Oh heck, I think I'll just keep quiet now, this is getting more and more embarassing! But whoever has horses, have a look at the video, horse hair seems to be useful!

I don't think it matters who has horses if it works , we know where horses are kept and all you

have to do is ask

 I was always told that it was tradition for a farmer to judge whether the soil was warm enough to sow seed, by pulling down his breeches and sitting his bare b*m on the soil - if it felt warm then he could sow his corn."

sounds like an old wives tale to me

If you don'tt want to do the above use your elbow , this morning there was a link to you tube

where a man sprayed deep heat onto dried t-bags and buried these just below the surface of the

soil ,it seems Cats can't stand the smell of it ,tried it . seems to work
