-Hello and welcome to Ffermio.

0:00:170:00:19

-I'm in Llanuwchllyn to meet a man...

0:00:190:00:22

-..who has become a familiar face

-on the screen over the past year.

0:00:220:00:27

-He has won awards

-for his agricultural abilities...

0:00:270:00:30

-..and for his mental

-and physical skills.

0:00:310:00:33

-Is that enough of a clue?

0:00:340:00:35

-Find out who it is shortly.

0:00:360:00:37

-Also on the programme, Meinir

-joins blacksmith Daniel Thomas...

0:00:390:00:44

-..and Daloni

-is among chickens near Ruthin.

0:00:440:00:49

-But first, I've come to

-Brynllech Uchaf Farm, Llanuwchllyn.

0:00:500:00:56

-This is the home of Rhodri Jones...

0:00:560:00:58

-..who had a very successful year

-last year.

0:00:590:01:02

-He was a member

-of Fferm Ffactor's winning team...

0:01:020:01:06

-..and also won a large sum of money

-on The Cube.

0:01:060:01:09

-He clearly likes a challenge.

0:01:100:01:12

-But what's he like at home?

0:01:120:01:15

-In any business, it's important

-to have a competitive streak.

0:01:220:01:27

-It helps you to improve yourself

-and what you do.

0:01:280:01:31

-Unfortunately, one of my weaknesses

-is that I'm overly competitive.

0:01:310:01:35

-We think of Fferm Ffactor

-as being quite intimate.

0:01:360:01:39

-I imagine that being on The Cube

-was terrifying.

0:01:390:01:43

-It takes guts.

0:01:430:01:44

-There were so many things

-going on at the time.

0:01:450:01:49

-I applied and thought

-I'd never hear from them.

0:01:490:01:53

-One thing led to another.

0:01:530:01:55

-I was also organizing a wedding

-at the time.

0:01:560:01:59

-Next thing,

-we were filming within a week.

0:01:590:02:03

-Tell me about home - the farm.

0:02:030:02:06

-This is a very windy spot.

0:02:060:02:08

-The snow-capped Moel Llyfnant

-and Arenig are behind us.

0:02:090:02:14

-It can't be easy here.

0:02:150:02:16

-It can't be easy here.

-

-No, it's not.

0:02:160:02:17

-One of the main problems here

-is the lack of shelter.

0:02:170:02:20

-It limits the choice of breeds

-that we can keep here.

0:02:210:02:26

-Welsh Mountain sheep like it here.

0:02:260:02:29

-The way forward for us...

0:02:290:02:30

-..is to improve the breeds

-that we're able to keep here.

0:02:310:02:34

-What about conservation?

0:02:340:02:36

-Are you in the Glastir scheme?

0:02:370:02:39

-We've gone to Glastir and try

-to use it to make improvements here.

0:02:390:02:44

-We've planted hedges,

-and fenced a lot off...

0:02:450:02:48

-..to try to improve shelter

-and to help us in years to come...

0:02:480:02:54

-..not just to get the payments.

0:02:540:02:56

-There are exceptional views here.

0:02:570:02:59

-There are exceptional views here.

-

-It's a favourite spot of mine.

0:02:590:03:01

-If I'm in a bad mood,

-I come here to gather my thoughts.

0:03:010:03:06

-There's something very relaxing

-about the place.

0:03:060:03:10

-Brynllech Uchaf is a 640-acre farm.

0:03:120:03:15

-As well as sheep,

-Rhodri keeps 38 Welsh Black cattle.

0:03:150:03:20

-Welsh Black cattle

-are one of my big passions.

0:03:230:03:27

-What better opportunity

-to promote the breed...

0:03:280:03:31

-..than to say on The Cube

-that I need money to buy a bull?!

0:03:320:03:36

-You won 50,000.

0:03:370:03:39

-I'm sure there are people knocking

-on the door with bulls to sell!

0:03:390:03:44

-Everything goes up in value

-if people think I'm interested.

0:03:450:03:49

-The Welsh Black cow is special.

0:03:490:03:52

-There are very few cattle

-that are cheaper to keep...

0:03:520:03:56

-..and that can produce wonderful

-store animals at 18 months old.

0:03:560:04:01

-As you've seen, the terrain here

-isn't the most productive.

0:04:010:04:06

-We need a cow that is productive

-on a low input.

