Re: PET'S CORNER

Thanks - I hadn't seen that. I've seen, and had explained, nearly all that's in the video except the stable doors. . The treadmill is impressive (and noisy) close up. We saw the favourite for last year's Ebor Handicap doing his final work last year. (came second). I had thought briefly that security...

Re: PET'S CORNER

No doors for the horses to stick their heads out of and those stables are like isolation cells! It obviously works for him but it looks cruel to me. I hadn't noticed that, and you know a great deal more about horses than I do. :smile: I'm probably visiting again in the next few weeks - I'll ask him...

I haven't done the 'due diligence' on him yet, Yes that's him - looks like he's given that presentation quite a few times, and I think he's a bit too fond of saying how expert he is though his level of detailed knowledge about WTO terms impressed me.

I like that - I called them gargoyles last week - I like that better :smile:

I'm still watching - It's all a total waste of time - literally.

I think that for all the good they are doing the opposition should get up and walk out en masse, as I think the SNP MP's did so a few weeks ago.

As for the free travel, please tell me how and I will apply. I could do with a break in Greece.
Thanks for your contribution to this deliberately provocative post. Good to get a strong reply.

Apologies for the omission - I meant to say of course. 'free bus travel' :smile:

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

There are quite a few ex- water mills round here in very flat Cambridgeshire. Looking at the current (sorry) flow of the water courses which drove them, and find it difficult to imagine that there was enough energy in them to do the job. I doubt the rivers have changed much over the period. I get to...

Really good news Ian. Well done to all involved. I'm impressed by the level of aftercare you're getting.
