I've noticed a growing trend in many countries towards "organic" and "natural" pet products ie. foods, treats, and even accessories like hemp collars and leashes. In the States, where some people choose pets over children, you will see upscale boutiques and pet wellness centers popping up everywhere. I, in fact, had one of those shops. I owned a Pet Wellness Center where I groomed animals and sold holistic dog treats, foods, and even all natural shampoos, conditioners, and cleaning products. I miss those days and I want to have my Pet Wellness Center here, in Ireland.
What I need are Irish based companies that make those fantastic products. I promoted "made in the USA" when I lived there and now I want to do that here. I know of a couple treat companies that sell amazing products. I just need to find shampoos, conditioners, cleaning products, collars, leashes, and any other "natural" pet product the Irish can muster up to go along with them.
If anyone knows of anyone who makes these amazing products and needs a person to sell them, call me, email, send a skywriter, do whatever it takes to let me know about these people. I have a big mouth and I'm not afraid to use it when it comes to promoting excellent quality products "Made in Ireland".
I spoke to one Irish company who has a fantastic product line. They still have to work their day jobs full time to pay their bills because they "don't have the American way of selling things". Which I can only assume means being a big mouth like me and getting out there to give out free samples and talking people up. I LOVE giving freebies away. It's a total icebreaker. So give them to ME and I will sell the hell out of you. Then, once my shop is up and running and your products are flying off my shelves, we both end up happy. See, win win.
To contact me call 086 732 1841 or email at email@example.com. I look forward to chatting with you.

For those of you out there that can't tolerate cow or goat milk because of a lactose intolerance, you often end up seeking out alternatives and come across things like overpriced oat or rice milk. Well here's a cheap and easy way to get a better quality, better tasting, version of what's in stores, without all those pesky preservatives.
It really is the easiest thing to make. All of the ingredients are most likely already in your kitchen.
All you need is:
1 cup Porridge Oats (not instant oats)
1 tbsp Demerara Sugar, Honey or Agave Nectar (sweeten to taste)
1 tsp Olive or Sunflower Oil
6 cups warm water
Once you've got all the ingredients just add them in any order and blend for about 10 seconds. The mixture should turn white (like in the picture). If it's still clear your water isn't warm enough. Then strain into a pitcher and you're done. Use in hot and cold cereals or drink it straight.
For a stronger flavor and thicker oat milk let it set for about 30 minutes. You can also make your own rice or almond milk too. Just follow the same instructions as above only add 2 cups cooked brown rice or 500g ground almonds instead. Let the almonds set longer than the rice or oats to get the full flavor.

This is what I woke up to this morning, snow. I marveled at the sight for about 2 seconds until I remembered I just transplanted everything yesterday. I jumped out of bed and rushed outside to drag all of my pots in.
I just told someone the other day that we rarely get snow too. Should have kept my mouth shut. Luckily it was only a dusting. Then an hour later this happened.
I was tempted to bring the pots back outside but decided to wait a while. With such unpredictable weather I didn't want to risk it. I was right to wait too because a few hours later we got even more snow.
And to top it all off, my cat decided to dance in the pots and crush my beet root seedlings, break a few broccoli stems, and even snap a borlotto bean plant in half. Oh and he even managed to dump an entire tray of seedlings killing most of them. He's still alive but I came very close to giving him the boot out into the cold. Bad kitty!!
