Re: swine flu

Very good advice MKG. :D However, I'd like to clarify something. I don't know what you think about the Y2K 'non-event' as some term it, but I was one of those millions of IT folks who worked their arses off, and with BILLIONS of dollars worldwide spent on it was WHY Y2K didn't happen. It didn't happ...

Re: swine flu

Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. Anyone not LIVING by this philosophy, and who expect the government, any government to 'fix it' and magically save them, is already extinct. We can all learn a thing or two from the Amish. Guess who didn't have issues during Hurricane Katrina, and who weren'...

Re: swine flu

Exactly. And even if it was what killed her, it doesn't mean it's a 'Pandemic'. Point of technicality: A "pandemic" is not defined by the death toll, its defined by the rate at which a new disease spreads. A virus could be completely non-lethal, and if it spread fast enough it could still be called...

Re: Rabbit ideas

( I apologize to the veggies among us... Never apologize for eating the diet nature intended you to. We have sharp teeth for a reason. We are naturally hunters and omnivores. We respect the rights of 'veggies' to eat what they so desire, and they should in return do the same. It all boils down to w...

Re: swine flu

The headlines today tell of the first person in Britain killed by swine flu. The second line tells us that the person was already in hospital being treated for underlying conditions. Scaremongering or what! Indeed... The BBC seem to be choosing their word carefully The first person in Europe to die...

Re: What wild foods are about in your neck of the woods

Let's see... In the area we have: Dandelions (kinda bitter this time of year since the flowers have come and gone...) Roots are able to be harvested any time of the year, and Plantains (Not the best tasting, but very medicinal and has many many uses. Try a few young leaves in a salad for a different...

Re: swine flu

Dangerous? Mmm hmm. I’ve heard that the truth is indeed dangerous. I’ve also heard that it is unacceptable to be ‘right’ too soon. ;) Historically it was ‘Indian policy’ to give/trade the natives blankets infected with smallpox and other plagues that had very little effect upon the Europeans (they h...

Re: What wild foods are about in your neck of the woods

oooh like the idea of using dandelion for coffee, do you just steep it once it's been roasted & ground? I have far too many dandelions (or lion flowers as my 3 year old likes to call them) I'd love to put them to good use. I'd have loved to find some burdock to go with them but I've not been able t...

Re:

2steps - The allotment next to me was covered in dandelions, I am not one of the people who call them a food. The leaves are too bitter for my liking. Although I do use the heads as a cough medicine. You get the young leaves in spring BEFORE the plant flowers. If they are bitter to you, boil for 10...

Re: Wild Garlic

I could smell some when I was in the lake district las week, but could not find it. We did find some wild garlic-mustard though(jack of the hedge?) and wild black mustard. I cooked with a bit of wild thyme, (tastes lovely, particularly the flowers.) and sorrel because we found places with plenty of...
