your so welcome my dear friend, anything else you want to know then please feel free to ask, after all thats what I'm here for,

15 Feb, 2012

 

well i know that!!!

let me think ~ do you know if we can eat it and if so what is the best recipe?

15 Feb, 2012

 

oh and where was it first discovered and by whom???

is that enough for today?

15 Feb, 2012

 

yes you can eat it, best braised slowly with onions and garlic and a few herbs, I do believe it was first discovered in the black forest by a Dr. Dolittle, i will have to check it out, but I think you will find one is correct,

15 Feb, 2012

 

no doubt he could talk to it too!! suppose he said 'now hop up into this lovely braised onion stew!!'

i never doubt one [yorkshire] is correct
.
.
.
i wouldnt dare!!!

15 Feb, 2012

 

of course he could talk to it, do you no nothing Sticki, dear O Dear

15 Feb, 2012

 

and thats because he is really a fun guy!!??

15 Feb, 2012

 

now now stick don't get smart, I am trying my hardest to educate you,, one rather thinks one should look up my Dr Doolittle you will be rather amazed at all the wonderful things he could do, not only could he talk to the animals he could talk to the tree fungi also,

15 Feb, 2012

 

well its a pity he couldnt talk to the slugs and tell them to CLEAR OFF!!!

15 Feb, 2012

 

One gave you advice yesterday regarding the slugs, cucumber in an aliminium tray, I am just wasting my time and breath with you," WHY DON'T YOU LISTEN TO ME"

15 Feb, 2012

 

Is one mean to be looking from behind the turkey? Is that supposed to be it's bum.....

15 Feb, 2012

 

anyone who might just read this lot, I bet their hearts go out to me for my patience with you,

15 Feb, 2012

 

im not sure homebird im getting scared cos yorkshire is cross

15 Feb, 2012

 

and perhaps they will feel sorry for poor me????????????

15 Feb, 2012

 

Oh my G-D I have another one on here, who mentioned Bum may I ask, Oh no Homebird, its not a real turkey with a bum its a tree fungi, G-d give me strength

15 Feb, 2012

 

why should people feel sorry for you when you are acting like an idiot, I am trying to educate you,

15 Feb, 2012

 

I had noticed.......that's the trouble with Clever-cloggs....no patience with the less endowed with brain power or those with a short attention span....

15 Feb, 2012

 

yorkshire i think relaxation time is overdue!!! im very worried about your stress levels

15 Feb, 2012

 

its hard enough with you Sticki, now we have homebird wanting to talk about bums,

15 Feb, 2012

 

now yorkshire think you will have to answer that!!!

15 Feb, 2012

 

Hang on a minute, who you calling a clever clogs lady, and no patience, don't call me the Saint for nothing, and I'm not sex mad like you H/B Bums what a thing to want to discuss on GOY

15 Feb, 2012

15 Feb, 2012
