    @pedant;

    To stop emissions is a good thing, especially for breathing. But if the ‘experts”  ( and not all of them do) believe that

    they are making an impact on the Earth’s climate, they want to study past climate properly.

    Thousands, if not millions of years ago, most of the Northern Hemisphere was blanketed in ice. Indeed the UK had

    @janetteb:

    Have you just discovered Terry Pratchett’s Disc world? I’ve the whole set of the series and can’t count how many times I’ve read them all.

    Wouldn’t it have been interesting to see what he would have done with an episode of DW?

    I agree with the farmers. this has been going on for millions of years, long before the Industrial Revolution!  Still, I suppose it gives the Greens something to do.

    Chicken salt, yes I’ve had that on chips…thing is I liked it. Very bad, but haven’t indulged for ages.

    I don’t usually come here, but I am so glad that I did.  Shall check my library to see if they have TDOTD in stock.

    Thank you all.

    Oh, and @jimthefish of course Mr. M is tweaking some noses, that is what he excels at, and why I am so fond of him.

    NO! He wasn’t teasing.

    Just after and probably during the war (the 2nd btw I’m not that ancient) Horse was very popular and, like whale, cheaper than beef, lamb or pork. What he didn’t allow for, was my love of horses. *shudder*

    I much prefer plain English food, although I do enjoy a good curry, Italian and Thai at times. None of the…[Read more]

    @ddoherty95:    Its easy, just say what you see.

    That’s the problem, I don’t see it.

    I don’t think we were able to get much salad during, and just after the war. But when we could i really made up for lost time.

    The only veges I don’t like are: Sprouts, turnips, (unless they are in a genuine Cornish pasty) squash (tasteless)

    pumpkin (also tasteless and OZ’s staple diet it seems!)  and new potatoes.

    Mind, I do like…[Read more]

    @thane16:

    Has your Mum ever mentioned Whale meat ?

    After the war everything was still rationed and beef was too expensive.

    Whale meat was more affordable and delicious if cooked properly. Each steak was about on and a half inches thick and tasted a little like liver. The gravy, made from the juice of meat and vegetables, thickened with flour…[Read more]

    Me too. Especially when he indicates one word, and Donna says “Harvey Warbanger” to which DW replies:

    “How can Harvey Warbanger be one word!”

    I was actually crying with laughter.

    My first laugh of the day, oh dear, oh dear!

    The Doctor (PC) did say that she was “a bad girl, always looking for trouble.”

    It seems she found it! *still laughing.*

    Thank you for this.

    My favourite scene In the Unicorn….. is where he is poisoned and the all charade he and Donna go through.

    Very funny.   I have to say that our meals were not like yours. My mum would dish up whale steak  (cheaper than beef)with mashed potatoes,  fresh peas or spinach and gravy made from the juice of the meat and vegetables and thickened with flour.(yum)

    She never over cooked anything. Mind you, our puddings (not dessert in the UK…[Read more]
