Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I just looked to see where the word Hopscotch came from. It used to be called Scotch Hopper, scotches being the marks on the ground and nothing to do with Scotland where the game is called Peevers.

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Salmon steaks fried in butter, asparagus and purple sprouting broccoli (from the garden ....must be my most favourite vegetable, delicious, full of goodness, easy to grow and cropping now when nothing else is.)

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

I don't know who did it Plaques but I know it's a long way from Madonnas and Michelangelo! Looks like Victorian sentimentality to me and not good enough for Rodin. Noted that it's a young child and nets are involved so a drowning?

Sorry if you took it the wrong way Wendy, it was meant to be funny, not political. If we don't joke about Brexit we'll let it defeat us. :smile:

I disagree with Stanley's dates and would put it almost 400 years later to the late 1800's.

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

As you have mentioned before, individuals react in different ways. The tomato thing is just Col's experience. He reacts strongly to my home grown tomatoes which I find incredibly annoying!!
This is a good guide:

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Chef spiralised some swede to have with Bolognese sauce the other night. I was a bit apprehensive but it tasted good! Loads of garlic and herbs in our tomato sauces. 😉 He is planning a baking session this afternoon so pizza tonight. Watch out for tomatoes raising your blood sugar too Maz. Tinned one...

Re: READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

I wasnt expecting you to buy a hardbook at full price Tripps, it was just the simplest description of the book that i could find ...my copy was a cheap paperback. He has a gentle and self deprecating sense of humour .... not humourless at all!! :smile:

Re: READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

I'm not a fan of poetry but I do like Simon Armitage, I enjoyed his "Walking Home" about a journey along the Pennine Way, it's worth a read.
