  1. Thanks for the birthday wishes, gals~! I know I've been remiss in coming to the board. A bit of an update: My daughter, Eden, is happily married (10 years now) with a daughter, Saffron Rose (age 6 1/2). She took time off from modeling and acting, but now that Saffy is in school, she is going back to her career - in smaller doses, so she can still do all the "mom" things. In the past, she was a top international model and has had several parts in various movies and TV shows. Her British hubby is a super successful master chef, who has a couple restaurants in the L.A. area and has done some
  2. I was just researching/googling my old 1952 grind o mat and came across this thread. LOL Mine appears much older than this one and doesn't look the same at all. **sigh** I came across all my grinders and mills when doing a thorough "decrapification" of my basement. I'm afraid some of them have gotten moisture/rust damage, so I'm trying to figure out the best way to clean them. Any suggestions? Would coca cola work? I've read how it can remove rust on other things.
  3. Soapwort (Saponaria officinalis) is a vespertine flower, and a common perennial plant from the carnation family (Caryophyllaceae). Other common names are Bouncing Bet and Sweet William. The Latin name is derived from the toxic substance saponin, contained in the roots. It starts producing lather when in contact with water. The epithet officinalis indicates its medicinal functions. However, it acquired its common name through utility in cleaning. In traditional medicine, the roots are used to treat certain skin diseases. The leaves are rich in natural surfactants, which form a natural l
  4. Suds don't make your clothes clean -- that's just a marketing gimmick by the big companies. I don't recommend the use of Fels Naptha - it's loaded with perfume. Better to use homemade soap that is superfatted, along with the washing soda and borax. I find this to be much cheaper than any detergent available on the market. I believe the "fruit" in the muslin bag was a reference to soap nuts. They are awesome and do an incredible job cleaning -- and they're not just for laundry. You can use them for any cleaning, including your body and hair. They're only about $10 a lb and will las
  5. Nice to see you foxfire! Glad you're getting back on your feet.
  6. i remember when you had your own board on ezboard.no?

  7. I made it last week for my dad and it really came out just like the photo. I was amazed at how wonderful it was -- even for a non-chocolate lover like me. I'm going to experiment and hopefully come up with a strawberry or blueberry version. Not sure what to use to sub out the instant coffee or espresso powder for a berry version. I found a fabulous place that offers organic fruit powder: http://www.znaturalfoods.com/Fruit-Powders See the attached image for the ice cream recipe. Enjoy!! Sorry, gals. I realized I cut out the actual "how to" instructions. Here they are: Melt cho
  8. http://www.aromaweb.com/ You'll find lot of good info at Aroma Web. The blending page gives instructions on top, middle and base notes. Be careful when purchasing and make sure your choice offers pure EOs.
  9. betty, I'm not clear on what you mean by "lightened" -- is it becoming dingy or yellow? Not sure if this will help, but it may be worth a try. I found this online. Gray to Light Blonde Catnip Rinse- Gives a light blonde color to gray or white hair. 1 level tsp organic cut and sifted catnip 250 mL ( ~ little more than 1 C) water Put catnip into a heat resistant large mug and add boiling water. Cover and steep for 30 mins. Deactivate it by straining it into a second large mug and always tap the condensation from the cover - I use a saucer, into the cup or mug - it contains the volati

  11. Yes, that's the one! Anyway, glad you made it back here.
  12. How funny, Marjorie! I'm drawing a blank on your previous username or the forum, but I could take a wild guess.
