    Usga. = Usha. = absent Landlord!

    My personal Dictionary doesn't work any more,has memory problems,just like myself!

    I really don't like using initials,but for eg, I would have to type in FergusandM before it suggests the complete name for me,so it's easier to use initials!

    Mary,you said before you didn't mind me still calling you that as I really don't like calling you tlv and it takes too long to type it out in full!

    Same for H Man!

    Now,Tolly,you're OK with a short name,as are Minty and Usha!

    50 - " Usga" on the Lenten blog! tut tut

    Hants Man: no, I don't mind 'Archerphile' at all, quite flattered you remembered it in fact. Might even go back to using it instead of K2tog!

    DD: watched Shetland again tonight, my goodness, the plot is getting very complicated isn't it? But I'm sure this story is not written by Ann Cleeves herself, they are just using her characters. I think all her Shetland books have now been dramatised ( except the latest which I have just read)

    Oh, poor little Horrid Henwy, what's his Daddy and nasty Granny Ursula going to do to him? He and his Mummy are going to have a wretched half term I'm afraid.

    I can hardly bear to listen next week, but know I shan't be able to resist.

    Yes,with cloves,slice of lemon also,as I said,purely to soothe my throat,I will take no pleasure in it!
    Have left messages for you and Usga on the Lenten blog!

    Glad your girls enjoy the pancakes, I'm afraid I had to buy a packet, had them with lemon and honey!

    Years ago,we used to make funny Val cards,eg,cutting funny pics out of mags and glueing them onto white cardboard,folded to make a card!

    Watched the first episode of Dr Foster,brilliant,only four more to go!

    Minty, I respect your standpoint. I wasn't making a judgement.

    40. - Minty, so well expressed.
    Did you mean re "a problem with faith" in the sense of organised religion (if that is what you meant?) then I understand. In all honesty, these days my posterior rarely kisses an actual pew, and yet, I still find it comforting to know that (when I want/need it) the church is there...

    DD - Hot port - is that that like a hot toddy with port replacing the whisky, sounds more smooth and soothing i must say. Bit early for me!

    Thanks,44, TLJ,
    I thought perhaps you were answering someone called Keri who had posted on one of the other blogs!
    Well,maybe the Dragon Mother will stay at Grey Gables and just do her duties as 'prison officer' during the day when the Dragon is at work!
    It might be beneath her to stay in such a small cottage!

    Good Morning F&M,
    Chip butties! Nice!

    I'm still on THE LIST,along with Tolly and H Man!

    Well,this just isn't good enough! Usha opens up this Establishment,then swans off to a FISH FRY(prob with Bert Fry!), leaving us all to fend for ourselves!
    I'm still waiting for my white wine,ray and PROPER CHIPS with salt and vinegar, but no bar staff to be seen!

    Think I'll just have to settle for a hot port,purely for medicinal purposes,for my sore throat!