0:04:060:04:09

-Cutting costs is important today.

0:04:090:04:12

-If the money

-that we're able we get in...

0:04:120:04:15

-..is reduced or limited...

0:04:160:04:20

-..we also have to limit our costs.

0:04:200:04:24

-In my opinion,

-the Welsh Black cow is ideal...

0:04:240:04:28

-..and serves its purpose perfectly.

0:04:280:04:31

-You're 38 years old now.

0:04:310:04:34

-Yes, poor you!

0:04:350:04:37

-You've been fortunate enough...

0:04:370:04:40

-..to have been at the helm

-of this business for many years.

0:04:400:04:44

-Yes, I've been very lucky.

0:04:440:04:46

-When I was very young...

0:04:460:04:48

-..Mam and Dad were willing

-to let me make decisions...

0:04:480:04:53

-..so that I could learn

-from my own mistakes.

0:04:530:04:57

-Although we're still

-three-way partners...

0:04:570:05:01

-..they've been very supportive

-of the changes I've wanted to make.

0:05:010:05:06

-I hope that they're happy...

0:05:070:05:11

-..with the way we've progressed.

0:05:110:05:13

-Rhodri is the fourth generation

-to farm here.

0:05:130:05:17

-His parents remain a big help

-to him from day to day.

0:05:170:05:20

-Llew, how did you decide...

0:05:210:05:23

-..to hand over the reins to Rhodri

-when he was so young?

0:05:230:05:28

-That's how you keep

-young people interested.

0:05:280:05:33

-For one thing,

-it helps them improve.

0:05:330:05:36

-He had his ideas,

-and we worked together...

0:05:360:05:40

-..though we didn't always agree.

0:05:400:05:43

-I think it's important

-to provide opportunities...

0:05:430:05:47

-..to keep them interested

-and keep them in rural areas.

0:05:480:05:52

-What did you think of him

-on television...

0:05:520:05:55

-..winning Fferm Ffactor

-and then all that money?

0:05:550:05:58

-Every penny helps us poor people.

0:05:590:06:02

-Exactly. It's not easy for you.

0:06:030:06:04

-Exactly. It's not easy for you.

-

-He enjoyed it, so we left him to it.

0:06:040:06:08

-He told me

-that the only way he could do it...

0:06:080:06:12

-..was knowing you were here.

0:06:120:06:14

-I'm sure it helped, us entering

-a few shows on his behalf.

0:06:140:06:18

-Llew, thank you for your time.

0:06:180:06:20

-Llew, thank you for your time.

-

-Thank you.

0:06:200:06:22

-And for the welcome.

0:06:220:06:23

-I kept out of the way,

-hoping you wouldn't want to see me!

0:06:230:06:27

-As if he was a shy man!

0:06:290:06:31

-Rhodri is a member of the NFU Cymru

-Next Generation Policy Group.

0:06:340:06:39

-Last year, he went to Brussels...

0:06:390:06:41

-..to find out more about the EU's

-vision of the future of agriculture.

0:06:420:06:47

-I wonder what he thinks...

0:06:470:06:49

-..will face our young farmers

-in the years to come?

0:06:490:06:52

-I was surprised

-by the support from Europe...

0:06:530:06:57

-..and their resolve that farming

-must have a prosperous future.

0:06:570:07:01

-Tom Tynan firmly believes...

0:07:020:07:05

-..in securing a bright future

-for agriculture in Europe.

0:07:060:07:10

-In my opinion, leaving the EU

-would be a terrible mistake.

0:07:100:07:15

-Being a part of the European family

-is crucial for agriculture.

0:07:160:07:21

-You also live in an area...

0:07:210:07:24

-..where there's a wealth

-of young, enthusiastic farmers.

0:07:240:07:30

-What kind of future do you envisage

-for them at the moment...

0:07:300:07:34

-..when each agricultural sector

-is facing a crisis?

0:07:350:07:38

-When we're surrounded

-by this countryside...

0:07:390:07:42

-..and people realize that we have

-these wonderful views...

0:07:420:07:47

-..because of agriculture

-and our agricultural systems...

0:07:470:07:51

-..we must ensure that the industry

-thrives for years to come.

0:07:510:07:55

-Providing we do things

-as effectively as possible...

