    Hi Sausages, you won't remember me, as I stopped posting here under another name ages ago.
    But we did both chat and compare notes about knitting..

    I had a rough time when posting in TB so,opted out.
    You were always very pleasant to me. So all the very best to you.

    I recently posted in the more practical threads and gained a great deal of lovely advice.

    Have you thought of peets etc.. I wasn't going to but might..
    Anyway, all the very best to you and yours... 
    Hi Firesprite,

    Thanks for such a nice response, and I too wish you well. Posting on message boards can be a rough old business, good fun most of the time but thick skins are required sometimes. You were wise to opt out if it became too nasty, I know other people that have too.

    I am unlikely to use private message boards much, if at all, as I have had 'interesting' experiences in the past with the moderation, but that's a personal thing, and I hope others enjoy whatever they chose to do.

    All the best to you and yours as well

    Good evening all. Back home from the meeting and caught up. The meeting went well, although we had seen the DVD before - about six years ago when it was a video - so I spent some time on the lapdog catching up on paperwork.

    Sausages, good to see you again, even under such circumstances.

    Olivecat, very well done there by OH. You must really be looking forward to half term.

    SFA, how disturbing for your neighbour, and well said by Oberon.

    La Bez, that sounded like a good and properly inclusive service there.

    Are five bananas too many in one day? Don't do this very often, well, not with bananas. I'm afraid I am very greedy with fruit. If I start on a bunch of grapes or a punnet of strawberries - I usually finish them in one go. No problem with getting my five a day....

    Celeriac soup - I am a fan. This week I put apples in a la Angela Hartnet - bit sweet for my taste. I used the eating apples I had, would be better with cookers. I like her recipes but find you really have to have an idea what youre doing. EG in this recipe she listed Thyme - but there is no mentionin the instructions when to put it in. Not for beginers.

    Away to google bananas.....

    Thyme - but there is no mentionin the instructions when to put it in. Not for beginers. 

    Rule of thumb. "Hard" Herbs Thyme, Rosemary, Sage may be garden Mint go in at the beginning.

    "Soft" Herbs eg Parsley, Corriander, Basil, at the end. You won't go far wrong.

    Try adding some acidity eg lemon juice to the soup instead of sharp apple. It does need acidity.

    We once had the coup of having the achshal cartoonist who drew Gnasher and Dennis the Menace at our school Summer fair, as he lived fairly locally, he gave us a cartoon for us to auction, and spent the afternoon sketching for anyone who wanted one.

    So, ner...

    At last!

    Work has been shockingly busy today, so I've spent the evening with the lapdog trying to catch up with myself, and I've only just managed a quick ML catch - up now.

    Huge hugs and pebbles to Pecan! So much better to get the discussion going about TB and TVH, rather than the silly stuff that goes on in DTA.

    Pan, I am green! We got the Beano from when I was about 8 until long after I left home - my father was an even bigger fan than my brother and I! I have been trying to get Eldest interested so I'll have an excuse to pick up a copy from time to time, but he hasn't quite 'got' comics yet, although he loves to read Tintin with me. Mostly laziness on his part, I think - he never wants to read things by himself, though his skills are very good. He hasnt' quite understood it's a lot funnier to read it to yourself.

    Have now forgotten everything else...

    At last, time for bed.

    I think the sweetness is why Olivekitten laps it up. I didn't bother with the thyme, mainly because we haven't got any.

    I haven't noticed the Beano for ages, is it still printed I wonder.....

    Pan, I've googled and I know one shouldn't believe everything one reads on the internet, but, apparently one has to eat between 30 and 50 bananas per day for it to be a potential danger.

    There are folk claiming to eat a whole lot more than that and surviving. I like the fruit but........

    Anyhoo, thanks for raising the subject.

    Away to drink tea - now caffeine od might be a possibility - and read my book before midnight.

    I used to buy the Dandy and the Beano for my boys - it's sad there are no 'proper' comics left - they all seem to be TV tie ins or something now.

    Can't remember how I discovered the cartoonist was local - well, actually it may have been an article about him in the county magazine, come to think of it, so I wrote via D C Thomson, and he came, willingly and for nowt.

    Good egg!

    My boys also love Tin Tin and Asterix (they learnt lots of history that way too).

    S'pose I ought to get to bed too

    Good rule of thumb, SFA. I only had dried rosemary so chucked it in just before the simmering stage. Never thought about adding lemon juice - always have lemons in the house - have some soup left, might squeeze some in tomorrow. Experiments r us.
