I told you Farmers Weekly gets everywhere!
Thanks to Mike Potter for sending us this picture of him grabbing a few moments of essential reading at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics.
“It was an amazing evening,” says Mike. “The transition from rural Britain to the industrial revolution was particularly stunning. I was surrounded by people of many nationalities and they were all astonished. A great night for our country. I also had tickets for the last night of Athletics, but sadly, harvest will have to come first!”
