Romeo farmer says it with manure

A US farmer made a half-mile wide heart out of manure as a Valentine's Day gift to his wife of 37 years.

The southern Minnesota man produced his opus in their farm field about 12 miles southwest of Albert Lea.

Bruce Andersland told the Alberta Lea Tribune that he started the project with his tractor and manure spreader on Wednesday and finished on Thursday.

1/2 Year Drinks

Just a thought, how about we organise a 1/2 year drink somewhere ?
and include partners if you wish, so we can all meet up for a social drink somewhere one evening ????? (not that I enjoy a drink or anything)

Dorking or Guildford ish - somewhere that's roughly central to the majority - shall we discuss and arrange next week?

Questions /Comments for January 2010

Please add here

Deep Root Database

Hi Everyone

Please read your emails asap. I sent you all an email about the price of this Deeproot database that Ceri found, and let me know if you want to buy, realise not everyone will, but need to know EITHER way so I can make a decision to multi buy 10 @ £15 each, or everyone who does want to buy one can get their own licence for £20. As time is not on my side to complete the assignment.

Cheers Trish

Hello all,
