    Tragic Bel 🙁

    Penny, I wonder if they grow to different sizes in different places??? By big, I mean bigger than feral bees.

    I haven’t read all the posts, so excuse me if this has been discussed 🙂

    On Marks Daily Apple, they say women shouldn’t fast more than 14 hours at once, so my preference is to fast most days, for between 12 and 14 or so hours.

    The primal ‘way to exercise’ is – move slowly most of the time (ie don’t sit 😉 ), play (whatever it is that relaxes you). sprint as fast and hard as you can twice or three times a week (yeah, pass, my pelvic floor simply can’t cope), lift heavy things. This follows our original ancestors. Nomadding around the country after food and shelter, learning skills through play (plus just relaxing, no body can cope with lots of stress), running from predators or after food, and lifting either supplies for housing or the kill to get it back to the shelter. This converts to anaerobic exercise such as planks and chin ups (which work remarkably quickly and effectively). Squats are also brilliant (and have helped my pelvic floor far more than kedgels have)

    I have floorboards but also need the vacuum. The boards are uneven, with big gaps inbetween. Add 2 dogs and 2 cats and just sweeping won’t cut it 🙂

    blue banded bees are quite big, buzz and are quite obvious in appearance 🙂 we have them visit our durants and desert cassia each day. i love to hear them. they’re australian native bees too, i found out the other day!

    bel, what about australian native bees instead of the feral ones? that way, no stinging, no smoking etc 🙂 plus, you support our natural wildlife 🙂 you can get ones that live in boxes or in other types of housing.

    there’s a facebook page of a local person (so maybe there’s one or more local to you too?)

    If my fingertips aren’t damp enough, I dip them in water, into the bicarb and use that.

    Agree,after. The things will be stressed enough trying to cope with the heat, rather than forming new growth. Plus, the extra foliage can’t hurt with keeping the soil cooler ( can’t imagine it’ll be much help, but every bit will count).

    My plants need a prune but it won’t happen till March, cos the chooks need the shade till then.

    the only thing I’ve found that works well is bicarb soda. Just dampen under the arms and pat some on. I seldom have to reapply 🙂

    Well, I’m not going to find the scientific answer. I’ll use the common sense one? It’s a food designed to help an animal grow very quickly with minimal brain development. Kinda the opposite to humans really – we take about 18 years to grow to full size and our brain develops quickly in the first 2 years and hopefully continues to develop after that.

    Our original ancestors wouldn’t have consumed milk often, so we didn’t really evolve to consume lots of it. (They would have hunted a lactating mammal and consumed the milk left in her mammary glands but that wouldn’t have happened every day).

    Lots of things are natural, Lady B, but that doesn’t necessarily make them healthy 🙂 And yes, the amount consumed does come into it. (However, as I said, we drink raw milk cos it’s so yummy. Our diet is quite close to being ‘clean’ so I’m not terribly concerned. Except for the amount my husband consumes and his growing girth as a result 🙁 )

    If you look from an evolutionary perspective, probably not. We’re not calves and cows’ milk is designed for calves. Having said that, we drink raw milk cos it tastes so good.

    Edit: if you mean supermarket milk, no, not at all. It’s been treated and that kills any goodies in it. The cheap stuff is worse.

    Ouch, but she’s still alive. (You may have heard on the news of the poor bloke who got struck by lightning. So very sad for his son, 11 yrs old and they were a single parent family)

    That’s quite amazing!

    I’m trying to encourage my 14 yr old to start sewing with the purpose of making a bit of pocket money. I can sew but not neatly enough, but she can sew a straight line very well! Hoping to convince her to keep learning as it may put her through uni or whatever.

    I made this one yesterday. It was ok, did need the herbs and oil though I think. I ended up needing heaps more coconut flour than it says (probably double). If you’ve never used coconut flour, it is very very thirsty so a little goes a very long way. With the amount in the recipe, it was a batter. I thought it needed to be a dough, hence adding more. (I ended up using maple syrup with it, cos it was a sweet bread for me. I don’t eat very much sugar or sweeteners so sweet for me is often bitter or tart for others).

    Had I used the herbs and oil, and maybe some rock crystals over the top, I reckon it would have been delicious.
