My total alcoholic consumption is usually somewhere between three and five drinks per year.
Struth!!!!

I hope I can still be a member of our gang in spite of that small personality defect though ...
Er...well...I guess so. Ok with me. The rest of you on this thread ok with that, yes?

I am going to have to think about it. Poor social skills and a moggy owner. I think perhaps a period of probation? What do others think?

Don't worry Bluie, my nephew-in-law (so to speak) is an Aussie and he doesn't really drink. Despite that little flaw (my niece drinks him under the table), he's a great chap!

I just KNEW my lack of drinking skills would get me into trouble one day! Perhaps someone can recommend a suitable training course?

Yeah Pinky you’d be four or five a night wouldn’t you ?

or you could declare you just don’t drink anymore (or any less for that matter) 🍷🍷

As a Son of the Barossa, (as indeed are you!!) I can neither confirm or deny that.

Indeed a fairly accurate observation.

(Coming from someone who once joined me in the consumption of a couple of small bottles of Red in YPLC late one night ''a few years'' back!)

Bluey, a bit south of you is a place called Margaret River, with multiple opportunities for lessons to be had.

A long time ago, my antipodean uncle took me on a tour of the Barossa Valley. During, one tasting, I asked if the wine I was drinking was from a good year,
"Every year's a good year here, mate"
So that was me told

This morning part of the frame I was standing on to cut the hedge gave way under me. Fortunately, my head took the brunt of the fall so no vital organs were damaged and there was minimal blood loss. Now the hedge has a Mohican and SWMBO won't let me up there to finish the job!

First she refused to trust me to use a ladder to clean the upstairs windows, now it is hedges. What next - changing light bubs? Perhaps I should feign late onset concussion and insist on being waited on hand and foot in a darkened room?

As a very long-time comrade and TRRAPSOIT member I stand by you, Mme Diamond. Although your non-drinking is of course an inacceptable behaviour (in principle), there is no need for corrective action as you have served this esteemed thread for such a long time that, in fact, you are the DNA of its collective and institutional memory. What would anybody in here do without you (and a very few others)??

Hug, please!

Just had a late shuffle round my local common expecting to see bats coming out to play as the light slowly faded. Not a one! What I didn't expect to see was a hare - never seen one up there before. Big bugger he was, size of a small fox and lived up to their reputation for speed!

2.3°C and the air is full of busy little snowflakes, brrr.

Forewarned was forearmed, and I have a pot of pea soup cooking.

Made chicken soup yesterday ... turned out quite delish really!

SIRI ... "A jellycopter."

I shall buy a chicken tomorrow and will no doubt convert its carcass to soup at the of the week. Last time I had one, I made the stock, couldn't be bothered to do the soup and cooked rice with it instead which was quite rice... er nice. My chicken soup varies a bit in taste quality, sometimes it's great, sometimes it's a bit bland.

I have a gadget that can pressure cook then roast a chicken. For the liquid under the chicken, I use a mix of fresh herbs, wine and chicken stock. When the bird is cooked, I remove it to rest and pressure cook fresh vegetables and rice in the stock. Then I strain out the vegetables to serve with the chicken and put the stock in a pot and freeze it for next time. It just gets better and better. If I end up with too much stock, I make risotto.
