Kefir and kombucha - drink and cultures Amazing probiotic fermented drinks, very healthy, and totally delicious.
Water Kefir Is a bit like other flower champagne, although I can make it with any fruit you choose.
Milk Kefir Is a yoghurt-like drink, but apparently contains more probiotics. I can make it with milk or nut milk. I often use raw milk from a dairy in Suffolk, adding even more nutrients and live enzymes.
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.
Very good for the digestive tract, look them up on the web to discover the health benefits. (10+ Cams cams)

Yoghurt kefir Kefir is a probiotic culture, rather like yoghurt, and makes a wonderful drink – usually a bit runnier than yoghurt, but apparently even more full of probiotic wonders. I find it delicious, and its much easier to produce than yoghurt. It doesn't need any special conditions. You can also make it with nut and soya milk. I can supply the culture, or give you the drink itself. (5+ cams)

Free kids deck chair (needs repair) I have a kids deck chair in need of repair, that is free/0 cams to anyone interested who can collect it.
The metal frame seems sound from what I can tell and I think the plastic armrests are sturdy too but the woven plastic fabric that makes up the seat on it is degrading, which isn't too surprising as it's about 30 years old now but I think it should have some life left in it with a bit of repair.
The current fabric is screwed in place on the back, looks possible to unscrew and unweave to use those as template for new fabric. Some of those screws are also rusty so would need replacing.
I'm not sure what age range it is for exactly, I think I made use of it when I was about 5 or 6 myself. Dimensions are roughly 11 inches high for seat level, seat bottom section 11 inches deep by 12 inches wide, back rest section 12 inches wide by about 13.5 inches high.

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)
