    w/c 19

    MAE ALL...starting this week's thread.

    Mick...hope your detecting is successful today.

    Pauly...saw your post on last weeks thread so thought I'd copy it over here.

    Mae everybody,Pie,sorry you had to get rid of your client but as you said it would be nearly impossible to find her a place with all of that,PQ,I never realized it before but I think Portland daughter works at an event place similar to yours,weddings,baby showers,etc,,thats weird no baking allowed at a craft thing,thats the only reason I go haha feel a bit melancholy cuz although I didn't want to drink during my mom's visit I did want to see her I just felt I couldn't handle the emotions right now but this guilt is a lot to handle too,oh well it'll pass,much love and wishes for a happy AF Sunday

    I think the coworker took the easy way out. If all the other craft fairs can figure out the health regulations why couldn't she. Sorry you're feeling melancholy and I don't think you have anything to feel guilty about. Maybe a call to her?

    Lav...definitely taking it easy today. Got a lot of my shows taped so it's a binge watching tv day. LOL

    Wishing everyone a Super Sober Sunday....:PPQP:

    Good Sunday evening Abbers,

    Greetings from the land of cold winds, BRRRR!!!
    Somehow or another the power stayed on so I am grateful!

    PQ, are there really health regulations regarding the sale of baked goods? No one seems to give a hoot about that in the US! If I bake something gluten free, dairy free or nut free I usually label it so the buyers know what they are getting. I'm really nice that way, ha ha!!!!
    Glad you have an easy day planned for today.

    Pauly, no guilt necessary! You are doing what you have to do to protect yourself right now & there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Perhaps, some day in the future you will feel able to sit down & explain to your mom why you had to take measures to protect your quit. Be proud of your good decision.

    Mick, congrats on your finds today. Hope they are awesome

    Today ended up being horseradish harvest day. YB went out & dug up the roots, peeled them & processed them outside. I let him use my food processor because I am so nice, LOL. He made a ton of the stuff, will have to find takers!!

    Hello to the rest of the group & wishing a nice night for all!

    Yup, if it's offered to the public (craft sale) and not prepared in a "commercial kitchen" (which complies with the health regulations) it has to be identified as such and all ingredients listed. Hadn't been a problem for the last 4 years when it was my responsibility LOL

    heres one of the things I found yesterday...doesnt look much ,but its pretty rare it is a terret ring ...ok whats that? horsey people will know..its

    A terret is a metal loop on a horse harness, guiding the lines and preventing them from becoming tangled or snagged on the harness. ... Terrets are commonly made of brass or steel, and they may stand up stiffly, or they may consist of a hinged ring. They are usually circular, but may be U-shaped or square.

    this one is bronze age...and he bronze age here was 2500..800 bc so a minimum age is app 3000 yrs old with a max of 4600...

    hiya Lav...freezing yesterday...saw a monkey looking for a welder ....what an incredibly generous good spirited person you are!!I ll save a chair upstairs for you..... in the meantime have a brew...


    hello everyone else...

    Prince Charles was driving around his mother's estate when he
    accidentally ran over her favourite dog,
    crushing it to a pulp. He got out of his Range Rover and sat down on
    the grass totally distraught.
    The whole world was against him and now his mother would go
    ballistic. Suddenly he noticed a lamp half-buried in the ground.He dug it up, polished it and immediately a Genie appeared. "You have freed me
    from thousands of years of imprisonment," said the Genie. "As a reward I shall grant you one wish."
    "Well, " said the Prince, "I have all the material things I need, but let me show you this dog." They walk over to the splattered remains of the dog. "Do you think you could bring this dog back to life for me?"
    The Genie carefully looked at the remains and shook his head. "This
    body is too far gone for even me to bring it back to life. Is there something else you would like?"
    Prince Charles thought for a minute, reached into his pocket and pulled out two photos
    First Photo - "I was married to this beautiful woman called Diana,"
    said Prince Charles.
    Second Photo - "But now I love this woman called Camilla,""You see Camilla isn't beautiful at all, so do you think you can make Camilla as beautiful as Diana?"
    The Genie studied the two photographs and after a few minutes
    said, "Let's have another look at the dog!"

    I lay in bed with the Wife earlier and said, "Luv, you know how you're always going on about the patter of tiny feet? Well."
    "Oh my God!" She gasped excitedly, "You want us to try for a baby?"
    "No I said , we've got fcking mice in the loft."

    Paddy takes two stuffed dogs on to the Antique Roadshow.
    "Ohh," said the presenter, "This is a very rare set, produced by the celebrated Johns Brothers Taxidermists who operated in London at the turn of the 19th century. Do you have any idea what they would fetch if they were in good condition?"
    "Sticks!" Paddy replied.

What do you put it on?my only experience with horseradish is they always ask if we want it at the Arby's drive thru haha,much love to all and wishes for a happy AF Monday
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    Huge horseradish fan here, Lav! I'll pop over in a bit to pick some up from you. May I have a side of prime rib as well, please?

    Good evening Abbers,

    As some of you already know - we have enough horseradish here to float a boat, ha ha!!!!
    This was the first time we tried growing it, I guess we did OK.

    PQ, commercial kitchens cross-contaminate foods as well as home bakers - don't know who to trust except yourself I guess

    Mick, you are quite a finder of cool things
    I hope the birthday dinner went well.

    Pauly, good horseradish is an awesome flavoring that can be added to all kinds of foods - even a tiny bit in mashed potatoes believe it or not. YB uses it with just about anything he eats. It's an acquired taste, for sure.

    Pie, I wish I could get some samples of this stuff in the mail for everyone, haha!

    I took my list to the supermarket today & hopefully got everything I need for the holiday. I will not go back to the store, it was a madhouse!!!Hello to the rest of the crew & wishing everyone a nice night!
