    My grandfather always served them as a starter. Yorkshire pudding with gravy and then roast beef and veg for main course.

    Random irritations of the day......

    Our oven isn't big enough. Potatoes and parsnips on one shelf, pigs in blankets and stuffing on the second shelf and cauliflower and broccoli cheese in the bottom. Have to wait until I'm taking stuff out to be able to chuck in the yorkshires for three or four minutes. By the time everything is...

    Random irritations of the day......

    Or are we being told these things in order to try to get us to buy more of a particular item? Turkey suppliers saying there is going to be a shortage of turkeys this Xmas? Toy suppliers saying there is going to be a shortage of toys this Xmas? It just all leads back in to idiots panic buying and...

    The Footie Thread

    This is what I don't understand. Why would Utd pay over £70 million for a player and then not give him game time? I assume that Ole wanted him, rather than it being a board decision, so if you're spending that kind of cash it has to be on a first choice player. There are very few clubs, apart...

    Our sideways and backwards passing wasn't good enough so he brought on Henderson to show them how it's done.

    The Footie Thread

    Southgate is to international football management what Ole is to club management. In both cases the results are down to the players, in spite of the managers, and neither of them appear to have a plan or have the balls to make the big decisions and substitute the big names.

    The Footie Thread

    We've got Foden, Mount, Grealish and Sterling in the area behind the striker. Why on earth is Kane dropping back there? What does he think he adds that the other four can't provide? Get yourself in the box and one of those four will find you at least once and probably twice or three times during...

    I wonder if Southgate will think about bringing Kane on for the second half.

    Isn't it that it is CO2 neutral? The amount of CO2 released when the wood is burnt is the same as the amount of CO2 absorbed by the tree while it was growing. Therefore it is nett zero in terms of CO2 emissions.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Plus "user error" meaning that LFT tests won't ever be as accurate as they could be. Not swabbing the correct area for long enough, not putting the swab far enough up the nose or not leaving it in the liquid for long enough before doing the test. All of these things can lead to a false negative.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    That's quite unusual. Normally if you get a positive LFT then the PCR test will confirm it. I think it's 98%+ that a positive LFT will be followed with a positive PCR. A negative LFT is a lot less definite that you don't have it and is much more often followed by a positive PCR test.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Messages at 2-17 this afternoon with negative results for both the boys so all in all a very good service. I guess myself and the older boy have got a cough and cold which you might remember as being allowed pre-covid.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Text message at 8-51 this morning to say that my PCR test is negative. Still waiting on results for the boys but less than 15 hours between getting the test and getting the result is pretty good.
