    Stan, I guess you read all about beavers and their vanilla anal glands?

    Stan, the Brits drink their tea with milk too. I must have about 3 cups a day. But it's stronger tea than American's have, if you were to put milk in what they call tea, there'd be nothing left as there's little taste without it.

    Their tea may not be to my taste but they have some very easy to drink beer. Just to mention one beverage I sampled when over there. I also noticed the size of there BBQed chicken legs, bloody huge.

    I was in Le Mars a few years ago for a country music festival. When in one of the local resturants we were being given free food to taste. The waiter kept on coming out with food saying they had cooked to much and would we like to sample it. What they were doing was trying to guess where we came from. Seems New Zealanders are quite well thought of over there, but we had to assure them New Zealand was not a state of America. Yet.

    Le Mars was a small town along the lines of where I live but with a difference. When in the resturant, I could not help but notice the business that had quads parked outside and no chains or fences around them. Also a caravan sales yard, the caravans were not lock up. In my town they would not be there in the morning. I mean it, where I live, and the general area (northland) the moto is Lock it or loose it. I also noticed no writing on walls.

    At the festival which went for a week from 10 untill well after middnight. There was 7 closed in stages. One could leave a chair in each stage and belongs on it and at the end of the week it was still there. I was amazed.

    Roslyn played harmonica and bass for a few of the artists and I must say she was in demand. Very talented is my wife. We went down to Nashville and did the tourest thing, also drove to a place famous for the americian war. Not sure of the name. I asked a local in Nashville directions He said it was down the road aways. Aways being, a couple of hundred miles by highway traveling at 70 mikes an hour. Americians have a great country and I found are very polite people. I feel sorry for them AlexS as they have ended up being the worlds Policemen. I doubt if I will ever get back there but one never knows whats around the corner.

    Now its raining so Ill give Bugs and Stella a scratch some hay and introduce Bugs to me wearing a trench coat.
    No smart comment about the trench coat we have all heard the ones about the old man in the trench coat.

    FC~ I got this one,



    I needed one that cinched up like a saddle since my girl is so big a regular one would not go around her, lol. I have been riding bareback since I learned to ride when I was 12. It is just what we did, lol. Not sure how good my balance is but I stay on, lol. I really think it helps with balance and seat and easy to just go if you do not feel like totally tacking up.

    Are you thinking about getting one??? Mine is by riders choice, I believe its a knock off of like the parelli but cheaper. You really stick to the suede.

    And now you have me concerned about my tea not being up to par......we drink lots of tea, iced and hot. Usually lipton cold and I have a variety of tea bags for hot tea. You mean to tell me my earl grey is no good?



    Nvr- I asked a similar question about how would one collect anal secretions from a beaver and the best answer I got was to form a very close bond with the beaver.
    I don't want to meet the people that came up with the idea in the first place.

    Nope!


    Does your pad have stirrups? I think I would need them to rest my legs.

    Well obviously you wouldn't use them to mount up with but I wonder why they would be dangerous? My daughters has them.

    I guess due to the fit and that the pad can slip?? There has been talk about it on different threads but cannot find one to show you.
