Hi Sumo, if you have ever seen plasterers mix plaster they use a kind of drill with a long stiring thing (talk to a plasterer) so im getting the local blacksmith to make me a similar thing to fit my electric drill but the end that would stir the plaster will now have rough blades on it to cut the seaweed etc, so a bucket ,drill set on slow to start and slowly mix away till its all slush, pour through an old pillow protector and Bobs your wotsit ,i find nettles and comfry also really good and quick and free.

Hi Mike,a short time ago Kate and i bought our final  house ere on the coast,nice bungalow, big garden just what we wanted with a nice local pub,within 10 weeks i was 60% paralysed with the doctors very worried, they said they had,nt seen such deterioration so quick before, at this stage i was using a wheelchair and often  when alone was in despair. I decided to set myself a target.The first was to get back into the greenhouse and mend the glass i fell through when i first  became ill, the second was to get back to my local to see our friends and ava pint. i had a 5 hour op on my spine a short time ago and now ,im on crutches,no chair, walking on my own , and this Friday were going down to the pub for the meat raffle and a pint, the glass in the greenhouse will get done shortly. Mike go for it step by step have a target and remember its better to overshoot than aim too low, from what iv read everybody ere is with you, it just a test you,v been sent same as me , bit at a time matey you,ll get through just like me, Ava good en,  Alan
