In order to offset the rising costs of my machining habit and building my sheep shearing machine I have started a new business.

It is at the moment strictly a self pick up product but I may move into the mail order business model if things go well.

Of course you all will get a discount. Just use the coupon I will list here every month.

It is a Bio dung. No pesticides or herbicides used on the pastures. It is low in fat because my dogs chase the sheep.

I'm surprised you don't have a worm farm!, not the parasitic liver fluke and roundworms but earthworms!, what the hell happens to the worms they buy of you god knows but I'm suspicious of special fried rice!
It all fertiliser, human goes on the ground in some parts of Germany too

My wife found the picture online and sent it to me. I got a big laugh out of it. Sheep poo must be a fluctuating commodity. Note the ability to change the price at will.

Sorry George, I know selling is not allowed on this board but times are getting tough. If you allow this to stay on I will let you have a few bags free. One hand washes the other.

Okay, I let this one slide. I have multiple addresses and names I'd like you to send it to, if that's not too much trouble.

If you are going to send it by ship then don't forget to right "Ship High In Transit" on it (that is what was printed on the bags of "fertilizer" in the past and how it got it's name), that way it will stay out of the bilge water. You don't want it getting wet.

BF,
I knew your "ad" was a joke, unless you're telling me that Germany has left the Euro for the US Dollar currency.

BF,

I can foresee a poo extracting module for your shearing machine.

P.S. On the second thought, as soon as a sheep sees the machine, it may need no additional modules...

Yeah, sheep no poop; price gotta go up...;)

Politicians? They need a constant supply...

Amen...

On the subject of BS, it has reminded me of a cartoon that used to hang in our office for the benefit of sales people , it read " I'm somewhat of a buls^^^er myself but I do like to listen to an expert."

That picture was taken at our North American headquarters. This is a Global company.

It's probably a retirement project for some guy who spent his life writing yield managment software for airlines and hotels. He couldn't help himself.
