Re: RE FRIENDSHIP CAKE

Hi I dont know if it is the same recipe (mine had yeast??) but the one I had was left for 5 days (2days left then three days after) does that make sense?? Cannot find the recipe now though!! Good luck

Re: Would You Go For This Type of Holiday?

Think it sounds like a great idea, especially if it was not too costly for families, maybe a camping option and a fee to participate in the activities would be an idea? I think you need to get the idea off the ground before someone copies it! :hugish:

Our ducks were great in eating all the slugs, unfortunately they also ate some of the seedlings and trampled on others! so maybe follow earlier advice!! :lol:

Re: Make my teeth white again?

Hi just a thought, some mouthwashes cause teeth to discolour. Chlorhexadine is the one which comes to mind! I agree with everyone, go to the dentist and check. Bicarbonate of soda is difficult to get in portugal too but I found it at the local chemist...not the cooking shelf in the supermarket! Migh...

Re: waterless urinal

Thanks everyone! We do use a bucket with a lid in the bedroom particularly at night. Unfortunately we have not got a "quiet" corner in the barn (except the bedroom) yet to send visitors, its a bit open plan yet. ONE DAY we will have a cubicle with a bucket. Also have trained my husband to pee on the...

Re: waterless urinal

They do it outside in the daytime but when the weather is bad.. resent having to find a bush...its a bit wild outside our barn! Also I insist they water different bushes each time!! the urine will go to the garden eventually, I just think a urinal will be a good option.

waterless urinal

:scratch: Has anyone got experience with urinals? We have a composting toilet but my husband and male visitors seem to object to sitting to pee..(prefer to stand outside in the rain ...I cannot understand it but hey!!) and as we have a urine diverter they would need to. Also other issues (splash etc...
