  1. I've got a job starting down in the Auvergne next week and I'm just piling mine into the back of the Defender and going. I'll let you know if I have any problems.
  2. Still they seemed confident enough. Dropping A Douglas Fir In Close Quarters | Master Loafer | A Man Cave For Your Mind
  3. I use propellar on my boots and the tyres/wheel arches of my Defender. Never had a problem. My boots are three years old now and still keep my feet dry. Some days they get sprayed 3 or 4 times.
  4. I do a fair bit of rights of way work in the summer months. One path in Ottery St Mary springs to mind. Broken glass, used needles and a used condom. I gave up. Dog poo seems to be on all paths, the closer to houses the more there is. I swear every time and when I see one curl one out and it's owner doesn't clear up, God help 'em. I do not hold back!
  5. Another one that uses up the Kleenex. [ame] [/ame]
  6. Mind you, my girls are into The Voice, and who'd have thought it. This guy really moved me , with a song I'm really not a fan of. [ame] [/ame]
  7. I capitulate to you sir. You really are very good.:biggrin:
  8. Never going to beat this. [ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5Y11hwjMNs[/ame]
  9. Circumstances have conspired to keep me away from the keyboard, but I do have a few spare days. So gird yourself for some inane.
  10. Bear in mind that your average Fenlander has 6 fingers on each hand (or 5 fingers and a thumb). Probably only need 7 brothers for whole ensemble.
  11. Agree with you on the Poplar. I burn in a wood burner as well, but mines a 1930's Jotul and doesn't really seal that well, so you always get a bit of a wiff of whats burning. Don't half chuck out some heat though and stays in overnight, purely on the size of log you can put on it. It'll take an 18" log, no problem.
  12. Don't know why, but I can't stop laughing now. Have you never noticed it whilst burning?
  13. Well, It always reminded me of the lifts in a 70's council tower block. Not so bad cutting, but burning, it stank. Funnily enough, this seemed to go if it was seasoned for a second year, but really reeked after just one.
  14. If it's Lime it will smell, when you cut it and when you burn it.
