  1. lot of times it dont get to a slaughterhouse its a shotgun between the eyes.
  2. i buy pig feed all the time. sow rolls and weaner pellets. the price of sow rolls which is the staple pig food costs me6.50 for 20kg bag, it was 6.50 for a 25kg bag. thats from a producer not a trader like harbro who charge around 9.00 for the same. i get a field bred and reared pig for my effort of transporting the feed in return from my friend that breeds them. works out great as its no effort for me as im running back empty anyhow. this year however he is finding that the effort is barely worth it, just think how much feed a 200kg sow eats a day. and he is finding the best way is to just sell the piglets at 5 weeks and let someone else rear them to 6 months for butchering. any that do rear them are not doing so for cheap meat, they are doing it for good quality meat, the diffrence between a field reared pig and a concrete shed reared pig is amazing. i do feel a little sad when i eat the pig that ive been watching run around happy in the field though, but thats what it was reared for. i think the future for meat is back to the past, with people if possible rearing a lot of their own, loafs of people have gone back to having chickens in their gardens, with the price of eggs no wonder. and same with pigs. if you use scraps ( non meat ones obviously) you can save a good bit on feed, and thats the way forward with little waste.
  3. yup i was lucky they put a ccj against me which wrote off the debt in affect. they changed the law soon after as everyone was going to do this to get rid of the debt. on topic : these people dont know how lucky they are, the best think for your financial health is to be declared a credit risk, then you buy everything withon your means and you save money for anything you need. and your wages are your own. when you have access to credit you tend to buy a new sofa instead of a second hand one, buy a new car when a £1000 quid one would do, it forces you to be frugal, and you dont have any worries abouy making payments as their is none. i suggest everyone gets a bad credit rating.
  4. dont forget the expense accounts and company cars ect. that pay packet could probably be fully banked with no need to spend a penny to live.
  5. yup ukcoal is on the aim market. it lost money due to payout over an accident a few months ago. the problem is that deep mining is unprofitable at the moment as coal prices are plummeting. around the world there is still enough open cast mining for supply, only when this is depleted will the deep mining operations be viable again, its a bit like onshore v offshore oil, offshore oil is only viable when prices are high, hence the new boom in north sea oil at the moment. it allways amazes me when its stated that you can never start a mine again once flooded. nonsense have they never heard of pumps.
  6. thats cheap. on the motorways the cheapest cup of coffee i have out was 2.65 for a americano regular size. i only ever go to these places at services where im practically forced to. sure i cpuld bring a flask or not have a coffee but i dont.
  7. thats so true. a part of it is only what you earn, the other is what you spend. i once watched that pathetic superscrimpers program on tv, its basically these types ie middle class public servants now having to live how the working classes do all the time. oh dear how will we survive. pathetic utterly pathetic.
  8. you could lie on yer sofa look up and watch grandma get off the toilet and pull her pants up.
  9. yes hyperinflation could come and wipe out all that cash.but that only ever happens if the government start printing and printing, destroying its value to the point you need a wheelbarrow load to get a loaf of bread. but thats ok, that wont happen.
  10. same for sale in fort william, no takers in 6 months, though it looks like an easy conversion. ps. canny be bothered hunting and posting the link, check yourself if you wish.
  11. aye thats my take on it aswell. about 2 years ago the posting were loads, even yer granny was on there posting about her coffee mornings, but exactly as i have seen over the years with being a long long time chatter on what they now call social network sites, from irc to bebo to facebook, they all die out eventually and everyone moves on. facebook has a very important flaw, it has no way of being anonymous and thus trolling and truly posting how you feel. i think this is what is partly behind the fake accounts. facebook is boring because its where you have to post stuff you wont mind your mum and dad seeing, where your work mates look, when realy you want to tell the world you wear crotchless spandex and pumped the vicars wife. thus people are bored and are moving back to anonymous sites like this while popping in occasionally to see if any of your friends have died yet on facebook, before running back to your anonymous niches.
  12. like betfair, it will make facebook banned in the usa. the same problem happened to second life, the site collapsed when gambling even in fun was banned.
  13. into anything, farm land, gold, donkeys, whores, shares. at least you get it outta their hands, and i see some are just accepting it will be eating away by the bankers, id rather lose it myself than give it to them.
