Here's a UK relative of the New World Order showing his gratitude along with surveying his loyal minions......we assume the Aussie representative, as featured on JB, will approve..........

I expect Wilbur had already been celebrating and was catatonic...

Brilliant story. Love the fact the cat was probably at the other pub.

Bluey glad to see your moggie's on the mend.

Thanks reddo ... he's a dear old thing and I hope his progress continues. I suspect Wilbur may have been out on the tiles all night and not yet recovered enough to celebrate in a more restrained manner.

As India prepares to launch a projectile to the moon for a bit of walkabout, 2 are dead and 40 trapped in a building collapse in Mumbai.
An estimated 2,000 people a year die in similar incidents in the country.
Some 70 percent of households in India still donít have access to toilets.

Today I made a lemon drizzle cake but forgot to put the lemon in. What should I call it?

In Denmark it would be a 'sandcake'.

Prolly what you said when you realised you hadn't put the lemon in. A f"*^>+¨@= cake.

I find it slightly odd that my favorite cake is plain pound cake.
No cream, no clotted cream, no whipped cream, no ice cream, no drizzle of fruity flavor, no cherry on top, no chocolate sauce,
no anchovies......

Thanks hifly, I can`t put that on the cake box. Sandcake it is. The lemon is staring at me on the windowsill, so my first attempt at baking is a failure.

You cannot accept that your cake is a failure - it will be perfectly edible.

We were introduced to sandcake whilst living in Denmark where it seemed to be the most popular version.
In return we introduced them to our fruit cake - which they tried to eat in slices similar to sandcake!

I kind of hope this is true so I can meet the 5 cats I have had in my life.

I got attacked by an enormous and extremely vicious cricket in my kitchen this morning. Felt something land on the underside of my forearm, looked down and could just see a large green leg sticking out and in my surprised knocked it away - no idea where the bugger went! I know what it was as I found his mate on the kitchen door earlier and transferred it to the lawn. About an inch and half long, never seen one that large in the garden, thought it was a locust.

Where's the cat? She seems to be a keen entomologist AND probably enjoys Bush Tucker Challenge!

Edit: found him! What a glorious piece of work he is!

Never spray fly killer on a cricket. Won't say how I know this.
