    How are them spuds doing? Have you been playing them recordings of classical music and talking to them?

    The main crop (baking) potatoes won't be ready in time as it was too cold to plant them 'till May, but there's a load of early (new) ones which will be ready to be used on Saturday's buffet.

    Not Long Now

    Time seems to be galloping away, and there are now less than two weeks to go.
    Many of you haven't been to a Tossers do before, so just to make you aware of of a few things.

    The site is not some commercial set up, it's my own land, and as such might seem a bit basic. You all attend at your own risk, and if you are prone to falling over, stabbing yourself with a fork, upending your bike in a rut, falling in the bonfire, getting stung by flying insects and the like, can you please go out the gate onto the public road before you do it.
    There is only a soak-away for the water (and I'm on a meter), so if we can use it sparingly it would be appreciated. I've set up a wash room and there will be portable loos.
    I'll park an airhead GS at the end of the drive, you will see it as you come up Tower Hill road. If your satnav brings you DOWN Tower Hill road, you'll sail straight past the enterance as it's obscured by the hedge, so when you come to a small cross roads (there's only one), do an about turn and the site is a couple of hundred yards up the road from there. You will most likely see my polytunnel and 'new' barn as you come up the road, just so you know you are in the right place.
    There should be enough wood for a bonfire both nights, and I'll dig some turf out so you can have a couple of camp fires as well.
    There are enough paper/polystyrene plates and cups, plastic drinks glasses and plastic cutlery to go round, so unless you prefer your own crockery and irons, there's no need to bring any. Tea,coffee and some soft drinks will be there all day, as will a quantity of alcohol in various guises.
    I've bought a Tesco sim card phone number 07934 ******, this will be switched on from lunchtime on the Friday until Sunday afternoon. If you have a problem or get lost ,ring the number so we can all have a laugh at your expense
    A nice comfy sleeping mat might be an idea, as will one of those disk things for putting under your side stand.

    See you all soon
    Bill

    I'm not leaving it there until 19th , I'll be putting it out on the day with a big lock and chain round the gate post, and anyway no-one would nick it - the carbs need tuning.

    Cooked meats and cheeses ordered for buffet, firewood has just turned up - there's enough for a fire both nights by the look of it, and perhaps some left over for a spit roast mammoth or two

    Evening you load of reprobates.
    Tomorrow I'll ask if the Ciderminer will take direct orders from you and will let you pay online. I'll collect it next Wednesday and transport it up to you.
    DON'T order till I've set it up.....
    I will be bringing 2 x 20 liter Poly Boxes for your consumption.
    So collecting yours is not a problem.
    I'd recommend either 10 liter or 20 liter poly's as it lasts better in this heat.
    A 5 liter plastic bottle will go off if not drunk within 24 hours, whereas poly will keep for up to 4 weeks after opening...
    If everything is ok I'll post the cidermines number tomorrow. and a price list.
    REMEMBER the one I always get is the AUTUMN MIX SCRUMPY... @ supposedly 7.5%

    Rubbish!
    I've been buying and drinking the stuff for years and a polybox has NEVER lasted anything like 4 weeks after opening. Best I ever managed was less than a week.

    Looks like I won't be coming in the Hymer as engine no. 2 is just as fecked as the original engine. Mechanic is hoping to rebuild both and make one good engine out of the two but that will take a while. Looks like I'll have to come up on the 1100.
