Strudelteig is good. I also tried egg roll squares!

Flummoxed that a hairdresser cannot even give you a bit of symmetry round the ears. Is it difficult to cut the pointy bits around my ears the same length and same thickness both sides? And to charge 40 Euros for what is as short as a man's cut... guess I should be in the vent thread. Sigh.

Noted that TELE5 was showing the Flight of the Phoenix (1965) with

James Stewart and Richard Attenborough. The Telekom page showed

the synopsis with a short credit list.

 

Last night I settled down to enjoy this B/W story.

 

Colour ? Huh ?

Dennis Quaid and Miranda Otto ?

They showed the 2004 remake instead.

 

Even son of mine gave up and left the couch to go to bed early....

@john g. Blimey, fortunately Curran and Foakes are looking set (cursed them both), but it could still go Ireland's way with one more wicket.

Oh well, it was exciting for a little while. 

I'm guessing Ireland will be a bit upset they didn't review Foakes when he was on 37!

Yes, it´s over! :D

It had me worried for a while!

Nice that Ireland have a competitive team - truly. Good for cricket.

Why are both Corbyn and May saying that the reason Labour and Tories have lost so many votes is because the public want them "to get a deal done" on Brexit, when the parties with the biggest gains (LDs and greens) are both against leaving the EU?

 

Because they both live in a parallel universe

Well, I had planned to do some gardening and have folk over for a barbecue. It now looks like I might use the digger as a snowplough instead.

I wanted to transplant a tiny raspberry seedling into a new place and discovered a fence post foundation a foot wide and deep underneath! So out came a pick axe and out it came! Then idiot found yet another, and another, so three huge chunks of concrete lie on my lawn now.

Seriously??  Snow ?   

The direct result of this in the Swiss Jura is that I was up at 5 this morning having prepared my Tracht and instrument for action yesterday. Bus due to arrive at 6 in the next village. Stood around for an hour. Got call from the oh-so-organised Swiss (totally flummoxed about how they got this reputation) at 7 (an hour after we were due to leave) to say there is 20cm of snow and the event is cancelled. 40 people went home.

Snow here, too! I ran out to carry the portable greenhouse with the precious tomatillo and basil seedlings back inside!

Just admit it. Luther made all this grammar $h1t up to try and look good next to the Latin-speakers.
