Ok I tried photobucket so now I'll go to the tutorial

Tried Gravatar and it didn't like my launch codes then when I tried to change them it told me I couldn't because my email was already registered.

 So now I have an easy solution; you'll need to put on dark glasses and a long coat, go to a news agent you don't go to and buy a copy of heating magazine or that hello or any others like that and cut out the picture of Hugh Jackman, there's bound to be at least one with a picture of him, then get some PritStick and glue it to my posts each time you see one. There are no problems, only challenges.

Well, that didn't go quite as expected

As you can see I now have a signature (took me a while to work out how).

It's what I'd like on my headstone

Still trying but it's having none of it.

Tells me that the email is registered but I can't sign in.

It's starting to drive me nuts, I'm giving it a rest for now.

Well, that didn't go quite as expected

Welcome Tim, just found this thread, it was hidden underneath the tool bar.

Sounds like you are doing well. I am deep in rural France with several buildings and an acre! Am working on a sort of commune thing starting with eldest daughter and husband. I have solar tubes and heat exchanger for hot water, a wood burner in the lounge and wood burning Esse in the kitchen. No central heating!

Lots of good stuff here so do join in. I like the sound of your brewery. Something we will get around to once the building work is done! I have chickens and ducks too and plenty of free range eggs! This weekend I plan to make lemon curd to reduce the egg mountain a bit!

Trying to enjoy life as it is

Hi Aly

Sounds as though you really have your hands full. Well done on your sustainables.

We ended up abandoning the building and got back into the brewing.

Just getting into the latest batch of rhubarb at the moment, very clear, smells like a nice white wine has a fruity flavour sweet with a little bite.

Not too much of an expert but I know what I like.  Much respect for those who understand the brewing process and alcohol content and the like.

We'll be getting a drop of elderflower tomorrow so I'll be back to give a run down of that.

Just been an ad on the box (laying on the settee drinking the rhub vino) for girls to get ready for something exciting. A yoghurt, a flipping yoghurt, how is that exciting? I'm sure girls don't find yoghurt exciting.

We made courgette wine last year with a super big courgette but unfortunately it doesn't smell too good and it tastes nasty. I have to drink it with very strong flavoured crisps

Well, that didn't go quite as expected

Hi Tim, and a belated welcome to the forum from me.

I tried making a rhubarb wine a few years ago. It was ok but a bit sweet so I ended up blending it with a carrot wine which came out way too dry. The resulting brew was probably the best white wine I've ever made!

I haven't made any wine for a couple of years now and I do miss the whole process. I still have quite a few old bottles of various things in the shed which I should probably drink through first...
