We don't have commitments so timing pretty open for us. I don't mean to be indecisive, just accommodating. It's easier for us with no children-adult or small fry.

I know DW mentioned his daughter's wedding sometime this year so I imagine he's got lots of activities this year.

Up to you if you want to throw out some dates now or wait a while. Indy, Richmond or Shelbyville. Pick what suits you & Brighteyes and next decision is when......

Human beings are also animals, and also meat. You are setting one life above another if you think you have carte blanche to kill any animal just because it provides meat.
Someday, I'm sure, there won't be any hunting or fishing anymore.
But, why not let old timers like Denny and me enjoy what we have been doing for YEARS?
It is a dog eat dog world in the animal kingdom.
There will come a day that these guns will be looked at like blunder-busts, funny antiques. People will look back like we look at Jed Clampett.

Before the treat of viewing the first 2 hours of Downton Abbey 3 last evening, PBS broadcast "Secrets of Highclere Castle", the setting of the program. That episode was actually the first of a mini-series which will also explore Hampton Court (Henry VIII home castle), the Diana Spencer home, and one other which I can't remember.
Anyway ... on the Highclere Estate (5,000 acres which exceeds Central Park NYC according to the show) is a deer-stalker employed full-time to keep the deer populations of 3 species on the estate under control. As you stated, there is no animal predator there on the estate.
Whether it was for camera or really true, the man out in the dark of the morn on watch and readiness stated that killing them was not taken lightly, and a moment of solemn respectful prayer is due to the loss of life. That seems like that's from the ancient and Celts, as it is with the ancient first peoples here.
I know Highclere Castle, near to Newbury (from before it was used in Downton)- took the catering wagon there a couple of times for horse shows. Had the chance to wander around the property - it is as impressive as it appears to be in Downton. It is the home of the Earl of Carnarvon, whose fore-bearer (grandfather or great grandfather, can't rmember which) was an Egyptologist who with Howard Carter found Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922. His death was the start of the rumour of a curse on the tomb - load of claptrap in my humble historical opinion.

With the extermination of the wolf population in England, Wales and Scotland in the 18th century, there are no natural predators for deer in the UK. Sadly, this means culling, for their numbers outgrow the land available to support them. Many were introduced by the landed classes form the 17th century onwards as they thought it trendy to have a herd of deer grazing in their parks. Needless to say, some escaped. In passing, they are far more destructive to vegetation than rabbits - in Scotland, they have huge high fences (as deer can jump pretty high) to limit their roaming. On the other hand - I love vension!

Spencer family own Althorp House in Northamptonshire. Recently, Diana's brother , the Earl of Spencer, had to sell off rather a lot of the family's goodies:

'Morning Tony...all very interesting, I missed the news article
although that is our paper of choice, so was interested to read it
here!
Where did I read recently that wolves have been spotted in England?
Or am I dreaming?
Growing up, I spent a lot of time near Lyme Hall, and we would see
the deer roaming freely...nice sight, but it never occurs to
children how they are 'managed'. I believe Denny has a point when he
says that they are of no more importance than a cow. I have enjoyed
Venison myself, and it is healthier than, say, pork.
I expect by eating meat we are as 'guilty' as those who provide it..
And me, the big animal lover!

And didn't the Native Americans thank Mother Earth and say a prayer of gratitude to the animal they killed for the meat and hide (?)? Something I've read in many a book written by a Native American.
I read that many years ago Quincy, and it stayed with me.
The Native Ame4rican only ever killed out of sheer necessity
never for the fun of it.

That is why I am so anti fox hunting which is banned here although
you would never know it, they carry on regardless.
Now if farmers would put an Alpaca in his field, there would
never be a problem with foxes.
If owners of chickens made sure they were housed at night...never
a problem.
I had chickens actually and made sure they were in the barn before
dusk.

You know El,
YOU are perfectly right to choose what's best,
as, there are umpteen other days for the cinema,
besides being out there miserable in the pouring rain.

Had a great day yesterday my 'Christmas present" from my 2 sons was
delivered, and we spent ages assembling it, well!! I was
just the tea and sandwich maker to be honest!! lol

my son who lives here & grandson did it all..
It's a beautiful recliner massage chair, perfect,
follows the contours of the body..
I LOVE it,
here's to lazy days in 2013! lol

and the wonderful thing is

I DON'T CARE, about being lazy, anymore I'm retired!
that's one of the great advantages of getting older
lol..

Priorities change!

In reply to a few other posts of
yesterday..
RM Quinn,
Yes that was a truly great video link..
the guy who went to so much trouble to befriend
the animals.

Denny,

In rply,
NO I'm not a vegan, I eat eggs and have milk..
but I'm always very careful to obtain FREE RANGE eggs..
it's ok by me, as an animal hasn't to be killed
for these products.
I'm careful to read the package and look
out for the 'suitable for vegetarian' ones.

We do the best we can, if any one of us were to
take these things to extremes, we'd scarcely venture
out at all, fearing, when we walk the common pavements, we might crush any tiny insects that were
underfoot.

We do the best we can.

AND..

I hope Denny, this hasn't opened any rift between
ANY of us here;
9YOU've always been a pleasant and decent]

we, each of us, are different in our core beliefs AND life
experiences
and, as the great GANDHI once said

'There's room for us ALL'

:)

just joking around of course, Morning Grace and El!

u will never get 100% agreement on any subject in a room full of people, but thats what makes being together so interesting and its also wonderful when our disagreements dont overtake our friendships..
