Re: Milk intolerance?

Not just milk, cheese, butter, yoghurt, soup and countless other things so check labels and although this is not the weather for it don't forget ice cream

Cutting out lactose is not easy. I would still see the Doctor to make sure.

Re: Milk intolerance?

I'm not wishing to offend but why not go to your Doctor for an accurate diagnosis? My grandaughter is lactose intolerant and has the necessary medication for such times as she needs it. By the way the poor girl was intent on a career in the services in particular the Army, she went on a college cour...

Re: Pomegranate Cranberry Juice

This is brilliant on muesli use instead of milk and leave for at least 1/2 hour. (I leave it overnight). Cranberry and raspberry is good too.

Re: dismayed at a t3$c0 free range chicken

Speaking about this with the other half she said she had seen something about this on a TV programme concerning the welfare of chickens and maybe the burns were from electric fences. In the programme the fences were very near to the feeding area.

Care at Christmas

At the risk of being boring please let me give a word to the wise from a retired Fire Prevention Officer. If you have a real Christmas tree remember it is a living plant and requires watering to reduce needle fall AND to reduce the risk of fire. The video is of comparison tests between a tree that w...

Re: PM has lost it

So cut the benefits for criminals and immediately the families and children will suffer. I'm afraid that in the heat of the moment the last thing that will come to the minds of said criminals will be the consequences. In the bad old days of capital punishment there were still as many murders as ther...

Re: music that has moved you !!!

A hymn "As I kneel before you"
"Everybody hurts" REM
"Nimrod" played by any military band
"I vow to thee my country"
The song sung for the Irish rugby team "Ireland's Call"
These and many more will do it for me.
