Cees B&W Challenge (CBWC)….. All things on the Farm

For this week’s Challenge set by Cee, if its farm related you want, then you have to start with a Farmer and a Farmhouse….  Then some livestock, so a Cow and a Sheep

Then we have the other essentials.  Stables, a Farm 5Bar Gate, a Barn Owl and of course the Farm Cat…every farm needs a Cat

I am sure you can find some suitable farm images, so why not join in the fun.

Thoughtful Thursday…… Maybe Not

Potting-Shedbb

Maybe it’s time to sort out the Potting Shed…. then again maybe I’ll just leave it.

The later could be the wise choice.

Whatever your plans or even if you have none…..

Daffodils have had a great spring season….. but the seasons move along and the Daffs fade.

Bluebells next on the spring menu and have already started to appear.

Whatever the season, as always…

Thoughtful Thursday…… They will be making a comeback

The Old Toll House

The Old Toll House.

For many many years the Toll House were all too familiar on our main roads, estates and bridges. Even our old ‘Drovers’ Roads were blighted by the Toll man, extracting a fee based on mode of transport, passengers and goods.

I did say ‘were’ as the use of these Toll Houses became obsolete as travel and transport became more vital for the country’s economy.  Other means of extracting money were introduced for road users…. Road Fund Licenses and Fuel Duties being the obvious ones.

Listen carefully to our Politicians in Government and we may soon see the national return of Tolls. Modern technology will avoid the need for Toll houses……  a silent Tax Collector will ensure we pay our dues. 

Progress they say…… not too sure about that – I think we will just end up paying giving the Government more

Whatever we call progress and whatever is in store for us all….

Please Remember ….
