There is one caution with regard to purslane in that it is a high oxalate food and would not be recommended for some people (e.g. vit b6 deficiency and some types of bowel disease). Here is an interesting link regarding fibromyalgia and the oxalate connection. Excess oxalate may lead to kidney stone...

Have to agree with RIC. In fact I know of a similar case in the UK where the owner returned to find the locks changed and a large Romanian family squating. In that particular incident I recall reading that the squatters had produced a bogus Rental Agreement to show the neighbours. They were not in ...

The whole system of insisting on lifeguards in a private pool is just ridiculous. Most people who rent an apartment or house do not want a complete stranger sitting by their private pool for hours. I suspect the rule is only a way of Greece avoiding any litigation by relatives of the unfortunate fe...

"...3-4 euros for half a kilo of village wine which costs them virtually nothing and for many peoples tastes not very good at that." What makes you think producing village wine costs virtually nothing? Have you any idea of the process and by that I mean the costs of land to grow the vines,...

Just a thought but have you looked into mineral deficiencies regarding Lola? Zinc can be used to reduce cortisol in humans and I believe low zinc and/or sulphur can be implicated in laminitis. (Of course she may have an an adrenal or pituitary tumor if she really does have Cushings). I beg your par...

Re: Nothing grows in our garden

...I also believe that the reduction in our planet's magnetic forces are having a negative impact for plants/crops all around the world (not to mention Monsanto et al). Is there any hard evidence that a reduction of 6 % in the earth's magnetic moment over a century has a direct impact of plant grow...

Re: Nothing grows in our garden

Our garden is 300m above sea level and consists mostly of limestone rock with a thin layer of brown dust. We've added (rinsed) seaweed and humous and blue fertiliser chips and gallons of water. But there are no worms and everything we plant just wilts. Worms don't care too much for the blue fertili...

The article is a bit confusing. I suspect the author didn't really understand the situation. It is the "SPECIAL" property tax that was collected on the electricity bill. This property tax didn't exist in 2009. The normal property tax used to be issued on a form headed E.T.AK. I received t...

Re: Property tax

I have just picked up our latest electricity bill complete with property tax. From various written and verbal reports I had thought that this dubious practice was over and done with; apparently not. Which month did you get the first instalment for last year's tax (collected from about October onwar...
