  1. Farmers will do it - we can stick needles in anything (other services available), the bed side manner may be a bit basic at times but we get the job done 👨‍🌾🐮 (sorry - couldn't find the emoji for a farmer with his arm up the back side of a cow for some reason)
  2. Well they have just past the 1/2 million signatories 🤣
  3. Hi, I have not contacted anyone, I will give them a call later this week. Thanks for the info.
  4. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 - HIM - Do the honourable thing! That would be a first.
  5. This is a concern I have, I will probably end up by buying a universal top hat bush from someone like Powerflex and modifying, unfortunately I need to make 4 sets of 2 which won't be cheap. As Brian's message also stated durability may be an issue but as this is for the track / Rally scene ultimately the bushes although working hard only have to last one event (although hopefully a lot more). If all goes well these will be tested later this year. Thanks again for the comments - all useful stuff.
  6. Thanks for your response Thomas. I don't think that I will be going down the casting route but have bought a small length of polyurethane bar to try turning on the lathe. I have also found a possible solution with universal bushes from reputable suppliers (which will need modifying) so may go down that route.
  7. Has anyone made their own poly bushes? I need to make some for a project (GRP4 TR7 V8 Rally car) as I cannot buy the size I need. The plan is to turn the bush on a lathe using 90A shore polyurethane purely because it is readily available, possibly freeze the material? Any advice on this topic from someone who has done this before would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Merry Christmas Everyone and Happy New Year to everyone.
  9. That's expensive - I am sure Unleaded was £1.42 and Diesel £1.45 at Alphington Sainsburys yesterday and they are never that cheap.
  10. Yep - And driven(tuk-tuk), ridden (Enfield Bullet), driven steam train (around marshalling yard only) - it's brilliant fun, can highly recommend it as long as the vehicles aren't yours. If you really want to be scared take a local Tata bus ride around the valleys of Nepal. Where possible we used to ride on the roof with the luggage so we could jump off should it go over (which is more common than you would think).
  11. Same here - The Booster and the Flu jab(both at the same time) have knocked both of us for six for about a week, although being a farmer taking time off work was not an option..
  12. I think they are offering that option - Carina is looking into it.
  13. Here is a response from the NHS with regards to not being able to sort out the passport - definitely baffle with bulllsh1t rather than be helpful. A later response also stated it could be sorted at you GP practice, unfortunately the GP practice didn't have a clue what they were talking about! National Customer Service Team (NHS App and Login) 8 Dec 2021, 17:00 GMT Thank you for contacting the NHS App team.

  14. Carina has just spent the whole day trying to sort the passport out as a venue she is attending this weekend is demanding it. The process just does not work and everyone blames everyone else. Failing to get in to the venue will cost the us over £800.00 in lost meat sales if she can't sort it tomorrow - absolute farce.
  15. Absolutely fed up with the excuses companies are making for not meeting their commitments (mainly COVID related. So far this week. 1. Sainsbury's have cancelled our food order at the last minute 3 times with absolutely no explanation this week. So we are currently on our latest phone call to the helpline (last one was 1 3/4 hours long) to sort out what the f is going on. 2. Boiler service for our year old boiler cancelled at the last minute - service now delayed from December to March! Raised issue about warranty with Bosch and possible alternative service engineer - absolutely no response. 3. Builders booked in to finish simple job - delayed 3 times and only found out when they didn't turn up. 4. Amazon Prime next day delivery seems to be next 4 days - not sure why the hell we are paying for this service. And this is just the latest in a list of the f' you attitude companies seem to be able to adopt since the start of Covid and it seems to be completely acceptable. When we were finishing the kitchen this year the amount of faulty parts we received was unbelievable, the builders stated this was normal since the start of Covid (and the companies were blaming Covid) so not only do companies not need to meet their commitments they don't even need to provide working stuff. But Hey that's OK it's Covid.
  16. Just renewed the Landcruiser insurance and prices seem to be all over the place. Admiral wanted over £270.00 for a renewal and others were around the £130.00 (which really surprised me) so a shop around is well worth it.
  17. What happens to the names of the different strains after they run out of Greek letters? May I suggest daughters names of Ancient Ethiopian Kings and Queens starting in Alphabetical order.
  18. Our neighbour died of Covid 19 last week. Mind you he was 95.
  19. I thought we had got away with it but no. One of our trees came down across the lane blocking access to a couple of houses, have just come in from clearing it with a neighbouring farmer. Lots of firewood for the winter after next 😁.

    What I don't get is that the French police just watch - all they have to do is run up/ drive up and put a knife through a tube and it's end of crossing, they don't even have to tackle the migrants. Also many of these boats look like they are being built for single use (the manufacturers will know exactly what they are to be used for), why aren't the police going after and shutting down the boat manufacturers, making tubes is a skilled job.
  21. Stolen from someone else, you will hopefully get a chuckle out of it. HELL EXPLAINED BY A CHEMISTRY STUDENT The following is an actual question given on a University of Arizona chemistry midterm, and an actual answer turned in by a student. The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well. Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following: First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving, which is unlikely. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added. This gives two possibilities: 1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose. 2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over. So which is it? If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,' and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct..... ...leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting........ 'Oh- my- God.' THIS STUDENT RECEIVED AN A+
  22. Sorry - that was not my video just one I pulled from the Internet, I should have made it clear.
