Re: A busy time

My mum used to work in the canteen at the Marmite Factory in Burton, she used to bring some home from the staff shop. I liked it, then and like it now, but don't buy it. Too expensive and too much salt.

Re: Sloe Gin

I wouldn't mind trying that, if you could make sloe vodka. I hate the smell of gin. Someone left me a jar of home made damson jam on the doorstep, a friend possibly, I don't know. However, I gave it away. I don't eat jam because of the high sugar content. If someone asks me if I liked the jam, I wil...

Re: Off Grid Living

This video has just been posted by John who I mentioned above. I got the story a bit wrong, the piece of land was next to the marital home. He bought it from the person who owned it. In the video he describes how over a period of ten years, he was able to gain permission to stay there. Worth a watch...

Re: TV Licence

You can get Gardeners World on yooootoooob. Some of them have been badly edited due to copyright but if you check different channels, some of them are ok. Try this one.

Mossy Bottom, a smallholding.

Is it ok to put a link in here to a video of a young man who bought a plot of land in Ireland and has been working towards self sufficiency. Daniel lives in a caravan while he is growing vegetables, he has pigs, chickens, and ducks, has built a cabin to house volunteers who come to help, and is even...

Re: Replacing the decking

Yes, it is safe. Decking doesn't have feet, there will be no footprints. Your link has been removed by the way.

Re: Replacing the decking

Re: Bt phone charges

You might have removed the link, but the user name is the same as the business name, and can be googled. They won't be back.
