  1. Horribly pricey, but lovely detailed figures: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/monkstoneminis/the-three-pigs-and-other-denizens-of-dunnmere?ref=project_tweet
  2. Got mine recently. Very impressed with the detail, you really need a magnifying glass to appreciate some of it. I may actually have to paint some Warhammer figures to make use of these.
  3. Wishing you every happiness on your Birthday.
  4. I've backed previous Kickstarters by Wendy's Miniatures and been very impressed with the service and quality of the miniatures. However if you look at all of the page on this offering there is a stretch-goal that looks perilously close to plagiarism.
  5. I'm afraid that is a little too Zen for me on a Tuesday. The sound of one hand clapping, perhaps?
  6. "I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left" by Seasick Steve
  7. Thing in the Well, Eye Tyrant and Nessie... But tomorrow might be a different trio.
  8. Delighted, and not complicated: 6 large, fresh hens eggs, boiled for exactly 3 and a half minutes, then shelled. 1 lb, good quality pork sausage meat. 1 onion, finely chopped 4 oz medium cheddar, grated. 2 oz of whatever pickle suits your taste. (I use Branston, which may not be available over the pond. Mango chutney is also good.) Breadcrumbs, salt and pepper to taste Mix up the sausage meat, cheese and onion. divide this into six portions and carefully layer it over the eggs. Whisk up another egg. Coat the meat-covered eggs in this and then roll them in the breadcrumbs. Heat a deep pan of cooking oil to 170 degrees C. Put the eggs in one at a time and deep fry until golden-brown. This should take about 8 - 10 minutes. If done right the yolks of the egg will still be semi-soft. As a variation I sometimes cold-smoke the boiled eggs. Largest mammal: Several Blue Whales swimming in a pod with their young of the Bight of Biafra. They came and swam alongside the small tanker I was sailing on for nearly a whole hour.
  9. Yes, the neighbour who sold me the eggs so we could make these Cheese and Chutney Scotch Eggs; There were half a dozen, but temptation struck before I got the camera out.
  10. This is an oxymoron; Chief Engineers are the highest form of Human Life. It is impossible to be "demoted" to Chief. Paintybeard. ("Double-barrelled" Chief Engineer of 26 years seniority, retired.)
