This is a first for me, Frank....never disagreed with you before.

Of course, that's your viewpoint and you're entitled to it... but another thread, another day, eh?

Tootles - you've discovered why I stopped visiting GWL years ago.....in fact I've never visited since it amalgamated with the Good Food Show. When first introduced, they tried to kid us that the GFS was a free extra......no such thing, they hiked-up the price to account for it.

You can fool some of the people some of the time, etc.

Oh you must visit Chatsworth, OL. Breath-taking at every turn and the history.....including links to the Kennedys & Astaires.

I was last there at Christmas....such opulence.

Ignore the above.....just googled it and it seems Pemberley was based on Chatsworth.

One of my favourite books 

 

Hi, OL.....as you will know, much of it was based around Derbyshire and it seems she stayed where we had lunch when she was researching for the book. I would like to think that 'Pemberley' was based on nearby Chatsworth, but probably not.

Wish I'd have known, rosemummy....I would have popped in for a cuppa. Yes, it is a lovely town, one we visit often. We had lunch at the Rutland Arms Hotel......a nice meal which we dragged-out cos it was pouring with rain.

Be patient, your SPs will soon be in flower.

PS. Jayne Austen stayed at the Rutland Arms when she was writing 'Pride and Prejudice'.

Frank, I know you are a talented poet, but it doesn't stop there......there is poetry in your every post.

Rudyard Kipling, William Wordsworth, Keats.....okay I suppose, but could they dance?

Hope so, Tracey.....you deserve them.

Hope you don't get storm damage like we've had here today. I've just returned home having visited the Peak District and there must have been a heck of a storm while I was away......given the damage & mud around.

While we were in Bakewell at lunchtime there was a heavy thunderstorm.

My first picking of Sweet Peas!

Can't get the bluddy cursor to flash outside of the quote box... but, hey-ho!  

As predicted in my post (don't know if you read it) on 27/05/14......well done.
