Re: Any home edders out there?

Mine are now grown up, but they were both home educated. Daughter went to school at age 13, as she wanted to be a doctor and we found separate sciences a bit too much of a challenge. She isnt a doctor but has just completed her MSc in addiction psychology. Son went to college for A levels and is now...

Happy Birthday. Dont regret all the things you did or didnt do in your 20s - they have all gone to make you who you are today and that cant be bad.

That line says it all. It isnt then the supermarket that makes the decision, it's the consumer.

Re: I went out foraging, apparently I am not normal

Ignorant women. They say that to cover the guilt they feel as they are too lazy to actually do what is essentially something we are programed to do. To forage has to be the oldest life affirmation a Human Being has. You want to rephrase that Boboff? I'm a woman and I forage. We women arent all the ...

Re: How I lived on a pound a day for a year

I read it and thought I'd like to try that too. But then, she lived in Bristol with all its university entertainment and free this and that. I live in the sticks and cant even get into town for £1, let alone have any entertainment. I would have died of boredom! Not to mention starvation from lack of...

Re: Boosting immune system and antibiotics

Probiotic yoghourt should be taken daily for the duration of any antibiotics and for at least a month afterwards to re-align the bacteria in the gut. As to veggies, there's a lot of sense in the above post; can you/do you grow your own? The fresher you get them from harvest to plate, the better they...

knees

Anyone have any self help suggestions for strengthening knees? I have doscovered recently that mine arent as up to the job as they once were. If I crouch down, I dont seem to be able to get back up again without leaning on something; my knees and thights wont push my body weight back to upright - an...
