Those are excellent ideas too El,
well worth remembering, and thanks,
re your not 'going near the place' comment
I agree with you 100%, these bugs are smart enough
in seeking us out, we certainly don't have 'to put ourselves'
in their path!!!!
Re your other #19016 above,
THANKS for that El..appreciated.
There's a new series - just started here,
called LOVE/HATE its home brew 100%[Irish]
it depicts the sub-culture here and how they live,
crime, drugs, drive by shootings etc.
Kind of > an aspect of life in 21 century.
Though [obviously] very violent,
it is extraordinarily well done,
I heard rumor that the BBC are after it..
will let you know in time.
With this wishing all a happy Wednesday.
Good morning Grace. I hope you are having a wonderful day :)

<quoted text>LOL No problem El. Part is a thing like and Fanny is your Aunt. Americans don't have a clue what that means. The phrase you don't know sh** from Shinola is a phrase used here
I'm glad about that Denny, seriously,'cos I felt like
Mary Whitehouse yesterday! Is that right about the phrase,
thought it rang a bell somehow. We live and learn.

Good morning/afternoon to all!
Today will be busy. We will be preparing Thanksgiving dinner for "pub orphans". People who have no where else to dine.
We were blessed with a donation of a 15 pound turkey to prepare. This is our 4th year providing dinner for pub goers without families. It is all free and anyone can come in and dine.
Enjoy all. And may all your blessings bring good fortune to you and yours.

No problem Grace, if it can be avoided, then all to the
good. Especially when you know you are susceptible
yourself.
I hope the BBC do get hold of LOVE/HATE, be glad if you
did give me a heads up should that happen.

Keep meaning to mention, the BBC has had bad press recently,
so, to their credit, last week they aired 'Children In Need'
and raised £26 million in 7 hours. Not bad at all.

Sorting things out yesterday in my old study Grace, I came
across a programme from when I went to see Freddie Starr.
I just cannot believe the allegations....not Freddie!
I expect it is because we don't want to believe such about
people we once admired. Freddie always had me in stitches,
and he was a very talented impressionist, still, innocent until
proven otherwise.

Time for a cuppa, your name is on the pot! I am so ready,
have had anaother busy day in spite of intending to rest today.
Off out tomorrow, YEY!

Good evening El, Grace, Boomer, Denny, Tony, DW, Lovely Lady, NM, RM, and the other fine folks in El's Kitchen. It's been a beautiful day from the start today, alas if it could only hold like this until next Spring, lol.
At home doing some cooking, for tomorrow and tonight's, dinner. Hope everyone is well.

I'm HUGE fan of the BBC, BTW.

I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing that at top level, the referee's performance is reviewed and decisions made about his (or her) suitability to ref more games at that level. Problem in the UK is that even the top referees are not paid much - in most cases it is not thier full-time job, so suspension won't achieve a great deal.
I wonder ... it's extra pay, there is prestige to be a ref, and isn't there some personal pride in there somewhere?

I imagine that referees can make way more by fixing matches.

Hi Boomer...I appreciate what you are saying, it's a complicated issue all round.
Best to leave well alone as there is always the exception to the rule.
Over here, we tend to joke about ourselves in the following manner...'there was an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman....'
now the funny thing, I can't think of any time I saw a 'Welshman' included in the scenario.
Discrimination?
j/k
but 'tis strange.
Have a good day and a very Happy Thanksgiving is wished for you.
now THAT was funny!!!

The White Party http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Party#se... in South Beach Miami Beach was also the unofficial place for LGBT whose family disowned them to go for Thanksgiving weekend. In addition to the fundraising it's become a huge event which other cities have copied.

Kudos & more power to you Boomer for bringing some warmth and sense of 'family' for folks who have no one to be with.

Good Morning Boomer,
Every admiration for what you do on Thanksgiving...you must
really make all the difference in the world to those 'pub
orphans'.
With every good wish for a wonderful day for you and yours and
all who are lucky enough to share your day.

'Morning Tony...cutting in, bursting to tell you, well,
my brother and I had our weekly 'phone chat last night, football came into the conversation, I am reeling with shock, lol, first
of all my brother the lifelong Man U 'fan' prefers Rugby, not
only that, he admires the dignity of the players toward the Ref,
thinks the football players behaviour is out of order, illustrating his point by pointing out recent activity by Galatasari (sp) in attacking the Referee,(didn't watch the match, no longer have Sky Sports). Apparently (he pointed out) it is permissable for the Captain of the team to approach the Ref should there be a query regarding any call.....
I mean, I had to agree with him put like that!
I must say, and not backtracking, it must be extremely intimidating for the Ref to be surrounded by angry players.
Still say that with so many linesmen (assistant referees) plus the referee himself, that they should up their ante, it can affect the whole game after all.
Weather is awful today, gales and rain, worse down South I imagine with the floods.

Hi ER ( and of course, all others who visit this good establishment)- I stopped reffing soccer when the antics got too much: limited myself to Ladies soccer and rugby, didn't need the aggro.

Blowing like a hooligan down here and the rain is just starting again - more flooding is forecast and severe gale for tonight. Fortunately, although we overlook the river, we are well above the flood plain, so it's not a problem for us. At least later tomorrow and Saturday are looking better. I'm off to Fowey for the weekend as it's she-who-must-be-obeyed's birthday and her last weekend before going off to run a chalet in St Anton for five months.

Good Thursday morning/afternoon to the klatche of Kitchen-eers with our shirties and cappies of distinction:

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to the colonists and the immigrants and the minorities who were an essential factor in building this big, diverse country -- the U.S.A.

Thank you Cuz El for hosting the spirit of celebration in which we dearly delve.

Boomer -- praise be and good on you for "being there" for folks on this day.

For the dear Auld Sod folks -- batten down if you must and ride out the gales from the seas, take the day as it brings, and peaceful gratitude for all things.

El,

Thanks for your previous post..
I will be delighted to leave that poem here -
the one you requested about the Doll! LOL

I think I penned it one Christmas,
in the form of 'A Child's Letter to Santa'

Hoping you are having a wonderful day -

wonder have you any knowledge of the
present big controversy that's flying here at the
moment about >

http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2...

It's all over the place and so serious
it could well bring down our Government..

India's Ambassador is calling for a public
inquiry!

It's all happening!

Meantime, and apart from that.. it's speeding into Christmas!!!
