What passes you by?

Can't be doing with so called 'celebrity culture', a lot of modern films, Downton, Simon Cowell, motor sport and soap operas (with the exception of The Archers, which of course is real life). 

On the other hand I simply can't do without music, art, literature, growing things, wildlife/nature and cooking and eating good food.  I also enjoy watching athletics, tennis and equestrian sports on tv.

tee hee Dove, I've been looking at that one. Did you just add the BBQ time in  the oven?

No, but I think I probably rested it for at least half an hour covered with foil.  It was so soft and melting - really good. 

Think the silver nut dish etc may be in a box in the spare bedroom - I may try to find them, or as it's just the two of us here for Christmas, I may just manage without and find them when I sort out the heap of boxes in there that I've been meaning to sort for ages

Lawn getting destroyed - Possible Leatherjackets or Chafer beetles, Please help

Hazel, wash your hair, cover it with black plastic - if you've got leatherjackets they'll come to the surface

We're dining on lobster and salad, and if the weather's anything like decent we'll go for a walk across the marshes - if it's not then we'll put our feet up, read, listen to music and maybe watch a film.

Hosta, I've done this one and it's soooooooo good - I didn't finish it off on the BBQ but I'd love to try that
