Hiya, As far as I'm aware, samphire is a coastal plant, growing on salt marsh land so it depends on the coastline. There's an old but good book worth investing in called 'food for free' and also the chapter in Andy and Daves new book, the selfsufficientish bible. I haven't seen anything else that re...

Never a truer word Ina. I'm stiff waiting for my honeymoon and we got married fifteen months ago. :shock: John did suggest that we go on a barge holiday. My first thoughts were 'if all I get to do is look at bl**dy hedgerows, I can do that at home!'. Then I discovered that he actually wanted to hire...

ok so I have to admit - I have been accused of perpetrating science in the past :sleepy2: so I also can see both sides of the coin. What strikes me is just how closely science and philosophy are related. I had a vague understanding of this before but now I'm studying psychology and psychotherapy, it...

Hiya Lois,

Thanks for the invite. I'd love to come but it's hard enough getting John to leave the county, let alone the country. He's never even owned a passport! :shock:
Mind you, say the word 'farming' and he soon changes his tune - it's amazing how far he'll go for a busmans holiday!

Rach.

The really worrying thing is that a lot of herbal remedy type stuff is not regulated at all and can (as pointed out earlier) still be dangerous. I'm beginning to think about sprog hosting (yep, I'm getting toward the age where it's now or never) and I'm looking at all my habits. One of those is a cl...

Hmm, a course on herbal medicine - sounds fascinating!

Love the idea of any form of more contemporary medicine, hence doing a hypnotherapy course. Good luck with the rest of the course!

Oh and by the way, welcome :cheers:

Carp?

No, it was definately a goldfish but still just as embarrassing :oops: as I'm sure that it had been nurtured and cared for just as much. Tiger is actually a bit of a sod, the feline equivalent of a hoodie. I've had complaints that he goes into other peoples catflaps and eats their cats food and he g...

Rabbits

My cats bring the odd rabbit now and again and have usually eaten them by the time I find them. They do seem to relish them and eat everything apart from the ears. If I have to dispatch things, its usually injured birds and a quick pull on the neck surfices. I have had your dilemma too, having been ...
