Ah but how do you tell people want they want as opposed to what they need? You could wreck the global economy going down that route :lol:

The new banish plastic movements

Now that the government has jumped on the idea that we should banish plastic, it's surely the latest "in" thing. We won't mention that the latest plastic using wheeze is plastic £5 and £10 notes. We've been saying banish plastic here for years though haven't we? An interesting but old idea...

Re: Cycling to Europe

My family did a cycling tour to Switzerland years back and went by ferry if I remember rightly. One to explore.

Re: The not buying new compact?

Reading back, some of the folks involved back in 2006 found it hard going. Can't understand why. Perhaps they'd never had to think that second hand might be good. Perhaps they weren't even the people who offered what they had of decent standard to any of the second hand sites. Nowadays with the adve...

Re: Garden diaries

I did long ago on the allotments for the first couple of years run a diary. After that I seem to have managed quite well but then I've slightly longer than 12 years in the growing business and have a lot of pictures that show me what I've done over the last 10 years. Find these useful.

There are some funny comments over on one of the chat forums on the site though. People didn't think it was generally a going idea.

Re: Storm Dylan?

It hasn't been windy here in recently in the day though I did suffer from flying greenhouse plastic panes one night last month. The main problems with wind here is when the buses from this northern county can't get over the river bridges to go into Newcastle-on-Tyne. Causes problems as the bus depot...

Re: Being self sufficient in 2017

I've just had another look at Wombat's list and would you believe he has crossed off some items since he posted it at the end of October. His last update is 18th December so something must be happening.

Re: Unwanted presents?!

Oh Ina, not the best eh? Trouble is that there's this thing about older people not being able to shop for themselves especially if they are on a low income so you need to ensure they have food and something a bit better at Christmas. That sort of trickles down to singles living on their own especial...

Re: Cleaning products

Some observations I would make on pound shops in general: 1. They sell what often turn out to be smaller sizes compared with supermarkets which is one to watch 2. They often sell lines which have not done well elsewhere 3. People who like Daz love the Power Daz - if it's cheap enough in the pound sh...
