Fleabay............not on yer nelly! :roll: There are one or two decent turbines offered, but there are also some WELL dodgy ones (particularly from a company based in Newark)....... :wink: I know too many people who have been ripped off - you seldom get any "after sales" from Fleabay sellers - don'...

For the state to insist on vaccination is a totalitarian move - that is precisely what generations fought world wars to avoid - and you object to my emoting? (a little!) :roll: As I said way back near the beginning of this thread, I'm not prepared to get into a long- drawn out argument over whether ...

I feel you are missing the point - it may well be the best in it's field, but it is by it's very definition by, of and for the "vaccine trade".........it's rather like asking a Chief Constable for a verdict on policing......... :roll: Having spent over 40 years having a deep interest in "the other s...

I think the short answer is probably "yes, during the summer", but would question whether it would be worthwhile probably using most of your system's storage capacity to do it! You'd probably also have problems arising because once the freezer contents have risen above a certain temperature you shou...

for a moment I was getting troubling visuals......... chest freezer - hmmm, chapel hat pegs............ :mrgreen: But then I get similar problems with "remanded in custardy" (visions of criminals bobbing around in a vast vat of custard), and "gorilla warfare" - lots of hairy hominids lobbing grenade...

vaccination usually = dead disease cells - neat, or with some nice toxic mercuric preservative to help it along homoeopathic dilution - 6x= one cc diluted in 100 ml, then one cc of that diluted in 100ml, and so on, 6 times..........(and that's a low potency (dilution), often they can be many million...

Farmers are hard-headed pragmatists who care greatly about the "bottom line" (is it cost effective?) - many very conventional farmers now rely on homoepathy as being safe, effective and cheap (and would reach for their 12 bore if you suggested they were airy fairy 'ippies) :mrgreen:

I did say I won't get into an argument over it (been there, got the t-shirt!) - I did give a very simplified version of why "conventional test methods" tend not to work on non allopathic medicines (allopathy assumes we're "all the same")..........in the meantime, also contemplate the BILLIONS of dol...

I won't get into an argument about it, but I have used homoeopathy personally, on family members, and most importantly farm animals (can't tell me that's psychosomatic!), and have found it both safe and effective. A good friend who is a fully-qualified conventional vet who "converted" to homoeopathy...
