    Post Brexit food standards,,,

    Wrong. The vote was Leave 52%, Remain 48%, which means the vote was to remain. It's called democracy. I explained all this in a post several months ago, but the censor didn't like it and removed it.

    Post Brexit food standards,,,

    It seems to me, An Ankoù, that the whole point is that we did NOT vote for it. The 2016 referendum result has been totally misinterpreted, presumably by those who see their own (career) advantage lying in twisting it into giving them a cause célèbre. The 2016 referendum produced a vote to...

    Lidl Red Grape Juice for winemaking

    What do you do with the bramble tips, Hedgerow? I've never made anything with bramble leaves other than tea. If you have a decent recipe for wine would you tell, please, - and what is it like? Thanks.

    Elderberry wine

    Yes, it's even the same with the opposite sex.

    Elderberry wine

    Totally true. Nevertheless, years ago my mother used to make a superb rose petal wine from the petals of three (maybe 4 or 5, I can't remember) identical bushes in her garden. The flowers were a good strong red and richly scented, and I never got over the odd sensation of lifting a glass of...

    Elderberry wine

    I usually make black and elder. Has anyone else noticed (or commented) that although wild blackberries are much smaller than cultivated ones, they have a much better, stronger, richer taste? It seems to me that cultivated blackberries have been developed for size and appearance only, and...

    Buzz words.

    I suppose it is. They probably kill many morer.

    Buzz words.

    I'm always surprised by the number of people, especially news-readers, politicians and interviewees, who talk about "new-killer weapons". Perhaps they are right.

    Buzz words.

    What about us long-tailed then? Bloody discrimination, that is.

    What are you drinking tonight.

    Hi Stephen, That recipe is extremely interesting. Thanks. A question about the tea: have you experimented with different types of tea, and if so what has been the result? Rather than just a "Tetley or Typhoo" type of experimenting, I'm thinking more of "Assam or Pu'er" type of experimenting...

    Tonight's election programming

    This seems to be based on the way they used to try women accused of witchcraft. The Titanic is approaching an iceberg. A minority of the crew and passengers want emergency action to turn the ship regardless of the fact that this might spill a few gin-and-tonics; the majority do not want to...

    I explained this in a post several months ago. CTea decided that he did not like it, and removed it.

    Tonight's election programming

    Cancelling Brexit was not unpopular. No-one with an IQ which reaches double figures and with an understanding of the world and the crisis which Homo sapiens has pushed our planetary biosphere into could possibly be in favour of the UK separating from the EU unless it were for purely selfish...

    LARGER OR LAGER

    Thanks for that explanation. Now I know why most of the UK population, with the notable exception of we East Lancastrians who have emigrated to Cornwall, don't speak proper English.

    LARGER OR LAGER

    Then, of course, if you went into a pub and only wanted a half of the rival company's beer, you could ask for a small larger larger lager. If even that was too much and you just wanted a taste, maybe you could ask for a smaller larger larger lager.

    LARGER OR LAGER

    Isn't lager called lager because it was left in store to age for a while, in a lager - which is the German for warehouse; i.e. it was/is lager-beer, meaning beer stored in a warehouse. Thus if it was a big warehouse one could have larger lager beer. If a rival company then made an even bigger...

    so who gets gout..

    Maybe I got it the wrong way round. Perhaps gout causes sex.
