You sound like he man who was advised to walk 5 miles a day for his health, and at the end of the week was 35 miles from home.

Before criticizing a man, walk a mile in his shoes. Then when you do criticize him, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes.

Peter, do you have a book of those sayings somewhere?

I know it's almost possible to do justice to a Rainbow by photographing one, but an hour or so ago I chanced on an absolute beaut- complete hoop as well. Didn't find a pot of gold though.....

The problem with that theory Peter, is you might find the chap right behind wearing your shoes.

I went to Brooklands as usual with a couple of friends, not as many cars as last year as the weather kept a lot of people away but pure nostalgia for me as an ex British Aircraft apprentice. Despite the immense amount of work that the volunteers have undertaken to restore various aspects of the site , it always always saddens me to see to the way that the airfield has declined into a glorified retail park but that's another story...

Based on experience from the Ace Café that must be black pudding and bubble and squeak.

It's OK for you. My wife has a Home Baking business and although we sold all the mince pies, there's still loads of shortbread, fudge, Florentines and savoury biscuits to wade through. (Well, we can't throw them away can we?)

Sounds like a double edged sword to me! You're right though, can't waste the goodies. And you've reminded me- I've got some mincers in a cupboard somewhere as well.....
