  2. That's looking much better! I had a (ONE) hornet sting about 10 years ago and it was pure agony. Several must have been a nightmare.

  3. The pig - all of it - is the mainstay of the Christmas dinner with ham being top of the list. The various parts are turned into several dishes: cheeks & trotters (brawn), ribs (glazed and roasted), shoulder (smoked), belly (salted & smoked) guts (sausage skin), just about everything else (sausage). The pigs head is, today, purely decorative but an essential part of the festivities. Artificial ones come in all sorts of materials and sizes. They are decorated yearly and the icing removed before being stored for the following year. I think the tradition is dying out. None of the children use them. You can buy all the dishes ready made but we always do our own ham, ribs and sausage.

  4. It's probably just as well!! It's really only Iceland where it's eaten and it's not your everyday plain cooking.

  6. I got to know Fred Todd at Bedlington High School in the early 80's. He was teaching Technical Drawimg, metalwork and Motor Vehicle Studies. I am friends with him now. He is now 86 and still going strong. Really nice guy.

  10. A few months ago,I asked if anyone had any further information about a letter written by John Stoker about Bedlington Terriers in 1878. Anyway,I have been trying to learn more about John Stoker,and I found the following newspaper cuttings which may perhaps be of some interest,as they describe life in a very different way to the present. John Stoker buried two wives at an early age,probably through childbirth (??),suffered a serious accident at work,was almost drowned while trying to deliver the Mail (he was also the postman) - his horse was drowned but he survived and - most importantly,of course - he managed to save the Mail !! He was later given 'a purse of gold' by grateful villagers for his diligence as a postman. And,despite all these trials and tribulations,he maintained 'an obliging manner' without recourse to Counselling! How different to today!

  15. Lilbill15, I had residents on that estate who asked me to see what could be done. Ive now ( I presume) got residents on another estate who have asked the same. Common denominators................wonky roundabout and pressure on road systems. One of the things I have asked for was the 30MPH extended up to the village and I have asked for some speed reduction suggestions on that bit of road too. There are traffic and highways questions asked and answered with just about every application I have sat on. Can't say I agree with most of their reports and usually I end up stating the bleeding obvious to most people, as in the above meeting!

  16. My OH has just said I should mention my 'Mediterranean olives'. Add crushed garlic and mediterranean herbs to your fiiling. Instead of carrots in the sauce add chopped tomatoes and more garlic. A dash of tomato puré can be added to give a bit more colour.