0:07:550:08:00

-..I think there's a bright future

-ahead in the long term.

0:08:000:08:05

-That's it for this part.

0:08:070:08:09

-Join us again after the break...

0:08:090:08:11

-..when Daloni visits a farm

-that produces 30,000 eggs a day.

0:08:120:08:16

-Welcome back.

0:08:280:08:29

-This week, Daloni has been visiting

-an enterprising farm...

0:08:290:08:33

-..which has significantly expanded

-its chicken business.

0:08:330:08:37

-Here at Ty'n Celyn farm

-in Clocaenog near Ruthin...

0:08:390:08:42

-..there is a huge new shed.

0:08:430:08:45

-A shed which is home to 32,000 hens.

0:08:450:08:48

-Catrin Jones and husband Bruce...

0:08:520:08:55

-..started with a handful of hens

-eight years ago.

0:08:550:08:59

-Slowly, the hobby

-became a livelihood.

0:08:590:09:02

-Eight years ago,

-we decided to buy four chickens...

0:09:030:09:08

-..as something for the boys to look

-after, to learn about animals.

0:09:080:09:14

-Then we bought a few different

-breeds for them to see a variety.

0:09:150:09:20

-After a while, we had too many eggs

-so we decided to get more chickens.

0:09:200:09:26

-We then started to sell some eggs.

0:09:260:09:29

-We started with 50 hens, then after

-a month, a 100, then 200, then 500.

0:09:300:09:36

-We were out all day, every day.

-selling eggs.

0:09:370:09:41

-Four years ago, there was talk that

-caged hens were going to be banned.

0:09:410:09:48

-As we had the land available,

-we decided to build a big shed.

0:09:480:09:52

-Now we have 32,000 hens.

0:09:530:09:56

-What's that small shed over there?

0:09:560:09:58

-That's where it all started.

0:09:590:10:01

-It's there to remind us

-of where we started.

0:10:010:10:05

-When you were building the shed...

0:10:050:10:07

-..were you sure there was

-a market for the eggs?

0:10:080:10:10

-We were fortunate to get a contract

-with Lloyd's Animal Feeds.

0:10:110:10:15

-They have helped us tremendously.

0:10:150:10:18

-They have taught us

-what to do with the hens....

0:10:180:10:21

-..and are always available

-if we have any problems.

0:10:210:10:24

-How does it work

-between you and them?

0:10:240:10:27

-They order the chickens for us...

0:10:270:10:31

-..but then we have to buy feed

-from them.

0:10:310:10:35

-They find contracts for the eggs...

0:10:350:10:38

-..and at the end of the season, they

-find a place for the chickens too.

0:10:380:10:43

-For how long do you keep the hens?

0:10:430:10:45

-We keep the hens until they are

-72 weeks old, which is 14 months.

0:10:460:10:53

-How many eggs leave here every day?

0:10:530:10:56

-We produce around 30,000 eggs

-every day.

0:10:560:11:01

-Every day?

0:11:010:11:01

-Every day?

-

-Yes, every day.

0:11:010:11:02

-A lot of work, Catrin.

0:11:030:11:04

-A lot of work, Catrin.

-

-There's a lot of work...

0:11:040:11:06

-..but it's nice to see eggs coming

-down on the conveyor belt.

0:11:060:11:10

-Despite having a contract

-with Lloyd's Animal Feeds...

0:11:120:11:15

-..Catrin still takes eggs to Ruthin

-mart every Tuesday and Thursday.

0:11:160:11:20

-She also supplies local shops.

0:11:200:11:23

-There are chickens

-in every nook and cranny, Catrin.

0:11:360:11:39

-They seem to get louder.

0:11:400:11:42

-They think we are talking to them.

0:11:420:11:45

-Hello, girls!

0:11:450:11:46

-Hello, girls!

-

-They are responding.

0:11:460:11:47

-Can we go in?

0:11:480:11:49

-Can we go in?

-

-Yes, of course.

0:11:490:11:50

-Their cries increase in volume

-as our voices get louder.

0:11:500:11:54

-It's very funny.

0:11:540:11:56

-Hello, girls.

0:11:570:11:59

-Do you have some eggs for us today?

0:12:000:12:02

-They're everywhere, Catrin.

0:12:020:12:04

-They're everywhere, Catrin.

-

-Yes, indeed.

