Hello, the hoose! It's a lovely sunny Setterday, and I woke up this morning thinking we should set up the BBQ! My contribution is my own speciality home made Polkemmet burgers and Balbardie Blaze burgers - ya'll love 'em. August, Isobel we're definitely needing sausages and burger buns. Melody just came back from holiday in time - she can get out her Karaoke machine. Nice garden, Betty, but the grass needs a wee cut. Marion's surely coming - I'll gie her a 'phone and she'll come early and cut it for us. Right, Well thats the BBQ cleaned oot, ready for action. Wait a meenit, nae charcoal - Ah'll away doon tae Aldis and get a bag - firelighters as well. Nae lighter fluid, mind, too bliddy dangerous for anybody wi' their herr back combed. Wi'a' that herrspray, it'll no be the Red Hat but the Red Heid Society! Mind yer sunglesses. cool.gif
Melody

August26
Marydoll:
Be a good Scot don't buy firelighters, you know all those little pieces of leftover candles, well, chop them up, put about 3 tablespoons in a piece of wax paper, wrap it up, flare the top and store, I put them in a coffe can, save them till we take the grandchildren camping, great fire starters, also for a camp fire, old girl scout trick, and actually we taught the boy scouts how to do it. biggrin.gif

This message is for all of you folks in Canada, would you PLEASE take your Canadian air back, yesterday it was 60 here in the morning, the Weatherman said it was coming down from Canada, this morning it was 56, now at noon it's only 66, we might have to put giant fans along the border, and send your cold air right back, we had to turn off the air conditioner last night it was so cold, now I'm going down the shore on the 15th for three weeks, if it gets cold down there, from your air, then I will have to come up there and sing to all of you, and Heather can tell you that's a real punishment.

stock, as in supplies (can't think of another explanation LOL)
stalk, like a stem, or a stalk of ruhbarb, bean stalk, so you see Jimmy is right, one up for Jimmy, go to the top of the class. biggrin.gif

Melody I like Edinburgh Rock, so could you toss me some across the pond, as for Betty's bathing suit.......................it is an itzy bitzy teeny weenie yellow polka dot bikini, so in the jacuzzi she wanted to stay

Melody:
With all this talk of rock candy, do you think my sister will take a trip to Edinburgh and buy some for me, boy is my mouth watering, remember the puff candy, we used to get chunks of it, that was so good, and here I am on the South Beach diet dry.gif do they make it sugar free?

August
Barbara
August,

That South Beach Diet is fantastic. Both hubby and daughter lost 40 pounds each on that one. I tried it too, but after 2 weeks was very ill. So I do my low fat and watch my family eat nuts and cheese and they salvitate when I chow down on bread. About the ony thing we can all eat for dinner is salads..........lol

I think the South Beach makes alot of sense and have seen my hubbies health improve ten fold. Alot of his aches and pains went away along with his tummy!!!

Good luck to you!!!!!
August26
Barbara:
Oh I agree with you, I feel so much better, so does my husband, yes we eat lots of salads, but we always did, potatoes or pasta were a staple with every meal, and of course bread, since I cut out these foods I'm realizing I have more food allergies, I was always bothered with sinus infections, going from one medication to another, and to the doctors for something stronger, back in June we went to a wedding, I ate the appetizers, made with white flour, avoided the dinner rolls, the next day what a sinus headache, wow, so then to a writing pad, what did I eat that I haven't been eating, we narrowed it down to the white flour, so about a week later, I tried white bread, yep that was it, my blood pressure is now 100/60 I have to go for a cholestrol count but I'm not dreading it like before, we now eat whole wheat whole grain pasta, expensive yes, but you don't need as much of it to fill you, yes we snack on the nuts and low fat cheeses, some of our salads are a meal in themselves.

August
betty2
Best of luck ladies with the diets , something I never could stick to ohmy.gif I just eat what I enjoy but less of it. Have to watch tho I suffer from having too much acid , an naw its no in ma tongue ha ha . Noo the bikine is anither no no I wear a tankini as well as the one piece suits Very modest betty thats me.

Heather
You know Melody I might have been better eating your rock at least I could have blamed that, but eating a pizza, and it breaks your tooth, good grief. I walked out the pizzeria and left the pizza and wine lying on the table with my broken tooth on the plate.

I am still getting kidded about it. I was standing at the gate yesterday when one of my neighbours passed by who was also on the Pilgrimage and asked me how my tooth was, he started laughing at me because I was mumbling through closed lips. The next thing the two of us were laughing our heads off, me with my hand over my mouth of course, I told him I threw it in the Trevi with my coins. laugh.gif
Melody
Ach poor Heather, yer a wee soul. Nothing worse than the loss of a tooth to make one loose one's self confidence! Anything else ye can kind of hide, but yer stuck wi a toothless grin, it's no fair hen, the thing is ye can still sing....and laugh as long as naebudy sees ye! laugh.gif Dae ye know ah don't mind anything much in the dentist except the thought of a tooth being pulled out, although it's not sore makes me want to cry, seriously it does something sad about it.
betty2
sad.gif wherr's ma rock
Melody
Noo Esther you canny be eatin' rock...remember Mr De Mille will no like it in yer closeups laugh.gif
August26
Heather:
Are you getting a new tooth fr Christmas biggrin.gif

Betty, I haven't had acid indigestion since I started this diet, the diet is the reason we didn't eat the lasagne when you were here for dinner, Tommy and I had eggplant rolitini, Bob tried it, but he didn't say if he liked it, actually he was very quiet, maybe he was affected by that Italian dish.

August
Heather
It has been a lovely warm dry weekend until a half hour ago, now the rain is stoating of the streets. I'll just sit here and have a wee drink till it stops. I could be sitting here all night.
Betty what do you have for breakfast, I'll make it and clear up afterwards as long as there is enough for me.

I had the sprinkler going all day yesterday in the back & front garden so the grass would not get dried out, I could have saved myself the bother. sad.gif

August will be laughing her head off now because when she was trying to get me on the IM I was downstairs puting the hose away and I had left the puter on.
Isobel
well guys anybody home.Been working in my wee back yard aw day . Jist fair exausted.This year we lifted aw the grass and put in a big patio and made the rest all tree's and shrubs. Must say its starting to look pretty good. Getting a gate put in on the back fence along with five other neighbours. That way we can walk right through to the park.May be next year i'll be able to sit back and enjoy it.God Betty is there any rum left? A could sure do way a wee one. Ok, ok. i'm no gona leave the glass in the sink .A promise ill wash it up and put it away before a leave. Where is Catherine has she no been in the day.? Dont want her to be talking about me.
August26
Hey Sis:
Boy oh boy do you know me, I was laughing my head off, when I read it was raining, I spoke with David this morning, he was complaining about the weather, I told him it was hotter in Scotland, and that you had to water your lawn, he didn't believe me.

Betty: Last night we went to Ruby Tuesday's for dinner, oh I had a nice drink, Banana & Strawberry Margarita, I think that's how you spell it, it was soooooooooo good, I don't know what kind of alcohol is in it but I'm sure someone on here will tell me, my son makes them with salt around the edge, that I don't like, so I will make a batch and leave it in your fridge, so all will have a drink when they stop by, I'm sure they will wash the glasses. wink.gif
