  1. That's really quite some list you have there! I am contemplating bottling fruit for the first time. (I know . . .) Could you possibly do a post to talk me through it please?

  2. Hi BB,

    Will gladly do this for you - have started a post in any event. Please bear with me I am out this evening to the Psychic & Spiratual Fellowship, a group run by my friend Jacqueline Lesley - its a group for like minded people or for people to learn more about esoteric subjects and I am on the Committee. It helps to raise funds for local good causes, the ones that usually slip through the net and people who attend learn something too so its a win win situation. Bear with me will get it sorted out so that you can have a play.

    Take care