0:12:040:12:06

-They are free to go in and out

-as they please.

0:12:060:12:10

-They have the freedom to do

-whatever they like during the day.

0:12:100:12:14

-Where do they lay?

0:12:150:12:16

-In the centre

-there are some orange curtains.

0:12:160:12:20

-They go behind them

-to lay their eggs.

0:12:200:12:24

-They can get a bit

-of peace and quiet...

0:12:240:12:27

-..and then the eggs roll

-down the conveyor belt.

0:12:270:12:31

-The belt goes around twice a day.

0:12:310:12:35

-It carries the eggs

-into the packing room.

0:12:360:12:40

-What type of hens are they?

0:12:400:12:42

-This breed is called Lohmann Lite.

0:12:430:12:46

-We've had these since the beginning.

0:12:470:12:50

-It's a breed which has worked well

-for us.

0:12:500:12:54

-They seem very happy.

-Free and happy hens.

0:12:550:12:58

-Yes, and we also give them

-something to peck on.

0:12:590:13:03

-You can see the cones, bottles

-and cartons.

0:13:030:13:07

-Something to keep them happy;

-what a hen wants to do is to peck.

0:13:080:13:12

-If they're happy to peck those

-things, they won't peck each other.

0:13:120:13:17

-How much upkeep is involved;

-cleaning, washing and the like?

0:13:170:13:22

-They are pecking. Cheeky!

0:13:230:13:25

-We muck out once a week.

0:13:260:13:28

-The waste is put straight into a

-trailer and sold to farmers...

0:13:290:13:35

-..who spread it on their land

-as a fertilizer.

0:13:350:13:39

-They look so healthy, Catrin.

0:13:390:13:42

-I think that has to do with the fact

-that they're free range.

0:13:430:13:48

-They can go outside.

0:13:480:13:50

-In this shed...

0:13:510:13:52

-..the hens are also on different

-levels and can roam freely.

0:13:520:13:57

-You've heard of the "pecking order".

0:13:590:14:00

-You've heard of the "pecking order".

-

-Yes.

0:14:000:14:01

-This is where it is.

0:14:010:14:03

-Sorry!

0:14:060:14:07

-It's getting quieter.

0:14:100:14:12

-The stronger ones have arrived.

0:14:120:14:15

-Sorry, ladies,

-but I had a bit of a fright.

0:14:150:14:19

-With the pecking order,

-the stronger ones live at the top.

0:14:200:14:24

-If they're a bit weaker,

-they have to go somewhere else...

0:14:240:14:29

-..so they don't get bullied.

0:14:290:14:31

-It's very clever.

0:14:320:14:33

-Huw, you are Catrin's father.

0:14:400:14:43

-Huw, you are Catrin's father.

-

-I am.

0:14:430:14:44

-When it's busy, you are summoned.

0:14:440:14:47

-Sometimes, I'm called at short

-notice if someone hasn't turned up.

0:14:470:14:51

-What are you doing here?

0:14:510:14:53

-Sorting them by picking out

-the big eggs...

0:14:530:14:57

-..the dirty and cracked ones.

0:14:570:15:00

-I put them in different places.

0:15:000:15:02

-The rejects.

0:15:020:15:03

-The rejects.

-

-Yes, the rejects.

0:15:030:15:04

-Not many to be seen.

0:15:040:15:06

-No, on the whole, it's quite good.

0:15:060:15:10

-You are Huw's grandfather.

0:15:100:15:12

-Huw, son of Catrin and Bruce

-is over there.

0:15:120:15:16

-How are you, Huw?

0:15:160:15:17

-How are you, Huw?

-

-Fine, thanks.

0:15:170:15:18

-What are you doing?

0:15:180:15:19

-What are you doing?

-

-I'm weighing eggs.

0:15:190:15:21

-Weighing them?

0:15:210:15:21

-Weighing them?

-

-Yes.

0:15:210:15:22

-How heavy should they be?

0:15:230:15:25

-How heavy should they be?

-Is Taid a good fella?

0:15:280:15:28

-Is Taid a good fella?

-

-Yes.

0:15:280:15:31

-Does he behave himself?

0:15:310:15:32

-Does he behave himself?

-

-Yes.

0:15:320:15:33

-Does he work hard

-or is he a slacker?

0:15:330:15:35

-He works hard.

