YOu don't have to peel them, the skin is not too thick and there is lots of flavour in it. It can be picked out easly when cooked if you don't want to eat it.

Try Aviva for a quote Geoff, OH just had a good price from them.

Sorry I missed your party Chris, it was a bit far from HK. Just sitting in the business lounge with my colleagues, drinks are free in the evening until 9.30!

Morning/afternoon forkers, just back from Stanley bay, had a meal in a German Beer Hall which was on top of a Chinese Martimie Museum, strange as it sounds. Very nice trio of creme brulees, orange, pistachio and hazelnut. Lovely but not very German. Starting to go dark here now or is it the block of flats in front of me? Bought some presents too.

Off to the Business lounge for tea and snacks shortly.

Hope you are all keeping dry.

Morning all, hope I didn't put the mockers on Andy, it was just the first set he had one.

No teaching today, going out to Stanley Bay. A little beach, no smog, a market, so stuff to buy. We'll have lunch and then come back to the city. Going on the bus, always an experience out here. Buses, trams and taxis everywhere. Constantly doging people on the pavements. They are very focused on where they want to be, best not to get in there way or you might end up in the gutter.

Love you and leave you, will catch up later.

Morning all. Just finished work, off now until Tuesday evening. Am exhausted, jet lag catching up with me. I missed deep snow in Bacup , OH drove home in nasty conditions too, road closed later. All being washed away now though.

HK dull, but warm, bedroom cold. Fierce air conditioning. Been up to the business lounge for peppermint and tea, scone jam and cream! Need to find someone to go to eat tonight, if I don't fall asleep.

I see the boy won.

Don't complain Geoff, you should see the TV here! Asian fillms, CNN, BBC World News and Asutralian drama. I am currently learning about Gudia and Salvador Dali. I would happily wtahc the Hurt Locker now.

8 hours in front of you. Just had a nice meal includiing HK version of bread and butter pudding, a bit strange with apricots in the bottom and a sponge like top with cinnamon. Free wine in the business lounge, only had one glass, got to teach tomorrow. 2 till 10 job, so you might not hear from me.

Walked to the part this afternoon, lovely trees and the flowers out. Ols me playing mah jong, sat and watched the bowling.

Do we have more new forkers than Bunny, I haven't caught up with the latest pages.

Night all
