I'm sorry your cat died pixie. I think every pet owner knows exactly how you're feeling. I still remember the massive hole in our lives that the death of our previous dog left. God knows how I'll feel when our current pet dies

Oh poor Pixie! I feel for you. I remember when I had to have my beloved Saul slept away, it hurt so bad. We were together for 10 wonderful years and I still miss him.

Just downloaded it to my kindle and it has some good recipes at first glance although quite a few I won't use too!
Delia's Cake book comes out on kindle at the end of the month, I find it handy to have the odd cook book on my ipad if I'm away for a few days

I haven't checked the book out yet and I don't think I will. It's strange that I find that there is something unappealing to me about Mary Berry books

I can't quite put my finger on it. I mean I like her on the GBBO and her other TV appearances

When I saw all those reruns of "Cash in the Attic" and "Bargain Hunt" and redecorating/house buying shows on BBC afternoons, I did wonder where all the money was going. Considering that not everyone who has a TV watches the Beeb...there are other channels, which even though some might not care for what they offer, it means the BBC doesn't actually have a monopoly on the public.

Posted on 28 Feb 2014 13:55:02 GMT
There is probably a good reason why so many people refuse to pay the licence fee:

when they pay their executives hundreds of thousands of pounds
when they pay newsreaders and chat show hosts and Match of the Day pundits hundreds of thousands and even millions of pounds
when they produce TV that is aimed purely at chasing ratings which is something the BBC should not concern themselves with.
when they send 100s of people to cover news events when Sky News/ITV send far fewer

They waste so much money it's not even funny. The sooner the licence fee is abolished the better. I could live with BBC shows having adverts if it didn't mean they had to be more prudent with their money

I hear that the head of the BBC says only about 56% of Brits actually pay the licence fee...so they're going to raise it. I'm sure that will make all the skyvers pay up...

They don't seem to realise that many, many non-UK Europeans would gladly pay a yearly fee to have access to the Beeb's programming. Now that's a real money-spinner!

I love the fact that even when they're doing a "cheffy" show like that first round of Best of British when they had "cookoffs" with famous chefs (ie adverts for expensive restaurants *eyeroll*) they make it fun. I'm glad they got over the little heaps of stuff and caramel cages quickly, though!!

I loved the granny cooking away in a kitchen smaller than a garden shed. I did wonder what happened if the older son needed the toilet during the night. Surely he would have to stand on her to get out of bed

I know that shows have been done before on Asian food but the Hairy Biker's seem able to make TV that you can enjoy even if you have no interest in food whatsoever.

Maybe they'll put it out on DVD when the series is over.

It was good Ori...I like the interaction. The look on some of the peoples faces as they cook! Mint!

Good news HC for your DH. We don't have a laptop but DH is still checking ways and means and stuff. Can't quite afford to go out and get a laptop but who knows how this will shake out.
Some of the responses on some of the "what's going on" websites are sarky in the extreme. UK expats are being told "It was never intended that you have access to the BBC". For well-to-do British retirees who have paid taxes and licence fees all their working lives, that must go down rather well I'm sure...

A quick up date for Ori. Been watching TV through the computer, works really well. Lost Channel 4 and ITV yesterday on the TV but can get it on the computer. It will depend on the age of your computer and TV. I've got windows 7, and the TV is about four years old. All I do is use an HMDI cable to connect the computer to the TV. Then I go to the 'filmon' website, find the programme I want and then press the 'source' button on the TV until the picture appears. If you have an older TV/computer you can use a different set of cables. I just 'googled' both the TV and computer to find out what ports are on them and went out and bought the cable.

PS. H is home from hospital, foot healing well.

I have a retired neighbour who sat on his butt for the first five years and then his wife volunteered him to teach elderly people basic computer skills , just to get him out the house which he now absolutely loves doing now.

She says he gets real satisfaction when he shows them how to keep in contact with distant family and friends through Skype and email and also online shopping which comes in useful when they have no transport.

He spends about twelve hours a week doing it and he always gets phone call from people with problems. She says he's now got more pride in himself and a purpose to life.

He doesn't have to be an expert just know the very basics. It's surprising how many people don't how to send emails and other simple things which we take for granted.

He does, after a fashion, why??
