I made this change because the original topic had become to heavy for some members taste and it's a pity to spoil a good topic for anyone. Let me know what you think, we can always change back. Love, Stanley

I watched a film last night that I recorded a few days ago. Called 'Two Men Went to War' it was a far fetched story about two men who invaded Occupied France in WW2 because they felt they had to get into action. The strange thing is that it is a true story! Look at this link:

Odd - I watched this film when it was on a few weeks ago. Very rare for me to watch any film all the way through. I noticed they stayed very clean during their adventure in France. I didn't know it was based on a "true" story as I watched it, but it was so ridiculous, no writer would have submitted such a script. Definitely comes under the category of 'you couldn't make it up'

I heard you Belle and you are quite right, it's difficult whan heavy topics get mixed with light ones....  Let's see how it pans out.

What grabbed me last night was Rick Stein's programme. Lots of old footage but the coverage of Chalkie the Jack Russell had me in stitches. Some great Padstow characters as well.

Chalkie was one of my heroes - the local Padstow brewery made a strong ale in his memory - I think the name was `Chalky's Bite'! By the way, did you know that Rick Stein has a brother, Professor John Stein, who is an accomplished neurobiologist at the university of Oxford. Some of his work links up with nutrition and diet, such as omega-3 in development.

Now for something different. This looks like a good page for political cartoons and worth keeping an eye on:

We've stayed at Rick Stein's place twice - there are rooms above the restaurant.



His food is as good as it looks on the tele and the restaurant is as laid back as laid back as could be with respect to the atmosphere.  No one would bother there if you turned up in jeans and a tee-shirt.  I would recommend the place to anyone.


First time we went, I hadn't been to Padstow for over 30 years and I was amazed how little place had actually changed.  A lot busier yes, but none of the tackiness that accompany increasing crowds.  It was really the little fishing port it always was.

I think it's a lovely part of the world Cornwall

You're right Richard ....My Mum lives quite close (between St Teath and Port Isaac) and there are still many unspoilt places like that in the area.

Padstow is often referred  to locally as Padstein, which is a touch of sour grapes, and undeserved .....not fair!

You've reminded me, at long last my book on Omega Three fats is on its way.

I was going up Park Road the other day and noticed a very angry lad kicking seven bells out of the new front door at a house. I suspect he was locked out. I noticed today that the white plastic door is badly scratched and marked and I just thought how nice it must be to have agressive teenagers living with you.....

Is it just me or are the presenters on Springwatch going down the same route as Time Team did and becoming a bit too entertaining?

I think "Grumpy" is suffering from clinical depression at the moment.
