I know its off topic but I'm guessing people around here will have some clues about alternative and traditional medicine etc and I did my back the other day (reaching down to get a bottle of wine; didn't even get to grab it let alone drink it) and I've used osteos for years but not in Auckland.

You know in 48 hours whether the lateral has survived and they produce as well as any from seed.
However, over the weekend, I noticed that spuds, being…Continue
