Kefir and kombucha - drink and cultures Amazing probiotic fermented drinks, very healthy, and totally delicious.

I have the cultures for both of these, and can very much recommend the fun of creating them at home – easy, and I will give you tips. I also have Kombucha, mostly grown in green tea, and another fabulously tasty drink that would grace any dinner table. A brilliant pick me up at teatime, I find.

Advice about a new kitten A new kitten can be wonderful and also exhausting. While they are young there are many things which they can be introduced to which will be helpful as they mature for instance getting them used to having a bath for the future moment when they accidentally squeeze under a newly painted fence or teaching them how to take pills before they need to. There are other things they may need to do when they are older which will not be so much of a shock if you teach them while they are young. These include letting you trim their claws so they are not so sharp, letting you regularly examine their ears, eyes and mouths as a general health check and teaching them to willingly get into their travel baskets or bags.

French conversation classes I'm writing to you because you (may have) expressed an interest in brushing the rust off your A level French from the last century (!) and returning it to active use. I'm running informal but themed and structured French classes chez moi at 89 Roseford Road,CB42HB from Tuesday October 15 morning from 10-11:30. Coffee will be served. The tuition fee is £12 (or 12 cams for Camlets members). A qualified and very experienced language teacher, my classes aim to practise essential French structures orally so that they become automatic; improve your pronunciation; provide fail-safe coping strategies, and improve your listening skills. Confidence-building, self- expression and fun will be the order of the day in a safe setting. Motivation is the prime factor in successful language learning. Not memory. Not graft. Not aptitude.... So on completion of the course (by May) you can look forward to the reward of an optional 6-day residential course at our house in south west France where you can immerse yourself in French life, holding your own fluently and confidently in a range of authentic settings: preparing a meal; a meeting with a local Maire; a Q & A with a local Office de Tourisme; a country walk n' talk; une viste à la ferme; a guided tour of Clairevivre (look it up); making an enquiry on the telephone; a meal in a restaurant, etc. If this piques your interest get back to me. Feel free to tell anyone with rusty knowledge of French you think would benefit from these classes. Class size ware limited to 6 or 7 so dépêchez-vous! à très bientôt, David (12 cams cams)
