I tried Sungella and was full of anticipation for it after reading about it, but I was rather disappointed. The flavour was a bit bland and not like Sungold and the skins were a bit tough. I always grow Sungold, they are the best cherry tomatoes, I buy the seeds in England, but I live in France and the varieties here are not the same so I can't advise you on what else to get.

Lyn and Dean and all those who can't see the difference between horse meat and other meat, perhaps that is because you have never had a friend who is a horse. I have kept Jersey cows, sheep, chickens, ducks and horses. Horses are way above the others in intelligence and emotions. My horse is a friend and I could never eat a friend or her friends.

Cows are far below horses in intelligence, they are like eating machines, a bit like a shark of the land. The sheep were just thick. The chickens were horrid to any chicken that had been wounded or was ill. My ducks were quite bright and rather sweet. I couldn't eat duck when I kept them. Research has been done to show that a horse can learn to understand 200 human words.

You are very patient. Don't his wings move fast, reminds me a bit of a hummingbird.

Just been out for a walk, (before my last post, don't want you thinking it was that short!)  wish I'd worn my cycling glasses. But togged up like Becks it was fine otherwise. The restaurant says we can postpone our friends' lunch tomorrow till next week. More snow forecast tomorrow.

Since the menopause I have take HRT, had dreadful hot flushes, dry hair, felt bad. HRT was great, had some osteoarthritis in left hip and it completely disappeared. Now the Doc wants me to stay on a low dose as I ride and he says it helps to prevent osteoporosis. Now it's 10 years later and hip starting up a bit again. Luckily I have no history of breast cancer in the family so Doc says I can stay on low dose HRT.

What's the weather like in your area?

"Play Misty for Me" is a psychological thriller with Clint Eastwood about an unbalanced girl who falls for a DJ. I saw it years ago. A bit "Fatal Attraction"ish.

-7° here. Snow is crunchy. Blue sky. The sort of day that would be 35° in August! I hope you are wearing pyjamas and a dressing gown Geoff, not dressed sounds a bit chilly!
