The wife spotted this in a window today so we bought it: -



Problem is, it doesn't fit with any of our rosewood and beech-stained pear wood stuff.

Sod it, it's too good not to make room for. Acacia wood from India. And best of all, less than a hunner quid.
Far's at fae min? Exactly what I'm needing for beside my reading recliner.

Stonehaven. The other side of the river on the same side of the road as the Carron chipper. Some magic stuff in there, cheap as chips.

That piece hasn't got a home in our home yet. Doesn't match our stuff. But not seeking to flog it. We will fit it in one day somehow.

My newest enthusiasm is cheese, or more specifically, cheese-eating accompaniments.

To narrow it down properly, I'm talking about knackebrot.

You want more detail? Ok already, sourdough crisp bread. From Peter's Yard, the original model.

The brits are so stupid, they think Jacobs cream crackers hit the spot. I'm qualified to know. I was one of them for decades.

I never ate much cheese and never more than the equivalent of a packet of cream crackers every 3 or 4 years because the cracker never inspired me and neither did it's staple, cheese.

Now, with 2 or 3 weeks experience, I'm wondering how any cunt can ever eat cheese with oatcakes or JC crackers ever again! They're fucking shite, tasteless garbage to fill the ever-gaping and ever-increasing carb hole.

The thinner water biscuit variety grabbed my attention for a tiny period but get yersel into sourdough crisp bread you cunts. It's fucking awesome.

Point taken, Rocket. Will give it a try. I'm a big fan of sour dough bread so keen to try this too.  :thumbsup:

Walking in the woods near Drum Castle last week, took this photo: -



Isn't it beautiful how the bough broke to create a literal clitoral image?

What's it called when someone has both a cock and a fud? That's what that tree is. That's what true photography is about.

Haha. I never saw the cock. I was getting a semi at the big giant fud to consider diving in to. But the wife was with me.

Talking of new found enthusiasms, I may be binning one of mine.

The wife's birthday is next month so we always spend some time in London, one of our fav cities on the planet.

We will never bin our London trips in November but we may need to revisit our accommodation strategy.

Last year was the Savoy and 2015 was the Dorchester. China Tang and the Savoy Grill were outstanding culinary experiences but you don't have to stay there to eat there. Next month we are staying at the Ritz. But deliberately not dining there. This time I want to judge the accommodation on its own merits and not be taken in by the quality of the meal served from within its environs. I suspect the money they charge for their rooms isn't actually worth it so if you have any recommendations for decent hotels in London, I'm all ears.

St. Pancras hotel is supposed to be brilliant  :thumbsup: not sure about prices though. Pricey is my guess.

If you're tired of London, you're tired of life.

Some old dude said that.

Aye, I don't particularly like London either. I value my lungs. I just find it a badly laid out, unsustainable, mess and I don't get the hype. In fact, I think the hype is the hype. I'd knock most of it down, as it obviously does have some excellent parts.

I doubt you’re being serious but I’m certain that there will be a “London’s a shitehole” attitude within many in the NE.

This is worthy of examination.

As someone who was born in Foresterhill of NE stock going back as far as memory allows, with not one ancestor coming from south of the Dee and probably every one of us being within a 40 or 50 mile boundary and therefore a 20 or 25 mile radius (but no record of cousins or worse marrying so confidently NOT interbred) with not even a solitary Fifer or weegie in sight, feel I’m qualified to observe be the differences between characteristics of the NE and elsewhere. Living 15 years overseas and a further 10 years away from Abz in other Scottish places made these differences an area of interest for me.

Aberdeen’s a shitehole and the inept coonsil who ran down our declining city centre isn’t saved by the unique nature of our people. The NE is so sick and so thick, it returned Conservative in a number of constituencies. Not even Kirkcaldy or Dundee or even weegieland were that stupid.
