Thinking of you today dear Boomer...you won't feel a thing, really,
so glad you recovered so well, it could have been so much worse.
I have to say, your recipe you mention sounds very very tasty, don't worry about any conversions, I have a chart up on the fridge, have to admit not familiar with habanero, but can do a search.
All the best today then...please let us know how you go on.
Best to BE....<3
Hey EL ... how have you recovered from your own mishap a litlte while back? Are you 100% by now?

How's it going Franko...I heard you was starting a new business, wanted to add my good wishes to those of Flower and wish you well with your new venture.
Thanks EL ... keep your fingers crossed. It will be a few months before I can really tell how it's going, but seeing as I have worked in the industry for many years I am sure I will do well .. oherwise why try, right?

Good to hear it was't as bad as originally thought, did I hear
them say he will only miss two matches, or be back in two weeks,
good news anyway.

Good day Lady El and all. Betty Crocker had written a cookbook here in the USA. She is a fictional character, unlike Julia Child. Her recipes were famous here. When someone mentions that someone is acting like her, they are talking about baking with a passion!
I don't know the UK equivalent. See, there is that whole language thing again! LOL!
On the lighter side, here is a question that I used to ask my elementary students in the library.
We all know that, "April showers bring May flowers. What do May flowers bring?"
Wait for it...
One more.
Are you ready?
What do Mayflowers bring? Pilgrims!
Corny? Yes! Funny? You decide.
Enjoy the day folks.
Peace.
Good name for a fictional character associated with food..
Here we have Mary Berry, she seems to have taken the limelight
off Nigella Lawson...:)
Good one about May Flowers....in fact, Brilliant I would call it!..:)
Peace.

How kind of you to ask Franko. I didn't realize at the time, ridiculous though that may seem, but I dislocated my right knee.
Considering that fact, I am fortunate that it hasn't stopped me in my tracks, I can't afford for that to happen. As it is still numb, I will be off to the docs next week, he is going to be cross as I by-passed him by going to the cottage hospital on the Sunday...:(

From what I can gather, you have given it a great deal of thought, have the experience behind you and further, dealing with products which are daily necessities....it's in the bag!....:) Always quite
exciting to try something new, good luck with it anyhow.

<quoted text>what if both shows had the same format? would people tune in to the second (newer) show or would they stick with the one they know (and have already developed a liking for?)
SO of course each show has its own format .... to set themselves apart and give viewers something different to get their attentnion.
Typical spring .. 3 days rain, one day sun ...then repeat.
Thanks for reply on this subject, Franko..

I really think it's the case of
one-up-man-ship! lol
one trying to outdo the other by presenting
a new format.. on an old idea..
but .. whether one like it or not ..
and indeed..
there's 'for' and 'against'
SIMON COWELL was blessed with a touch of genius..

to have started
something that grabbed ... and continues to grab
the public's attention 100%

Your dear daughter has the right idea about these shows!

El,
My eyes opened wide when I read this..
are you SURE you dislocated your knee???

as,
when I dislocated my shoulder after a fall
last summer [I wrote about it here at the time]

I was in absolute agony that would take your breath
away.. I could neither stand or sit or walk or talk!

I remember when friends brought to to 'emergency'
they had to hold me up, going in,
as I was inclined to faint with the intensity
of that pain

They gave me a strong injection..in A&E..
and finally manipulated it into place,
I was in a sling for 3 months..
and had sessions of phisio after.

Unless a knee dislocation is different ..

but I imagine it 'should be' too painful
even to move or walk...

I dono' but am very curious.

In any case,
glad you are having your knee seen to now..

better late that ever..
as the saying goes.

'Morning Denny...although late afternoon as you know over
here, just winding up doing some jobs in the garden, the
weather is glorious finally. I remember this time last year
the weather in your part of the world was 91F. I only remember
that, as I had to trawl back through a thread to find an important
date! 91 in Spring seems unreal to us.

Happy Saturday Vee....and can honestly say I believe Spring is on the way at last over here, although nights are in the minus bracket, it's the days that count and it has been gorgeous today.
All well here and of course, thoughts of your and your sister has
been at the forefront in recent times.

Grace...I was sorry to hear that you suffered to that extent
when you dislocated your shoulder, it must have been agonizing
for you, am only relived to hear you had such good care. Do
you have any problems with it now or has it healed completely?

As for my knee...I am sure you will recall my saying I do not do hospitals at the time you mentioned accompanying a friend..well, I don't do doctor's either, there is no way I am going to sit for hours on end in a waiting room where there is no ventilation as is the case at the surgery I am registered with, surrounded by people with all the ills of the day. It's as simple as that.
My knee was the least of my worried when I had the fall, but I happen to have a large number (as you know) of cats for whom cook, and am a care-giver out of necessity, so what do you do?
I had same reservations about my toe when I went to the cottage hospital three days after my fall, I was told they do not have x-ray facilities when I 'phoned to make an appt., and so put myself in the hands of the Sister, whose opinion was my toe was not broken. Good enough.
Since then, as my knee is still bruised, swollen and numb, I have put two and two together and possibly made five, and self-diagnosed a dislocation...:)

We don't all have such wonderful neighbours Grace. When I mentioned what had happened to a neighbour two weeks after the event, she fell about laughing at the thought of a broken toe!
My nearest and dearest neighbour's contribution was to ask me to go for a walk!!!!! And not one to back down, I went! Call me bloody minded, lol.

'some' reservations.

also I forgot to mention we have a measles epidemic here in Wales, so I tend to keep away
from places it could be rife.

P.S. I also forgot to mention that due to wrongful medication prescribed for me over a long period of time, I almost died, and
later attempted to sue the medical profession for their negligence.

Thankyou.

El I watched a great old movie. The Battle of Britain. About 1975 my wife was in the hotel business and that is where she met her friend we come over to visit. She flew with British Caledonia. I had the pleasure of drinking with the senior pilots who were the young men who stop Germany cold in the sky over England.
