1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    On recieving a call from a mate about squidgers eating his chestnut xmas fayre ,I was going through some old pics from a while ago when i first got a call to help save his xmas income, upon reaching some pics of my last visit to his wood, i just seemed to drift into my own little world remembering every shot i took on the two days i had to clear some squidgers from his chestnut wood , i remember this lot was friggin heavy to carry back most of all, i do like to look back at my perms results before hitting the perm to recall what might be offered or where to sit,times , food availablity,quite strange as half the time i cant remember what day it is, i thought id throw up a pic or two of them days you just cant forget , thanks for viewing ,its was a good two days to sit in my memory for furture reference, cant wait to get at his chestnut perm in november havent touched it for a year or so hopefully more memories to come...atvb Dave

    Never eat squirrel myself but maybe I will try it one day, like Gary said its the thought of skinning them as they look very rat like.

    Talking about that when I was a lad there was a guy well known on the estate my dad keepered on, that was caught in WW2 with the japs and worked on the Burma railway, him and the captain were caught together and they survived the war from catching, snaring rats!

    I was told they would have been worked to death or starved without that protein, I don't know how they didn't die of something from the rats to be honest.

    Anyway I heard good things about the taste of squirrel Im sure its nice but how do you cook them?
