White pudding is more common in Cornwall and Devon than black pudding - although black pudding is the food of the Gods!  

HELLO FORKERS!

Sister texted me earlier, Verdun - she was sitting on the cliffs near Bude, in warm sunshine, watching the ocean - just rubbing in the fact that she's there, and I'm here!

Today I feel so happy....

Ice cream wasn't cheap KEF, but, oooooooooh the taste - just the best I've had 

Can't believe I've not bothered to go there before!

PG - my wife is getting clothes from daughter as She lost weight ( but hopefully she will get them back soon  )

Faith in human nature is restored! Went to my local farm, Lacey's at Studley Green in the Chilterns, where they have an award-winning herd of Guernsey cattle. I went to their farm shop, lovely old flintstone dairy building, and bought some home-made chocolate ice-cream ( Guernsey milk and Guernsey cream), and some full-cream milk. The shop also had cream, honey, jams and new-laid eggs - all produced on the farm, which is quite a large operation.

The reason for this post is that the shop is unmanned, and you simply write what you take in a big ledger, and put the appropriate money through a postbox in the wall ( there is also a big bowl full of small change should you need it!)

The stock must be worth a few hundred pounds, and I could have taken anything. I just love the fact that, in this gorgeous setting, the owners are happy to trust us all to do the right thing. Well done, all at the Farm!

Only have eggs for breakfast if I manage to buy locally new-laid - and they MUST be accompanied by loads of white pudding! Oh, just thinking about it.............!

Red Kites

Posted: 17/10/2013 at 15:47

At Studley Green, high in the Chilterns this lunchtime, and driving down the road I was surrounded by red kites, swooping 20 to 30 feet above me! Further along, I spotted an obviously serious photographer who had put some food in a field, and there were over 60 kites diving around, trying to get at their lunch - very reminiscent of gulls going berserk in St. Ives,when it's lunchtime and everyone is eating pasties!

I'm sure you know, Jim, that in India the kites are commonly referred to as 'sh..e hawks'

Serious stuff......no! Really

Sorry to hear of latest development Tea drinker - best wishes for the future.

This Forum is becoming very odd lately. Time to sit back and think about it.
