Re: Pets Food

Having been stocking up on my cat's medicines and his special kidney food for a few months now. His is Hill's Prescription food which is an American company. Probably won't have quite the same problems as a German company, but I'm guessing pet food and pet pills will be at the bottom of the urgent l...

Re: Green tomatoes

My parents always made chutney with them. In fact, I used to think that chutney was only made of green tomatoes as I didn't know any other sort! With age has come delicious understanding :D

I'm not sure how they can make, ship to the UK and then post me a small set of sugar tongs for 15p. They can though. :o They'll do me as a set of tongs for camping though.
Sugar tongs? That's some serious glamping you do there Deeps! Respect!

Re: Root cellars

To help gauge costs of a proper cellar being added to a house after it has already been built here is the info about a colleague who had his cellar dug out a couple of years ago. He has an end of terrace house circa 1870s. Like me he already had a good 4 foot gap between his floorboards and the eart...

Re: Something hard to prep for but should have been avoidable :-/

Re: home fire safety advice....

I particularly like the suggestion of testing your alarms when the clocks change. I can never remember when I last tested my alarms and that leads to a frantic spate of button pressing and the cat scarpering out of the house!

Re: What a day!

Well done jansman! Proper prepper in action! Equipped with the right gear and the right know-how. And a timely reminder for the rest of us - I have just got a second vehicle and am stocking it with the required equipment like hazard triangle, high-viz vest and completely forgot about the first aid k...
