    proper using a 'made to measure' Kraken granny knot.

    That sucker won't be troubling anyone else for quite some
    time.

    Calories today.
    Went out for a meal with wife this evening (I had fish & chips, and no it was not to the chippy! ).
    Anyway, that was about 1000 plus other stuff today, offset by walking 11000 steps.

    Got these (reduced) from Sainsbob's earlier:



    Will try them over the weekend perhaps.

    It's ok Sleazy, all these puns are just a flush in the pan!

    Can't let them go to waste, now, can we?

    It's all Alfie's fault for taking the plunger and falling down the loo!








    Anyway, concentrating on the other end for a moment, , I tried my homemade mushroom mince, and it worked really well!

    It's a very good substitute for meat mince, I think! I fried it for a bit, then added some leftover cooked stir-fry veg I'd made for lunch, and it was nice!

    I used a mixture of shiitake (shiitake! ) and white mushrooms. The multichop worked well, but not on whole mushrooms. I had to roughly slice them first, but then they chopped down finely enough to look like mince!

    I was well-impressed.
    That'll be a regular on my menu from now on!

    And no, I won't start a bout of fun guy jokes!

    “There She Blows!” Flatulence in Old English

    My innards have been a bit off lately, which has made me wonder
    about the Old English terms for ‘flatulence.’ And so I have put
    together a very short-winded post on my findings. The OE
    equivalent of our ‘flatulence, gas, wind’ then was simply the
    common word for ‘wind,’ to wit, wind, the corresponding adjective
    being windig ‘windy.’ To disambiguate, one could also use the
    phrase wambe wind lit. ‘wind of the belly,’ or windig wamb lit.
    ‘windy belly,’ >>>> [See more]

    I did keep trying them, just in case they would grow on me, but they didn't.

    Mind you, as you know, I've had no success with finding quorn or soya meat substitutes, apart from the Cauldron Indian Falafels, which I did quite like, but you do like them, so you might have better luck with the Shroomdogs.

    I think I'll pass.








    There are some very funny (and stupid) tries at that on YouTube!
    "Fire down below!"


    Don't n't try it kids......... this might happen.......


    "Oh, but don't go for the matches just yet. About a quarter of the fart igniters get burned in the process. There is no way to stress how little anyone likes to get burned in that area. Worse, the ignition of the released fart can ignite gasses higher up the intestinal tract, and sometimes, high in the intestinal tract, there will be swallowed oxygen. Oxygen is swallowed daily, but generally doesn't make it out of the body because it is so readily absorbed into cells.

    Oxygen is also likely to ignite explosively if heated, and this has happened during surgical procedures carried out in the intestinal area !!!8211; though there is no record of it happening when someone tried to ignite their farts. Still, it's a bad idea to take even the most remote chance on an internal Hindenburg. Just let this knowledge seep into your mind, and keep your downstairs area well clear of it."



    Internal Hindenburg!

    Bonjour mes amis.
    Not a 'Good' morning exactly.
    Couldn't sleep and got up early to the news that the promised Syrian attack has started.
    Going to Stafford today to take care of some 'stuff' which might all be pointless if a bigger conflict kicks off.
    Have a good day all, and be back here "apres la guerre"

    And yes this is a duplicate of my 'Good Morning' thread post.
    I can't think of much else to say at the moment - probably why my night was disturbed.
    Don't feel happy so probably good that I have a busy morning planned.

    Has anybody heard from Suki? Been missing from here for a few days.

    See you mes Alphabetois ...

    Do you have connections with Syria?

    Not direct connections with Syria, I was born here - My late father was from the Balkans and came here in the aftermath of WW2. My wife is from the Balkans too, came here when we married years ago and now views here as home! .

    BBC News in the middle of the night seemed worse than it does now.
