What a busy week

A new weekend, I've finished in Bristol after 9 weeks and I had a 900 and 1000 yard practice arranged for the Sunday, the day started slowly and was amazingly hot with about a ten foot deep heat haze. Below is a M41B Swedish sniping rifle. It did really well at 900 yards before lunch;
 
We had point No1 which shot over butt zero where we held the machine gun shoot last September.

 Ben spent most of the day just relaxing and making the most of the weather to hide away:

 
 The afternoon after lunch at the Army was just as hot but with even less wind all 1000 yards of it!

 Monday morning and its a commute up to town again and Thomas seems to greet me:
 The office is well equipped, I'd be happy to have this fridge in my garage for hanging game;
 This year (hopefully) I will mainly be in:
 So after a few days of sorting out a few dramas I sneaked off to Bristol to see the pogues;
 The support act were pretty good:
 The gang from SSL and NR were all in:
 The light show was pretty good:
 At last at home the garden pond is resurrected and running well;
 As is the waterfall:

HR


HR is made up of people with second class degrees from second class institutions. That they join HR is an indicator that they cannot do anything worthwhile. So, rather like leeches, they find and cling and suck the blood out of all they meet until the host is bled, slowly, drip by drip into submission

A tasty little quote from the Army Rumour Service

Having enjoyed the attentions of the small brained people in HR I have to admit that I'm starting to be more and more impressed with the Health and Safety advisors!

Rik Mayall's Noble England (OFFICIAL VIDEO)





Well he is dead, dead funny at times and maybe spent the last 15 years living on borrowed time. Well I remember wetting myself watching the young ones in 1983 on my first trip to Belfast!

George Osborne told to rein in Help to Buy by European Commission

European Commission calls on Chancellor to 'deploy appropriate measures' against rising house prices


George Osborne’s flagship Help to Buy scheme must be reined in and council tax should be increased to stop house prices getting out of control, the European Commission has said.
In a dramatic intervention in UK Government policy, the commission called on the Chancellor to “deploy appropriate measures” because of rising house prices, particularly in London.
Mr Osborne should adjust the Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme and increase council tax on expensive properties, the commission said.
The suggestion that Help to Buy is fuelling a potentially damaging property boom will anger ministers and comes as David Cameron prepares to reform Britain’s relationship with the European Union before holding an in-out referendum in 2017.
Mr Cameron is also battling to prevent Jean-Claude Juncker, the former prime minister of Luxembourg, from being appointed as European Commission president when Jose Manuel Barroso’s term is over
