Talking of that film. Did you know that the main theme of the film is about Agnosticism? It was filmed at the beginning of the second world war and the message was to get on with your life and do things for your self. No matter what gets in your way. Interesting stuff! It sounds like a bit of good advice or for any smallholder. If only we had been born with another hand or we were twenty years younger. Smallholding makes you very pragmatic and stoic.
Any road. Here's the terrier and cat sleeping in our kitchen. Number one son made the coffee table. We have had our Stanley range about ten years. We had always dreamed of a Rayburn or a Aga. The type you see on: "Escape To The Country." Why are all the houses so expensive? I could show the viewers lots of cheap smallholdings in Ireland for less than 100000 Euros. Saw one last week. Cottage with an acre for less than forty grand.

|Terrier still a sleep in front of range. They ("Who are they?") reckon that your average dog and cat sleeps seventeen hours a day!|
I read recently that there is at least 200 years of coal reserves left in England (UK). Surely we could be making it into smokeless fuel instead of importing so much oil? Or do we live in a post industrial society which does not allow smoke emissions? They won't ban cars though will they?. I was reading about one of my heroes: Rudolf Diesel the other day. He invented a Bio Fuel engine in 1905. What's the future? Nuclear electric powered cars? Or will we go back to horses and carts?
