Latest post of the previous page:

Don't count but, for example, yesterday was a banana, apple, lettuce leaf, gherkin and large bowl of home made carrot soup. Plus nuts and dates, cranberries and black cherry jam on my toast.


Do you actually count your five and do you include bits of things that are in your food?

Don't normally bother to count, because it would be very difficult for me to eat only five portions of fruit and vegetables. Even on a "bad" day I usually manage seven or eight. Yesterday was fairly typical for this time of year: banana (1); raspberries (1); blackcurrants (1/2); lettuce (1); watercress + cucumber (1); tomatoes (1); leftovers (1); onion (1); aubergine + courgette (1); red pepper (1); broccoli (1); black beans (1); cherries (1/2); apple and black grape juice (1). So that's 13. And I didn't count olives, or garlic, or tomato puree, or the raisins in my muesli. Or the Mackie's of Scotland 100% fruit mango and orange frozen smoothie.


Which vegetable would you miss most if you had to give it up for some reason?

The most used vegetable in the world (some sources think it's the tomato, but we all know the tomato is a fruit) No, the humble onion is the most used vegetable in the world, and one I use probably 5 days a week, and so the one that would be the biggest miss. (although I could substitute leeks, but not quite the same)

Do you engage the JWs if (when) they come a knocking, or do you send them off with a flea in their lug?

I shut the door on them because they always seemed to call when I am busy doing something interesting.

Focus. It always has some fascinating bits of trivia, as well as the more educational articles.

Does your wife/husband/partner have any really annoying habits?

No! Of course not.


Does you wife/husband/partner participate in this forum?

No, I don't have one.


How long have you had a partner/been single?

Had the same partner since 1968, when she was 14 and I was 17.

Do you ever feel strongly enough about something, that you write to a newspaper?

Yes occasionally. Local paper usually puts them in. Most recently on faith schools and Tyrrells crisps with 'fair trade' on the packet ....

That's a morbid question. I suppose I have to say my mother because if I die before her, it will reduce the number of people she has to look after her in old age by 50% and the number who can take care of geeky type problems and DIY by 100%.




Name a poem you particularly like and say why. Then post it in the poetry thread, if it's not there already.

If I can only name one I'll go for 'Dover Beach' which I've loved since I was a child. In moments of great emotional pain I've recited out it loud and understood something about how people might find comfort in reciting a prayer.

On a good night, about seven. Any less is not enough.




Did your parents smack or beat you?

Do you ever waste time when you know you had more important things to do and then hated yourself for it?

Yes. However, it is interesting that often things that seem vital today, when put off till next week, seem less vital. Put them off till next month and you may find you don't have to do them at all. I also don't generally hate myself at all in this kind of situation unless the time wasting involves munching biscuits and/or crisps. I kind of like myself most of the time.

Can you give three examples of situations where you are likely to (possibly, though not necessarily guiltily) procrastinate?
Carpe diem. Savour every moment.

Procrastinated, mainly, though I did manage to fit a nice walk in on Sunday.

Sadly, no. I know I mostly enjoy my dream life but despite pen and paper by the bed have little recollection of them. Most frustrating when I know I've dreamt something interesting - the nub of it seems on the tip of my tongue but is lost forever in the cold light of morning.

About eleven miles, by road. Nine, as the crow flies.

Sadly, no.
Not meaning to be pedantic, But how could you know that? If you don't remember your dreams, then how do you even know you had one?

We were born in the lake district (north Cumbria, or Cumberland as I like to call it) So I suppose around 500/550 miles.


And reply to Emma.
Six if you count the caravan we lived in from Oct 2,000 till march 2,001, but 5 houses.

orang utan - so that I could live my life calmly, not knowing my natural habitat was being destroyed
if I developed any insights I might even relish the huge admiration society that exists outside my cirumference


do you think there are any renowned/famous people who contribute to this fourm?
