I was not saying that the EU stopped Brits eating offal. My Mother missed the giblets being in the chickens as they were an important part of making good gravy. I have met more people who dislike offal than those who like it. Mind you when questioned the majority of the haters have usually never even tried any offal.As has been said,we are all different in our tastes.  By the way,I was a remainer.

It was still a thing in my UK childhood (50 plus years ago) but giblets stopped being supplied with the actual chicken about 40 years ago. I have a feeling that was one of the EU rules kicking in early. For a while you could buy them separately but these days it is only the livers that are available and those not that readily. I like to serve chicken livers with pasta. However most Brits are scare silly by any form of offal. How far we have come since the sheep's head broth of my fathers childhood followed if he was lucky by liver and onions!

Hi Jack
I can't believe that you found a photo of my beloved late Labrador taking himself for a walk! It is the absolute spit of him in his later years!! Christine

He seemed ore interested in his allotment than being a politician of any seriousness.

Sorry but the UK alternative was an anti Semitic garden gnome. No I voted for neither of them and yes I accept that people like me are equally culpable by avoiding the choice of one useless idiot over the other one.

Hi Jack
I have just read an article in The Times (Nov 21st) about an experiment being run by an Hungarian scientist into the intelligence of dogs. Two Border Collies  - one in Hungary and one in the USA are going head to head in this article but they are testing dogs world wide. All the dogs that owners contacted the team about were Collies. You will no doubt be able to source the article  or other details on line.
Once again in defence of lesser breeds I will say that the Lab I often mention knew the names of all his toys. His favourites were Big Herbert and Little Herbert the squeaky hedgehogs and the correct one requested was always thrown at my feet. No comparison really!!

Hi Les
my 7 year old cocker reacted to the squeaky toy noise and she did sit down the second time it was said. She ignored the door bell as thankfully it has a different ring to ours!I spend a lot of time watching dog related programmes and she tends to get a bit fed up and goes in her basket to sulk but I think she liked the music on this clip as her ears kept wiggling and she sat by my side for the whole thing.

I like the level of intelligence of gun dog breeds as they are pretty bright but easy going with it. I always felt that a collie would be too hard work as Jack is correct that they are super bright but I would get weary of having to be one step ahead of their next decision! I had a Lab years ago that veered close to that level and he used to look a bit peeved when I told"him not to even think about it" if I  had worked out his next move!

Both are familiar to me too but I think of careen in  boating terms ( not that I have boat!)

I too am a strong black coffee girl. I hate tea. Always have. I keep to my Yorkshire roots when it comes to coffee for my cafetiere as I like Taylors of Harrogate Italian Roast.  My brother is a tea obsessive so I pop into Farrers to buy stocking fillers etc for him but I rarely use the cafe. When we first had a flat in Kendal to use for getaways we went in a lot as it was then the only dog friendly cafe in town but there are others that we prefer these days. However Penny do give it a try if you manage a visit as it is full of atmosphere and the grub is yummy!
Our Cocker  Holly is currently confused as she keeps stopping at the cafe doors (and pushing her nose on them if they are open for takeaway) but she fails to understand that lunch / brunch / afternoon cake etc is not possible!!It does tell you how often we visit cafes though!!

I expect Boris will give him a government grant to set up a company supplying bleach products to the NHS.

Leave America? who would have him? Oh of course he will head to Scotland to play golf for all eternity. Previously I have been against breaking up the Union but if the great Nichola lets Trump in then I'll be first in the queue to vote for English independence.

OK. They are harmless! I suppose Bonnie will get used to them as she grows up. Far better than the Cane Toads!The nearest I have come to this type of creature was last year on our holiday in Italy. We saw small lizard type things during our visit to a village on the shore of Lake Garda and they looked far too small to be threatening. In this country we really have very few threatening animals. I suppose the main worry as a dog owner would be finding an Adder on a country walk. Many moons ago my Lab was prone to discovering Adders and had to be swiftly persuaded that they were not playthings! I was fortunate that he was an easily trainable beast so no harm was ever done.

Hi Penny
I am also at the hairdresser this afternoon so at least I know we are BOTH to blame for the wet and windy weather!!
