View Full Version : Manure.

How can a previously 'successful' club become so dire with the simple retirement of their (undoubtedly) great manager?

Wouldn't a good manager have delegated day-to-day operations to the extent that things would continue after his departure?

Is this a new thread on the RAF Club?

I thinks this is G-CPTN's contender for the 'Cryptic Thread Title' competition.

Do worms micturate?

Do worms micturate?

Solids, as in peelings, egg shells etc go in, liquid comes out. That's the extent of my knowledge on the matter :ok:

Ah, so its advice you are after G-CPTN

I think its worm pee actually

Wasn't there a discussion recently about obscure thread titles???

Having learned the subject of the post, I find the title matches it perfectly well :)

Sounds like they need to get their affairs in ordure. Or maybe they have.

Actually my first venture into entrepreneurship involved manure. As a schoolboy, I had a before & after school job strapping for a trotter trainer. The manure used to be put in a heap, which got bigger & bigger, and initially, I used to take some (with his permission) for my garden. Eventually it became clear that he would be happy if I removed all the manure, so I took it as it was produced, bagged it and sold it to those who would pay. Had they known, they could have just asked and had it for free.

Where there's muck, there's money.

That's how it is (or becomes) with those who keep horses.

In the late 1970s I extended my garden to include a previously steep bank down to a stream by building a 2 metre high retaining wall. I filled the void behind the wall with well-rotted horse manure which I carted in fertilizer sacks in (and on the roof of) my large estate car. Must have shifted 50-60 cubic metres of the stuff - all FOC.

As plurdled gabbleblodgets on a lurgid bee.

I once had about a 15' long trench I filled with horse manure I got from a horse owning acquaintance. It was maybe about 2 cubic yards, filling the back of my beat up pick-up truck. I topped the trench with good compost and soil and planted it in asparagus. For the next five years I lived at that house I had unlimited, copious amounts of healthy asparagus, so much that I delivered grocery bags full to ten or so neighbors and friends.

It was also the best asparagus I've ever tasted. This was in Central Valley California in the 1980s.

When I lived in Sydney there was a circus that used to visit annually, camping on what passed for a village green. They would put up a sign to the effect that people could help themselves to as much animal manure as they wanted. Said manure comprising lion, tiger, elephant, zebra, etc. It was a few decades ago.

So yours truly visits with a trailer and fills it, piled high. Dumps it at the bottom of the garden. I am sure that most PPruners are aware that every continent has it's own characteristic smell, well that evening after a warm to hot day, and a slight drizzle, Pymble smelt like the African Veldt. I loved it having spent time there, but the neighbours weren't too impressed.

But now you have a situation where at least one leading player doesn't want to be there, dislikes the new manager and doesn't want to play for him,

Fortunately, that player is the only one actually attempting to earn his (I admit ridiculously high) corn. If he wasn't, the red side of Manchester would be propping up the league this morning.

I vote this thread to be the one with the best thread drift of the year.

Very little interest in the antics of a bunch of overpaid and overhyped primadonnas and much interest in the fascinating activities of worms, without which the world's agriculture would collapse.

Brilliant :ok:

My neighbour, who is a dairy farmer, sells the excess cow slurry at a good profit. He needs some for himself, because it saves him having to buy several tens of tons of fertiliser each year.

Definitely a case of "where there's muck, there's brass"

A local farmer has recently bought an old ex MOD fuel storage site and is hoping to turn it into a biodigester plant. Slurry etc goes in, the worms and wee beasties do their bit and the resultant gas will power a gas turbine generator. The byproduct is fertiliser that goes back on the fields.
Genius. Except of course the dozens of lorries and tankers in and out every day. Locals not happy bunnies.

G-CPTN...."How can a previously 'successful' club become so dire with the simple retirement of their (undoubtedly) great manager?"

I might be on a total drift. Are we talking David Moyes?
