Thanks for the welcome. And no worries about the reply from MKG. I'm sure that, in the words of the great Nanny Ogg, he's just an old softy really. I'm giving away half my roses and hopefully moving most of the rest to the orchard. I figure if I put them in among the fruit and veg they'll do two thi...

However, lsm, it does your cause little good to crit. Ms. Sykes (15 papers and not one of them referenced) and then tell us that there are actually hundreds of them, but you don't reference any either. Of course. My apologies. Try http://www.reflexology-research.com/Abstracts.html as a starting poi...

If you massage the stomach with one flat hand above the pelvis and below the ribs in a clockwise direction (the direction of the digestion) this can make a huge difference. There are also a couple of baby mas...

I know this is a couple of months old but I thought I'd respond anyway. Where we live now (South Lincs) nits, are a fact of daily life. Just one of those things that kids get and no big deal.
