Re: Dentures Imminent!

Hiya Spider8. I've been trough most of all this. Sadly I've never had the ''luxury'' option of soft relining. A pair of crude dentures was shoved up my mouth and I was told to '' get used to it''. This took a while...especially since small slivers of root and tooth-enamel where still working their w...

Re: How do i prevent Wasps and spiders from getting in my ho

A few years ago I bought a ''bug-buddy''. A fairly simple plastic contraption that one can use to catch all kinds of crawly little buggers and release them alive and well back into the wild where they belong. I, however,feed the big juicy ones to my tarantula's. No need to buy crickets in August and...

Re: Toffee Vodka anyone?

Yes,that sounds a lot more like something quite tasty,thanks! I've had some moderate succes with cinnamon & honey wodka. The honey I used was of the dark,clear forest variety. I added 2 sticks of cinnamon and some cardamon pods. I might have overdone it by using two sticks,they gave off more flavor ...

Re: Toffee Vodka anyone?

My beloved Mother-in-law (No really,I adore that loony old bat.) has made her own coffee-cordeal a few years ago. Mum had a basic grasp on the recipe, but just to make sure that the result would really taste like coffee she loaded an old bottle with smashed-up coffee beans and vodka. Then,after a mo...

A search for ''ayelense'' and ''viresa'' glassware came up with a link to this site. I have an interest in making my own fruit-wines,and this site seems to hold all that precio...

Re: Poppy Seeds

You'll have to check them daily to see if the small ''seed-release-ports'' start to open,located just under the crown of the seedpod. This usually happens when the pod starts to dry out,so you can check by lightly scratching the surface of the pod. If no white juice comes out,they're probably dry en...
