Re: Lemon hooch recipe ?

So two or three weeks on it still tastes yeasty. Do I just need to wait it out, or have I done something wrong? Any suggestions gratefully received as starting the next batch today.

Online dating; here we go again !!!!

So I raised some £££ on fleabay and decided to launch back into the cyber dating world. The free sites are too full of flakes, cheats and weirdos. So I splashed some cash and joined Eco Lovers :grouphug: a few interesting profiles, we shall see. I have tried other dating sites, with some success [ob...

Any recommended Apps or podcasts ?

Ok, so I have been working hard selling 'stuff' on fleabay :cheers: and am now the happy new owner of an iPod Touch. Not very ish, but I love to have music to ride/run with on really long days, and also audio books for driving. Venturing into podcasts too. Broke many ipods so now have warranty too !...

Re: Dog passport & France.. "dangerous dogs"
