Scenes From Sans Culinary Challenge.

This post is not suitable for vegetarians and those of a nervous disposition.

First, preparation is critical.

Unfortunately I had some problems trying to light the microwave, and managed to blow it up.
I then had to follow Plan B and cook the meat from scratch in a pan.

Here we see me making sure my hands are scrupulously clean before mixing the ingredients.

Ensuring my hands are thoroughly dry before proceeding.

Putting the secret ingredient into the pan.

Voila! Herewith dinner is served!

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and I shall have this Chieftain o' the pudding race for dinner tomorrow.

I have reached into the void and procured some neeps and tatties to accompany this former wild creature on it's journey.

I shall cook it using the traditional Scottish method known as Haggis ding.

Homage. . .

Words by Bill Forsyth.
Dialogue by Robert Buchanan.

"You've got to make the most of what life offers you. Life isn't meant to be easy, not for anybody.

Okay, some of us may start out with more than others, more advantages you might say, that's not the main item.

It's basically every man for himself.

Take the two of us for instance. What did we start with? What did we do with ourselves?
Well for a start there's my O-Levels, two.

Ha! now there's a fair advantage you might say, but I worked for them.

Eh! you see, that's what you & I have in common, not the O-Levels, no, the advantages, Eh!

You know, the little supports that help us along lifes' weary way.

Let's face facts Earl, we've had our fair share of advantages, like for instance, you had a nice warm Country, money, big house, girls, big horse.

Aye, and I bet you a lot of nice curries up at that Kandahar, Eh!, nicely done Earl.

Oh! wait a minute here. I don't see too many O-Levels there, Earl old son.

How did you do it?

An' why don't I have a job!"

George Square, Glasgow.

Since I walked across this Square at least twice a day for seven years, I thought I might post a picture. The latter is a stitch, albeit not a very good one. I'm still learning. Long may that continue. As always, clicking upon the graphic will enable a larger view.


Balanced on the wave of life, some fall while others have cocktails. Behold a winner.

I Was Prettier Then...

Jen asked for yearbook photos...

I wanted to work for NASA. It didn't work out. I failed Geometry.
Instead I went on to develop people peeling robots for the forthcoming Triffid invasion.

These Raintown days
Unfurl in black
They beat on my head
Like Jen from Slack.
