Re: Caldicot 2010 pictures

Look, the whole episode has been quite pathetic. Most of the posts were people responding to what someone said someone had said, or meant, rather than what was actually written down. Personally I'd have ignored the requests to remove it, but what's the value in bringing it back, just so that someon...

Re: Do re-enactors REALLY look the part ?

I'm trying desperately to remember the name of the LH museum in America which has just the kind of portrayal many here seem to envisage: Imagine wandering to the edge of the town, onto the farm. As a member of the public you can see a man accross the other side of a field, in period garb (Victorian...

Re: meat fruit

best results have been from macerating the parsley (stems as well as leaves) then grinding in a mortar along with small quantities of hot water. the resultant pulp then squeezed out and the liquid used.
