My 11 yr old Border Collie has bad breath. The vet says he is fine for his age but his teeth are a bit dirty as he has an overbite and finds it hard to chew. But the vet said cleaning them would be expensive because of the blood tests and the general anaesthetic and the anaesthetic is not without risk. He said it wasn't worth it.

Some varieties of holly have smooth edges anyway. Don't cut the branches for that, cut the bush to keep it the shape you want.

That's what I do, but with butter, like your OH.

HELLO FORKERS!

Thank you for all your good wishes, much better now, had soup and toast which didn't hurt. Have done HW, raining

Hope muscle is better soon BM, funny how that happens sometimes.

I thought BH was Better Half, but I don't think Dove's plumber is that.

My thin wardrobe is in the spare room. Every now and then my daughter takes something. Hate throwing clothes away, I may get thinner.

Morning all, what's left of it.

I feel much better now, lost 4lbs. Expect most will be put back soon though.

I liked clothes shopping when I was slimmer. I like M & S Per Una jeans, but I wish they did more blue shades, most are grey.

Photinia Red Robin, Eleagnus Gilt Edge, Choisya Ternata Sundance. Have a look on Google. All evergreen.

The reason you blanch veg is to destroy enzymes that change the flavour. However, if there is sugar present, like with soft fruit, it isn't necessary. Sweet corn contains a lot of sugar for a vegetable, so if you eat it within about 3 months you can freeze without blanching, if you want to keep it for 10 - 10 months you should blanch it.

I have found a website which explains more about enzymes.

KEF, swallowing alcohol sounds a good antiseptic idea, but I don't feel like it - I'll try it again when I feel better.
