I prefer the RAF Breakfast that one used to get in the mess in the olden days before pay and dine. Start with a bowl of cereal - followed by fried egg, sausages, bacon, beans and tomato piled on top of two slices of fried bread - followed by two slices of toast with butter and jam, all washed down with a pint of coffee. (You might sneak a helping of scrambled egg too, if the duty cook was busy chatting up a WRAF)

...well we were mere teenagers and it was as cold as the Arctic out on the flight line.

The last time that I ate in a Naval Mess (Apres Pay and Dine) the food (for that is what they called it) was abysmal. The bacon appeared to come from a pig that had no meat, only fat. The sausages reminded me of Twiglets and the fried egg could have been used to repair splinter holes in a ship's side. The beans appeared to be slabs of tomato flavoured cardboard that cracked under pressure of the knife. I tried both the tea and the coffee; the tea was made from a leaf, I believe, and the coffee contained a form of sludge hitherto unknown to me. Luckily, I did not have to pay for the abomination as I was performing my last-ever Duty Mess President but I did feel sorry for the people who were paying for it and who did not seem keen to complain.

They say you learn something every day. Today my wife and I learnt that hair clipper numbers are Imperial not metric when I confidently told Mrs CP that my usual hairdresser used a number 3 to do the sides of my head and set up the clippers for her to do me. I now know that the 3 refers to 3/8 of an inch, not 3mm! Fortunately Mrs CP was able to rescue the situation so I don’t look too much more odd than usual!

Aye, Mustard goes well with a few chewy weevils.

Haven't seen rain here for weeks. Can't go to London and deprived of culture. If I wanted to live like this in a world deprived of meaning I'd have moved to WA.
