Re: Acorns

August update, oops. I took photos in mid-August, but only got round now to adjusting them for size and putting them up here. When I was wandering about looking for a representative best of the bunch specimen, what struck me was the variety from the previous month. By August, it was plain that some ...

Sending Jan love, light, & strength. Positive vibes!
Jansman, sending you all this, you and your wife both. I hope everything goes really smoothly. And sleeping in her own bed because reconstruction is now a day op :shock: might well mean that she feels a lot more relaxed and able to sleep.

Re: Liverpool Prepper

Hello Eddie, welcome to the forum. I'm the same as Green Man, originally from Liverpool, living down south now. Still got family north and south of Liverpool, though none in the city itself any more.

Re: No cost or low cost preps

I'm slightly obsessed by shoring up the local ecology - wildflowers, bug hotels etc. As preppers, conserving the environment on behalf of the insects that pollinate our crops, and purify the soil/ water, is a good idea even on practical terms. Did anybody else see Jimmy's Big Bee Rescue on Channel 4...

Re: Hi, new member from East Anglia.

Welcome, Blue!

I was at Gorleston t'other day (travelled there to see rellies from the other side of London) I do love Norfolk :)

I'm also pretty fond of my tech - I saw your separate thread about that, so I'll have a think. Hope you find the forum useful.

Re: Shops selling off Covid surplus?

Re: Wide mouthed Stainless thermos..

Keep your eyes open in charity shops too - if they're letting people in, anyway. I got one for 50p, perfectly serviceable. I realise you probably want to get it sorted, but you could always have two at that price :)
