yes the climate is always changing. Always has! Always will! Global warming caused by man? No I don't think so.

    Ever had a small bike for a runabout?

    I understand that 3 wheelers where banned here many years ago due to the number of serious accidents with them.

    Extreme Makeover

    Are you leaving the cab off? Sorry if I missed it in the post. If so why do you take the cabs off? Are those cabs ROPS or just weather protection?

    Hay tonage per cow

    Cubic foot volume of 4ft bale is Area of end of bale = 2 x 3.142 x 4 (4 being the radius squared) = 25.136 square feet. Volume of bale = 25.136 × 4feet wide = 100.544 cubic feet. Volume of 5 foot bale = 2 x 3.142 x 6.25 = 39.275 square feet = 39.275 × 4 feet = 157.1 cubic feet in 5 foot diameter bale. I have put my workings out as I am a bit rusty. I don't think I've done that sort of sum for a good few years. So you can all check my maths 😂😂😂 Seriously I hope it is of some use in calculating volume of feed but the variables such as wastage around the edge and diffences in density of bales etc are not taken into consideration.

    Young Farmer, am I doing the right thing?

    As to whether you get involved in the family politics only you can make that decision.

    Young Farmer, am I doing the right thing?

    The main reason I am not farming today is explained in the above couple of posts. Basically I was in partnership with my father, he even told everyone I was in charge. But even at 86 he refused to let me make a decision he did not approve of. Even getting Old Man Merve (who worked for us) to undo some things. Even considering that it was a rented farm and even though I had a secure tenancy there was only so long that I personally and the business can survive in such an atmosphere. So I made the final decision and we had a sale. My father never forgave me until his dying day aged 90. That is the part I regret the most. My father was a good farmer and I have whilst sorting through paperwork found a letter from a neighbouring young farmer thanking my father for his advice and support when he was starting off and how much he was admired by him and others. Looking back I would have loved to have had him as a mentor but it was not to be. So the point of my post is the younger generation needs to be able to make their own decisions and mistakes or it isn't going to work, and they also need to realise in many cases that they (the older generation) are a source of invaluable experience and knowledge that neither generation appreciate. (I certainly didn't at the time.) But again the older generation do need to let go and allow the younger generation to do their own thing.

    Who wants to guess how many stitches ?

    I'd have thought they'd have removed more hair before stitching. Jeez you'd think this a medical forum .. 😂😂😂😂

    I thoufht 6. Morticia says 22! If you done a proper job you may need internal stitches as well as external.
