I have discovered that my Rhubarb is still alive, it been neglected for years and grazed to the ground by the sheep last year. It's growing!

My Gunnera is also growing. Wasn't sure if it would survive the winter and the sheep but it has......

I vaguely remember a black and white film about a Drover. Can't remember much detail though. Apart from the animals and a man in a big coat.

Funny you mention Drover. I took a drive out to Shrewsbury today. I passed though a village called Halfway House, there are a few villages called Halfway House. It got me wondering why these places were called Halfway House.

My thoughts went to the Drovers. Welshpool has always been a centre for livestock and so has Shrewsbury. Halfway House is along the route. There would be plenty of pounds in which to put the animals over night. Could Halfway House be travelled on foot with stock in one day?

Ed If I remember correctly the Coronation League was played on a Saturday and the Festival league was played on a  Sunday. Have I got that right?

Hello Ed
We make very little electric in Wales now.
We will have to burn some coal again and a large pit is about to restart mining
in Wales.
Best wishes
Gerald.

FA cup final Saturday who's your money on?

Chelsea V Manchester United

I am and always have been a Chelsea fan, more of an armchair supporter these days.

I think Manchester will win 2 0

Hello Ed
I take your point. Are they pulling electricity from France or perhaps one more train would
be overload.
Keep posting on here Ed with your good friend Gerald.
We never went to Borstal did we. Walking round with an ID card, tin helmet and gas mask was enough for us.
Take care
Gerald.
