Got all my merino back out this weekend.
I forget how wonderful this product is and
when it touches my skin and the warmth
hugs me, the love affair begins again.

I want to know your stories....
Want to hear about your love affairs
with merino, where you have taken it, what you use it for etc

send me some nice photo's of it too.
I can share some of them on the blog.

send them to me

if you have ten minutes free, check out this compilation of clips featuring early attempts at flight, involving many weird and wondrous contraptions designed to aid personal aviation.

even if you don't have ten minutes, watch the first 50 seconds!

anyone got an oil drum?

I need some help I'd really like to get hold of a few large (empty) oil drums/barrels.
They need to be relatively clean looking though a bit of flakey paint or rust is cool, just not too much.

Does anyone know of a really good welsh scrap yard? or maybe you've got a few knocking about on your farm?
Any help on this would be great you can email me on [email protected]
I've rung round a few places but the drums seem to disappear as quickly as I find them!

Thanking yous!

they got it out without it breaking.

it took 12 men to lift it down. they think it weighed over 1/4 ton.

it's 10mm float glass that is made by floating it on oil to get it perfect, but means if it breaks that it comes down in huge sharp swords.

they are making the frame, and then have to lift it in.

half way to victory is not victory.


today, tom from folksy has come down from sheffield to take down the compettion entries.

to say thank you, he brought us a box of yummy pastries.

it was our pleasure!!

i had just climbed into bed listening to the storm rage outside, when there was a banging at the door.

a big oak tree had come down across the road up from our house.

i cut off the crown and then had to cut the trunk from the root ball.

but the root ball was 10ft up a bank, and i was worried that once the saw went through that it would roll down onto me. it came down safely onto the road.

i towed the trunk home then had to come back and tow the root ball in the pic out the bank and into the layby.

this weekend i shall be splitting wood.
