I sort of agree with what others have said - yes, a routine is good - although I don't go out to work & have no routine whats...

Re: Complete Dried Cat Food

We got a little moggy from the local cat rescue & he's an odd little character. One of my customers told me that he was so friendly... ?? All I ever see him doing is sleeping on the bed all day & then he's out all night - doesn't really have anything to do with us! :lol: Anyway, I started off feedin...

Re: Birmingham Pride

So not fair. :( I used to steward at the Blackpool Pride & we always had such a fantastic time, making new friends every year. Oh, and then there was the 'after party' at Funny Girls as well! Sadly, Prides really haven't caught on as far 'west & country' where we are & although they have a Pride day...

Re: Chickens For Meat? - Cost/Breed/Feed?

Yep, I have 3 more rooster boys ready to go for the oven over the next week or 2 plus a turkey stag who has taken exception to the husband.... :mrgreen: I put approximately 2 dozen assorted eggs in the cabinet each day & they all sell at €1.50 for 6, so that's about €40 to €45 a week. The feed costs...

Well, personally I think Denmark are right to ban Marmite. Then everyone can just have Bovril on their toast, like what I do..... :lol:

Re: You cannot beat the taste of home grown tomatoes

Ahhh, right. I get it now! OK, so in MY house, I'd be better off freezing them then, because cupboard space is SO short. If I had enough storage space for jars & cans maybe I'd rethink the bottling thing - but popping them into a bag & into the freezer... well that's a whole new story. Thanks Guys! xx

Oh now look what you've gone and done okra - you'll get Odsox started! Moi ? Surely not. :iconbiggrin: I think you may be preaching to the converted a bit Okra, although I agree wholeheartedly with you. One thing though, if you like home grown so much, why don't you grow them all year round ? If I ...
