    Saturday again...

    You lot all off on jollifications with family and friends.

    But, this is when I withdraw from my daughter and family to give them space to themselves.
    (Remember I see them every day doing 'after school' duties)

    I don't mind at all - I do like my own company. Though a few days on my own does make me reflect on this.

    Of course emus and yellphone do punctuate the weekend. Tho' I don't do texting... = silly old biddy! - would that be SOB ?

    "Why was the 1870 Education Act introduced? Why did it not establish
    a uniform system of elementary education?"

    What does a 'uniform system' mean? As in the same style / system of education everywhere? :confused:

    We used to make egg pasta when we were kids. Great fun! Put a pile of flour on a board, make a well in the center and drop some eggs in the well and then carefully cover the eggs with flour..then smoosh it up with your hands. The dough sticks to the ends of your fingers and makes them heavy..odd sensation.

    Then you use the machine to stretch out the dough.. slowly making it thinner and thinner.

    Then you get to use the various pasta attachments! I used to be able to make the dough about 5ft long using the machine.

    Ahh the memories...

    I've got a "Win this Pink pack" ad. A pink laptop,camera and MP3 player....pink isn't my colour though (blue or green would do).

    A breadmaker, now that is really handy Red, we have one, you can actually make pasta dough in them too which we have done in a very short time then run it through the machine same as Jonny described.

    We had a pasta party and all stood around in our kitchen drinking and making the dough and drinking then hanging the pasta strips over the clothes horse then drinking and eating and we had a little drink and then we cooked it while drinking and then we heated the sauce while having a drink , then we all had a drink while we poured a drink and ate it ALL up.

    After all that work we were so tired we sat down and had a drink.:drunk:

    OR you could just use the thingy to bake bread or fruit loaf or dough for rolls or easter buns or coffee scrolls or.....:blahblahblah:

    The last cows I saw were following my dad and I as we walked through their field. Two of them were Highland cows, the big fluffy orangey ones with horns as long as my arms. It was a bit scary, even though they clearly wanted to be friends rather than trample us to death.

    Its odd because we switched because of the 'mericans...now its dark again in the morning...sigh!

    I read somewhere that the new DST ( in NA ) rules are saving 0.5% in electricity (over all).

    If they let me sleep longer, :night_moon:I'd stay in bed and not drive around, using up carbon hoofprints etc. So if they let me alone and didn't make me get up early, I could save the planet...:sleep1:

    Golly Frogdust, just how much bleach did you slosh down there? Or did you have your head far too close?

    You may have a particularly powerful brand. Can't say I have noticed much of a smell from bleach.

    I once used one of these "Industrial Strength" chemicals when in employment as a cleaner in a hospital. It was "Lysol" a bit like Jeyes fluid.

    I was gasping.
    Quite conveniently, I was swabbing out the morgue!
