  1. Resurecting a Fruit Cake

    Only one bottle, I soak my fruit in one bottle and then inject another litre into the cake, I do provide a eat and drive disclaimer
  2. Remembrance Day

    Here in France there were services held in most small villages, an invitation is sent out by post from the local Maire. Ours was very poignant as one gentleman's father lost his life along with two brothers and they are named on the war memorial in our village, when I got home I worked out the man must be over 100. on another note about memorials, there is a memorial along side the road about 3 miles from me, on it are four names and the date of 15th August 1944, the four men were resistance and the local priest gave them up to the Germans who chased them for about 6miles and captured them and hanged all four in the woods, needless to say the priest did not see the year out and was shot by locals, but every year on 15th August a service and a parade take place.

  11. Old Sewing Machine

    Sadly the wood is too far gone and damaged with woodworm, the guy selling admitted it worked when he got it but he mislaid some items mainly the cylindrical/bullet shaped bobbin. OH has suggested he could replace the wooden top and maybe use it as a table for the television.

  13. Old Sewing Machine

    Thought Valkyrie and Plum may be interested to see my bargain purchase, apparently it is in full working order
  14. Charging for entrance to cathedrals

    I was always taught that Churches, cathedrals etc were a place of sanctuary and therefore anyone and everyone was welcomed, whether rich or poor, black or white and whichever religion. I feel that they should be free with the option to make a donation of you want.
  15. Snake in coop - dead chicken

    Daphne, it is a western whip snake they are quite harmless unless provoked when they will bite but not poisonous, apparently feels a bit like a bee sting.
