I'm with you TTC 


And I'm home   Nice day spent with son - haven't really spent much time together since Ma's funeral - so good to have a catch up 

Donald or hillary?

I suspect that having seen the vilification heaped on a thoroughly capable and decent man like Obama, it's a position that has attracted only the most arrogant and egocentric.

Young Kale Plants

You don't eat the hard stems of kale!   You strip the leaves from the mid-rib.  We had curly kale for supper last night with our Irish stew - delicious.


Curly kale needs no protection from the weather, snow or no snow.  It survives anything the British weather can throw at it (that's why it's so popular with the pigeons  - when everything else has died, the kale stands tall on the allotment).


However, Curly kale seeds should have been sown in the spring and planted out to grow on ages ago.

I've given up watching Question Time most weeks Pdoc - I used to watch it religiously (well, not religiously, but you know what I mean) ... and listen to Any Questions and Any Answers and was a paid up and active member of a political party and knew a few politicians and political secretaries etc (and a former Cabinet Member, but not of my party!) - these days I listen to the Today programme on R4 and read the Indie and a couple of broadsheets, usually online, and that's enough for my stress levels.  


Son is hugely interested in European and American  Political History and Current Affairs and is incredibly well informed - a discussion with him is totally exhausting.  Not sure his interest is that good for his stress levels either

G'day Pat 


Im totally fed up with mischief-making press trying to give the impression that it's ok to go against the country's constitution - that's called anarchy!!! Things can be done, Brexit can happen, but things have to be done in a constitutional way, otherwise we might just as well have mob rule. The press and some politicians are being totally irresponsible

Beware chaos in the GC carpark BL!   They've got building work going on at the moment - they're building a new restaurant and other things. The farm shop is in the far left corner as you drive in. They usually have very good lamb but smaller joints only. Have a lovely day

Haven't seen Fairy around lately ... Have I missed her or is she stuck up a mountain somewhere?
