Re: Ethical Clothing

I shop at thrift shops mostly. Swap when I can. Once every couple of years, I'll go to one of those discount outlets. I wouldn't buy clothes I couldn't try on first. My preference would be to swap with people I know. Thrift stores make profits for what fits their purposes. Defining ethical gets quit...

Re: Flower remedies: any thoughts?

I visited the botanical gardens in Munich quite often. Walking thru the gardens was a huge help to me. Also, found a lily pound nearby. Vitamin D supplements, as D-3, are quite helpful. I find jumping on the rebounder, (a mini-trampoline) helps. My walks, and Callanetics. I didn't have much success ...

Re: The beans made me think of it

RRE: I'd like to make homemade marmite, even with beer, if you've still got the recipe. I use a German health-food-store version. Over here, it's called Organic Gourmet savory spread. Mmmmmm, I do like the stuff. I agree, duplicating Heinz beans would be nice. Anyone manage to duplicate Cross and Bl...

Re: Stevia fans???

I left my plants outside, and didn't even harvest the seeds. Might try to plant the seeds. But, intend to just get new plants from the nursery in the spring. It was one of those things I just didn't "get around to".

Anyone tried drying and grinding the leaves?
