One of the main reasons I decided to develop this web
site, was the lack of basic knowledge available on a multitude of subjects. Once a

is like to be a complete novice.
This applies to everything from gardening, woodwork,
cookery, computers etc. etc. etc. This was highlighted when my daughter,

ethos of the site remains, however, which is to provide clear, concise,
practical information and advice suitable for everyone irrespective of age
