    When you live so far away from Cornwall, I suppose you depend on the BBC to give your postings that 'local' feel?

    "Since the time the Domesday Book was written, farming has taken place on the Lizard, a mild - but often wild - land in west Cornwall." So, according to the BBC, we've only been farming down here since shortly after the Normans whooped the Saxons at Hastings. Clearly, before then we must have been simple hunter gatherers, of no fixed abode, just following the herds of game from season to season. Do you think that it was the Normans that came here to civilise we heathen Cornish with these modern food production methods, or was it a small band of fleeing Saxons, that brought their far superior technology with them, and set up a settlement here? Or, could it just possibly be that the BBC have decided to ignore thousands of years of Cornish history.......................................? and if so, why? It can't be the case that the BBC employ reporters that are either too lazy to actually do a little research, or have an agenda, personal or corporate, that they are incapable of diverting from. Anyway, good luck to the family, and shame on you BBC.

    And to think PaddyTrembath, people from as far away as Newcastle over in Engerland read this rubbish and believe it to be true.

    "we heathen Cornish"? Are like the rest of the people of this land. A good old "mongrel" mixture, of Celts, Anglo-Saxons, Normans and a dash of every other race on the planet.

    ""Since the time the Domesday Book was written, farming has taken place on the Lizard, a mild - but often wild - land in west Cornwall." Two lines, out of a whole article, PaddyTrembath. But enough to upset you, apparently. Tut.

    "The Amiss family, who previously farmed in Devon, will start their 20-year tenancy in September." It would have been nice if a home grown family were to have taken up the tenancy, but with these kinds of skills it must be hard to come by these days, such as making sure the breeding pairs of Cornish Choughs etc are well cared for and their habitat is not disturbed too much.

    King Arthur is supposed to return as a chough. You be careful YC that you're not re-incarnated as a chough.

    Not forgetting the introduction of the red squirrels Mike, we know how squirrels are partial to a few nuts now and again.

  • Carvath  |  January 16 2013, 11:02AM

    They both seem eminently suitable for you

    Trying to bring this back to the farming mode, for those who are interested that is. http://tinyurl.com/a86sa5g http://tinyurl.com/az27stl