0:15:350:15:36

-What will you have for supper?

0:15:370:15:39

-An omelette probably,

-looking at those!

0:15:390:15:42

-Now that the hens have a new home...

0:15:440:15:46

-..the old buildings where they

-used to roost have been renovated.

0:15:470:15:50

-The two holiday homes here now

-are really worth a look.

0:15:510:15:55

-Six years ago, there were about

-300 hens in this house.

0:15:570:16:00

-We then built the big shed

-so this wasn't being utilized...

0:16:020:16:05

-..so we decided to convert

-it into two holiday homes.

0:16:050:16:08

-We haven't looked back since.

0:16:090:16:11

-You must be busy,

-all things considered.

0:16:110:16:14

-There's always something

-to be done around here.

0:16:140:16:17

-What are your hopes for the future?

0:16:170:16:19

-I hope we go

-from strength to strength...

0:16:200:16:22

-..that the hens continue to lay,

-that people still come to stay...

0:16:230:16:26

-..and that one day, the children

-will take an interest...

0:16:270:16:30

-..and hopefully, they will help out.

0:16:300:16:33

-There's nothing better than seeing

-a skill passed down the generations.

0:16:350:16:40

-Meinir has been to see

-a blacksmith of over 30 years...

0:16:400:16:46

-..who is determined that the skills

-he's learnt won't die with him.

0:16:460:16:52

-Daniel Thomas is

-a third-generation blacksmith.

0:16:560:16:59

-He has a large base of customers

-across West Wales.

0:17:000:17:04

-The craft runs through his veins.

0:17:050:17:08

-He learnt all his skills from

-his father and his grandfather.

0:17:090:17:13

-My grandfather, father and uncle

-were blacksmiths in Gorsgoch.

0:17:150:17:18

-When I was at school, I was always

-over at the smithy making things.

0:17:190:17:24

-I went to college

-in Hereford for four years.

0:17:250:17:29

-I finished there when I was 21.

-I've been at it since then.

0:17:290:17:33

-Was it hard setting up

-your own business?

0:17:330:17:36

-It was.

0:17:360:17:38

-It's like every service, treat the

-customer well and you get the work.

0:17:400:17:44

-Where's the demand? Do you

-go to it or does it come here?

0:17:440:17:48

-Most of it is away from here. No-one

-has time to bring the horses here.

0:17:490:17:54

-They want you to go to them

-to shoe their horses.

0:17:540:17:58

-Some horses are shy of the horsebox.

0:17:580:18:01

-You have to go out

-and shoe it in its own stable.

0:18:010:18:05

-What's the appeal

-of being a blacksmith?

0:18:050:18:08

-You meet different people every day.

0:18:090:18:12

-There's a great deal of satisfaction

-in shoeing a horse...

0:18:120:18:17

-..that's been lame for a long while.

0:18:170:18:20

-You do the job and then the horse

-wins at a show. That feels good.

0:18:200:18:26

-It must be nice

-to sustain a family tradition.

0:18:270:18:31

-It was great

-to see Ioan this morning...

0:18:320:18:35

-..making a horseshoe

-from a 12-inch strip of iron.

0:18:350:18:39

-He made this this morning.

0:18:390:18:41

-He has a list of customers

-to visit today.

0:18:460:18:49

-The first is Mair Davies,

-Cysgod-Y-Brwyn, Newcastle Emlyn.

0:18:490:18:54

-This mare does a lot of jumping

-so she needs support for the heels.

0:18:560:19:00

-We place the studs in here.

0:19:000:19:04

-The studs go in.

0:19:040:19:05

-When Mair is jumping on the day,

-she'll have studs on both sides.

0:19:050:19:10

-They come out after the competition.

0:19:100:19:13

-Like studs on

-a rugby or football boot.

0:19:130:19:16

-Different studs

-for different conditions.

0:19:170:19:19

-They help with show jumping.

0:19:200:19:22

-It gives the horse confidence.

0:19:220:19:24

-Is every horse different?

0:19:240:19:26

-They are all different.

-You get to know the horse.

0:19:270:19:30

-You do it every six weeks

-which helps.

0:19:310:19:33

-Some are tame and quiet,

-others are nervous.

0:19:340:19:37

-How dependent are you

-on the blacksmith?

0:19:410:19:44

-You have to book him in

-every six weeks.

