The first time round I also caught this so called flu, felt sick for 3 days but still managed to go to work as well as spend several hours doing th...

Re: What do you grow that perhaps you shouldn't?

I have 2 spruce trees and a flowering cherry already established in my new garden that I haven't found a self-sufficient purpose for yet, except for partially blocking out the neighbours that is. And as for inside the house I have bromeliads, spider plants, calatheas, a golden dragon plant, a trades...

Re: prevent flour weevils?

Re: Films kids *have* to see

what about watership down??? Dear gods no, :pale: I watched that film all the time when I was little, on the one hand I loved it, on the other I had horrible nightmares about General Woundwort from it until I was about 14. I also remember watching Jurassic Park when I was 12, my mum refused to let ...

Re: 101 professions for a self-sufficientish, thinking perso

We have...

Re: Gift Ideas

Re: 39 steps to a better life

I think I can manage 9 of those...isn't Country Life that magazine that has a cover full of promise but once you open it up and look inside you find yourself staring at pages of useless twaddle and articles trying to flog you "must have" items for your home and garden that cost stupidly la...

Not so much a gift idea but I stumbled across this- http://gemdedude.deviantart.com/art/Dec ... -331655366 (credit to the guy/girl who's picture this is) and it struck me as a festive way to keep spiders away.
