    ME 109 was the aircraft model and you could have put that. Doesn't account for the filter not liking the German ending of Messer though!

    Now that you call Oakdene, Aubergine (was a joke between Mme. and myself on our answering machine once), will have to think of a 'suitable ' nickname for yerself I think ...

    I don't want a nickname! I like Pyxis!
    It's bad enough when people call me Pyx. But I don't say anything. I just suffer in silence.

    You could always give these a telephone call, and when they answer say "Chocs Away?". If you called at 0959, you could also say "Bandits at 10 'o' clock", whereupon Alfie and I could walk through the door dressed as Bonnie and Clyde ....



    Just a thought.

    As I am a girl, though, is there a feminine version of petit pois? Petite poise, peut-être?

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this thoughtful
    & most glorious of days!







    WEAR A WAISTCOAT WEDNESDAY

    Cheer England on in style and give blood cancer the red card!

    Get involved

    Show your support for Gareth Southgate and the boys ahead of
    Wednesday's semi-final showdown – and help give blood cancer
    the boot!



    In honour of the England boss' new-found football fashionista
    status, we're inviting supporters to grab a waistcoat (or print one -
    in England colours of course!) and button up to beat blood cancer.

    Taking part is simple: proudly display our poster to encourage
    everyone to don their favourite armless attire, make a donation
    towards life-changing blood cancer research and get ready to
    celebrate as the Three Lions sail through to the finals!

    A Special Day to Raise Awareness of Population Issues

    On July 11th every year is an event known as World Population
    Day. You may not have heard of such a day before but it has been
    celebrated for almost three decades. The aim of this day is to
    focus the world’s attention on the importance of population issues.
    The Governing Council of the United Nations Development
    Programme recommended its introduction in 1989. Inspiration for
    this special day comes from the interest that was raised by “Five
    Billion Day” on 11th July, 1987. This was the day when the world’s
    population reached 5 billion. “Family Planning is a Human Right”,
    will be the focus of the 2018 celebration.

    Why Family Planning Has Been Chosen

    2018 marks the 50th anniversary of a conference that focused on
    family planning. In 1968, the International Conference on Human
    Rights was held. For the first time ever, family planning was
    affirmed to be a human right. The Tehran Proclamation, adopted
    during the conference, states that it is a basic right of parents to
    be able to decide on the number and spacing of their children.

    Millions of women, globally, are still not given access to safe and
    effective family planning methods. Which is why it has been
    chosen as the focus for 2018. A basic human right is to be able to
    get safe and effective family planning. It should also be a
    voluntary choice. Gender equality and women’s empowerment
    depend on it. Further more, it is a key factor in reducing poverty.

    Food (chicken wings / Turkey Papuilettes) in oven for the boss. I'm having Mushroom Mince in a spicy sauce and Tarka Daal. Both of us have Carrot, Swede and Potato mash. Wine for both, pear cider for boss and obligatory crisps for the match which I have sampled already ..... Phew! That was more of a mouthful to say than to eat!

    Poisette, I have a request of you .... If, at some point you wish to call me by a vegetsble's name, would you refer to me by the French name for Cassava please?
