It's the final countdown
Saturday is moving day, so we have now reached the point of adding the word 'last' to the things we do around the house. January 1 saw the last dinner date at Glenelg Way, an experience we shared with our McMinns. We ate Beef Obsession with bread rolls. Thi...

Oh, dear. Is that the time?
On May 29 of this year, I posted that I'd be using this site to record recipes. And then, on May 30, despite my better judgment, I went back to Facebook. You know what happened next. So, here I am on December 23, getting ready to record my year in review an...
