      > Merlin, You were doing quite well until the end when you lapsed into insipid railings. Try writing shorter posts and finish before your brain freezes and convulses into rantings. My BET<brain energy time> runs a different course. If I write too long I produce boring nonsequetors and often erase what does not make sense. I have been researching your region and see why you quote Colridge. I am suprised to learn you have little to do with the Roman times as only two very small Roman forts have been found. How about the Exmoor ponies, would you care for their future. Would you provide vetinary care for those glorious little creatures. I would and I have never seen them. I once owned white park ancestrial english cattle. I find it easier to rally support for animals as so many people are such selfish clods.
