Thanks for that Ina, I'll definately be there, the Old Fruitmarket is great, good venue for seeing bands too, last went there to see Lamb Chop - you probably won't have heard of them. Pam.

You would need to have exceptionally strong hands to squeeze enough water out, the paper log/brickette maker is ideal, it's mechanical, works by lever and is really very satisfying to use. We have lots of jokes here in this very silly household about me 'making my own logs'. Sorry to be so coarse!

I make these paper logs, I find they are brilliant for starting the fire and mine last for ages if you burn them with a combination of coal and wood logs. There is something really satisfying about making them and leaving them to dry out (that takes an age too). Please use rubber gloves when making ...

Beware when ambling through Amsterdam, cyclists there will show no mercy and we found ourselves having to throw ourselves out of the way of a crazy cyclist many a time, seriously they are mean!

Hi Shirlz,

I to am intrigued by Stonehead catching rabbits with his bare hands and would love to know more, my poor jack russell spends all his walks in the woods chasing them to no avail. I've seen people tickling trout (on tv), do you tickle the rabbits Stone head? ha ha

Hi Kirksty, welcome to the site, I am on here sporadically, the advice is great. I live just down the road from you in Stirling, just where the Wallace Monumment is. I have a veg patch and am in the process of organising myself to get some chickens!

Not going to do my top 5 as too difficult, it depends so much on your mood at the time, but my favourite film is Amelie, it will restore your faith in humanity, it's funny, heart warming and just wonderful. I highly recommend it it. Jean de Florette and Manan Des Sources are also in my top 10. Heres...

Hi Cir3ngirl, that's lovely that you are doing your bit for educating the youngsters, good for you. So, do you just steep nettles in water for a couple of weeks and then pour the liquid onto the soil? I did this last year and what a stink from the bucket, my goodness! I was amazed, but I am interest...
