Re: Project House

Tim, weed related: did you spray with only the vinegar or vinegar + a 'tim' concoction? :D Also, did it really work??? :D :D :D Tons of weeds here but a) i refuse to use chemicals, and b) i like a lot of the 'weeds' e.g dandelions in the garden are grand, but in the stone beds, not so much! clive

Re: NEW: Martin de Candre Shaving Soap in Wooden Bowl

Im supposed to have jars of the unscented mdc....the scent doesnt come close to roofing tar. :shock: i should send a slice to murray or gary for confirmation :D

my partner likes the scent too...more kisses when i use it, so either way - clean or tar'ish - its staying in the stable :lol:

Re: NEW: Martin de Candre Shaving Soap in Wooden Bowl
