Re: Food

jansman's rabbit clearance post takes me back! I went stargazing in deepest Oxfordshire in the 1970s, and when we pulled in offroad, and our headlights swept a field, it was like the stars were on the ground - all those rabbits looking at the strange light :mrgreen: I was a city girl, never seen any...

Re: Food

As a start, Jose, maybe checking what's growing there now, in relation to what rabbits need? Do they need a stream or anything like that? If you don't have a stream, could you instal a wild pond? That would help ecological resiliency in any case https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/actions/how-build-pond ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Still working on decluttering - when the shopping's all packed away, I'm wondering about burning/ shredding all my client notes, and getting rid of the specialist books. It's well over 4 years since I retired, and nobody's going to sue me now (I know thats famous last words, but it *is* 4 years, I'...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

I've got a nice big supermarket order coming today - 10% less in price than it should be. No litres of handwash, no Scottish oats (wtf??? No oats?) Still working on decluttering - when the shopping's all packed away, I'm wondering about burning/ shredding all my client notes, and getting rid of the ...

Re: What have we become?

Another case in point. My sister in Manchester continued to have grandkids to visit and occasionally stay... Almost forgivable, though I always feared the grandkids might bring covid home. But then I discovered that while she had them, my niece had had a big drunken house party of over 20 guests. T...

Re: What have we become?

We are social creatures. Mixing family tribe, to tribe, will now be ‘illegal’. So sad, so bonkers. But we can still go to the pub. ??? And that's why there's not the compliance that there was, because people can see that not only is it not "one rule for me, another for thee" but the rules themselve...

Not if you have arthritis in your fingers and/or hands, Lemne. It doesn't work that way.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

I bought a medium-sized Le Creuset pan a year ago, to put in my "hay" box - its way too heavy to use every day, arthritis being what it is, but it would work if there was a problem. I bought it at an old hippie's garden shop, it cost £15 :)
