My dear Linda, they are if you do not mind the language "a pain in the butt." They are tropical and to us in the UK where it is cold, that is a problem. Rolling on the floor laughing Ask Cherie.
I have been over to my mothers today with the ball and chain (Sarah), for dinner. I knew I would end up doing it, but it was worth it as it was roast English lamb with all the trimmings, and lamb mint sauce! Hurray!
Nice bottle of wine which was English, what a treat!
Sarah has never caught a wild Haggis or Scotch mist, nor the Loch Ness monster. The trouble with wild Haggis is they have two legs shorter one side than the other, that enables them to go round mountains, so the mountains are hard to climb for us. If you shoot them they roll down and you cannot find them. Very elusive are wild Haggis nowadays.

Dreadful things to catch Wild Haggis Muriel, although they taste nice! Scotch mist is available in cans nowadays, but I prefer the proper stuff. Rolling on the floor laughing
As for Nessie, I doubt if anyone can catch her, too slippery and large.
Lucy, Sarah is not my age at all, she is a bit younger.
This is Badger beer from Dorset. It was at Hampton Court as they built a garden there, and you got to taste their beers. The ginger one was beautiful, and the peach one for the ladies smelt wonderful, but I preferred the bitter straight out of the wall from the taps. Yes they constantly flowed beer and it was free, heavenly!

ANNOUNCEMENT
I spoke on Skype to the little lad with the tumour who is now in Florida at the McDonald's Foundation place.
After I told his father how to do a video call, which is free anywhere in the world and phone calls as well, he was astonished, but Jake the little one was even more amazed by it all.
it is 90F in Florida and that is far too hot for them, and the beer is terrible or so I am told. I was telling Jake what we had for dinner today (roast lamb), and he claims that is not fair either, as he had to go and get a mask made to shield him from the radiation he has to endure, which was painful by the sound of it. Brave little soul he is, now my heart goes out to him so he can get better. For three months of radiation is not nice, by anyone's standards.
He is a little fighter so we can but hope.

p.s. He says the food is horrible.

Dear Cherie, have you ever tried a real beer? I am talking of one made from hops and barley not chemicals, like lager is. lager is disgusting stuff and not even fit to pour down the drain as it would damage the environment!

Thanks for the update on that little one and family in Florida! Please let them know we are still saying lots of prayers for them. That they can all return to England for some good food!

I spent 6 months in Belgium, back in the mid 80's, and we visited a lot of monasteries there, that make their own beer! Some of them were amazing. Nothing like the beer here in the US!

Dear Linda, how strange for Sarah and I love Belgium and is not that long on the Euro Tunnel now. We can get to Belgium in just over an hour from St. Pancras in London on the High speed Rail link.
I used to go there a lot when I was motorcycle racing, and love the race track at Spa Franchochamps. The beer in Belgium is very good indeed and there are hundreds of different ones to try as well, which is good news. But once again that is real beer and is not made from chemicals at all. The monasteries do a white beer in Belgium that is now on sale over here, that is nice as well.
Group hug
Neil.

Someday I will get back there. We loved to take the autobus, and just go to the next city for the market days! Everyone was super friendly, and the different languages was not a barrier. Someone would always translate for us, and a lot of times, hand signals worked just fine! I learned to measure the size of socks for the kids, to wrap the socks around their fist! They fit every time! We lived above a meat market, and a bakery! We started smelling the breads and baked goods cooking about 3 or 4 in the morning! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! That was good!

i used to stop my motorcycle and go into one of the little cafes with a Les Rouitier sign. they are very cheap and the food was excellent. they are so used to Bikers over there that they don't even look at you if you walk in, whereas in some places in the UK, you get strange looks or told they do not serve Bikers in there establishment. Not overseas they are as good as gold about that belgium is strange as half the people speak Flemish and half French, not that it matters as you can get served in the end. The bread is lovely there and you can get the flour over here and I make my own.
Because of the amount of War Grave cemeteries in Belgium we go back with the Royal British Legion quite often. Plus if I can get to go for the weekend to see the motorcycle racing in the loveliest race circuit in the world (scenery wise), I do.
