The dreaded moss

Posted: 01/12/2016 at 20:36

If it is in shade, it will get moss. My lawn is moss for most of the winter due to shade. I lose it in summer. I scarify in May if I remember.

I'd get a qualified sparky in, better safe than sorry.

If the frost has not got them, you may as well enjoy the flowers. I cut back in Spring where necessary.

I started down the route of avoiding additives when I found that Smokey Bacon crisps make my joints swell. I can eat plain salted. I avoid buffets where everything is dipped in bright orange breadcrumbs.

The other problem with soya is that most of it is GM modified so they  can use glyphosate before harvesting to clear the weeds.  There is some residual in the soya beans, and it is suspected to be a hormone disrupter, which could lead to cancer in susceptible people. Soya is in lots of things, even bread, where it is said to be an "improver".

OMG Clari. You need a labrador to throw on the bed and keep Reggie company, (and the bed warm)  I got up early, the house cold, I put the heating on and I am sat in front of a gas fire with a cup of coffee.

When will your heating be sorted? I had my boiler changed in the summer. It was a days job, and is now due its three month check up/ adjustments if necessary. We also changed the kitchen radiators, the extension is a cold little box and needed something bigger.

Will you be on Grand Designs or is it more  the £100k challenge?

I would add organic Dairy to the above list. I eat butter  rather than hydrogenated  palm oil full of trans fats, masquerading as margarine.  Also oat cereals, but keep low on the deep fried mars bars. Although a little of what you fancy does you good.  A big Mac once a month isn't going to harm you. Three times a week it will.

I consider healthy eating is to eat a wide variety of food that generally has been cooked from basic ingredients.  If you look at the ingredients list of some of the processed foods, you need a science degree to even half way understand them. They are there to extend  the shelf life, or add flavour to something that would just be flavourless mush without it.
