Re: Is this a good thing?

I know I'm new here and don't know the full extent of what flame wars have gone on but my two pence would be to keep this section of the forum. When it comes to news people will always disagree about what is good and what is bad and this way it is contained in one section where people can rant and g...

Re: Hello

Thank you :icon_smile: Sadly not, we still live at the same address but my parents had to give up the farm years ago because they were losing more money than they were making and had 4 children to feed.

Re: DEAD SLUGS

Apparently centipedes like eating slugs, though I have no idea how you'd go about encouraging them into your garden beyond having some logs for them to live in. Other slug eaters I've heard of are ground beetles, black birds, slow worms, newts, frogs, toads and of course hedgehogs. I'd suggest you d...

Re: Christmas Cards

A cross between 1 and 2. Everyone gets sent an email xmas card because it is cheap and easy but close friends and immediate family members and those without access to the internet also get a real card. Usually the cards themselves are shop brought but my gift tags are always recycled and whenever po...

Re: Hello

Thanks. :icon_smile: Hmm, I may not be the best person to ask what Jersey is like, lol, I'm a little jaded! As a child it was great, I grew up on a dairy farm which was awesome. But nowadays all the politicians care about is the finance industry, putting Jersey on the map with the rest of the world ...

Re: Red spider mite in house ?

Do you have a steam cleaner you could do a once over with? Vacuuming is how I deal with mites and fleas but I've been told told that a steam cleaner is more effective because it kills any that escape the vacuum. There are also some powders available that kill chicken mites, though I don't know if th...

Hello

Hello everyone, Just joined the forums (obviously) and hope to be free of the rat race one day, hopefully before I go completely mad. I'm currently stuck on Jersey, aka the Rock, supposedly for a year or so but life likes to throw it's little surprises at me so who knows how long I'll be here. Work ...
