Re: How Rude!

Letter was given to the PA as he was in a meeting. I'm not looking for any kind of begging or self gratification. Simply some kind of recognition of reciept. When you've worked somewhere for 10 years you'd think your boss would say something.

Re: Mulching Leaves with Lawnmower

Personally, I use the lawnmower to pick them up and then use the leaves and the grass clippings for chicken bedding. They love it. Zoe Our chucks love this as well, although we don't use it as bedding. We put it in a big pile at one end of their run and they'll spend hours scratching through it, ea...

Re: Fat Chart by Country.

What are those percentages of? Sorry but the scientist in me wants to know more about the reliability and accuracy of the data because at the moment all they represent is some numbers in a list. Is it percentage of elephants? x factor watchers? people who wear hats?

Re: Black Onion Seed.

We don't use a bread maker so don't know what effect it would have in a bread from a machine. Naan doesn't really suit a bread machine anyway, much better to grill on the highest ...
