Re: What is wrong with T***o?

I get your point that the masses don't care or don't know there are choices, but I do. I have to do what I think is within my capabilities. I can't make choices for those people who live in the 14th floor of a high rise... but nor do I wish (for them or me) to live in a world where there really is ...

Re: Only 17 pence!!!!!

I just kind of make the recipe up as I go along. Portions are about 1/3 fat 2/3 meat plus other ingredients. If you find liver too strong use some chicken or game. I gently fried off a chopped onion in butter added the liver, which I had soaked in milk for a few hours 'cause it was ox, don't bother ...

Re: Hens, patios and dogs ???

Why not put a few planks around the run and put down some earth and gravel for them to scratch in, 6ins would do the trick, and they would happy little chooks We'd certainly give them things to scratch in. wooden floor/big deep crates. We couldn't give them grass as the area is just not big enough,...

Hens, patios and dogs ???

Our garden is all stone slabs. I would really like a couple of hens. We have an area of 6x8 foot which could be dedicated to the hens run with a hen house sitting on top. We'd make the house and run fox proof. It is only a small garden and we have two dogs. They would be able to 'sniff' through the ...

Only 17 pence!!!!!

Wow, I was amazed! I went to my local butcher farm shop for some liver. I wanted to make some pate. I was uming and aring between Lamb's liver at £5.06 p/Kg or Pig's liver at £4.00 p/kg and saw Ox Liver. It was priced at 80pence p/kg. I actually asked if it was incorrectly priced!!!! YES, came the a...

Re: celing airer

We had one in our kitchen in our childhood home. It was near the coal boiler. Mum never fried anything (she hadn't heard of curries!) so smells weren't a problem.

However one time Dad's home made red! wine squirted over all the white washing - including Dad's dinner shirt!

Re: Recycled Valentine - brilliant!

Cool

The year before last I found a great card that I gave to my husband from our dogs.

I found it again when decorating the tree for the Christmas just gone, so I gave it to him again. He didn'r realise, but I'm no good at keeping things to myself, I told him! He didn't mind.

Re: Open fire - help/guidance needed

Keep looking. I have a tiny little woodburning stove that has moved house with me several times. I think it was made by Esse. It's dead easy to install. Basically the flue pipe sticks out of the back. You shove it into the fire place and then seal up the fire place with a piece of plasterboard (whi...

Re: Soap Nuts - tried and tested - and verdicts?

I was struggling with deciding between soap nuts and ecoballs.... We were in the Oxfam shop at the weekend and they were selling ecoballs - so we took the plunge. Have washed the sheets, done a dog blankets wash and a coloured wash too. All fine at the moment and smell fresh (just waiting to see if ...
