Machines...

Yes, we call it back bacon. And it is delicious. No more so that regular bacon, just a different delicious.

Geese have a long neck for a reason, grab it and ring it. It may be difficult for the first hour or so but, endurance will prevail.

Welcome !  That sounds like the start of a nice shop . So part of your shop floor is dirt ? Old barn / shed type space ? We would love to see some pictures.

I think it's earth under the accumulated years of who knows what farmers crap , 

I've had so much to do on the house so the workshop set up has been pushed back & back unfortunately.

I've taken 6 months off work , as being a class 1truck driver doesn't give me much time at home to rest, let alone do some work on the house. 

Picture's will be up when I get back from Prague in a few day's.

Have fun in Prague.  I was there this summer, took the train up from Munich.  Old Prague has some really neat architecture.

It's just above freezing now but the wind is strong so it feels more like  -10c,,

The temp will be +10c by the weekend... 

It's a Swan goose called pipla, he has 15 brothers and sisters, he  doesn't mix with the other geese much as when he hatched he got stuck to the shell and was on his last leg's, we got him into the house and my wife & kid's nursed him for a few weeks and now he thinks he's human

Waterfowl like geese and ducks can make really good pets. They are very social animals, I've always wanted a trio of ducks for pets. Had some when i was younger and they were a riot.

Wild Geese are ace holes, when ever i see them on the road i want to run them over, damaging my vehicle is the only thing that stops me.

Around here, the geese seem to hate runners. Many a time I've been chased by a hissing goose.
