Wine corks?!  How many??!!  

I was referring to my big terracotta pot with the fig tree in ............ that'd take a lot of corks - and a lot of wine - Obelixx,  I'm seriously impressed!!!!!!!!

The muppet song ......oh yes, I love it!!!  I used to love Friday mornings with Chris Evans and Candyman, that was always played loud while I danced round the kitchen with my bemused teenagers watching in horror..... but he changed it!!  I'm looking forward to Carfest in August. 

Mrs Robinson is my loud S&G song 

One of the things  I miss most about work is Chris Evans on the car radio in the morning, How do you like your eggs, and Candyman etc - singing away with everyone else in the queues at the traffic lights - not quite the same on my own in the kitchen - but if we all do it together ..........????

Yes, I did some cross-referencing (used to doing that as I used to have to research some obscure medical conditions for work) and it was all a bit ambiguous .

Dove that is just a lemon cake if it's not drizzled then  surely

Yes, the recipe says the icing should 'drizzle down the sides' .............. wrong!


Fidget - re modding of threads - I think that would be fine for us old hands, but new posters would be very vulnerable to manipulation  and it gives the trolls and wums power, which is just what they want - one could start and control hundreds of threads and if we'd Ignored him/her we wouldn't know and be able to report to Daniel.

I've used polystyrene packaging broken into chunks - it works and doesn't weigh the container down too much.
