Hi Peter and a warm welcome. You've written a lovely introduction!

Are we allowed to know just how you make tomato ketchup? Or is it a trade secret? :lol: Perhaps you could post it in the recipe section?

Morning Camile, TA DAH....that's done it! What a wally I am. I wonder how that happened. It was on the smallest font. Even my eagle eyed husband gave up trying to surf the net because he couldn't read anything. The AOL homepage is still tiny, but maybe I need to shut down and reboot. All other pages...

I am sure if you trawl through some of the posts here, you'll get an idea of what can be done and I think you'll get some answers on this post too!

Yeah, it's a bit freaky. It whipped up a lot of stuff and destroyed a few roofs etc.

26. Make some pickles
27. Think about wrapping your charity shop and homemade xmas pressies. I am using old maps to wrap mine in this year!

28. Do something thoughtless like poke hundreds of cloves in a orange. (see pic on left) They smell lovely.

A good tip Paddys Mum, I may well do that with my bio stuff. I am nearly a SLS free bathroom, using biodegradable shampoos, natural soaps and shower/bath gel. It costs a little bit more but I tell the kids to use it wisely. Thinning it down sounds like a fantastic idea.

Thanks! :mrgreen:

Thanks for the info. I love mushrooms but I do have to be careful as they don't seem to like me. Even an overdose of normal old mushies make me ill. By overdose I mean...mushies and garlic on toast kind of thing! It's a real shame...as I really adore them. I just have to have a little taster. :coold...

Stats are interesting, I love looking through mine. I have a site that you can actually pinpoint the area/road where the person lives. :shock: If I can do it, just think what the big boys can find out!
