Re: Winemaking!

I hope your plum brandy is nicer than the plum brandy from Eastern Europe. Slivovitz is rank. My son in law is from rural Bulgaria, and home made wine and rakia (which I gather is a sort of fruit spirit) is normal. It's not bad, but terribly strong. Interestingly, when I serve the plum brandy, peop...

Re: One of those days

I loved this. what did you do with him in the end? Did he eventually get dressed and leave? When is your book going to be published, BYM? You must have enough material for a best seller that would enable you to retire and spend all your time birdwatching! Maybe BYM is saving all the stories up, and...

Re: Winemaking!

Oh, Goodo! Shame we can't taste it. I used to make cherry brandy in a similar manner to your plum brandy. Worked very well - might try again. Yes, I've done cherry too, but cherries are pretty expensive, whereas the plums are free! I'm not much of a drinker so wouldn't really be able to compare, bu...

Have to say - the plum wine is a resounding success! [emoji39][emoji39][emoji39]

Re: Horror Movies

I've never seen Steptoe & Son. I know it's classed as "classic" now, but somehow I've never come across it. Or that other one... the one with David Jason. Can't remember the name of it, but it's also regarded as a classic.

Re: Horror Movies

The humour I've never understood was Monthy python! I remember sitting in the cinema with my sister and brother when "The Holy Grail" was on, and everyone was laughing and I was looking around thinking "What? What's so funny?" Yet, I think John Cleese is hilarious!

Re: Full Membership renewals

Thanks for reminder, Marigold. I was thinking just the other day that it must be time to contribute again, but wasn't sure how. Just paid now.

Re: Horror Movies

Confession: The pirates of the Caribbean was scary to me. All those dead pirate fighters getting up and walking around. And Davy Jones (?) and his army of drowned people! Lord of the Rings is another one I only made it part way through! I'd read the books way back in the 70s/early 80s. But I couldn'...

Re: Horror Movies

Can't do even mild horror movies, Hen Gen. Many ( many! ) years ago, I went to see one called "The Entity" with a friend. It was about a woman who was being attacked regularly by an invisible being of some kind often while she was showering. We laughed and sniggered our way through the movie. Until ...

I saw that! It's been shared around. Cheeky little thing, but good for her!
