"and no mortally wounded writhing people."

I did this at rockingham and a St Johnner ran over to treat me, I had my eyes shut but perceived a shadow opened them and saw him, I had to ask him to go away.

I now have changed my definition of subtlety, my error is using it as a generic.

Gandi has the right of it.

I shall remember that, thanks.

Would my evnagelists still be subtleties Gandi, they are certainly inedible?

Sounds like a subtle joke to me...or has the potential for it, the pie after the birds took off.

Well in theory they are food sculptures/things aren't they, how they are actualy contrived/explained etc is another matter.

Indeed, pays to keep 'em peeled.

Alas the pics are probably 13 years old now. Nice to see things then though.

Actually the shots of the bill line and archery were taken specifically for a publication at the time. They have been used in others by the same author.

Just as well you clarified the lye bit, I can imagine some not quite right consequences if the wrong term of lye was used.

Lady C, Caudel makes sense, the drink that is as the recipe is a liquid one.



Pobs. wow, bread and milk. Albert Pierrepoint's dad used to have pobs. Never heard other than in his autobiog, until now.

He was a Yorkshireman. so the connection is clear.
