Flashheart: Couldn't resist it, eh, Slack Bladder? Told you you thought I was great. All right men, let's do-oo-oo it! The first thing to remember is: always treat your kite . . .

[Flashheart taps the picture of the Sopwith Camel with his stick.]

Flashheart: . . . like you treat your woman!

[Flashheart whips the air with his cane.]

George: How, how do you mean, Sir? Do you mean, do you mean take her home at weekends to meet your mother?

Flashheart: No, I mean get inside her five times a day and take her to heaven and back.

Women are like gum boots - you only put them on when you are going to get dirty.

NO - you are just being silly now.

In my part of the world, Wellington boots are made out of cow leather and horse-hide and are tough as nails. I have owned a pair of leather Wellingtons for over 32 years and they fit like a pair of old comfortable slippers and are still in good working order. They were custom made for my feet and have an unusual zipper in them in order for my cloven hooves - er, make that "my arthritic ankles," can fit into them. All that is needed for maintenance is a little linseed oil or lanolin and the occasional new soles and heels. So in order to differentiate between you silly people who believe you can make "real" boots out of rubber, I will call them gum boots so these less sturdy boots will not be confused with real leather boots.

I do believe you have heard this expression before and are just being obstreperous. Typical woman. Floor Tile, Hurumph!

OK, I am going to rescue this from obscurity. Another post will put it to the top of the list.


Did anyone see the potato?

Have you been to Korea?

What would you do with $10,000? (Or £6811.10? GB at the current rate, 0239 GMT)

Choose one or all.

(No Karen, You may not have my couch. And it is not a print - it is a weave, not a print. You would be surprised at what machines can do these days.)

If I had $10,000 I would buy a whole lot of Korean potatoes and serve them with custard, followed by poached pears in a rich beef gravy.

Ingredients
570ml/1 pint milk
55ml/2fl oz single cream
1 vanilla pod or tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs, yolks only
30g/1oz caster sugar
2 level tsp cornflour



Method
1. Bring the milk, cream and vanilla pod to simmering point slowly over a low heat.
2. Remove the vanilla pod (wash the vanilla pod, dry and store in jar with caster sugar to make vanilla sugar).
3. Whisk the yolks, sugar and cornflour together in a bowl until well blended.
4. Pour the hot milk and cream on to the eggs and sugar, whisking all the time with a balloon whisk.
5. Return to the pan, (add vanilla extract if using) and over a low heat gently stir with a wooden spatula until thickened.
6. Pour the custard into a jug and serve at once.
7. To keep hot, stand the jug in a pan of hot water and cover the top with cling film to prevent skin forming.

I thought General Custard was killed at the Battle of Little Big Horn River in Montana.

How can you have a little big horn?

it's either a big horn
or its a little horn


It can't be both at the same time.

Anyway, I don't think that was General Custard, wasn't it General Hospital and Major Roadworks, not forgeting, of course, Private Parts.

Castor sugar is fine granulated sugar, being much finer than ordinary granulated sugar it dissolves quicker and easier.

Most rodents live in spaces that are from the ground down.
