Poetry Thursday 323 -
Why is it that everything comes back to the meaning of life or the journey on our personal timeline? The Glorious Twelfth The
glorious twelfth a season’s opening, where
the rich and idle exercise rights, to
shoot and kill for their amusing, the

Tuesday Food Blog - Shepherd's Pie
There was an article on a TV magazine show about society losing traditional skills in cooking. In my naivety I thought they were referring to English cooking but was obviously wrong when they showed the audience how to make pasta from scratch!!!! This is En...

Poetry Thursday 322 - Buttalowie
As a fully paid up member of the Mackem fraternity the insect commonly referred to as a butterfly is and always has been described by the above name. I have produced a phonetic rendition of the sound. Buttalowie The

Tuesday Food Blog - Lasagne al Forno
A good old standard comfort food! Would I have been able to say that 40 years ago? It may be a little time consuming but the end result is tasty to say the least Italian meat sauce This meat sauce can be used with any form of pasta. Simply it is minced beef...

Poetry Thursday 321 - No blood red moon
As I proceed through my 69th year, that is, 69 next birthday, I am beginning to be aware of the gulf between the level of language that I use and that of those under the age of 30 in particular. It is almost a different form of communication. Many young peo...

Tuesday Food Blog - Stir fry and pasta salad
The salad days continue unabated. The grass is brown, reservoirs are draining fast and old people, like me, are warned to avoid the heat and sun. Interesting logistical problem avoiding the heat. My apartment is a case in point. A few years ago it was check...

Poetry Thursday 319 - Root and branch
I am a political animal and affronted daily by the media's bias in favour of the losing 'remain' vote of the referendum of two years ago. In my opinion the EU has become an enormous, unwieldy club for the fat cats and billionaires of the region. More and mo...

Tuesday Food Blog - Waiter there's an ***
I've been hunting variations again and was partly driven by the need not to have to stand cooking for a long period of time. I finally decided on that good old Jewish stand-by Cholent but then began looking for variations. Cholent + foreign body Now here's ...
