  • I currently live on the top of a hill. I find this rather comforting because in years not-so-long gone by my family lived for generations in an ancient cob & thatch cottage which we loved with all our hearts but which was disastrously flooded in the 90’s. it was always damp anyway as we lived at the bottom of a coomb basin. Add to that the fact that our neighbour/farmer was running the show solo due to both his family being elderly and having no siblings, it was more than he could cope with and so situations conspired.

  • Being French

    Now as a musician and ametuer cook this probably isn't my place to comment on this issue but it has been bugging me for ages and no one, as yet, has commented so i feel i must...

    "French Mustard", (and yes i wrote the Wikipedia entry because no-one else did) Which is a darker-brown, mild, sweet and tangy mustard is in fact, not French at all. Also not to be confused with French's mustard either; 'French' mustard is particular to the UK and was invented by Colman's in 1936. Probably as a milder version to their 'English Mustard'.

     
  • We has such a wonderful afternoon at the Bude "Cream of Cornwall & Devon" concert i can't tell ee! I only wished we'd come up with a less clunky title!

    Good day, good day fellow creatives! I am pleased to inform you that this new year begins with much excitement; i have formed a duo with a gentleman who is a most talented musician and we met during my sabbatical in Cornwall back in 2012. I can't confirm whether the feeling was mutual but i was particularly taken with his fabulous guitar playing and embracive vocal style. I assume he must have liked the noise i made as he expressed interest in meeting-up again.
