  1. Whats for Supper...

    Mine was from our freezer, not so good as when we get it from the chippy. It amazes me how the producers and supermarkets get away with selling 'Extra large portions' which are about ¼ the size of a regular portion in the Fish and Chip shop.

    I cannot see any reason why it would be genuine. RC relics are false What if it was genuine? That would be no reason to worship it.

    It was very rough on the journey out but somewhat better on the way home. . Today I had fish'n'chips.

    The ferry that we travelled to France on, The Pride of Kent. on Thursday, ran aground today outside Calais in high winds, trapping 200 or 300 passengers, the news reports varied. I wonder if they gave them a free meal.

    I made a middle eastern nut roast for my wife today for lunch. I did intend to have steak but forgot to get it out of the freeze, so we shared the veggie meal. Had bread and cheese for supper.

    Noêl = Christmas Repas = Meal, usually evening meal. So Christmas Dinner, Often in small ads in papers there is HR, which took us a long time to work our what that stood for. We eventually worked out it stood for Heures de Repas, That is meal times. Today I had bacon and grilled tomatoes with French bread.

    Well we went to France. We booked it some time ago before the weather forecast was for storms today. Ferry was over an hour late leaving in the morning and the sea was a bit rough. Wasn't too bad while we were sitting down, but I found it difficult to walk without my stick and holing onto a had rail when there was one. Coming back it was well over an hour late but much calmer. I had my usual for that restaurant, Roast ham and a selection of vegetables. The most tender ham I have tasted anywhere. While we were doing our shopping in the hypermarket, there were a lot of French students in pairs with questionaires for all the English they found. "ow do you celebrate Christmas?" My wife told them how we pronounce How, with an h, as the French don't pronounce the H in words. One of the questions was "What do you eat for Christmas?" I can't remember what we said but I head another conversation and the man said "Yorkshire pudding" I expect that got them confused. My wife kept answering in French, but I said "You should answer in English" "I know she said but I have difficulty speaking to French people in English, the reason we come to France is that I can speak in French." We were once in a restaurant and the waiter kept speaking to her in English and she said "Speak to me in French, if you want to speak to me in English come to England then I will speak to you in English." I felt a bit sorry for him as I expect he wanted to practice his English as she did her French,

    Sounds good. We have a fan oven in the kitchen which I like. We don't have a dining room and use our conservatory as a dining room an use a combination microwave out there for oven cooking as it is rather cold in this weather and it saves having to use another heat source to warm the room up. Tomorrow we are plannoing to go the France for the day and I expect the meal we would have will be called Repas de Noêl

    It was our seniors Christmas lunch today. We usually have a suggested minimum donation of £2.50 which just about covers the cost of the food. Today it was free as one of our members, Edith died and at her funeral her family asked if any donations were made, they would like them to go towards the lunches. We start with a short gospel message. We had home made parsnip soup, Roast turkey, roast potatoes, carrots,, green beans, Brussels sprouts, piggies in blankets, with cranberry sauce, with a choice of Christmas Pudding, strawberry gateau, fruit trifle, and a couple of us had fruit salad and cream, Then they sang carols, and ended with tea or coffee and hot mince pies. Including helpers, there were just over 50 of us. There was also a veggie option, I am not sure what was in it, but it was very nice It was some sort of vegetable mixture in a puff pastry roll, with a leek sauce. Helen, our cook, did one at the end of last week and brought it for my wife and I to try, and for any suggestions. We suggested more seasoning and herbs like oregano. I usually help doing the veggie bit, but had a fall Sunday evening and wasn't felling too good. We invite any speakers and their wives who have given the message during the year to join us, We had three and two wives and one daughter,
  10. Are We Teaching the Bible Well in Our Churches?

    When did the Bishop of Rome become the pope, and when did the Roman Church become the Roman Catholic Church?

    We had a veggie day today. For lunch I did Aubergine Parmigiana. With roast Chanternay carrots and green beans. Helen our chief (usually only) cook for our seniors lunch and it is their Christmas lunch on Tuesday and she has tried a veggie dish for those who are. There are only two at present, my wife is the only veggie but two others prefer our veggie meals to meat, but one has not been for a while. there is another who doesn't like pork, and has veggie when we have that . She brought something for us to try, which h she couldn't think of the name. It had chestnuts and spinach and other things in puff pastry. She brought one for me and asked my opinion as she thought it was a bit tasteless, We had it for supper and we thought it was quite nice, My wife said she thought it needed more seasoning and I said I would have added some Marigold Swiss Bouillon and a bit of oregano or thyme.

    I don't usually watch David Attenborough's nature progammes on TV, but last night i saw a few minutes of Blue Planet. He said there was a barren Island in the Galápagos Islands. There is a lizard there that he said is the only sea going lizard anywhere in the world, he said they arrived on the island on driftwood, and when there was no food they evolved into sea going creatures to be able to get food. They must have evolved as soon as they arrived or they would have starved. OH no wait! Evolution takes thousands or millions of years. Of course there is no evidence for any of this and they call this science.

    You can't discriminate in our country, sadly and I suspect soon in your country, the way that creeping goes. A little leaven or the thin end of the wedge.

    Your dad is the same age as me. My memory is starting to go, when in a conversation I often can't think of the word I want to use.I recently couldn't think of evolution and had to say, the opposite of creation. I really feel for you, I prayed for your dad.
