For the fourth day of Advent...

So it seems Charlie is my darling according to the sainted Nigella. I often wondered about the frosting upon her cakes but I really do not give a Bakers dozen for this story. It's all over the media but their attention span and that of the public will quickly move to the next salacious titbit of news. It is her choice to use coke although her soon to be ex-husband grabbing her by the throat is beyond the pale. Wars, murder, financial mayhem, homelessness, cute puppies... The vulture news media cannot wait for the next disaster so as to fill the 24 / 7 rolling news pornography. The Glasgow helicopter crash was the latest example of this and the coverage was never ending. Mrs C. watches the news avidly hence I often wander into the room and find it constantly on.

Takes a deep breath and a sip of beer.*

Back to Nigella... I have watched her programme for approximately ten minutes and my response... very attractive  but "Meh!" I can live without watching yet another cookery programme. I did recently enjoy the 'Hairy Bikers' when they toured Germany but that was as much for the travel, the scenery and the food. Otherwise I have had a surfeit of food programmes and prefer to occupy myself with more meaningful tasks.

 *The beer this evening is a lager courtesy of 'Huber' from Monroe, Wisconsin.

Nigella wasn't going to stay the size she is (large but not huge) cooking the way does without something to pep up her metabolism. But, I agree with your take on the media nonsense surrounding it.

Are you thinking of applying for these new inspection jobs in social care that are being talked about? A programme I heard on R4 last week (sorry, can't remember which or when) was interviewing someone official who is driving it, and he said they were looking for highly experienced and qualified mental health practitioners to take on the new roles. Time for some revenge on the System? ;)

Did you know that Monroe, WI is only about 45 miles south of here? Seems pretty wild to me that one of our many smaller breweries got their beer all the way to Grimsby! It's been a looong time since I had Huber, I hope you enjoy!

Hello BW. I had an inkling this might happen after the Shropshire enquiry - I will trawl t'internet. Thank you for the info.

Scoakat - I enjoyed the beer as it was refreshing & only 69 p er bottle.I used google map to explore Monroe. Very tidy and clean with lots of German names. It looks like a good place.
