A salute to the humble but versatile margarine tub

After putting another batch of these tubs in the freezer containing various homemade sauces/stock my mind wandered as to how many of these humble and simple tubs we have dotted around the house fulfilling a multitude of roles. When younger we used to turn them into boats and race them down the local...

Re: The Great Global Warming Debate

How many flights do politicians/actors/musicians/celebrities take to attend meetings/conferences/concerts (including those about "Global Warming" and "Saving the Planet") or flights just work at EU HQ? How many so called "Green" celebrities/musicians have fleets of jet...

Re: Max - Our rescued Street Dog

Glad to hear he is holding his own. I started taking Turmeric some weeks ago and have noticed the pain I had has got slightly better and that is arthritis. It also has black pepper in which is meant to make it work better/quicker. I have capsules and the advice is to take with food, did the vet men...

Re: How does your garden grow?

Hope you've not got too much damage to your crops Trev. The weather has been up & down here this week but at least no torrential rain or hail. Our butternut squashes, melons, cucumbers, tomatoes, aubergines all look like they have bullet holes in them from where the hail stones hit them. Our br...

Re: Geese - two unexpected additions!

google goats milk soap and there are plenty of hits If I recall, goats milk doesn't curdle like cows milk when the soap is being made. About 18 years or so ago I bought this book on handmade soap making (though I saw lots of new exciting books when searching for this particular title just now) and ...

Re: Geese - two unexpected additions!

Straight question Trev. I was offered both Geese and Ducks once but was told they can tend to be a tad smelly. Is that true ? Richard Bear in mind I am only into my second week? of geese keeping and my views may change as I progress down this road, currently our two geese are living in our porch/su...

Re: electric cars

Devils Advocate Alert So everyone will be able to afford to replace their vehicles with these super efficiencient electric cars will they? Hmmm.... Sounds like another plan to keep the population from travelling allowing the rich and elite to have sole use of the road system. Next they will want yo...

Re: Max - Our rescued Street Dog

Hi Trev I hope Max is holding his own Lindaxx On the weight loss curve again at present and he has lost all the lustre to his coat, we have just put him on a turmeric paste that we make as one vet recommended trying it, seems turmeric contains Curcumin which has cancer fighting properties, might ju...

Re: My beautiful Ruby aka Boo

Trev ourl Rube's is on metacam and as you said loads of tlc. I understand Metacam is the main medication prescribed, Max was on this but his legs and paws broke out in sores which the vet said was one of the possible side effects so we ceased them as he was struggling to walk. Thankfully, they have...

Re: Geese - two unexpected additions!

Strange creatures these geese, they grow rather rapidly, drink water non stop, love being picked up and stroked, their down feels more like fur than feathers, they never leave you alone always following you around when they are given their freedom. They make a variety of noises that can be distingui...

Re: Chicken keeping in the summer

Thanks, the replies have some useful information for me. I understand (after consulting Mr Google) that apple cider vinegar is still okay in the hot weather but in smaller amounts so we have reduced the quantity given. Egg shells are being collected, baked and crushed then given back to all the chic...

Re: How does your garden grow?

Six lovely large yellow melons now sitting in our kitchen, some will be turned into wine, some frozen and some enjoyed in the coming days, we have around eight more ripening but have lost many due to the massive hails stones, torrential rain and flooding these last few days. Our grape vines have als...

Three days, three runs and three lovely sightings, first run I came across two baby tortoises happily tucking into some clover, second run I met up with Mum and baby hedgehog wandering through a forest then today I was stunned when a badger came out of the hedgerow, had a good look at me before head...
