No Asha, I live with my eldest son at the moment, my youngest is living with his father. I grow as many vegetables as I can cram into my little garden. I love my herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, everything. I have a Bramley apple tree too and Gordon does do a very good apple tart.

Yes, my hands do the dishes. I like washing up, it gives you room to digest your food while you stand at the sink thinking random thoughts and being thankful to have dishes to wash after a wonderful meal courtesy of Mr Ramsey and my son. You must try the mushroom risotto it is beautiful.

Linda truly impressed by how you have got fully back on subject smile

I know what you mean about washing up. Where I live now a dishwasher sits unconnected on a counter top. Does your kitchen sink have a window in front of it? Mine has a wall, and I find this less useful for reflection than an interesting vista...

You mention Ramsay's apple tart. Thanks for the tip - I am developing an article on English apple recipes for the English Culture site.

I have just googled Gordon Ramsay's mushroom rissotto and found hits that include videos. Will look over them and see if I can try one out.

Whoops! Gordon ain't gonna like that! eek

Hope he does not come in here like a hurricane and yell at us! shocked


Ooh Phyllis, think you may be right!!! Best keep me mouth shut in future, as he won't take kindly to this moaning Sassenach viking

Oh OK - that's a Viking, but same part of the world laugh

Clearly I am more unforgiving than everyone else on here and I shall endeavour to be more understanding of poor, wee (Gay?) Gordon in future.

That's a reference to the Gay Gordons by the way, in case anyone wondered grin

Whoops - Sassenach is not just a derogatory term for an Englishman by a Scotsman - apparently it is also used by the Irish (ie Gaelic) against the English.

And as my ancestors were more likely to look like this - irish than to wear a bowler hat, perhaps I am no Sassenach after all!!

Phew smile

Wow brilliant Asha!!

Yeeha! I enjoyed that. And it made me think -

1) Of how the Scottish ancestry of the USA may have contributed to American line dancing - the music and the style of dance

2) Why modern onlookers to this dance may misunderstand the meaning of Gay!!

They are all guys after all, skipping in a circle holding hands, and wearing skirts grin

LOL Eileen

and sorry but they are just such sissies in their little black shoes and sporans and knee high socks, but I love it! Thanks for posting the link Asha. I can see why it is called the Gay Gordons lol. Brilliant. The kilts are amazing all the different colours and plaids.

I wonder if Gordan Ramsey has a kilt made up in the Ramsey tartan?

Ha ha - Gordon Ramsey REALLY needs to join them, then we could truly see his 'feminine' side.

And after all - it is HIS dance!!

And it might calm him down a bit laugh
