For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Thornham Farm Shop, Seend Cleeve, nr Melksham

The weekend ... and what an excellent opportunity to explore a lane I've often seen off the A361 just down from The Bell near Seend Cleeve.


The track drops off the edge of the hill, across cattle grids and runs unfenced through fields of cows; it's narrow and you pull onto the grass to pass other cars.


At the end of the track is "The Fat Hamster" Cafe, Thornham Farm Shop, an old bus parked up (as extra sleeping quarters?) and some paddocks of animals so that the customers know what they're buying from the shop.


There's quite a range of different breeds of pig at the farm - the butcher proudly telling me what they sold (and me carelessly forgetting). I think there's a Tamworth Red in my pictures, but I don't recall it being mentioned; I do recall mention of "Old Spot"

See Thornham Farm Shop's own web site ... and it's a great half hour's diversion on a Saturday afternoon. See Oklahoma State University for details of pig types (seriously good site) ... and work out which of the ones picture here are Welsh, Gloucestershire Old Spot, Berkshire and Tamworth.
