Hello John! I''m also new to the forums so we''ll just be newbies together, shall we? My husband is from Scotland (Glasgow) and had read MEN a couple of times there, borrowed from a friend, so yes there is at least one other reader in the UK *smiles*. It is to be hoped that you''ll be able to connect with other readers closer to you, but in the meantime, it''s a pleasure to ''see'' you here.

There was a "Mother Earth News Chapter" in High Wycombe, years ago, when such existed.

I can tell you that the library next to the bowling green (Chippen House?) had a complete set, donated by that chapter, but that was eight years ago. I was attached to the Air Station there. I know that there is a ''lending library program'' in the UK, so you might find resource that way.

What, no rabbits? I though all there raised ''English Spots''. Many made me a fine meal at ''The Green Man'' pub.

There are quite a few readers here in New Zealand too although MEN is very expensive here....now about $18 NZ....about three times the cost of a similar-type NZ magazine.

Nice thing about the internet--it''s international.
Haven''t been to NZ yet, but do make it to the UK from time to time.

--So, tell us what you''re doing these days!

Here in the UK we look as though we are coming to the end of what in our area has been a long dry and sometimes hot summer.
The veg garden is looking tired and we have harvested all our potatoes and have the freezers well stocked.
We take delivery of 2 weaner pigs in 3 weeks so we will need to check and repair the fences to their paddock.
I hate fencing I never seem to get it right.

A long, hot, dry UK summer is a rarity. Been there lots of times - almost always in the summer. Always wet. Wet to the bone. I suppose we all just shrug and say, "May be global warming. eh?" I don''t know. I suspect that it is. The more the govt. denies it, the more I believe it to be true (a maxim that is true of anything the govt. says.). Up here the Gulf of Georgia in BC, I have seen ''new'' species of jellyfish all summer and ''old'' species seem to have moved north. Are you seeing any UK changes that may not be ''official'' but are obvious nevertheless?
