A Group of guys, all turning 40, discussed where they should meet for lunch.
Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Wetherspoons in Uxbridge because the waitresses had big breasts and wore mini-skirts.

Ten years later, at age 50, the friends once again discussed where
they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet
at Wetherspoons in Uxbridge because the waitresses were attractive.
The food and service was good and the beer selection was excellent.

Ten years later, at age 60, the friends again discussed where they
should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at
Wetherspoons in Uxbridge because there was plenty of parking, they
could dine in peace and quiet with no loud music, and it was good
value for money.

Ten years later, at age 70, the friends discussed where they should
meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at
Wetherspoons in Uxbridge because the restaurant was wheelchair
accessible and had a toilet for the disabled.

Ten years later, at age 80, the friends discussed where they should
meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at
Wetherspoons in Uxbridge because they had never been there before.

Congratulations to Willy Stevens and Spy taking top spot on both saurday's HTAD1, and Vikki Wong who won the sunday HTAD 1 trials, one with Quories Perri and one with Quories Cloud, and Annette Harper with Whiterose Ava who won the Most Improved handler prize! Willy and Spy also qualified HTAD 3 under both judges. congratulations y'all!



They ask me why I live in the green mountains. 

I smile and don’t reply; my heart’s at ease. 

Peach blossoms flow downstream, leaving no trace – 

And there are other earths and skies than these.

Li Po (trans. Vikram Seth)


He is a serious working dog from his tail tip to his nose

But he likes to bow and grin and pounce on a running hose 

He can pace the ewes on the stony paths when they'd rather run and hide

He can nurse along the weaker ones with the skill of a mountain guide

He can stop the stroppy awkward ones, their old grey heads held high,

And bring them in, with their precious lambs, from moor to safe in-bye

He is a serious working dog, so good to see him run, 

With a rattle of paws on the stony paths for the ewes in the summer sun

Through the heather haze - oh the glory days, when we heard them call our name

And we stepped out together to play the trialing game

We stepped out together and it was neat and sweet and fun

With every sort of puzzled sheep on every sort of ground




Or Penguins.


4th with Chap at Danby Show trial!


This means I came 6th on day two. One of the three reseves from each day will be be selected as the 16th team member, the reserve, to go on with the English team. Yesterday's reserve has 2 more points than me so I'm out but you note who I was equall 5th with ... ONLY last years Supreme champion!




The boat building



Roger Goulder added 2 new photos.

Well that went well, I thought. Did some epoxy resin work early on , before it got too hot, then into the workshop for a good tidy up and a second look at the engine. Wasn’t sure what I was going to find once I took the head off, but all seemed well in there. No rust or water, just a bit of crud in the cooling channels. Head now sitting in a bucket of diesel ( The engine head not mine ....)

Bob's sheep restraining trap in action





Uncle Alan's poem


Once in Persia reigned a King,
Who upon his signet ring
Graved a maxim true and wise,
Which, if held before his eyes,
Gave him counsel, at a glance,
Fit for every change or chance:
Solemn words, and these are they:
'Even this shall pass away!'

Trains of camels through the sand
Brought him gems from Samarcand;
Fleets of galleys through the seas
Brought him pearls to rival these.
But he counted little gain
Treasures of the mine or main.
What is wealth? the King would say;
'Even this shall pass away.'

In the revels of his court,
At the zenith of the sport,
When the palms of all his guests
Burned with clapping at his jests,
He, amid his figs and wine,
Cried, O loving friends of mine!
Pleasure comes, but not to stay:
'Even this shall pass away.'

Lady fairest ever seen
Was the bride he crowned his queen.
Pillowed on the marriage-bed,
Whispering to his soul, he said,
Though a bridegroom never pressed
Dearer bosom to his breast,
Mortal flesh must come to clay:
'Even this shall pass away.'

Fighting on a furious field,
Once a javelin pierced his shield.
Soldiers with a loud lament
Bore him bleeding to his tent.
Groaning from his tortured side,
Pain is hard to bear, he cried,
But with patience day by day,
'Even this shall pass away.'

Towering in the public square
Twenty cubits in the air,
Rose his statue carved in stone.
Then the King, disguised, unknown,
Gazing at his sculptured name,
Asked himself, And what is fame?
Fame is but a slow decay:
'Even this shall pass away.'

Struck with palsy, sere and old,
Waiting at the Gates of Gold,
Spake he with his dying breath,
Life is done, but what is Death?
Then, in answer to the King,
Fell a sunbeam on his ring,
Showing by a heavenly ray --
Even this shall pass away.

to me

This is to let you know you have been approved as a judge for the American Herding Breed Association.  As indicated in the AHBA Judges Requirements, all approvals are provisional for the first two years or until the individual has judged at least twice, whichever comes last.  Comments from the herding public will be considered in providing full approval. A provisional judge may take any assignment.  Also, you will need to earn a second AHBA advanced title in that period.


Let me know if any changes are needed to the website listing below.  If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to contact me. 


Thank you for your support of the AHBA and its programs.

499 pieces... 3-D. I may go blind.



We knew, when the top bananas all baled out after the referendum result. The teen age voters have revenged themselves on the oldies to get supported through their university years. Basically a win for terrorist groups and people with long knives. My 15 acre 'garden' is going to triple my poll tax, RPA will doubtless vanish and Europe's getting best laugh since the American election. And Ryedale's fracked.

 And that may read as teenagers being a terrorist group. I considered the offence this may cause, then left it as it reads. So kennel cough seems small beer at mo; got a bucket of antibiotic tablets all the dogs reject in any form of concealment so by the end of the course probably will be first customer of our new enriched super efficient NHS for re attaching my pill inserting hand.

Clough Head Sheepdog Trial from the

top of the field.

Valmis Jupiter makes it up there! I am at the bottom, in front of the white car away from the rest, the judge's car, begging him to flank so we get some steering. He REALLY wants to bring them straight down. I REALLY want him to swing them left along the side of the incline to hit his fetch gates. We did get them but time ran out...

(Thank you Thomas Longton for the pic taken on his phone; 'Dog has so much eye  I had time to take a picture')

Chap had a perfect half mile outrun on the Deerplay second day but failed to take vital stop and steering commands and brought them at high speed over bog gulley and rush to my feet instead of across the hill to the drop off point for his second outrun, so I retired. I was not alone, plenty more did the same, so I know what to practice for next year! The winning runs showed how to do it!
