Re: Men v women. Women v men

Eeeee...I am not sure 'Woman's Hour' would get a look in here either ( is this on for an hour a day or an hour a week? ). It may be a great programme, but I find the title slightly off putting...smacks of 'patting the little woman on the head', which has never sat well with me. And as for 'push-up b...

Re: Where have you all gone to?

Interesting that you draw the comparison of a pair of comfortable slippers, Panny, because I bought a pair of slippers last month ( and I thought they looked a bit funny when I bought them) but it turns out the right one has a twisted sole. I notice I am constantly having to adjust it, and have deci...

I too have donated to the old site, but will not be donating to the new site. And ( personal opinion) I think it is wrong to tout for donations whilst running paid advertising. I accept that a lot of you have the opposite opinion. So I am voting with my feet...going on sabbatical from OG...will chec...

Re: We all Love A Moan, What Annoyed You Today...

Annoyed with the advertising banner. ( Doc, how can you ask for donations to OG when you have taken on paid advertising?) My screen looks more like a fruit machine at a casino. I am afraid 'lights are going out' at this end. I am not spending my Internet money looking at ads for goods and services. ...

Speaking of litter, it was bin day today, so bins went out last night. A street full of bins of course. And some bright spark had to go and dump a bin bag full of household rubbish under a tree alongside my neighbours side fence. All those bins to choose from...but nooooooo...let's just dump it unde...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

BB - the carrots stayed purple during cooking. They were the colour of tinned beetroot. Water went the same colour...I could have dyed the Royal Robes. They are kind of 'horsey' looking carrots...more like purple parsnips to look at. I have enough for another meal during the week. I wonder when thes...

Tasmanian Salmon tonight. Poached...no garlic! I bought some purple carrots on the weekend. ( purple through and through...why I thought they would be orange inside...I dont know).

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Yes...I would be happy with that rule of thumb, Whyperion.( if you want to add to Atlantic Salmon, I think you can't beat a white sauce with lemon zest, black pepper, a touch of tarragon and a touch of dill, and a little parsley.) Though I wouldn't mess with the veg. I like the natural taste of veg....
