G-Whizz

I’ve decided that now that I’m 40 I can start doing what the hell I like. So I bought a convertible Mercedes. Not one of the long bonnet/short willy sports cars Mercedes, you understand.  I bought a four wheel drive G Wagen off of the 80′s. I once had a crash and inconclusively wrote off a Land Rover Defender […]

Home Time

A chap just called in to collect some flowers for a wedding order. It’s pretty busy here today, there are trailers of flowers and forklifts whizzing about and I’m looking haggard, even someone who likes me would have to admit that. Him:  “What time  do you get finished then?” Me:      “June 2030 if things go […]

I’ve Got Your Number

I’m slowly easing back into this blogging lark so I am on red alert for amusing incidents or situations which provoke me into thought. There ain’t been many for the last few weeks.  We are busy harvesting and selling flowers and so the day is completely taken up with that. I’m forcing myself to come up with something […]

On The Fendts

We are contemplating updating one of the tractors this year to take advantage of George Osborne’s  capital allowance. Our preference is for John Deere or Fendt and so we are in the process of trying tractors and negotiating prices. Yesterday we had a Fendt on demo.  Have you ever seen inside one of those things? I jumped […]

Launch

Today is the start of the rest of my life. I’m having a mid-term review.  A bit like they do with the CAP every 5 minutes.  I do mine every 40 years  because, quite frankly, I’m busier than they are. I turned 40 yesterday so this may be the half-way point of my life.  I’ve always […]

Run VT

I thought I would also try uploading a little video.  I have a grand plan that when the NEW IMPROVED blog starts, it will have more videos.  Now that I have an iPhone, this stuff is child’s play. Here goes.  If it works then you should see the film of the amazing Kenyan girl from […]

Ere Wig Go

This is my attempt at posting a picture using the new blogging site.  What you can hopefully see is a picture of a dog wearing a Jesse J wig when, quite clearly, it would prefer not to be doing that. It is raining here and I have been briefly stopped from doing what I wished […]

The story so far….

Right.  I think that I’ve got the hang of this dashboard.  Things keep happening that make me nervous but I’m going to push on. This blog is 6 years old.  That’s not bad for me.  Most people only manage about 4 entries before they fizzle out. 6 years in human terms is about 780 in blog years  […]

Testing

I’m back.  At least I hope I am, anyway. I am writing this on a new “blogging platform.” We won’t go into the technical details for fear of sounding like my grandma when she talks about her car.    I don’t actually know what I’m doing.  This is why I have been silent for the thick […]

NeoNics

Well. Neonictinoids have been banned in the EU for 2 years then I am not saying that it was my blog post that prompted this action.  I’ll leave that for other people to say. What is very interesting is that the the bee fraternity are not convinced that the ban is the right thing to […]
