Re: Frog Pond

Finally got my pond put in and very cheaply too, ended up using an old bath with black plastic pond liner and sandstone edging, all of which were left on the site from the previous owner. Don't know why I didn't think of that before! lol. I've put slopes either end so that the frogs/toads can access...

Re: Thefts from allotments!

I've heard that there's things, or food I should say, been stolen from our allotments - vandalism and tool theft are fairly common, but food...? Nothing from mine yet because there's nothing there yet - only had it for a few weeks. I do think that food prices are going to get higher and higher, and ...

Frog Pond

Hi all, I'm putting a small pond in my allotment in the hope of attracting frogs because I've heard they're good at keeping pests at bay. The allotment is a good way from houses, so don't think I'll get waves of sleep-deprived residents descending on me like something from a Romero film... Anyone go...

We did this for about six months - washing wasn't really the problem, but it did use a lot of hot water - which could be a problem, and didn't really save any money/energy at all. We found that drying was more difficult, not too bad in the summer, but as winter set in... We picked up a mangle on eba...

I remember reading a Philip K Dick story where in a bleak future (of course) engineless cars were pulled by horses. Hmm, think I'd manage to look like Steptoe in mine! lol! It's a thought though...

What about the old humble pine cone... they're really decorative and just lying around on the floor? We always make something for each other to celebrate Yule, and my son made a lovely reindeer tree hanger from a pinecone (body), acorn (head), twigs (antlers), old string (legs) and acorn 'hats' for ...

Grim Reaper episode

I've tried to tell people about the episode with the grim reaper(s), which is my favourite of all, and they just look at me oddly! Didn't enjoy the second series as much as the first - think someone gave them a budget ala red dwarf! Good stuff though, love the Jagger impressions!!! Jason. Liverpool.

Firefox on the PC still uses the CTRL and + or - keys (or mouse scroll button) to change text size, as does Internet Explorer 6. With Internet Explorer 7, holding down the CTRL key and pressing + or - zooms in and out (or holding CTRL while moving scroll wheel on mouse), difference being that the gr...

Thanks for the warm welcome and now that I'm home from work I'll put the kaftan back on!

Red, we were at HESFES down your neck of the woods, two years ago. Missed the mudslide last year though!

Hello from Liverpool

Hi all - got to say that this site and forums look great so far. I had a browse around last night, came back on tonight and decided to join. My partner and I have four kids (aged between three and eleven) and are looking to turn over a third of our garden to fruit and veg this year, and extend next ...
