Hi every one I am Mark "Monk" Thorn, born and raised in Billericay Essex, Now living in Southern Saskatchewan Canada. I have a small (By local standards) organic farm,960 acres total, I farm with state of the art equipment----for 1980. I am far from rich cash wise but family and friends wise I think I am the richest ever. And if it has any relevance I was born in 1958.

Hello, and welcome, from someone of a similar vintage
It's a good place to have a sit down and a cuppa, catch up with what folks are up to.
Your lifestyle sounds very sane and healthy

Welcome to this side of the gate, Monk.  
Your age, wealth and present location won't hold you back amongst this lot, I'm sure.

Many thanks for the welcome everyone, I have been here since 1976 Mo. I have family in Basildon Scottie! they live just around the corner from the Castle Main.  I always make a trip to Basuildon market when I visit home and try to get to Barlylands boot sale if there is one on.
