Emmmmmm actually, these days, many farmers and golf courses now have massive underground rain storage tanks for watering purposes.
Like Vic/why me? I have a problem getting a definitive reply from M. Flys regarding his statement above, particularly the bit "many farmers" who "now have massive underground rain storage tanks .....". I've tried asking my friend Google, but found nothing, so can he please give me some actual examples of farms with these storage tanks in place?
It seems perfectly reasonable to me for Vic/why me? to insist on a reply to a valid question. Dunno what the fuss is about. This Flys person isn't really Teapot, is he?

Syd..
That's Mr Flys' MO. Make a statement as if it's fact then go all girly when called out. I've been there many times before & never really expect anything other than obfuscation & false indignation.
The fuss is being made by others with some strange sort of agenda trying to score cheap points off the back of my reasonable questions. I don't lose any sleep over this sort of thing.
This 'Flys person' is not Teapot (that's Anthony) but same meat, different gravy if you get me drift. ;)
