    dinner has been steak pie <pukka> with beans <heinz, baked>
    and Rioja <spanish, very nice>
    all in all, rather splendid.

    and now 'Lewis' for not only do the BBC trot out ancient kick it and run, but also ancient talent free shows like eurovision.
    FFS. and they make ME pay for this 'service'

    I don't post stuff about meals because my cooking is such a disaster. Managed to cock up a baked potato tonight by putting far too much black pepper on it. They should appoint me as a TV chef, there would be a big reduction in obesity!

    pie - 25 minutes on a baking tray in a 200C oven
    beans - decanted from the tin and nuked for 90secs at 800W.
    Rioja - opened and poured.
    absolutely NO culinary skills involved, old boy.

    I am generally inept in the kitchen too. That's why I found myself a chap who can cook

    It certainly is - they were really busy with delivery orders, so much so that they apologised for not having time to talk

    Very nice as always

    On impulse, I got myself a pineapple fritter with syrup, which I haven’t had in many, many years - probably the first time I’ve had one this millennium. It turned out to be two of them and was very tasty, though I’m not that fussed about them and probably won’t bother again for ages

    Entertainment (continued): Following on from what the Victorians did for us, was "Civilisation" E10 "The smile of Reason" which waffled on about Voltaire & all those French gits, then leapt across the Atlantic to waffle on about Thomas Jefferson, covering much of the same ground as Alistair Cooke did in his rather more inneresting series.

    To round it all off: "The Best of Frankie Howerd" half of which I'd watched in the "Up Pompeii" dvds, though it was amusing enough.

    Required FF to avoid some of it, namely Noel Edmonds and all his works.

    Oddly enough, the two copies of that dvd are sat on top of a pile right next to me.

    I might get a round tuit sometime soon.

    They've only been sat there for 3 months.
