Firm Peppermint Fondant Filling

Presenter

(and very fine it is too)
Morning all. A cold Tuesday with a cold Wednesday in prospect. What with this being (nearly) Winter and everything.
The little filming project I blogged about yesterday is now on iplayer here and good fun it is too. It really is for folk who love radio and enjoy hearing about folk talking about radio. So that could be you possibly. We scrubbed up pretty well for the most part (soft lighting needed).
Young Gary Barlow today with some tunes. His new album is Since I Saw You Last and he doesn't one for a while. Actually he's been around for ever and I recall quite a few Take That interviews over the years when they were just unruly juveniles (thanks grandad). Somewhere along the way he became an OBE and elder statesman and you can hear him tonight after 6.
And how about SELFIE oldies. It's the word of the year even though, beyond a certain age, the idea of a 'self-portrait photograph taken with digital camera or phone' from about 6 inches away, is not that appealing (vanity,all is vanity). And now the last portrait of Anthony Van Dyck which is described as 'the original selfie' needs £12million to keep in the UK, According to the National Portrait Gallery. So it's selfie time please...
Have a flattering and composed Tuesday, see you after 5.

    Morning all

    A bit grey and damp here. Busy day in store, so may not get much time to pop back.

    Deebee - if you're reading this - I hope all went well yesterday. Take care x

    Hello Wednesday ... we have been promised some 'warmer air'. Nice.

    Had a swift read back last night and there were a few things I'd missed commenting on:

    First off - massive congratulations to Amelia in her new job which looks likely to curtail her blog contributions. I will miss her posts - always original and packed with intelligent charm, wit and wisdom.

    Good news Sir Cumference on the reinstatement of your moniker, although I'll admit to being rather partial to Once a Knight ...

    I'll take the opportunity for another Get Well Soon! shout to Deebs along with a handwave of sympathy to others who may not be feeling too good either.
    It's that time of year isn't it? When we side-step anyone with even a hint of a husky/snotty/sniffy/coughy demeanour because the timing means we might CATCH IT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

    Enjoyable discussion re. Gary Barlow and the wider issue of whether we can truly admire a performer as a performer if their life values and choices clash with our own sensitivities.
    And Hurrah! for a blog which can also serve as a platform for those who feel strongly enough to state their position without others taking personal offence.
    Hark at me - posturing as some sort of elder! Am pretty sure neither Billie nor Zoe crave my approval. I just wanted to pass comment in a positive way and be thankful that our little corner of the interwebs is preciously free of flouncing huffiness ..
    ;^)

    Oh - and thanks Molly for your kind thoughts. Firstborn plus her partner and an old friend they've met up with, have just hopped over to the Corn Islands off the Nicaraguan coast for a little Caribbean break. She looks fit and healthy in all the photos. I do hope your lovely boy is enjoying his adventure.

    Just spotted your summary Amelia. Yay! I was aligned.

    :^)

    Hi Gazza... I used to like that Carpenters' song a long time ago and haven't heard it for a very long time. We saw The Carpenters at the Manchester Apollo a year or two before Karen sadly died and she was painfully thin but could play the drums brilliantly and her voice was unique.
