    Rosie, Hurrah for your head feeling fine.
    Smiling is good for you, keeps you young-looking so research tells us ......................... I need to do much more smiling then.


    Tips, it looks like some certificate thingy is fubarred so them fancy emoticons I bin usin' no longer work! That's wot the piccy should have beed, 's' not my fault this time.

    P.S. - I like chicken fajitas too.
    But I'm feeling energetic so here it will be battered chicken sweet & sour. Followed by (wanna guess?) yup, strawberries.
    Aldi's are still yummy.


    I wonder if Stafford is enjoyin' Sleazy?


    And I wonder if Fruity remembered the bulbs?

    We had problems medical wise here with my Uncle/FiL, so I ended up going to see R Mar on my oddy-knock and my Lovely stayed home to wait for the nurse. She then did the light shopping on her own. She remembered the blubs but alas got the wrong voltage so I need to go and exchange them.



    No, I have never done jerry service. I wouldn't have minded a few weeks off to do it when I was working, but not now.
    I'm sure I would have analysed all the evidence given in a fair and impartial manner, just like I have done here.

    LUN, is it the local mushstools that make you delirious?

    I'm sure Stafford is being kind to our Mr Sleazy; I just hope they have a withering heights to keep him fed and watered.

    I quite like fajitas, but I'm also quite partial to quesadillas if you can manage a few next time.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    Well 'flyin visit to Stafford over and trainy has succesfuwy brought me back to Toonville.
    Brexited in Wuthering whilst away, and treated meself to a full veggie including strangled eggs. My pretty has now forced some fizzy white stuff down me gullet, and I be ready to snore.

    Fruity - them bulbs look more loike onions to me!

    Jerry Servis? I were summonsed once, but on account of where I was workin' was ecsused. Probably thought I new all the crinimals personally whereas I only newed about 30 to be dishonest.

    Misty - will say no to the hay-heaters if yer don't mind, cos I don't appreciate eating aminal cadaveries.

    Well, gonna roll into bed now-a-bouts, so C U all laterer.

    Fruity, oi bin puzzled; wossa "quesadilla"?
    Izzit a beastie like an armadillo?
    Like wot Tips posted a while ago?


    No?
    Okay, I will try breakin' it down:
    In Spanish, "que" = "what", right?
    I remember Manuel in Fawlty Towers!
    And "sadilla" = "the deal".
    So a quesadilla is a "what's the deal"?
    Which is I suppose quite appropriate for what amounts to a Spanish vershun of pizza.


    Nice to see you returned safely Sleazy.
    Sleep well & see you laterers, all being well.






    Hah, I found anuvver bunch o' emoji fingy's wot works!

    A quesadilla is more of a filled pancake, or wrap, than a pizza. I took a liking to them when I was working in the colonies of norf americal.

    They are most deffo blubs, not yun-yuns. They would make you ick if you eated thems.

    Hello folks, my pretty woked I a whiles back, otherwize would still be in land of nod. Very tyred now after me exhaustations earlier this day, but must report that objevtives were accomplished and far too much food were eaten and liquids taken as appropriate. Now I be doin' me duties in said kitchen in order for more browny points to be added to me account.
    Fruity, thanks fer the warnin' bout the blurbs. Does they run 110 or 220? Only askin' on account of time spent and habits possibly gained in North Ameriky.

    Misty - if my geografikality be correct, Dutch were more over East Indies way.

    LUNi - Nice Army-Dillon . But I likes the spud best still.

    Has Rosie croaked yet? Reckon Spud is tryin' to say " ...was Rosie ...".

    Whull, the EU standard vlotage, including the UK, is 230, so as long as they have a CE mark they should work OK by here.
    I suspect if you shoved 230v up a norf merkin blub er would blow er filly-ment. If you dun it the other way round, yer blub would be a bit dim.

    I have had them with added stuff (pulled pork cooked underground in honey and wrapped in bananana leaves was my favourite in the Yucatan) but always with cheese.

    Bu@@er!
    I've had me dindins but the thought of these .............

    Fruity I thought you needed to eat Dutch bulbs if you needed a certain kind of courage.

    Has Sleazy gone????

    LUN tomorrow I have brewed some strong coffee and have some Mascarpone cheese - what am I making? Nice change from strawberries, but still needs a dollop of thick cream.

    Fruity, had this experiwunce myself in December on a ship in Norway last Decembre. I bought a mini heater element from the interweb so that I could make a hot drink in me cabin loike. Course when I plugs it in, it starts-a-smokin' and-a-glowin' red hot loike. Blooming Amerik-Anis.

    Misty - course I still here - where's me kesa-dillons?

    LUNi - Foight the foight, and keep drinkin'


    Thought I saw our Rosie
    A sittin' on a wall.
    Then saw that it were Humpty,
    Afore he had 'is fall.

    See, it were all to do with the pies

    Never mind merkin vlotage problems, we used to get allsorts of problems with different units. Degrees Rankine. What the eff is that? It's absolute Fahrenheit. I ain't used vurrinheight since 1965 when our schoolz went metric. How on earf do you suspect me to unnerstand absolute obsolete?

    I didnae know that about the origins of queso. The ones I had certainment contained cheese, but always had other things in them as well.
