Re: Any math teachers here?

The news about me studying Maths and Stats spread around the community where I live, not least because I gave it as a reason to step down from my management post. Lo and behold: one of the managers here asked if I'd have time and be willing to tutor her 14/15yo daughter in Maths. For those UK (Scotl...

I did cycle into my local recycling centre and was told I couldn't use it on a bike. Given that I was already there I just stared at the guy until he relented.
Good one, made me laugh!

@Scott 2 that was a powerful synopsis of taking the matter of specialization to its logical conclusion.

Re: How many of you are low energy?

Have you looked at the food you eat? Recently I have been trying to think of food as a medicine, which essentially it is in that it keep everyone alive. But beyond that, it can also make one drowsy or more energetic etc. I am pretty sure it is a very idiosyncratic matter and any specific advise othe...

Thanks @mt, could you perhaps share the deodorant "recipe"? I have been using this for years now: Coconut oil (most part of the deodorant) soda bicarbonate (this makes it work) corn starch (for texture) essential oil (lavender e.g., cosmetics) Great, cheap and works post factum as well.

@WRC, I had skimmed through the articles, wonder what you ended up doing with the coral mushrooms? I would probably have tried a small amount to check for any side effects, and to see what it tastes like! -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------...

Oct 2021 Monthly update Holidays I had two weeks off in September. In the first week took two exams (still waiting for the results). In the second week went with DW for my mum's birthday in continental Europe. Saw extended family, managed to get a few things sorted, tried to permaculture many things...

Re: Foraging Log

Nope have not eaten them, would not be able to advise on this but yes generally erring on the side of caution is the way to go in this business.

I will definitely read stuff from the link you posted earlier to find out more about them.

Re: Foraging Log

This is absolutely brilliant! I will show it to DW, she will be super interested. Wooly chanterelles! This has to be a North American thing, never heard of them here in Europe. Those coral mushrooms look fantastic, I think I found once one 'club' and got excited thinking this was the one that feeds ...

Re: Foraging Log

Those goodies look amazing! Fingers crossed for finding Chanterelles, maybe also check local blogs about the start and end of their season at where you are. I just came back from holidays in central Europe where I had been told the season for Chanterelles was finished. I did find a couple when I wen...

Re: Foraging Log

@WRC, it often is a good idea to look at the canopy and go where certain trees are. Deciduous and coniferous trees work with different species of mushrooms (edibles on both sides, though more easy to identify ones one the deciduous side), however there is a general consensus that sycamore (and by ex...

Re: Foraging Log

@WRC, nice! My preferred way to preserve fruit is to dry it, turns all the more tasty and lasts a very long time. But one needs a way to dry them, ideally in the sun. I use a dehydrator, its 300-350W and it costs me about 1,5-2USD to dry five trays over some 20h. For chanterelles: you want to look f...

Re: The Island Where People Forget to Die

I take it back, looked up and there aren't any helpx or workaway opportunities, so would need to first go with camping gear and just query people if they need any help in exchange for staying with them. This would likely work I think. I wouldn't like to just go there, rent a room and be holidaying. ...
