  2. Depends on what you consider quality : Design? How long it lasts? How it works Or materials? IE the ABU reels of the 70's were poorly designed no doubt to a set price although in the UK there was little competition unlike the states and japan. No bearings so not the best user experience but good materials and i still use them today !Modern ones are the opposite and forcing bearings into plastic stupid in the long term it deforms the plastic and they come loose they are now a disposable product so you buy the next model when it comes out. The early mitchells w
  3. An outside greenhouse lol Surprisingly easy to find nowadays even in supermarkets long gone is the specialist collector only lable they had 50 years ago I always hankered for a bug eating plant collection but my initial venus fly trap died of exhaustion with the kids triggering it closed as soon as it reopened

It came out every thursday morning or when i left the village ,according to google (who appear to track android phones) i went 21 miles last year lol
  6. Unfortunately as you saw long ago our house is tiny so no room for bottling or bulk sauce ,considering another freezer for the shed (the price of outbuiding freezers has dropped) but we get power cuts quite often usualy trees falling on lines as surrey has the most trees (surprised myself as most of the area is open common ) but have to get that past the mrs who thinks 3 is enough! She will be very annoyed when two second hand breadmachines turn up i wanted a spare as the first panasonic lasted a month so dont trust this one ! Two second hand for the cost of a cheap new one is a gamble wo
  7. No doubt youve had the email Would you trust SERCO with your details ,corrupt company the government cannot wait to use for just about everything ! Have they got the time inbetween looking after every need law breaking immigrans demand !

  8. Seen the likes of? French made reels? Mitchell garcia wasnt the sole maker of french reels http://www.mitchellcap.info/ This was a favourite of mine until the decades old internal plastic part fell apart ,yes its french it wasnt just ABU and the americans and japs making them even k p morritt designed one but it was to expensive to fit in with the pricing and incresed purchase tax of the time https://www.thomasturner.com/shop/crack-contact-400-french-vintage-closed-face-match-fishing-reel-2-s-spools-box/ just as hardy are not the only english ones in history.Pezon mitchell

The other way is to use dropbox ,its free and easy to use .I use it to store pictures of the finds i make in a day then share it with the land owner via their individual folders ,emailing it is hit and miss with large files https://www.dropbox.com/s/w0f39ue188da69o/JPEG_20200922_104442_3494793400578104959.jpg?dl=0 PS lots of tomatoes this year and better than the ones in the greenhouse ,been mass dehydrating them before they

  11. You dont have to wind down just wise up lol If you want easy access try the CC&C site at east horsley,try and book a pitch by the pond ,the fishing isnt difficult but best of all no maggots (or rather when we camped full time in 2001) but i think probably still the rule we cant have live animals providing sport today shock horror! If you cant walk get a frickin buggy you old scrote ,theres fish waiting you haven't caught all the British ones yet The camping and caravan mob have lots of fishing and no excuses today you can google and see what the terrain is before you go ,if
