been forever since I have logged onto this site, but I do have some experience in brambles.

If the brambles are really thick, they will need to be broken up with a spade/long stick to a more manageable size. Generally under the new green growth it is just dead bramble. Once you have hit them down to about waist/knee height, you can pile them up and burn them where they are, or you can just move them to the side, they rot down fairly quickly.

Depending on how much time/effort you want to spend, you can either dig out the roots if they are really big, or just cover them with a tarp, which should kill them eventually.

But if you are at the trails often, it is quite easy to just dig up any roots which are sprouting, and they should be gone reasonably quickly.

So, do I find someone like you cow to begin an index fund?

You just need a broker to sell you them. In america there is an app called robinhood, which has no fee trading, which is the best you can really do if your not investing six figures. In the UK I use DeGiro, which has commission free ETFs, and very low prices for trading anyway.

Where do I select an index fund? I spent a half hour googling about and sorta understand.

If your in America almost always the best thing to do is S&P500, I believe Vanguard do one with a low operating cost. It essentially buys a share in every company in the top 500 companies. It then goes up (or down) with the market. Many choose it because it is very diversified (if the price of raw materials goes down, then mining companies share price drops, but manufacturers increase) This means that your stocks arn't very volatile. On the down side it means you wont make hundreds of thousands in months. But it will generally outperform interests rates and is one of the safer ways to do it on the stock market. Also, keep putting money in no matter what, it is too difficult to time the market.

Also was just about to post this. Dreadful, did so much for the sport, icon and legend. Thoughts go out to the two kids and wife.

Harrow Skatepark is really close to me, similar style, SO many cool features

Been looking for titanium collars for the Ratchet, similar to your old ones. Still havn't found some which I liked nearly as much as yours. Any chance you have a pair lying around?
