Hmmm, one has just had another hot cross bun, only this time one added a layer of lemon curd to the butter,delish! spiffing justaposition of flavours, cinnamon and lemon, yummy Delia Smith would probably write a book had she made this astounding discovery.

Monsieur l'Homme Invisible.

have you tried raw garlic ?

A bit tough I must admit but it works like a charm for me (a clove or two thinly sliced with bread or cheese for dinner - do not forget to remove the germ)

Although the missus might appreciate it a little less.
No French kissing for 12 hours.

The town's siren sounded the start and the end. Lots of ship's horns blew erratically throughout. 3 minutes of silence at midday.

Bre901,

Thanks for that,

I have just tried some strawberries, chopped up banana and single cream with a springling of sugar.

It sure as hell wont stop my eyes watering but boy does it taste good.

Will try the garlic tomorrow,

French kissing not a problem, we dont even do English nowadays !!!

If the Continental airliner had only pushed back from Honolulu three hours earlier, I would have been 49 FOREVER!

Happy Birthday, Binos.



A DOUBLE MIND
Hmmm ... I wonder if that might make me twice as smart as the average Tailwagger ... but I'm in two minds about that!

Gainsey --

Was it you that left the gate open?
Not guilty sir. I was off to Seaford which is in East Sussex whereas I believe your gate was in West Sussex. The actual fields where I saw the lambs were outside Rodmell near Newhaven.

I say, EDDNHopper and Bre901 appear to have got involved in a bit of scientific scrap. Can anyone tell me what it's about? I'm afraid science is not my strongest point.

And at the weekend the England cricketers produced a rather nifty win over the West Indies in Jamaica. They'll have been on the grog after that and will be spending Jamaican dollars (JMD). They'll get 60.47 of them for each U.S. dollar. But they'll probably have pounds with them, so a rare sterling conversion -- 109.26 per quid.

And a quick edit to add my birthday greetings to Binos, one of the few posters here who is older than me.....

Somewhat overcast in the Smoke, but mild.

Overcast and dull this AM, least its mild,only six Swans left on me lake now, rest have buggad off,they ignored Drapes yesterday, one bag of breadcrumbs was scattered and ignored apart from a couple of Ducks, but they seem preoccupied with strange mating rituals, couple of Cormmorants have appeared and were sitting on the island with wings outstreched,

Expecting a parcel today, its bound to come when one is at the shop or somesuch, they always do.
One is in a vaugley dissatisfied mood today,dunno why.

Drapes, I suggest you try another cross bun
Here very sunny and mild temperature. Too bad I have to go earn a living late this afternoon and leave that pleasant spot of Earth. Germany tomorrow so probably no sunny weather

Lovely mild, sunny day here but still no frogs in my pond. Getting worried now - saw a couple of magpies bathing in it at the weekend - can they have gobbled up all the spawn? never did like magpies.

We started from temperature scales (Celsius, you know), and ended up in thermodynamics.
I also tried to point out that our perception of temperature is quite subjective, but it looks like I did not succeed

However, there's nothing to worry about, it won't burn you if you don't touch it

Very sunny and mild on this side of the Channel, too.

We have a prune tree blossoming in the garden, smells like honey . We have to walk under it every time we go in or out.

Grey & grotty here.

Mr Angels, one never really doubted your sagicity on the matter of gates, but one has to check.

Cormarants seem to be on the increase Mr D; several pairs have been seen in this area, apparently causing much chagin amongst the angling community .

At least the Cormarants eat what they catch, unlike the silly buggas who sit out in the rain all day then chuck the fish back in.

Cormmorants have decamped (Lorrains brecky show could do with being decamped,seems to feature more chaps with lisps than ever nowadays) Lorraine looks spiffing as per though.
three Swans have reappeared they seem indifference to offered crumbs and wheat again this morning,prolly the parks dept,they don't feed them in the winter when the birds really need feeding, and they recommense feeding them in the spring when they really don't need feeding.
It was ever thus.

No parcel as yet, one left a note on door instructing parcel delivery man to leave it at neigbours.


TC, those airyplane thingies cost a fortune,you will be paying for it for the rest of your life, why not settle for a car like the rest of us.

Chinese fishermen tie string around cormorants' necks to prevent them from swallowing. They then remove anything they have caught for supper. Well, why keep a bird and fish yourself?

M 901, at the risk of starting another scrap, what you have in your garden is almost certainly a plum tree. The fruit does not become a prune until it has dried out.
