You need to spend an afternoon chatting with Sally's Uncle Joe. Gayle man born and bred. Only has fields now and the odd barn or two and no beasts but he keeps his hand in helping his mate out who has, he's 94 now and still checks his fields on the fell regularly.

Here we are on an evening stroll over to Burtersett

I think that's what's known as a 'wicked sense of humour' ? Not a chance. The B&B maybe. :smile:

I worried about those as well Wendy. Much as I love the programme, I’ve never seen a shepherdess tending sheep dressed and made up as much as she is.But she is doing an excellent job of bringing up those kiddies.

Indeed, here is his Tic Tac Toe grid, carved in the bridge parapet over Gayle beck with a nail when he was a lad.

Good pic, I can see me using my crook one of these days. Very handy for walking with and particularly having a lean!
I enjoyed a couple of episodes of 'Strike' but have the Yorkshire Farm noted for future viewing on catch up. Susan had been banging on about it.
David, when you see a farming activity on an upland farm that looks 'inefficient' there is usually a good reason for it. Tradition and experience have a lot going for them.

Fair enough. Wendyf explained the sheep breed aspect of it all. Look here - Hill farming

I had guessed subsidies played a big part in the job, and it seems very complicated. I expect Brexit will make a big change, but farmers and landowners are quite skilled at looking after their interests. :smile: l

It's what Joe described it as and I took it to be a variant of noughts and crosses. He said the game was played with pebbles as markers. Can't find a reference for Tic Tac Toe other than noughts and crosses but the grid does comply with one for Three Men's Morris which is very similar in play

Ah I see - thanks. I think I just about recall that Tic Tac Toe is Americanese for noughts and crosses though the first image to come to mind is of fruit machine symbols.

" If played optimally by both players, the game always ends in a draw, making tic-tac-toe a futile game."

Same source says the game is best for young children who haven't worked that out yet. Into the category I'd add drunk squaddies late at night, in Bugis Street, who never ever won at ten cents a game against the local kids. :laugh5:

Did you watch 'A suitable Boy' ? It's a drama so I just glanced at it. I look occasionally at the real thing - far more interesting. :smile: Grooms Wanted

You do find some esoteric sites David! A different and at times desperate world. I'm thinking of the 40 year old divorcee with no issue.
I polished off the last two Cormoran Strike films.

No that's today's paper. What's different or desperate about earning £39,000 pa as a nurse in London?

Have a go. Many say caste is no barrier and having your own Ashram must be a plus. I'm surprised no one specifies - 'must have own teeth' :laugh5:

It wasn't quite what I was expecting. - black and white - but mercifully only thirty minutes. Not the highest 'production values'. Total budget must have been below a grand. :smile:

I like spotting bit part actors who go on to better things - and that wouldn't have been difficult after that. :smile: Nigel Greene (in Zulu as the Clr Sgt) was robber number two or some such.

It was filmed for tv in 1956/7! I love trying to spot the actors, did you see Derren Nesbitt who i think was the model for the puppets in Thunderbirds. 😂

No I missed that. He's on quite often in a series called Special Branch which is no worse than the others. I've just looked him up, and changed my view after reading. "Nesbitt has been married four times and has five children from his various marriages" :smile:

Like the confirmed Philistine I am I immersed myself in the Belgian GP, both qualifying and the race itself. Then in bed by 21:00. It's what crumblies do...

Restoration Workshop on the Yesterday channel (Freesat 159) an Essex salvage dealer has a team of people repurposing all sorts of stuff. Catch up on UK TV Play, well worth a watch if that's your thing.
