Yes biofreak.

Please forgive me. I still keep reading your reports and they do turn out true like you say but I often, forget to say thank you for them.

This is a very big ( long,over due) Thanks to you and I hope that many other people understand and appreciate what free knowledge you give to us .

You are a star and never forgotten


The World's Most Expensive Food

Is that not what we allow to be done. Joe47?  Shark fin and whale death for experimental (sorry sientific reasons) reasons!!!!

"In the 21st century, dog meat is consumed in many parts of China, Korea and Vietnam, parts of Switzerland, as well as parts of the African continent, such as Cameroon, Ghana and Liberia.thing"

That is what they are brought up with  jo47 and eat? That does not make it humane to our way of thinking. But it might be the only survival option in these regions.

When was the last time you had to survived in these regions? (no offence but please wake up)

Fairygirljo47. Slugs did not taste great back 14 years ago.  But snail eggs are very expencive now.

How times change when you have money and do not care what tastes nice? 

Who ever said that these meats do not taste great.

Try a Goat Curry ( its fantastic ) but you will get wrong from the chefs cooking it as it is not  Goat Curry but a "curry goat." and that makes a difference when trying to communicate with other races.

There is a big difference in the culture with the way you ask them to cook your (correct)  Curry goat  and not goat curry! Silly to us but a very impotent mistake to make when you are in there land.

You must try it though. It's fantastic.

Of course not

Edd, I bet you wouldn't want her out of your life either.

What sort of person do you think I am star gaze lily?? I would never be able to leave her for good as I love my family.

I might have to go away, again while she thinks about the debt she has just put us in as we all need 12 bottles of bubble bath from Avon and some new plastic nails with matching tattoos from ebay. To match the same stuff she bought last year and still mas not used!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where do you live? I will buy your house on one condition that you return the top soil and do not tell anyone.

And did OH materialise this time Edd?

Nice sunny day, bit chilly. Have swept all the leaves on the kitchen terrace, mostly lime and oak, and finished planting up the pots.

She materialized many year before Busy-Lizzie. I knew the first time I saw her that I would never be able to get her out of my life. 

Apparently god loves a money grabbing stalker!!!!!

and i'm still trying to find where her money is!!!!!

E=mc2 not sure that Albert Einstein's put a time limit on the increased relativistic mass of a body that comes from the energy of motion of the body when in buy mode with a credit card!!!! He did not have plastic then!!!

That might be why he had the other idea and called it special relativity for the other half.

Unfortunately  he did not know his wife (mass) had increased relativistic (energy) when given a credit card as plastic had not been invented!

Plastic to me is the best and worst invention in the world. I would rather stick with cement as my number one invention. 

Actually OH are quite good but i'm not sure who invented them

They are special.

Surprised that nobody is reporting about their new bargains now that this new craze of Black Friday is happening over here. Does it not happen in the gardening world? 

It makes me really mad knowing they have been overcharge us for 364 days a year. 

Anyone know why Black Friday is called Black Friday as it is a American thing and is a bit hypocritical. One day they are thankful for everything they have then the next day you're fighting over tvs & stuff on sale. 

OH seems to be into it as I was forced into the shopping arcade today. Within mins and with huge crowds I had lost her.  

I stopped a very attractive woman and Asked  'Excuse me, can you help me? I cannot see my OH, and I know that she is here in the shopping centre somewhere. Can you just talk to me for a couple of minutes?"

 The attractive woman replies "Why?" 

"Because every time I talk to a beautiful woman, my OH materializes out of thin air." 

Not looking forward to Broke Saturday!

Edit: Oh. Someone has mentioned it! 

Thanks Panda.

I would but the fruit through a juicer/blender then pass it through a sieve or jam bag. 

Freezing then thawing the fruit first might helps to pulp it up further as well. 

Talkback: Five steps to winter compost

Posted: 27/11/2015 at 15:23

I find one of the best methods of keeping the worm heap warm over winter is to dig a hole/column down the middle of the heap and fill it with green grass cuttings or used coffee grounds. These produce lots of bacterial heat that keep the compost warm enough for the worms to survive.

The wigglers will slow down and hibernate over winter. They will even die if it gets too cold but they tend to reproduce and lay eggs just before this and the cocoons will survive extreme cold temps and then hatch, supplying a new batch of worms.

I'm also worried about Verdun. Has he been in touch since Ed was in Newquay?


Not 100% sure what you are suggesting Pottie Pam. I think I have heard him about since we got back.

PS. We did not burn him!
