Re: un-vaccinated children

We had to get up half an hour before we went to bed.

And we hadn't been vaccinated! O_O

Re: Should Fictional Legendary Magician User Names be Banned

I am slightly ashamed to admit this but, my partner actually works on Geoffrey of Monmouth (although I don't think he ever published his translation of the Vita Merlini): he says he is 'quite mad and horribly subversive', which I believe to be a compliment (i.e. Geoffrey is, not my partner. Although...

Re: Real Bread

I look at a forum and they have a running post about what they had for dinner. Delicious, nice tasting also, but not food for people, more often than not, leading a sedentary life style, meaning watching TV. The food presented is often what one would use when on a threshing crew in the forties on t...

Re: Fat Chart by Country.

Yes, I'm odd too - I was there with my 2kg bag of white sugar the other day, making marmalade. (And it's very nice).

I think I might have been in bed eating toast just at the thought of having to play squash: at least you actually did it. (Get well soon though!).

Re: Substitute you for my......

I do think cookery programmes put people off cooking. I know with my mother, for example: she moved inexorably towards ready meals at one point, and I think that was partly because she felt her type of cooking (i.e. pastry and potato based) wasn't really good enough and she ought to be doing somethi...

Re: Re-upholster an armchair

I would say, yes you can (you're not gluing it to the batting though are you?) - perhaps use superglue rather than spray adhesive? I'm not sure how strong spray adhesive is (it might be very strong though in which case take no notice of me). Also I do tend to codge things up a bit so this may be the...

Share your successes 2012

OK, perhaps a bit late for a new year thread ;-). I don't know about you but 2011 was a bit so-so for me, so this year I'm going to (try to) concentrate on the positive :cheers:. (Apologies to any of you reading this who have just broken various bones etc, I know in some situations the positive is a...
