Re: Cream replacement for pavlova

Another vote for custard, I was in the same position and used the yolks to knock up a creme patissiere which was according to the birthday boy "best birthday cake ever" I also stuck heaps of strawberries on it and drizzled in dark chocolate...

Re: upside down tomato planters?

I suspected as much but the boys love an experiment. Our tomato is definitely moving upwards, it is "J" shaped but none too healthy looking. I will give another week or so in the name of "science" and then I think I will make a tomato planter out of a bucket as suggested!:)

upside down tomato planters?

My boys and I are doing and experiment, we have planted two tomatoes of the same variety ( an open pollinated heirloom , naturally!) in containers, one is a cheap hanging pot and the other is an upside down tomato planter (also cheap... it's a theme around here) to see if either grows better. I am u...

Re: Recognition at last

oooh the power and the responsibility! Congratulations that sounds fun! Here in Aus if you don't want to upset people it's best to avoid anything environmental as well as religious or political... oh and sport... but I think sex should be a safe topic!

Re: Men Only

well lady shavers are (for the most part) rubbish and gimmicky and utterly useless and now I just steal one from my husband (but NOT the one he is currently using- that is just mean and blunts the blade)... I have known some women who could rival density and barbs of any man though...funnily enough ...

Re: Men Only

Just to be a smart a*se and pop up uninvited, this info is good for ladies who shave legs etc too and we usually shave more area than you fellows (unless you have a very large head):P so have more need for said razors!

Re: Sodding flipping smegging computer!

Run a scan for virus, malware and anything else. Clear all your browsing history (could be you have run out of memory somewhere). Clear out your cookies, do a disk clean up. You may just have a bung up somewhere in the system and clearing out all the corners will get rid of it. Good idea - Ccleaner...
