Re: Self Isolation

Of course, here the BIG problem is that we do not have the medical equipment and the beds and the morgues to deal with the numbers of victims we have... I suspect that there will be other countries with the same problem. True. And of course, our dear country has refused to join an EU scheme to get ...

Wonder what is happening to the thousands of Grey Nomads with no fixed address wandering the country towing their oversized caravans?
That's a problem, as are the many homeless.

Re: Empty supermarket recipes

I've got the feeling that aquafaba would do well as egg substitute in pancakes... I hope I'll be ok for eggs, though, as we have local producers and I actually bought some at Aldi yesterday! They were well stocked in just about everything, even organic eggs and veg, full range of dairy products, no ...

Re: Self Isolation

Just shows that those in charge of us don't really know what goes on... Similar situation here. And they just can't understand that somebody who doesn't get a pay check one month really doesn't have the option of getting a larger overdraft, or buy on credit - the rich just borrow another million, no...

Re: Self Isolation

I find it really quite upsetting. I notice it in my health - because of my thyroid condition (overactive) I have high blood pressure and palpitations, which have got worse in the last few days of uncertainty. Last night I woke up, read the news and promptly couldn't get back to sleep - consequently ...

Re: Self Isolation

I'm getting a bit annoyed at this... So last night at half past nine our boss sent an email round to all staff that we were only allowed in today until 12, to pick up things we might need or tidy etc, and then only essential staff would be allowed to stay on (there's some projects ongoing that can't...

Y However, my personal, private, no you can't visit beach is still open - all it lacks is salt, surf, lifesavers and sharks.
Can't see anything wrong with that! :mrgreen:

Re: Our time has come?

I was back at work today, and on the way home I thought this is almost a situation as it was after the war, and then for decades in the GDR. You always had a bag with you when you were out; if you passed a shop, you went in just in case they'd got something in, and if you saw a queue you joined it, ...

At least some of that is edible... We might yet be grateful for anything to eat!

As far as I know, Bernard, the cooking liquor from any bean will do. The usual one is chickpea liquor but I've used gungo pea and black turtle beans and they work well, albeit a strange colour.

Re: Emptying the supermarket shelves

Fruit and veg still plenty here - bread only seeded sour dough! But I rarely eat bread anyway, unless it's 100% rye, and I couldn't get to Dundee farmers' market today, where they sell that wonderful stuff... We have a small community shop, linked to Grampian FairShare (I think that's what they are ...

Re: Allotment the 2nd

Does the black bag in the sun trick work, like it does for other perennial weeds? Could try that - but I suppose the council will get onto me then because of all that rubbish in the garden! :mrgreen: Somehow I just hate to put anything green into landfill...Which is stupid, because it would kind of...

Re: Empty supermarket recipes

And don't forget to retain the bean cooking liquor (aquafaba) for other purposes. It makes a fantastic egg white substitute for vegan recipes etc. Just wondering whether the somewhat gloopy liquid out of tins of beans would do that, too? Might come in handy if we can't get eggs... Actually, the cur...

Re: Emptying the supermarket shelves

I've just been shopping for the first time in a week. Even our small local Coop has a lot of empty shelves... No decent oat cakes, no decaf coffee or tea, no tins of tomatoes... But - the first local strawberries! So far they seem to have enough staff to pick them; no doubt that will change when the...

Re: Allotment the 2nd

That may well be, but burning is not possible here. Drowning, maybe? Or, I suppose, there's those little garden incinerators... Might have to look into that.
