Re: Men and Money!!!

My husband and I also have joint and private accounts. We get our income on our private accounts, but we immediately transfer the bulk to our joint accounts, one for daily living expenses/petrol and one for reasonably fixed expenses like mortgage, taxes and insurances. Effectively we end up having m...

Willow for coppicing at boggy end. Orchard at drier end?

Re: Hello :-) Long time lurker

Welcome! And good luck in your quest to learn how to keep plants alive.

(fortunately in the garden plants are somewhat selfsufficient-ish; more so than tiny humans, I believe)

Re: Homemade cat food

Yes, I also think it would be more expensive and a lot of work. However, I also believe that a wll balanced raw diet would be very healthy. But it would be a mistake to only gove the cat raw meat. One of our cats is a hunter and she brings in mice, birds and an occasional baby rabbit. Now there appa...

Such a pity I (my body) can't process alcoholic drinks... sigh.

Re: Anyone have fibromyalgia?

I'm keeping fingers crossed for you that they'll find out what's wrong (and of course that it is - preferably easily - curable).

Any idea how long you'll have to wait for the scan? Must be nerve wrecking to have to wait.

Best wishes!

Re: Limiting internet

Mmm, yes. The internet can be sort of addictive. I sometimes do read a lot of stuff on the net and then I don't get "real-life" things done.

Sorry, can't help you with practical solutions, but if you feel it's wise to limit your internet time, then you should do that.

Good luck in your new flat.

Re: Anyone have fibromyalgia?

Deficiency symptoms include: Confusion, memory loss, or dementia. Dizziness, trouble maintaining balance, and fa...

Re: GE nightmare

There's nothing inherently wrong with GM. People against GM may have their own or their child's lifesaving medication produced by genetically modified bacteria. I don't believe for a minute that any of those people would rather have their child die than use evil, dirty, awful GM technology. Having s...

We're having unseasonably mild weather too with the same results: ready to eat chives and garlic chives. It's amazing.

Re: 2012 gardening goals...and new experiments you might try

The easy2grow containers are connected to a water container (also has the nutrients). They use a nifty valve system to fill the saucers under the pots with e.g. 1.5 cm waters. When all the water from the saucers has been taken up by the plants the valve will allow the saucer to fill with another 1.5...
