Re: Live off the Land Challenge

Sounds like a nice dream, but I don't know any vegans with hens, sheep and bees! Would you plan on giving up your raw vegan lifestyle to pursue your dream?

Re: Bloated chicken!!

Hi tessybear, One of our girls was exactly the way you describe. She was bloated and walking like john wayne yet still eating well. Later on though, she started to produce unusual poops and her comb and wattles started to go pale. We believe she had sterile peritonitis, which basically means she's p...

Re: Caffeine withdrawal symptoms

I also have terrible headaches when I cut out caffeine. I need to decrease my intake so I'm going to start drinking more naturally caffeine free rooibos, I drink it in the evenings anyway as caffeine after 6pm keeps me awake all night!

One day she was digging about in a bit of earth behind their house when she found a small statue about 6 or 7 inches tall. It was made of bronze by the looks and ha...

Re: Any home edders out there?

Thanks for sticking up for me Rosendula :) Old Jerry - Of course not all teachers are like that and we are certainly not making decisions for our son's education based solely on my OH's experiences with teachers and headteachers in work. My own sister was a teacher and a good one at that! My comment...

Re: Any home edders out there?

We planned home ed-ing our son before he was even born!! Both me & the OH had rubbish school experiences and we have learned so much MORE since leaving school. OH works on an IT helpdesk and gets calls daily from teachers and headteachers, he is disgusted by their attitude and shocked at their incom...
