    Where's the monkey come into it? You living in a zoo Mr Johnson?

    Stump grinding question

    If it was yellow in colour it's probably false acacia, it's horrible if it's not fresh cut. I've had it smoking when the grinder teeth loose their edge. It blunts teeth quickly. Smells a bit of something dead.

    You're quite obviously a gentleman, Mr Johnson, asking first..

    Apparently there was an "earthquake" of 5 on the Richter scale this morning here. Lots on FB went on about it, didn't feel anything, but friends 15 kms reported feeling some tremors. Bleeding Brexit!

    It seems to be a one way street. Criticise the left at your peril and you're shown the door. Imagine the stink if Bernard Manning or Jim Davidson were given free rein on mainstream tv, not my cup of tea these days, but I can remember both of them having folk rolling in the isles in the 60s and 70s, myself included. Times change, often for the better. In this case, I actually quite like Jo Brand, not a big fan of female comics effing and jeffing, but I realise it seems not to be a big deal these days. Acid throwing is too sensitive, in my opinion, to joke about in these violent times, there are some very strange people out there who believe what they hear in the media is tantamount to having an excuse to act on it. My brain is hurting now after this. I must lie down before Nursey comes in.

    Eggs, if she'd have come out with a racist, homophobic, anti feminist joke, the media and the left would have been over her like a rash.Double standards again. I wonder if Katie Piper found it a rib tickler?

    You were lucky you cancelled your trip at the last minute, Stubby.

    They're called Terrasaur. Pretty good, I used one for small roots in stoney ground. When one side is blunt, all you do is reverse the disc.

    I for one would love to see Jon return. First time I read one of his postings, I was completely lost. After getting used to his style, I enjoyed his views. Seems to not have a nasty bone in his body, something sadly lacking on Arbtalk recently.
