Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

When I was working as a blood sister, it was commonplace for insurance companies to request HIV tests....for both Life Insurance and Income Protection Insurance. ( personally, I think it is wrong).

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Eyelets...
Or part of a 'popper', such as a stud on clothing, though you need 3 other bits and a tool if it were a clothing stud (used to use them a lot on kid's clothes when my son was small)
So I would say it is an eyelet such as can be attached to canvas etc.

Re: Autumn 2012

A few days of cooler weather for us and it is MUCH appreciated. Feel human again. Still in shorts an Tshirts, but at least we aren't melting.
Have you had snow?

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Can recommend the same recipe with the addition of one small chopped brown onion, a slug of HP Sauce and a sprinkle of ground chilli. The flavours just keep going on and on in your mouth. Having it tonight on some Red Salmon Cakes.
Bellisimo.

Gosh...well done Wendy...not something we have to worry about living in the city...getting in bales!
( though I would love to build a straw bale house and that does seem an excellent price).

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I am willing to try the onion one. Might do it tomorrow and will let you know how it goes. Nothing nicer than caramelised onions.

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Am upping that verdict to "Trrrrific"
Just shared a cheese sandwich with Febby, laced with the mixture now that it is cold. The mint really adds to it.
Thoroughly enjoyable.
( we will have to wait and see if it plays havoc with Febby's heartburn). :grin:

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Have just finished making your recipe, Stanley. It is currently cooling. Have sampled it and it is nice ( so has Febby). It has a lovely flavour, and the kitchen smells nice too. I am wondering if a little finely sliced onion, and even a little dash of HP Sauce would add to the flavour? What do you ...

Willing to give that recipe a go Stanley. Not keen on Mint Sauce, but will follow it faithfully. What do you do with it when cool...blitz it, squash it with a fork and mash it...or leave it chunky? And how long would it keep ( a question I dread to ask, because I am sure you will tell me you keep it...

That is quite a list. I can recommend 4 and 5. Patting dolphins is also fun. No real bucket list for me, just a deep desire to live as simply, quietly and as uncluttered as possible,with few humans around me. Most of all, I desire my physical and mental health to remain strong for as long as I need ...

Complete opposite here, Stanley.
Hot, hot hot! Has been for the last week ( mid to high 30's) and heading for 40 on Thursday.
7pm...I have just been out watering the garden and boy is it horrid out there, with still another hour plus until sunset.
Feel like a good rub down with a cold wet face washer!
