    Hmmm, when did it close? Last November we took refuge from the deluge in there. 10781466256_IMG_6527.JPG

    Don't be too disheartened by the weather forecast.

    We were away for a week in May and the forecast was grim virtually every day, with near monsoons and roaring winds predicted.

    We forced ourselves to go out in it though - after all, we were on holiday.
    Here are some of the pics I took:

  5. I think the cheap flights bit puts folk off. It means to put it bluntly, the serious possibility of pissed up idiots misbehaving on those 2 to 3 hour cheap flights. Having some drunken moron asking you for a fight or threatening to open the plane's door would put me off flying on 'cheap flights'.

    They are certainly not under selling it!

    We're in Cornwall and it's been raining since we got here. No great surprise.....it's Cornwall after all. It's been a bit chilly as well P1050018.JPG with a north wind. I went and bought a large bag of coal.

    It could be a lot worse.:okay:

    Just been scanning the weather forecast for tomorrow and there's a possibility of a dry spell later in the afternoon (only for an hour)
    I'll be waiting eagerly for it and will be out front door like and a scalded cat to get a few miles in on the bike lol

    Dredge them in egg, and then in bread crumbs.
    Deep fry in oil until golden brown, and serve while hot.
    Classic Escargot -
    Let your snails/slugs purge themselves in a container of damp lettuce for 24 hours.
    Bring one cup of water or white wine to a boil in a large saute pan, and pour in 2 cups of snails.
