Strictly is back!

Neither should have been in the dance off although of the two the correct one went from watching only the dance. The look on Ed's face in the interview after said it all for me get him off.

Louise does it for me and that Latin was breathtaking for a rank amateur Kevin is very good for showing off his partner and it worked, Giovani and AJ are too full of themselves, Daisy has me 50/50, not quite sure, her feet do the right moves most of the time. Claudia I like though AJ needs to start putting her first.


Sssssssscared or what?

Bloody Penquins literally, some being smashed to pieces on rocks. Komodo dragons cage fighting, and F1 snakes after baby lizards, it was like watching WW3. I thought it would be a nice quiet nature film. Then we got Dan Snow searching for gold in the wilds of the Klondike on their own with helicopters boat builders tow boats and around thirty minders. Why did they not fly in do a bit of panning and fly out?


PS. I hid the kitkat in the fridge in case we get bears wandering around in the night.

Do what I do Verdun, blow dry it then water it. Three hair driers tied to forks stuck in the lawn usually does the trick. Oh and wear wellies that way the shocks will not kill you! Probably?


Christmas cooking

Logan, they normally do since their Mum passed away, this year for some reason they all think it their turn. Will toss a coin.

No cooking this year, three Daughters fighting over who feeds me. A bit of a problem as two are good cooks one is definitely up there with Mary Berry. I love being with the Grandchildren so that sorts it.

As a lad the whole family went to my Grand Ma's for Pudding Sunday, it was a great time as puddings and cake mixes were assembled in huge stone bowls. It was then put in pudding bowls and cake tins to cook when we got home, us kids got to clean out the mixing bowls, imagine all those sticky fingers H&S would have a fit. The smell of cooking Christmas cake was wondress to me, loved it then and still do.

Joyce, it is all the east coast, the bad weather is swirling over the North Sea and hitting all the coastal area's five miles inland it is dry.

The rain in town comes tumbling down November, it's November in the rain,

The Coastal front is up above November, it's November no sun again.

In the lane the trees in flame in November

Shed their leaves bare their limbs in November

Nature shuts down as the rain comes down November it's November in the rain.

Wet Wet Wet, Frank.

Stockton, the North Sea strikes again. Bitter cold wind, a cloudy sky, definitely not looking promising but "hey" off to Daughters now for sausage bacon and egg sandwiches, Daves birthday, should I take him fireworks I ask, I have some twenties going mouldy, coins that is not notes! Generosity is me?

Verdun, that is the way it should be, too much sadness in this world so would rather raise a smile than a fist "oo ah"! 

Cannot believe it, Stockton still has clear sky and sunshine, away out whilst it smiles on me.

Thank you Joyce ! "Err" I think? Next best? Never did like coming second that is a fail in my book.

here is the chorus. Definitely not Geordie Ridley.

Stockton now is nice and bright, the sun above is glowing,

The wind is blowing icy cold, some stocking tops are showing,

The girls turn round and snap at me just why are you grinning,

A good right hand a mighty smack sends my head a spinning.

Oo ah.

That is for Verduns Cornish version, oo ah.
