very expensive! but his process sounds somewhat unique... I thinking 'terrior' (spelling correct?)

turn it up to at least 75F... even 80F at this point wont hurt it...

....all the blonde belgians I met were sweet too... le sigh!

what was the difference? just 'fresher'? are the varieties they sell grown exclusively in Hawaii or imported?

Cmon now! You don't like purple kitchens?! So are you going to be able to find a piece of land to build your dream house on in that area... I'm assuming there's alot of farmland around? is it even possible to zone it out for what you want? and whats wrong with buying one of these existing houses and remodling it a bit? You seem to like to remodel....

For the folks who rant about this being just a DFH infomercial...I sense some jealousy!

You're saying 400 euros to build a new house, understood. Is it possible to buy a 'used' house there? There's gotta be houses on the market for sale that are much lower priced?! And do you get a mortgage over there to buy a house like you do here?

not gluten free...As it contains a moderate amount of gluten, Spelt is closely related to the common form of wheat and is not suitable for people with coeliac disease. Some people with an allergy or intolerance to common wheat can tolerate spelt.
An ancient form of wheat.
whole spelt can be used interchangeably with whole wheat.

I'm with Mikey, why would you want to invest in someone else's property?! Save your money so you can get your own place sooner. How much of these improvement do you get to take with you?

The Pub / Re: Feline Chronic Renal Failure
« on: December 01, 2010, 02:14:15 AM »
we just had to put down one of our cats earlier this year due to renal failure. He was about 10. We noticed that he lost alot of weight pretty quickly, he went from about 22-24# to about 15 when we finally noticed something was going on. (we had been trying to reduce his weight for quite a while and though we were finally successful...) But this cat used to drink a ton of water, then as he got worse he stopped drinking. We had to give him the fluids under the skin for a while. He wouldnt eat the renal food either. We just basically spoiled him for the last couple months, giving him plenty of wet food and treats so to keep him as hydrated as possible, but we made the decision early on that when we thought his quality of life was declining, we'd put him down. All you can do is just try to keep him hydrated and comfortable and enjoy him while hes still here. Its not fun watching anyone or anything die slowly.

I also keep a bottle of chocolate coffee flavoring around, sometimes put it in my coffee, sometimes add it to a porter or stout if I'm feeling like it... works very well and I don't have to flavor up an entire keg/batch.
