Re: Hope you are all ok?!

We did have an interesting day together, though, and it did clear up in the afternoon. It was nice to know what you all look like, and I hope more of us can meet up someday. There used to be a section on PP Forum where people posted photos of themselves. Would anyone else be willing/interested, if w...

Re: Hope you are all ok?!

Some much-needed lovely rain here, nearly two inches, in Hampshire - has interrupted a paving project, but has made me take a morning indoors, cleaning the house properly after several weeks' hard work in the garden. Might even tackle the ironing this afternoon. And I got lawn fertiliser down before...

Re: Wet droppings (grey green)

Anyway. There is an evolutionary reason for grief so its pretty unavoidable. Thats a lot of plastic in the landfill. Keeping chickens is a delight. I don't really get social media I think. XXX That's a very perceptive statement, Rick, says it all I think. I do care for my chickens - a lot - I like ...

Re: Wet droppings (grey green)

Its a relief to hear that other people whose opinion I respect think along the same lines as I do. I used to feel that I had a moral obligation to keep my old hens going until they dropped off naturally. But II've come to feel that what I owe them is the best of care whilst they are healthy, happy a...

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

We need MORE immigration from the E.U, at all skill levels. EU migrants contribute more in taxation than they take out in benefits and services, since they are usually young, healthy and enterprising, they are essential in staffing the NHS and multiple industries especially farming and food.

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

I think he wasn't the only one. Nobody had any plans for Brexit. Neither camp imagined it would actually happen. If there had been some plans, along the lines of the papers only just now being published about its effect on business, travel etc, people might have had a better idea what they were voti...
