Armistice dayMy father was wounded in WW1 in Belgium and again on the Somme, but his mental health remained good, This poem was for those suffering from PTSD. We had one such in the family, my father-in-law, a brave man with many awards; a skipper-lieutenant in the Royal Navy in WW2. PTSD was ill understood in the [email protected] and he never got adequate treatment. LaurelC.ViewDate:

Storage hints and tips to make your food last longerThis is useful. Now that we don't eat so much there's always leftovers, and veg and fruit is often sold in packages that are too large for us. I often freeze the second half of what I cook, remember to LABEL IT CLEARLY or you won't know what goodies you've got!