0:19:440:19:47

-He comes when we want him,

-morning or afternoon.

0:19:480:19:51

-If one of my horses loses a shoe.

0:19:510:19:53

-He asks when the next show is

-and he turns up straight away.

0:19:530:19:57

-How crucial is shoeing the horses?

0:19:570:20:00

-In the summer,

-she always has studs put in.

0:20:000:20:03

-It's so important

-against the clock that she can...

0:20:030:20:07

-..turn quickly and

-avoid slipping into fences.

0:20:080:20:11

-She has to feel confident

-she won't slip.

0:20:130:20:16

-It's worth every penny.

0:20:170:20:19

-It's worth every penny.

-

-Yes, it is.

0:20:190:20:20

-Daniel is an expert in the field.

0:20:220:20:24

-He's won five successive national

-titles for shoeing shire horses.

0:20:240:20:29

-He is also the official blacksmith

-for the Royal Welsh since 15 years.

0:20:290:20:33

-With nearly 50 horses to shoe...

0:20:340:20:37

-..every single week of the year

-he's a very busy man.

0:20:370:20:41

-Is there a technique for each horse?

0:20:460:20:46

-Is there a technique for each horse?

-

-Every horse is different.

0:20:460:20:48

-There's more to do than just

-getting the shoe on the foot.

0:20:480:20:51

-You have to

-prepare the hoof for the shoe.

0:20:510:20:55

-You have to assess

-what the horse is expected to do.

0:20:550:20:58

-This is called a bar shoe.

0:20:580:21:00

-It's for horses with

-injured tendons or narrow hoofs.

0:21:000:21:05

-It needs a lot of support

-at the back.

0:21:050:21:08

-That improves the foot.

0:21:080:21:11

-There's less pressure on the front.

0:21:110:21:14

-You need them to be standing up

-straight for dressage and jumping.

0:21:140:21:18

-That means the hoof

-needs lots of support.

0:21:190:21:22

-What else do dressage horses need?

-You've got a famous one today.

0:21:230:21:29

-Yes, I'm doing a horse

-out in New Quay today.

0:21:290:21:34

-It's won a British title

-for Dressage.

0:21:340:21:37

-It needs new shoeing every week.

0:21:370:21:40

-We have to ensure

-it has enough support.

0:21:400:21:42

-The feet have to be perfectly

-balanced and moving correctly.

0:21:430:21:48

-You feel the pressure

-with that type of job.

0:21:480:21:52

-He has to be right

-for the big shows.

0:21:520:21:54

-You also like having

-apprentices about the place.

0:21:550:21:58

-I've been training them up

-for the last decade.

0:21:590:22:02

-I have Ioan here from Aberystwyth

-and Cahill from Ireland.

0:22:020:22:06

-I help them and they help me.

-It works both ways.

0:22:060:22:09

-I've been very lucky

-to get a place with Daniel...

0:22:110:22:14

-..because people doing

-the pre-farriery course...

0:22:150:22:19

-..struggle for places

-and I've got one close to home.

0:22:190:22:22

-Are you enjoying it?

0:22:230:22:23

-Are you enjoying it?

-

-Every single minute.

0:22:230:22:25

-It's a lot of work and there's

-lots to learn but I enjoy it.

0:22:250:22:29

-Working as a blacksmith

-is very taxing and physical.

0:22:310:22:34

-Daniel obviously loves his work.

0:22:350:22:39

-What's the future for you?

0:22:410:22:42

-I hope to carry on for many years.

0:22:430:22:46

-I hope my son, Rhodri, will come

-back and work full-time with me.

0:22:460:22:51

-He's working away in Welshpool.

0:22:510:22:55

-He's a blacksmith too so

-he'll be the fourth generation.

0:22:550:23:01

-I hope he comes back

-before I'm over the hill.

0:23:020:23:04

-That's all from the first

-official episode of the Spring.

0:23:140:23:18

-The mountain tops may

-still be mottled with snow...

0:23:180:23:21

-..but there are

-signs of an early spring.

0:23:210:23:23

-It will all have settled down by May

-when we want to put the cattle out.

0:23:230:23:28

-It's nice to be looking forward.

0:23:290:23:32

-We'll look forward

-to your company next week.

0:23:320:23:35

-Until then, from me and the whole

-Ffermio team, goodnight to you all.
