I am not talking about emptying the chamber pots of the whole family on one
lemon tree daily but pissing on one of my fruit trees as the opportunity
arrises. I cannot persuade Her Indoors to contribute.
We can argue about what is meant by 'sterile', if you need special modern
techniques to detect pathogens but still they are there you are technically
correct. However from a practical point of view it is not a health risk.
Of course anything composted is far from sterile by any definition.
A good idea in principle but much harder to manage in practice. Feces do
require considerable care and management to be safe whereas urine doesn't.
As you observe much more suited to a dry climate. I have friends who have
for idealogical reasons installed composting toilets in a wet climate and it
is a constant source of problems.

much sympathy, it's no fun, that is for sure!
my chiropractor has helped me a lot. and i've
done a lot of studying to see what is going on and
what might help the most. right now i am stable
and fairly pain free (off and on again problems for
37 years). i am not restored to perfect function
though so i do have to be wary of certain things
and pay attention to when my back has had enough.
unfortunately, most people are not taught how to
take care of their back in health class or on the
job training (along with proper lifting techniques).
for some jobs this training should be mandatory
along with a basic fitness test (to make sure your
abdominal muscles are strong enough and lifting
techniques are proper).
the morning is the most likely time to blow out a
disc because they get recharged at night and the fluids
in them make them stiff until you can get them
limbered up (gently).
if you are doing any kind of garden work or heavy
lifting or even bending in the morning it is always
a good idea to warm up first.
most of the injuries to my back could have been
avoided had i known such things. it's always a bad
idea to take someone and throw them into heavy
work without conditioning and training. had i been
given such i think i could have avoided most of my
troubles and the injuries i did have would have been
much less troublesome over the longer term.
living some place i could swim in the ocean on a
regular basis would be really nice and the most help.
around here i try to take regular walks and of course
keep active in the gardens when the ground isn't
Yes, as do I. Good to hear that you are fairly pain free these days
Mornings are worst for me these days as, during the day my 'tenderloins'
subconsciously bunch up and semi-immobilise the injured area. Late in the
day they feel like hard rubber and I'd have difficulty moving my disc-less
area if I wanted to. However they relax as I sleep and, during the early
part of the day I feel very vulnerable and take great care not to twist my
Very much so.
My injury was a freak occurance and, while I'd never put myself in a
situation where it could occur again it wasn't something that could have
been avoided by education. That said most back injuries *could* be avoided
if only people were given more information and bosses were made to stick to
a code of conduct with their workers.
Swimming in the ocean would be nice - as long as there wasn't too much surf
to put pressure on my lower back. However I now live on the cheap side of
town and going for walks is almost inviting trouble so my excercise is
limited to gardening and (careful) lawnmowing.
