Hey folks!  I used to have an adblocker but I've had to download a new version of Firefox and I've lost the adblocker - can't remember which one it was I downloaded - anyone got a link to a good one?

Wonky, I must say that your husband's family are probably the most integrated East Anglians I've come across, despite your hub being first generation British and his parents only having been here since the 1960s - no ghetto for them

 There you are DD  

Miserable weather here - just popped to Waitrose for some tea bags and laundry detergent etc - had a look at the gin 'cos I noticed last evening that the level's getting a bit low - but no special offer on any that I like - anyone know of a supermarket doing reduction on Bombay Sapphire?

Winter Veg Planting

Quickly pop some Broad bean Aquadulce Claudia in now while the soil temperature is still unseasonably warm - they'll grow very slowly over the winter and give an early crop in the late spring, avoiding blackfly infestation.

Mine are just peeping through the soil surface now

Anyone doing any gardening?

I can't see that it's a good idea to sell arms to people who may have grievances (real or imagined) against us. 

A good while ago we knew an arms dealer and his farmily quite well (they were customers of our family business).  He had been merrily selling arms (including missiles) to the military dictatorship in Argentina for many years, with the full support of the UK government - then suddenly his sales were frozen by the UK and the next day we were at war with Argentina. The change happened that quickly. 

We'd always known that Argentina claimed the Falklands/Malvinas ............. but they wouldn't do anything about it, would they?

Good morning Wonky   ((hugs))

Turkey stock made and strained here - can I find room in the freezer for it, or will we be having turkey soup before Christmas

Totally agree Hosta

Hmmm wondering why this has been going on at Norwich airport the past few days, rather than at the military aerodromes in East Anglia

Are they going to evacuate us, and if so where are we going?

I just wish this government would stop encouraging/allowing separate 'faith' schools.

An education system which discriminates on the basis of wealth or class is bad enough - a system where children of different cultures and faiths are educated separately is a recipe for disaster - have we learned nothing from the experiences of Northern Ireland?
