Thirty-Six Stages for the Flying Tippler Novice


by E. W. Matthews

1. When the youngsters are five weeks old, they should be removed from their parents and placed in a loft by themselves.

2. For the first two days or so, food and water will be left for them at will. This ensures that they can feed for themselves.

3. Then they should be fed by hand and the water trough withdrawn and only offered after feeding.

New Moderator at FT Group

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support you have given this FT discussion group over the past many years. It was an idea that started many years ago with a “list” that was run by list-bot. I don’t even know if the domain even exists today. Is there anyone today on FT that was on my list-bot discussion group? Anyone remember it?

Great to have you visit Canada, Dave!

Kathy is remembered by each and every visitor to the house as an exceptionally hospitable and amicable individual who supported her husband in every way.

CNTU Held it's AGM Jan 9th

The CNTU held its AGM Jan 9th, 2011 with about 25 members attending. We had quite the productive meeting. The members voted to define the English Flying Tippler into the constitution by a unanimous vote in favour, I may be wrong here but this may be one of a kind.extremely proud of the membership on this one.



Would like to take this moment to thank everyone for their patience in getting out this website. It has been a long time in coming. We know you will be pleased and will find that there is a lot of information here for everyone.
