It was a long weekend here and we spent it down at Margaret River. I’d better explain where and what Margaret River is… It’s located 290 km south of Perth and it used to be a sleepy dairy farm area with a great reputation for surfing. Now it’s full of excellent wineries, talented craftsmen and […]
I suppose the question on every potential holistic eater’s lips is: But is it really expensive? We all suppose it is, but how do we really know? By keeping track of course! I guess it’s the engineer in me, and I do like a good spreadsheet, especially one that shows comparisons… As part of our […]

Actually it’s quite a challenge – especially in regard to the choice and selection of organic fruit and vegetables available in the local supermarket (or lack of…). We’ve […]
We made a momentous decision yesterday – to be totally organic by 1 March 2009 in everything. Actually it was scary to think that everything I currently used not only had to change to something new but I also had to find it all in 3 weeks! The thought of the cost of changing everything […]
