I used to cycle too before I got the dogs. Then it seemed like a waste od energy when I should be walking them. I have seen cyclists with their dogs on leads running beside them - did try once - never again!

martin obrien -

Thanks for the welcome! And I'm staying busy in UK Amazon's Politics forum, mainly on the subject that got me "banned" in the US Amazon discussions. Hard to keep the Truth "banned" for too long!

Well Martin it would appear that there's not much that people want to get off their chests. I have to admit I'm not a great complainer either so might I add things that make me smile instead?
I love it when people use the wrong words. I don't want to seem as though I am criticising, Heaven knows I've done it myself (with spelling too) but sometimes verbal crock ups can be so funny.
I had some decking laid in the garden and when I asked the joiner how I should protect the wood he said, "Ah don't worry pet, this wood's tantalised!"

Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

My next door neighbour has just knocked at my door. Can you believe it? At two in the morning?!!
Lucky I was still up playing my bagpipes.

I'm on a diet so that I can get into my little black dress at Christmas. It's not so tough watching what I eat but it's really, really tough watching what other people eat.

Handybird says:
Oh well, if I'm going to make a success of this diet I'm just going to have to use mind over platter.

Job applications on the internet. Country of birth. No England so let's try GB. No. Scroll down, there it is - United Kingdom. Nationality? OK. A British passport means I'm British.

So my diet has been going really well.
I went out with friends to this really posh French restaurant and they ordered Escargots a la Bourguignonne.
I had to leave, I just prefer fast food.

Saturday - I was going to go swimming, a little exercise might be good for my figure?
But you know, I thought about it and whales swim all day, everyday and it doesn't do anything for theirs.

Handybird says:
Okay then, a week into my diet and I've lost five pounds.
I'm really gutted because I was going to buy a kebab with that tonight.

So, I went round to a friend's house today, she'd invited me to stay for Sunday lunch. She knows I'm on a diet and was busy telling me all the things I should be eating, you know, like vegetables, salad, lean meat et cetera, et cetera ... and so I asked her if there was anything that I shouldn't be eating.
Her reply?
"Nothing fatty."
Well really! As you can imagine I just left and slammed the door behind me. I didn't go there to be insulted!

How about roasted Cheetah, now that's what I call fast food!

So yeah, I read that counting calories can help in the fight against flab so I thought to myself - why not? I can do that.
I had my breakfast, elevenses and lunch and it was all going swimmingly.
Then come mid afternoon I was on to my sixth Krispy Kreme doughnut when lo and behold - what happens? I only go and lose count don't I?
Not to worry, I just started again.

At work today and a colleague asks me whether I'd ever considered going on a seafood diet.
I just had to laugh! I've been on that since I was teenager.
I see food - I eat it.

Handybird says:
So, you'll be pleased to hear that I tried my little black dress on this morning before going to work and it fits like a glove!
The only trouble is I had hoped it might cover a little more than my hand.

HI Handybird - a recipe for you - may sound revolting but delicious - black pudding and banana - 2 slices of black pudding 1 banana - slice the banana - long ways and cut each in half. Put the black pudding onto a plate suitable for the microwave and cook for one minute then put 2 pieces of banana on one slice of black pudding put the other slice of black pudding on top of that then the other two bits of banana - put back in microwave for one minute leave for a minute then eat - wonderful.

Ah that's very kind of you to consider my dietary requirements and yes, that recipe does indeed sound very interesting. But I'm afraid, in a bid to reduce my 'convenience food' intake, I removed the innards from my microwave oven and am using it as a fish tank for my pet, Goldie.
Would that recipe work equally well in a pressure cooker do you think?
Oh and do you think it would be better topped with custard or gravy?
