From the train

Farmers always moan. Earlier this year they moaned there was no enough rain, then there was too much rain then not enough sunshine and on and on.  If you believed the reports the potato harvest was doomed, bread would cost lots more and the end of the world was nigh. Well judging by the scenes on the way to Bridlington the harvest was coming in and it looks pretty much the same as last year and the year before that. The weather was perfect, dry and sunny and staying that way for about a fortnight just at the right time. And though some yields are down others are up. I guess you shouldn't always believe what you read in the papers.

  1. The end of the world is announced every year. It's never been true before, until now. Now it's true, of course.
