Positive thoughts and silly things for the tough times

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 21:16

My best friend has a plaque at her house in Crete that says:

May this home to every guest,

Be a place of peace and rest.    Totally is.

mascaraed rose

I asked a while ago about one that I thought was called Harlequin, but Masquerade sounds very familiar. Ginnie1, what type of rose is it ? A climber? What colour do you expect it to be?  Think I might have been looking for the wrong one.

David..this was 1971 !!!   God how tight were my parents?  Think the old chap who gave Dad the urn told him what to do. I still call the Urn " Harold H.... " after him. He was a great help / inspiration in Dad's early gardening years. Even if he tried to poison the kids.

I'll take a picture of it, not thrilling, but hey...olden times

Flora, very sorry I have waffled on and gone off your subject. Hope someone has some more sensible ideas.

David all I do is point the camera, I love it.

It's every other shot I'm poor at. Think the camera has decided it only likes flowers

I haven't bothered sweating them down. Just chopped and frozen as I'll only use them them in stews and will just put less liquid in due to what comes from the leeks. Don't take this as gospel, it's my stews I might wreck

Eggs, and cooking with them

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 20:06

Years ago , 40+.  Dad got a lot of fresh free range eggs and preserved??? them in a big stone pot ( urn with a lid on kept in the garage soaked) with brine I think.  

You had to stick your hand in this slimy stuff to get the eggs out  I live to tell the tale. I still have the pot as a garden ornament. You obviously don't need to do that

All I can think is pickled eggs. Or hard boiled for egg & spoon races  Basically no help at all sorry.

David egg bound is a fallacy, binds cakes not bowels.  More likely cholesterol doc's after you.
