Sat amongst the Bluebells watching and waiting for the deer who we firmly believed were lying up in the valley cooling off;

Dont get me wrong, I'm no communist but more a cynical bastard! Rosemary and Fred at work it seems;
Thanks to Knocker from ARRSE for this one;
And to Boozy for this one;
What do you call an anesthetized rabbit?
An ether bunny!

As seen on the Army Rumour service.
Now lets look back at this classic British comedy or should I be more accurate and say farce?
Foist upon the taxpayer (some would say ungrateful) by a Labour Govt and now they are rowing about the cash surplus forecast from the event. Sorry but where did the money come from to fund this?
I'll keep it simple shall I? The BBC account shows this from 2006:
Brown reveals 2012 funding boost
Chancellor Gordon Brown has used his Budget speech to reveal details of an injection of funds to boost British hopes at the 2012 London Olympics.
A national School Olympics and a £600m funding package for athlete training were the key parts of his plan.
"The 2012 Games is for athletes to excel in, but must be an event all Britain can share in," he said.
British Olympic Association boss Simon Clegg said the government should be "congratulated for their commitment".
Lottery funding would supply £300m for "training and facilities for our world-class athletes of the future", with £200m of public money and £100m coming from private sector sponsorship.
The additional £300m means all Olympic sports can focus on programmes that will contribute to the target of fourth place in the 2012 medals table
Simon CleggBOA chief executive; The money is to be added to the £60m a year already targeted at elite athletes and potential medal winners.
The School Olympics will be open to all school children across the country every year from now until 2012, with the first event taking place in Glasgow, and then moving round the country.
The BOA said it was pleased with the £300m pledge, which will come from public money and private sponsors and is in addition to the £300m in lottery funding which already comes through UK Sport's World Class Performance programme. "
Ok so we have already spaffed away £60 million a year at the atheletes who are professionals, yes in the main they get paid to perform and whilst they tend to retire from sports earlier than most workers they also tend to pick up lucrative post sport careers usually in media so again usually paid for by us the taxpayer.
Now compare this to 1936 when a young Streatham girl couldnt afford the tickets to the Berlin Olympics despite having been selected to represent her country in the High Jump. Result?
Well she stayed ordinary Barbara Brown, married My Grandfather during the war and the rest is history.
So should we fund the olympics? I cant honestly say we should, not at least to the current tune. The whole disgraceful dirty laundry issue just goes to show how little they care for the taxpayer that keeps them in silk. The money should go back to the taxpayer and be used to fund the country, the whole country and not just the London centric politicians pet projects.
Will I be attending?
no way not in a million years would I waste a penny of my wages on that! Worst of all you have to have a visa card to apply for tickets. Add the handy link on the tickets website to apply for a card and they are just taking the piss. We are in enough debt already without borrowing cash at extortionate rates to see atheletes funded by my taxes come last again!

Steve was there and managed to zero his .243 ready for the foxes;
All in all a glorious day only marred by the dust.

Not a massive turnout for the pinks but worth recording;
As usual there were some quality T Shirts on display;
Best of all was a quality electric car, I hope she isnt too scareed to put her off a real one when she gets older;

If you want to introduce working gundog pups to water there is nothing finer than a sandy beach, a quick note though; go during school term and midweek. This meant we had a lovely trip to Camber Sands yesterday and despite the usual car park being closed for some luvvies filming we managed to get access to the beach within feet of the truck this time and no massive dunes to hunt for turds over;
Exitable aren't they?

Yes I know you get sea salmon but they are called that for a reason.
Another reason not to trust a skinny chef!

We used a tree for the gralloch this time, it did keep the carcasse cleaner but wasnt as easy as a table! She bled out really well as Mc Shug found out when covered in claret!;
So the Fallow bucks continue for another month and the Roebucks started this morning. As a note we saw a Roe Doe on the far side but didnt get a shot, she was in front of the high seat fleetingly so we know she will bring us a buck there soon enough! Add to that the impressive Muntjac sign and we have a busy year ahead of us again.
