LOVE the cat litter pellets idea though neighbours fence was my idea too. :lol: [/quote] It's ALWAYS worth...

Re: Insect bites

Here's some bad news: Consuming alcohol may make your blood tastier to mosquitoes, according to a 2011 French study. Researchers discovered that the alcoholic equivalent of three cans of beer can lead to 30 percent more bug bites, at least for men in a controlled laboratory setting. :cry: OM Can co...

I love this book series, last winter I read all 20 back-to-back over about 6 weeks. I must watch the film again.

On the back of the freezing cheddar question,..... I still have a couple of wheels which have been in the fridge and keep looking at it wondering if it is still ok to use?
