Re: POLITICS CORNER

It's debatable whether we shall ever get back to the old style of Parliament with all those people confined together. What we need is a new fit for purpose chamber built in the middle of the country. You know my plan for the Victorian Pile to turn it into a money maker. A design that won't allow th...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I doubt they will ever do the vaccines at Barlick as it's not really a suitable venue. Another reason why we actually need a proper Health Centre in Barlick.

Re: Seen in the News

I wouldn't fancy anyone's chances of getting to a safe area if they broke down in lane 4!" Even so, safer to risk getting off the road completely. Away from the guided missiles doing over 70mph. And that's the problem. When the smart motorways were first proposed there were supposed to be safe refu...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Exactly Kev, you cant call the last 12 months straightforward. Kids have been left at all kinds of levels depending on how parents have been able to cope and in many cases due to the social and economic standing of individual families. Let assessments and gradings stand for the Sixth Formers. Promot...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Been thinking about the education sector and the amount of schooling the kids have missed, (one way or the other). A reasonable way out would be to revert to a previous practice and just hold each year group back one year. I.E keep all the schools shut until summer then have them all do the year aga...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Got the results of my recent poo stick bowel screening and I am OK. The letter tells me that they will send me another kit in two years time unless I have reached the age of 75. So that's another 4 goes for me I reckon. Folk who are already 75 years of age are not automatically screened but can requ...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Problem is Maz, our government can't seem to organise the proverbial in a brewery so they have no chance with a technological solution. You forget these are Bullingdon Boys that we have to put up with. That's not just a political pop for the sake of it either.

Re: Seen in the News

If you are on a 'smart motorway' and are stopped get off the road and as far away as possible. I wouldn't fancy anyone's chances of getting to a safe area if they broke down in lane 4! Even the double barriers in the central reservation are being replaced with concrete walls. The biggest problem is...

Re: Seen in the News

I have been saying this for years. It's not rocket science to appreciate that if you break down in a live lane with no refuge available and there is no automatic monitoring of the traffic flow, it is not likely to end well. Quite a few folk have died since the introduction. Still driving but I doubt...

Re: Blood Donors

I'll have a look and see if that will slot in at 12 weeks for me as well. I was thinking, are the permanent city centre sites drop in centres or do you need to book? There is one in Leeds just down from the Headrow which would be OK for me when I have my scan but unfortunately they would bounce me i...

Re: Blood Donors

I received an email the other day from NHSBT on the same issue. It suggested booking the city donor centres as lower footfall in general has impacted the number of donors through the centres.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Sir Patrick Vallance says that the new strain of the virus is more deadly, as much as 30% more to men over 60. Deep Joy!. To put this into a better understood context. That means that for a thousand people in that age group, the risk has gone from 10 people dying to between 12 and 13 deaths per tho...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

We got a ham hock from the butcher and cooked it overnight on Thursday in the slow cooker. Pan of Pea & Ham soup created for tea with dumplings. Took two portions down for Jack and Jemma along with on of my Chia & Sunflower seed loaves. We have serving each left over for lunch. Rest of the ham has g...

My lad who works in the education IT support sector when he is not infected with Covid says they are Geobooks. He does not hold them in high regard as far as decent kit goes.

Re: Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

Thanks, one of the best recipes I have found Maz. It produces a wetter dough and has minimal kneading done in short stages. Less then a minute in total. Doesn't seem to inhibit the gluten development and the crumb produced is soft and reasonably long lasting. It's one of Nigella's that I have tweake...

Flushed with my previous success of soaking the Chia seeds as part of the liquid content when mixing my dough. I thought I would try another variant with my next loaf. I soaked the Chia seeds in the larger portion of water as defined by the recipe. The liquid content is made up of 125ml of milk, 150...
