Re: Spare gold

I've got a very small amount of cheap gold that I have been musing over.... think I will take it to a local jewellers, rather than send it off to a faceless company!!

Re: pumpkin - jack-o-lantern pictures

Yup - very light areas are holes, the other bits have the skin removed, and a little bit scraped away on both sides... We used small kitchen knives for the large sections/big cuts and small craft-type knife for the detail and scraping away. The stencil was taped to the pumpkin, and I used a pin to '...

Re: BNP on Question Time

How far does one actually have to go back to find out if you are really 'British'?? A lady who I work with has managed to trace her ancestry all the way back to a Viking invasion, centuries ago - so, is she british then? My mum has traced our family back to France and Italy in the 17th Century, alth...

Re: Dog Biscuit Recipes Needed, Please

I've got a few recipes for treat-type biscuits.... will hunt them out tonight for you.... I keep the Boxers protein levels at 18%, but generally don't include their treats in that, as they are small compared to the rest of their food. Have you thought about feeding raw? You need the right mix of mus...

Re: Central heating - when do you turn it on?

We would normally only turn it on mid-October, and then for about 3 hours a day... However, despite my best efforts, I put it on for an hour last night, as even in 4 layers of clothes and a quilt, I was freezing and my lips and fingers were blue.... We have a modern-ish house, but it's only single-g...

Re: Abbey are complete &*$!!

Never put all your eggs in one basket! We have accounts in different banks in several different countries and if one lot got closed for some reason, we could use another.
