Well, it wasn't pretty and it wasn't even a particularly good game of rugby, but given the conditions, that is understandable. The right result, now we need to sort the Froggies at Twickenham in two weeks' time.
As long as you won it doesn't need to be pretty :)

Folks you're talking about don't even drive the minimum speed limit.
You have no idea how good people drive in the UK.No one gets in the fast lane and slows traffic down. They drive so much better than we do

Only on some roads!! The A38 from Exeter to Plymouth can be a real pain with people sitting in the fast lane (it's only two lane) and doing less than 70mph.

Spare a thought for Trevor Grills, one of the group Fisherman's Friend from Port Isaac, Cornwall (for our US friends, it is the village in which Doc Martin is filmed). There was a dreadful accident in Guildford yesterday when a huge steel door fell on both him and the tour manager who was killed. Trevor is in critical condition in hospital:

A nicer bunch of lads you couldn't hope to meet - they have not become big-headed with their success and still sing regularly for free in the village on a Friday night, in between major tours and gigs.
That's dreadful news Tony, so sorry to hear of this happening.
Commiserations to the tour manager's family and will certainly
keep Trevor in my thoughts. The group must be devasted, indeed
the whole community.

Indeed they are. All the members are villagers and the majority were full-time fishermen before their success. It was a real fairy tale - a scout from a record company heard them singing in the village on a Friday which is what they've done since the late 80s and within a month, they had a £1 million record deal.

Nice of you say Denny. Incidentally there is no such thing as
a 'fast lane', as the blanket speed is 70 mph on the motorways
the two outer lanes are overtaking lanes and the inner lane is regarded as a slow lane due to coaches and HGV's having a
'ceiling' of 60 mph.
60 max on a duel carriageway.

Good group..very enterprising of them. Similar to the quarrymen
here who sing in choirs, many have gone on to achieve great success. Really is most unfortunate that these gents had such an accident...this is a crucial time I expect for Trevor.

Hi Lady Eleanor...
Thank you for your condolences... I know they are heartfelt and they are very much appreciated.. 2012 was a real hard year on this ol' gals heart.. I still find myself breaking down from time to time... A word a glance at a picture or simply the thought of it all knocks me down.. but as always I get back up and just keep on going counting the blessings I am given each day...
We got lucky concerning the snow if you want to call it luck when it's been raining...
;o)
I told Flower.. I'm gonna go down to Texas and chuck her a good one in the arm..hahahahaha
I guess we were just a bit too warm for it to become snow here in the valley... Honestly I do prefer snow over rain though... It's not near the mess... The Chi-Kids aren't fond of snow but Josie Wails LOVES IT!
It's really good to see you back in the kitchen as you have been missed.. I hope that this was a great day for you and that you had fun no matter what you had to do...
Sending you all of my best wishes and a bunch of love...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---
'Morning Dear Rose...only natural to break down....it's no time at all. You know me enough to know that although I perhaps do not
'go to town' with my feelings here, I care very much, nevertheless. The curse of being British....we are not sufficiently outgoing I'm afraid.
I think it takes losing those dear to us, to appreciate what we ourselves have, however little, be it worldly goods, health, whatever, it is so easy to take it all for granted when everything has been rosy along the way.
Have a wonderful day filled with everything you wish for others...:) Love...Elx

You got Boomer Lady El.....he is now wishing he was there to enjoy the cheesecake. As we would say here..he is drooling!!! LOL I would love to have the recipe if you would like to share?
Lots of love to you.
I can promise had Boomer been here, Brighteyes, he would have
had the Lion's Share of the cheesecake...:) If I say so myself, it really is very moreish.

Terribly simple recipe...

3oz unsalted butter melted in a pan.
Add approx 8 crushed Digestive biscuits and stir until
butter absorbed.
Press this mix into the base of a losse bottomed baking tin.

Put 400g or 14 oz of Philly cream cheese into a mixing bowl
and beat. I used 160g of Philly chocolate cream chesse and
the remainder regular Plilly cream cheese.
Beat this until smooth and creamy...then add two eggs, beat until
merely blended. Do not overbeat at this stage. Gently stir in any added liqueur of choice if wished.
Pour on top of the base of biscuits.

Into the oven it goes for 50 minutes on 325F or until the centre has set.

Once cooled add fruit decoration I decorated with mandarin oranges.

Enjoy!

Refrigerate for three hours before eating.

(6oz) instead of the biscuit base if you so wish.

How time flies, coming up Tea Time already....

Twinings and hot buttered crumpets order of the day.

Snow looks imminent, time to feed the pets and
settle down for the evening...

Liverpool FC will be playing later so that is unmissable.

Logging out.....see you tomorrow hopefully.

A few replies to attend to..

Firstly TONY,
referring to #22935..
Genuinely sorry to hear such news...
we will MOST CERTAINLY 'spare a thought'

**********

El and FRANKO,

Thank you BOTH *very sincerely* for you posts and references to
my friend who is ill,
she is being made as comfortable as possible,
in the circumstances..

I went to see her yesterday,

I took a bus, choosing NOT to drive in the city..
easier in every way to do that by bus/tram.

When I left the hosp, with the image of my
very dear friend's
failing presence .. eerily stamped on my mind,

it made me
think;

I didn't mind ONE BIT having to wait in the cold for 2 buses home,
hugging the gift of my health tightly around me.

proves EVERYTHING IS relative!

***

El,

With regard to yesterday's match !!!

I heard them say on radio today
'the less said - the better' LOL

but..
Congrats to ENGLAND who, being fair, well deserved the win.

FC,

Glad you are steadily recovering..
be good to yourself these days.

SO sorry for the loss of Vee's dog..

Hi Franko ... thanks for the good luck wishes ... 2 wks and 5 days out of sx and things are getting much better thank goodness ... Hope all is well on the home/work front for you as well ... here are the rules as we know them and if I left something out maybe Rose Bud can correct me as I typed them off the top of my head on the tips of my fingers without proofreading because my caregiver was here talking to me and my multi-tasking is not up to par as of this writing, lol ... so here goes:

0-zero is a wild card which can be used n a couple of 2 ways ...

0132 ---> a straight 1234
0212 ---> 3 2's and an ace high ( the 1 is an ace and the extra card is doubled since you've got 3 2's with the 0 being the wild card ...
7705 ---> 3 7's over 2 5's gives you a full house ... you take the 3 7's and double the 5 giving you a full house ... ALSO ...

1117 ... you CAN make it 3 of a kind BUT in actuality ... it IS 3 aces' over 7's ... that is the rule we made ... sometimes even I forget that rule ...

1111 ... 4 of a kind, best hand ...
4440 ... 4 of a kind, best hand ... of couse, 4 aces beat anything ...

examples of a straight ...

1234
5768
4065 just remember to scramble the numbers to read the straights ... and remember the 0's are wild ...
0857
and so on ...

2656 ... your pair of 7's got me so I fold like an ironing board, lol ...

Enjoy your evening! FC <3 ...
