HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

I had an email a few days ago Pdoc - she was trying to stay away from the pooter due to RSI type problems.  

Obelixx - similar thing happened when son adopted Doorak - he was very poorly - he's reached a fine old age, but it was not good at the time.

Topbird - if you haven't got anywhere already picked out, we ate at Cay Tre in Soho about 12 months ago with a friend who has travelled extensively in Vietnam - he was impressed and we loved it.

In the early days of Strictly the clear inference was that nobody would have had any formal dance training.  It quickly became apparent, even to those of us with two left feet, that the claim was on dubious ground. 

Funnily enough they were talking to Erin Boag on Take 2 this evening.  She commented that in the early years Strictly was a dance show pure and simple, whereas over recent years it has change to a dance based entertainment one.

Personally, I'm not bothered whether people have dance training or not.  I am bothered when false claims are made.

See original post

 What has to be accepted that the BBC have always wanted to have the most watched entertainment show on Saturday nights. For years Strictly was trounced by the X-factor.

The Executive Producers, the current being Louise Rainbow were charged with making the show more competitive by attracting a wider audience particularly younger viewers. This has been achieved at the expense of turning it into "a dog and pony show."

Like much  of TV it's "all smoke and mirrors." You just have to take it as you see it.

 I agree,  it's 'Light Entertainment' , not the Olympics.

Neck's a lot easier today thanks - I took painkillers before bedtime so I was relaxed and comfy when I went to bed, and had the shower set on Pulse on my neck for a good 5 mins this morning - that's really helped 

Not a cloud here either Hosta, and very sunny ... bright blue sky ......... and 1.2C !!!  The birdbath is set solid!!!  Enjoy the beach.  

We're eating very well here this week   I'm trying to make some space in the freezer so we will have room for Christmas things - consequently I'll be roasting a small piece of top rib for supper, slow roasted with roasties, yorkshires , purple sprouting and roasted squash ... you can form a queue ... those bearing wine will be allowed in ...

And does anyone else think that parliamentary aides and advisors seem to be singularly stupid? Having worked in law and social services where we would have been sacked for breaches of confidentiality my advice would be... Buy a Bdooly Briefcase!!! I'm sure you can afford one!!!

Native cowslips flower later than primroses and need different conditions - more sunshine and better drainage.

Good morning all  A crisp bright white morning here. Hopefully a sharp enough frost to kill some bugs - we certainly didn't have one like this last winter. Second coffee has arrived.

Theres a bit of a frost in the back garden, but OH says the grass is crunchy at the front.

Sweet dreams all   See you in the morning  ...
