Some Christmas lights could have looked nice on those trees.
I was light poor this year. Been putting off replacing everything with LED but the cost was too much this year. So I was left with the remnants of what was once a nice compliment of holiday lighting. All but one of the multi color strings had issues (I once had enough to do the entire house and most of the trees), and there was only a few single color strings of blue, purple, green and a half dozen red. I barely patched together enough red only strings to do the tree. Several had been left on some trees a bit too long one season and the sun bleached the color to pink, and clear on some.

Next year though, things are gonna change.

There. Fixed another one, but the bill is in the mail now ...


Rupert had remarks about that attitude to life.


Please go learn his didactic intent and abide by it.

went to a brand new aldi

wide aisles and cases upon cases of blinking owls


Just last week there was an alleged murder of a shop assistant in an Aldi over here. The alleged perpetrator has been caught and made an initial appearance in court. Pretty miserable occurrence. Unlike many other similar events I have heard of, the news stories did not talk of a pre-existing, fraught relationship of the parties.

There may well be some obscure law here to that effect, there are many, just to enable the silks of Shirley's ilk to be able to catch out good, well-meaning citizens.

The Boxing Day Test, a the MCG: late on the first day Australia 3/228. A bit slow scoring but then there is all the Christmas dinner for the players to get over.


England yet to score.


Geoffrey Boycott sounding not very happy.


All is well in the world. At least for now.

Of course I've been inserting B52's in between all the meals made with good, wholesome ingredients. I even had a B52 in my morning coffee.

I think I had 3 morning coffees today.

Then there is the Christmas candy . . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . . . . I've been a bad boy.
I bought a dozen oysters each from the local oyster farm on Saturday. None left by Christmas Day. Oops.They are best eaten fresh
Christmas day breakfast was smashed avocado on toast with sliced roast turkey and lettuce. A normal weekday breakfast. Dinner was roast chook, done in the Weber Q, with bread sauce, butternut pumpkin and potatoes. The temperature probe is the only way to go. We had plum pudding lined up for desert, but we were too full to eat it and put it off until today.

I filled up with petrol on Saturday and bought some fresh corn cobs at the same time. We had those for dinner today along with the plum pudding and cream. Real cream. Not that thickened, artificial stuff that's more like a failed chemistry experiment. I'm full again. That might have had something to do with snacking on paté in the afternoon. I should have gone to the oyster farm and got another couple of dozen fresh oysters. Eh. I can do that tomorrow.

Regards,
Richard.

Poor you, I only do that with 50 pounds of wood twice a day from the shed 100 yards away through 2 feet of snow.
In bare feet and up-hill both ways?

It was really cold here on Christmas Day. Beach parties were mostly cancelled. Overnight minimum was 21C and max daytime was 22 or 23. It was almost tracksuit weather.

Regards,
Richard.

I opined that I was so old I remembered when pbr was 75 cents a pitcher (which is the only reason we drank it) and coors actually had flavor

one of the other foods mentioned here led me to several hours of googling nutraloaf and its cousins

I had never considered that direction (maksalaatikko) for liver
it reads sweet not savory

but lingonberry does make everything better

as to the addition of catsup/ketchup to foods...consider the secret ingredient in many recipes is tomato paste or sauce

[ please forgive me, I cannot resist ]

well the area of the world I am from -

we know about I Q but what is Weber Q

we have pumpkins and acorn squash,

the former usually used for decoration and/or makings of a pie and the latter is baked and consumed

some filled up with gas after the big meal and

corn cobs were fed to farm animals or burnt for heat

[ I hope you have a safe and happy new year ]
