My Bantam (mini Kiev) wasn't so lucky. In the high wind the fence blew in and she got out and something got in.
I thought she had gone for a wander but she stayed local but over a wide area.
Ps I thought you had a chicken rest home. Or are they laying again.
Don't forget to appease the wife they can just wake up dead or have accidents. Like it pulled its feathers out and jumped in the oven etc.

I think it's time to lighten the mood elsewhere.

What's the definition of the bravest man in the world??

The man who comes home drunk, covered in lipstick and smelling of
perfume, then slaps his wife on the backside and says: "You're next,

Man walks into the bedroom with a sheep under his arm while his wife Is >lying in bed reading.
Man says: "This is the pig I have sex with when you've got a headache."
 Wife replies: "I think you'll find, that is a sheep."
Man replies: "I think you'll find I was talking to the sheep."
A man walks into his bedroom and sees his wife packing a suitcase.
He asks, "What are you doing?" She answers, "I'm moving to Sydney. I

Later that night, on her way out, the wife walks into the bedroom And

 As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, a
drunk standing behind her watched as she placed the items in front of the
While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk calmly
stated, "You must be single."
The woman was a bit startled by this proclamation, but she was
intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since she was indeed single. She
looked at her six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly
unusual about her selections that could have tipped off the Drunk as to her
marital status.
Curiosity getting the better of her, she said, "Well, you know what,
you're absolutely correct. But how on earth did you know that?"

The drunk replied, "Cause you're ugly."

Just watched a few of her YouTube vid's, a lot of talent there for sure.

If she was invited to various rock concerts she could well bring the house down, but may well show up her aging stage compatriots as rather average instrumentalists.
I think her audition for "The Voice" could well founder though.

It's a paradigm. If people have got used to motor racing being noisy then that's what they expect. That paradigm will be dispelled when we see 500+HP electric racing cars.
"Enjoyment" of loud noise is like listening to your music at 100dB. You choose to listen to it and enjoy the volume.
A hovercraft or other noisy vehicle at 97dB is not a pleasant experience and people don't enjoy it despite it having a lower sound pressure level than the music.
With the racing it's that mental connection between noise and perceived power, that's why stupid teenagers put loud exhausts on their mopeds and 1.2 Corsas. They think they sound more powerful.

Things change, perceptions change and Ecclestone is a dinosaur.

An interesting snippet from the Mercedes Club Gazette ( No, I am not a subscriber) Reference the new Merc engine.
"Much has been made of the sound of the new cars, which are far much quieter with a much subdued growl.
Bernie Ecclestone said after the Australian race that he was "horrified" by the lack of volume that was being produced complaining that the lack of dramas a  result of the new sound could have an impact on ticket sales".

Oh! If only we had the same problem or perhaps that where we are going wrong  ;) ;D
