Still, when you serve it up tonight, as you now must surely do we'll all know.How many carrots in an oz? or potatoes come to that? Born too late, sorry to say.

I have not yet found a way of calming it down if you overdo the chilli.If you get it right it's best served with crusty bread. If you get it wrong it's best served with your favourite indigestion remedy.

Thank you so much for sharing it - I will copy and paste, then give it a whirl. :o) Thu 18 Feb 2010 17:56:09 GMT+1 RxKaren http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/02/the_beach_145.shtml?page=92#comment325 2 tbsp oil1 large onion (finely chopped)2 garlic cloves (crushed)1/2 tsp chilli powder (1 tsp if you're using mild chilli)2 peppers (seeded and finely chopped)8 oz carrots (finely diced)8 oz potatoes (finely diced)3 celery sticks (sliced)1 1/2 pints vegetable stock6 tbsp crunchy peanut buttertin sweetcorn (original note says 4 oz but I use a standard tin)1. Heat oil in a large pan & cook the onion and garlic for about 3 minutes. Add the chilli powder and cook for another minute.2. Add the peppers, carrots, potatoes and celery. Stir well and cook for about 4 minutes stirring occasionally.3. Add the vegetable stock, then the peanut butter and sweetcorn. Stir until it's all combined.4. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until all the vegetables are tender. Serve.My scribbled notes also say something about adding salt and pepper although I've never bothered. Also make sure you don't muddle up chilli powder with extra hot chilli powder. That's from bitter experience. I always make some if I feel that I'm coming down with a cold. I'm sure it's only a placebo effect but I always feel better for it. Oh, and serve it to the family and close friends first - it looks a bit odd.

Bread comes from supermarkets, it is purchased in sealed poly bags, it is white, it is sliced, each slice is of a uniform square shape, each slice is of a uniform thickness, each slice will easily fit into an electric toaster and the crusts at each end of the loaf will be of equal proportions.So none of this home made namby pandy stuff for me. I know which side of toast is buttered!

There are a couple of interesting clips on Google showing catheters being inserted in both male and female dummys.As you know, my wife was a nurse and dealt with female problems, so I've heard it all.

I came to with Looter holding my....hand.

Having someone (Be warned, not necessarily a male!) shove a catheter through your, er, um, doo dah and an enlarged prostate can be a bit of an experience, though. Aaaaand, if you are in the Duton and Lunstable Hospitable, Looter might invade.

Apparently its the cause of my verbal diarrhea****He, the quack, says there's got to be enough space in there for him to yodel in the canyon.(sic)**** My mum was always in appalling pain when I was a kid. One day we went round to see her v. Scots friend (60 a day Kensitas)'Well quite franky, my dear' I heard her friend say confidentially to my mother, as I tuned in and out of their conversation 'the woman has verbal diarrhea'Aged 5, I thought it must be a very severe form of the usual sort of stomach incontinence.I suggested the diagnosis to my dad the very next day because my poor mum was in tears of pain, him driven to high distraction. It had to be something very serious indeed that ailed her. She was probably suffering from it too, I thought, like my mother's friend's friend.I flew from one end of our long hall way to the other, like a shuttlecock off my father's boot.
