Re: Gluten free pasta recipes?

I guess that you can make it in just the same way as wheat pasta. I agree that it won't be robust enough to go through a pasta machine, but if you eat eggs, making egg pasta with the rice flour would be stronger. Is the problem a wheat allergy or a gluten allergy (celiac disease)? If the problem is ...

Re: Can anyone recommend me...

You not only need product liability insurance, you also need to have every product you make safety tested, according to EU cosmetics regulations. You can buy some things like soap bases, lip balm bases which have been safety tested and such like from places like the Soap Tub, but you're limited by w...

Re: hide goodness?

I think children and parents have pre-ordained roles. Children are destined to wind their parents up in any way they work out has an effect. Parents are duty bound to embarrass their children at every conceivable opportunity. The trick, as a parent is to get through the former while waiting to enjoy...

Re: who believes in god (these days)

If you go to church, of course you'll take your children. At some point they'll reach an age when they ask their own questions and make their own decisions. Hopefully whatever that is will be fine, with you and everyone else. You don't have to divulge any deep seated reasons for your beliefs, whatev...

Re: Ground source heat pumps

Hey, someone told me that these gshp things draw so much heat from the surrounding area that the surface is virtually permafrost. I'm sure he's pulling my leg, but if you site one in your garden can you use the ground above it?

Re: winter egg laying

Someone put another thread on about small chicken houses, which had a link. I had a quick look cos I really want hens. It said something about providing lighting if you want year round production. I didn't read it thoroughly but maybe you could find the link - I think it was a new post.

Re: BALLS (dryer)

Snap! It's also why I invested about £15 in balls :wink: in the hope of making it more efficient. As a side line I've got an A-rated dryer, which dries on a cold cycle but it takes hours and I mean hours - 7-8 to dry a load. Can't work out how that's better - I presume that longer on cold uses less ...

Re: restoring sad looking wooden furniture...

Apparently you can get rid of the drinks rings by ironing a thin cloth over the area with a hot iron.

Can't tell you if it works cos I don't possess an iron - or any clothes that require one.
