  1. You're obviously distraught with Herself's absence.Don't worry I'm sure she'll return soon loaded down with her purchases.

  2. Nice view. And I see they've got porridge on the menu. "Served hot with Homemade Fruit Compote, Pouring Cream, and Demerara Sugar". At school. it was served boiling hot and lumpy, and you had to cool it with canals of milk carved in it, and sweeten with white sugar. No cream or demerara sugar for us. WTF's "compote"? 

    • Heh! Thanks for linking to them Frank! I meant to at the time but forgot and it’s almost impossible to edit on this damned phone. Apparently compote means preserved in syrup. It’s a new one on me too.

  3. Be a bit careful, Grandad.  Last time we were away our B&B also had free Interwebby-wotsit, which we used to find local things to do.  The only thing was, as the Interwebby-wotsit was clearly also made available for visiting children (of whom there were few, thankfully) – or maybe for the owner’s own kids – our laptop came back loaded to the gunnels with all sorts of automatic, free-to-download, daft kiddie games that we couldn’t get rid of when we got home, no matter how hard we tried.  In the end we had to reset the machine to a date before we’d gone away.  Luckily we don’t store anything on the laptop, so nothing of value was lost, but it was a real pain!

    • I was only on for a few minutes (better things to be doing) and only went into a couple of familiar sites. Linux tends to treat malware with contempt anyway. The worst that could happen is some kind of addon for Firefox which would be easy to shift.
