    Looked into the Joanna Southcott thing a few years ago. Can't remember the details now, didn't they open the box and find a packet of wine gums or something?

    PS Just had a look at Wikipedia, was lottery ticket and a horse pistol, not a packet of wine gums. If that was not the real box, they need to find the real one, they certainly need to open it soon to save us all from... everything.

    The only other thing that may save us is King Arthur. If Germy Carbuncle is the next PM, somebody up North please go to Alderley Edge and give him a shout.

    They claim they still have the original unopened box, which they keep under tight security in a secret location, probably in Bedford: History | The Panacea Museum

    ^^^It's always a plus to find that there are people about who make me look relatively sane.

    It's a bit of a panacea.



    Tea this evening was the poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons pumpkin seed toast.

    Followed by an individual Xmas pud with custard as a special treat.

    Rounded off with 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    It was all most acceptable.

    Once I've done the dishes and had a shower then it'll be time for more BTVS and Angel.

    Only two and a bit seasons of BTVS to go now.

    And she doesn't get out of S5 alive.

    Which makes the start of S6 inneresting in several ways.

    that'll put marzipan in your pie plate bingo.

    It also crossed what little remains of my mind that I forgot to make a rice pudding today which might explain the excess of milk in the fridge.

    It's Xmas pud season!

    I do like a bit of pudding and custard.

    Must stock up.

    Proper Sunday dinner today, just for a change: roast lamb, with the usual bits. Lovely, it was

    I need to decide whether to use the leftovers to make Scotch broth or have another roast dinner with them later in the week; or possibly some third, as yet unthought of, alternative

    Carrots & onions?

    So that's BTVS S5 E18 & 19, Angel S2 E18 & 19.

    Now watching some thing on BBC4 about the worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin.

    I suspect the only thing of hers that I've read is

    The Left Hand of Darkness - Wikipedia

    I don't remember it making much of an impression, not being space opera.

    And this programme isn't so that's the end of that.
