Great cheese scones

We've been very busy all morning removing an old shower. Come lunchtime we realised we'd not made any bread! Quick Google and I found a recipe for quick cheese scones. I doctored the recipe a bit and it's amazing - the thing I always dislike about cheese scones is that they're not cheesy enough. No ...

Re: Ethical products - do they make jobs harder?

I use soap flakes, bicarb, citric acid, washing soda, liquid castile soap, essential oils and vinegar - that pretty much covers all my personal and household washing and cleaning requirements. I've not noticed my life being any more difficult or harder work than when I bought in products, except, of...

Re: Olive oil polish

I use a blend of olive oil, linseed oil and beeswax, with a little lavender EO in for smell. Just like the old-fashioned polish my aunt used to use with out the chemicals so highly prized in the 50s and 60s.

Re: HFWs back!

I went right off him during his chicken campaign, and I know what you mean about re-sizing. I can't help it though, still have a little soft spot even though I neither want, or need his lifestyle any more.

Re: pumpkins and frost

I don't think snow will bother them but if you've got a bit of straw or something to put round them it will help protect them from the frost.
I think the main problem is the sudden drop in temp, not a slow steady fall, or even going to a really low temp.

Re: New to the radio

Radio 4.
I like Radio 2 in the car, if I fancy a singsong (I'm usually by myself).

There are also some great programmes on Radio Scotland - but that might not help you!
