  1. Ginger Nuts and Chocolate Digestives have been co-located. What kind of person...?

  2. I'd recommend Sungold if you get the chance to grow some more. I grew them along with Roma and Gardeners' Delight last year. With the weather being so poor, the Sungold still did well and therefore make a good insurance plant if we're in for the same this year. Sungold are a cherry variety that are ripe when orange. They were the first to the plate by quite some distance and taste great too.
  3. Anyone know how Spurs are getting on?

      Dreadful performance by Spurs. Some of 'em didnt look like they fancied it. Seemed to me that some of 'em didnt know what it would be like playing against Warnock's Leeds in Yorkshire!

    Before sunrise near Downton, Wilts.
  6. I'm not sure where this idea comes from. If it comes from PC, without independent verification, it's worth the square root of b*gger all, I'm afraid. Anyway, here's the rebuttal from the left http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/blog/2013/jan/21/boris-johnson-snow-climate-change?CMP=twt_gu
  7. Are you sure about that? I thought it was 85%? Either way, can we see some proof please? I suspect this is nonsense, but again proof would be gladly accepted. Sigh... BFTP Without wishing to speak out of turn, you're without doubt a bright chap, so surely you can see through the bluster? With the noise that's being made by PC and his followers at moment it strikes me that he's won the lottery rather than this being a day to day occurence. As an example, the 12-16th forecast was bobbins, as was the late december forecast*. Can't have it both ways I'm afraid. * by no means exclusive, but I c
  8. If Carlsberg did weekends...

  9. Found this poor little fella outside by the car yesterday.
  10. Triple decker sledging is the way forward

  11. As the last post in here was Coast's on the 31st, does that mean we've all stopped boozing since New Year?
  12. My 'last active' timestamp is rather optimistic.

  13. Cheers Coast. Yes, I'd got the lamb in for that very reason, but it had to be used on New Years Day. Having got in at 4, I wasn't really in the mood for experimenting, so the lamb went in a Jalfrezi instead. Pomegranate and honey though... Good one.
  14. Any recommendations for favoured Moroccan style dishes out there? I used my new tagine for the first time last night and went with Chicken thighs, dried apricots, green olives, roasted pistachios, ginger and chili, etc. It was fantastic. Just polished off the rest for lunch. Any other tried and tested suggestions for similar dishes would be most welcome. John
  15. A serious lack of favourite tipples this Chrimbo. Three days of cooking lager and fizzy wine. Is there an ombudsman I can write to?
  16. Wouldn't dream of it. Was he the cabin boy?
  17. Blimey, does that stuff not make your eyes bleed? Perhaps we should start a Real Ale review thread. This weekend I will mostly be drinking... ...and then post a review on a Monday, or in the case of your Christmas ale; a Wednesday.
  18. Something like a Ruby Red Ale in the winter. St Peter's do a cracker. They also brew a Winter Ale which I'll look out for. Though at 6.5%, I'll probably need to seek permission from my EPO before buying.
  19. I remember commenting at the time that UEFA's response would be pathetic, but that's simply a disgrace.
  20. Water, malt, hops, and yeast. Sounds bonkers, but works a treat.
  21. "Have you ever seen a ghost, Ted?" "Well, Dougal, one night I was staying in an old house in the middle of the country. It was once owned by a cruel landlord who didn't let his daughter marry a soldier she loved. So one night, she hung herself. I was staying in the room where she hung herself; it was deathly cold and lit by a single dying candle. And then I heard a creaking, groaning noise from the corner..." "Was it a ghost?" "No... So no, I've never seen a ghost"
  22. Agreed, although UEFA's response will no doubt be pathetic. The Serbian team and their ilk should be banned, but they won't be and this type of appalling behaviour will continue.
  23. Einstein's definition of Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The ref's been out attempting to bounce that ball three times now.
