Afternoon AB88.
At least you managed to post a picture. I haven't a clue how to do it. Much more mechanically minded than anything to do with computers.

Some of us are talented with computers and photos - others are talented at stealing pictures of cartoon heros and using them for their avatar

Good morning Alan and Paul,
Please believe me when I say I am no computer wiz as I am just a mere carpenter by trade and definitely know more about trees than I do about these complicated things. I have been trying pretty much since I joined. I hope to upload more pictures soon.
All the best.

Morning AB88.
Nothing "mere" in being a carpenter. I only have to look at a piece of wood and it splinters.
I'm more agricultural than cultural.

Good afternoon Alan,

I hope you have at least one vintage tractor hidden as well you Land Rover.
Is it Cattle, Dairy or barley?
Cheers.

Afternoon AB88.
Unfortunately no full size vintage tractors but I have a couple of model Chad Valley Fordson Majors from the 1950's.
My paternal grandfather was a farmer and although I have worked on farms part time it was never qcareer but I can't get the past out of the system.
I have always been more interested in machinery than livestock.
My Land Rover is a link with the agricultural past. I am useless with wood and computers!!!

Hi AB88 - sorry, no excuses mate - I am a carpenter as well Very Happy Although I know little about the trees and more about the produce from them.

If you are struggling with posting photos, you need to employ the services of a 7yr old - I am led to believe that they are quite good with computers.

Hi Paul,
Oh ok I am a carpenter (opinions vary!) not just a mere one as Alan said, however I have a one year old so unfortunately he can't help. but as for trees, there are so many trust me I am not an expert but just take an interest.
Congratulations in becoming a super user!!

Good afternoon Alan,
It is always good to keep the past alive, and I have always preferred the more practical side of things.
I have always like to build, repair and fix things.
Cheers.

Evening Yule.
Only red Land Rovers instead of green.

I've never managed to get an avatar! I might get my resident IT expert (aka Mrs Knapp!) to help... Embarassed Smile

I used to work on a few farms as a student and during my holidays and keep looking at a new "project" like an old Fergie, a Massey 135 or similar. Mrs K wouldn't be impressed though, especially with a young baby!

I think we have been here before Rich - you really have to start selling these to Mrs K as investments for the little one. Smile
