My assumption is he's just trying to get the most he can for it. I offered current market price, but that's about 600 less than I think he was offered last year. I remember when we were talking about it in february, he said if he was to break the tractor for parts, he thought he'd get around 1200 for the wheels and tyres, I thought he'd get about 800 though I didn't tell him that.

As you can imagine, I don't happen to have a couple of spare tractor wheels and tyres lying at my arse, so I'd have to buy some, and drop my offer to accomodate the extra expense.

First local quote for a pair of rims was 250 quid, then tyres are needed on top.

So I imagine it'll come down to further negotiations for it as it sits. It's not on it's original rims anymore, it's on bigger ones, and I must admit, I like the bigger ones, so we'll see.

He's in no rush, I'm in no rush

Shame it wasn't car rims, for I'm sure I must have about 40 of different sizes kicking about

Goodbyes are hard, especially when you've worked alongside some of these people for a very long time. I'm really gonna miss them, both as friends and colleagues.

350 quid for a pair of goodyear tractor tyres, with similar tread, at a dealer 40 miles up the road.

I've been spot on with my valuation, and fair.

I think an old man in a chair has been spot on.

there's something seriously wrong with the covid test results data... whether it's false positives, false negatives, incompetence, bad modelling, negligence or just criminal falsification. Is it even mathematically probable to have produced the spikes that have occured??? is it not much more likely to have errors in the data, or errors in the interpretation of the data. somebody please question the data, question the results, question the spikes before the economy and health service get shut down again

I managed to buy the 2nd last copy, of the first edition, and only edition with that title, of an old man in a chairs most recent book. And I'm delighted to say it arrived today :)

I was staggered to learn that according to the ONS in England and Wales alone, between December 2014 and March 2015 there were 44,000 excess winter deaths.

Yet there was no need for lockdowns, social distancing or silly masks back then.

When will this madness end?
