This is a 1990s sewage treatment plant. In simple terms the rotating discs provide a large surface area for bacteria to grow. The bacteria eat the sewage (yum yum!) Advances in technology mean it needs electric to work and the mechanical parts wear out. This is a few thousand pound being spent on fitting a new drive chain and sprocket.

Ah... progress! A wonderful thing to behold Kenny.

Here in Hoyt Hectares (we have been decimated) - we have no such contraption.

We have a great big tank which overflows into a zig-zag, gravel filled ditch in the garden (yard). As the yard is actually mostly a forest, the trees thrive on the material produced and we have never needed to service this green, odor free, natural mechanism for the 15+ years we have lived here.

But it is a one family unit and we need 0.75 acres (or whatever that is in hectares) of trees and natural things to feed off it.

As I say, progress is a wonderful thing and may you all enjoy it.....

I say Kenny I like your new thingy, do they call it an avatar?

You obviously got the hang of driving better than me. I could not get used to reversing.

All the best Peter

Avatar - Yes!

The avatar shows me at Blackpool boating lake way up past the North Pier (I think its closed now)

I have always had an affinity with tractors and after recently researching my family tree found that my ancestors were farmers in Cumbria. I have always loved the scenery of that area and now wonder if it is somehow in my genes?

Regards

Kenny

Kenny how strange.

I have recently checked my ancestors on my father's side and found that my great great grandfather Linneaus had a hostelry called the Hare and Hounds about 2 miles from where I was born, his son Linneaus (Jnr) had a hostelry about half a mile away and his brother Jeremiah one one mile away. I recently changed my avatar from Poppies to a glass and can of ale!

It's all in the genes!

All the best Peter
