Re: Hello there

Welcome xone.

Do you, by any chance, have any up to date knowledge re planning permission and wind turbines - especially in Scotland?

If not, welcome anyway :lol:

Re: Postponing the dream

I agree with Annpan the BF needs to have got another job before leaving - current situation being a bit unstable n'all. If you really want to move in with these people maybe you could get together with them first and discuss all your worries. Maybe they share some of them and will be glad of the opp...

Re: Liberal media resurgens

Don't know about sharper reporting Rod. I've only noticed over the last few years that the media seems to spend less time going out finding and reporting on news than creating it out of nothing more than speculation and rumour.

I spend a lot of time swearing at the TV.

Re: What's for dinner?

Me too Annpan.

Could you persuade my OH that this is absolutely crucial to our survival.

OK maybe overstated a little there, but desirable.

BTW - Butternut squash korma (mother only likes korma so we bung chillies in after serving hers) tonight.

Re: Fife diet anyone?

Looks really interesting. I didn't listen to it, just read about it on the web. Some of the comments were more interesting - aren't people odd? There was one about how it couldn't work because they couldn't grow coffee! For heavens sake do these people really only see things in black and white. Why ...

Re: A box of one's own

Oh me too Shirley. And unfortunately it's the English who seem to be the main culprits. Too much equity in property. Without being too harsh, with a bit of luck the current financial difficulties may curtail this practice, and drop prices sufficiently so that locals, on local incomes, can afford to ...

Re: advice please

In the garden in our new house we discovered it was full of rubble - ex MOD buildings and junk. We put in raised beds ~1m2 so we've only had to clear the stones from those areas. We dug them 1 spade depth, put cardboard in the bottom, backfilled and added compost to each one so we've got about 2 spa...

Re: What's for dinner?

Well, we were going to have a curry. But I realised that I'd defrosted some hare legs (from Lidl!!!) and so they've been slowly stewing with a bouquet garni and some juniper berries. I'm going to tart it up in a few minutes with some veg and port and serve it with roast potatoes and parsnips. Smells...

Re: Trouble in paradise!

Several people have told us about a lunch club she can go to a couple of times a week. She's been reluctant but I've now got a good way in for her. I've been asked to do some massages for them so I'll be able to take her along with me. I'm starting to get to grips with the situation, just telling yo...

Re: Rotation

The main problem are the brassicas. As long as you don't grow them in the same place (danger of getting clubroot). That's really important because once you get clubroot in an area you can't use it again for brassicas for many years. Most other groups are more easygoing, I think. Have you got raised ...

Re: A box of one's own

Virtually everyone I know whose daytime activities involve dealing directly with the public just want to close the door and do their own thing when they get home. Other acquaint...
