WP COLLABORATIONS

If I understand correctly, editors are free to read messages between players. So if you and another are working on a WP together, won't the editor/players be able to see your puzzle while you're constructing it?

Nobody is likely to accuse me of cheating, not with my scores.................

No one was accusing you of cheating Mr. Cloggs. And how is Mrs. Cloggs? Oh wait, I meant this as a letter to Santa!

It is indeed just like "fit as a fiddle". A butcher's dog would obviously have plenty of meat scraps and bones, hence "fit as a butcher's dog". Butchers also feature in another favourite of mine, used when speaking about somebody who is very thin. "I've seen more meat on a butcher's pencil".

A skinny person is said to "not have much meat on them", A butcher's pencil, in the days when not everyone was obsessed with hygiene, may well have had some morsels of meat on it.

You're a veggie ? I eat anything that once had a pulse. I like my steak so that a decent vet could get it back on it's feet, rare.

If I was a better cook, I would consider being a vegetarian.

I doubt many people who enter my kitchen would guess i'm a single man, i love to cook. There is so much good local produce available too. I'll be off to the market soon to pick up fresh fruit and veggies, but i doubt the Kentish strawberries will make it home. Kent is known as "the garden of England", we are spoilt here.

We'll be "spoilt" here in a month or so, when all the veges come to be. Hard to beat midwest America for foodstuffs!

Parts of Kent are closer to the continent (Europe) than they are to London, we get French, German and Italian markets too. We have a wonderfully rich coast line, Whitstable oysters are famous. The climate here is now so warm that we can grow things we once could only dream about. Then there are the more traditional strawberries, plums, cherries etc, and later in the year millions of apples.

Sandy, could you send me a few ears of corn, please.

Here in France they offer two puny ears for about $3.50. A can of corn costs 60 cents.

Hmm maybe we could do a corn/cheese trade. Corn in the midwest (which is the best) won't be in for at least a month.

OK, I get the best cheeses at our local farmer's market every Wednesday. However, last week she was sick and I had no cheese whatsoever to hold me over till Friday when she reappears in a neighboring l village. So I hustled to a supermarket with a good selection (attention: supermarket cheeses are often not correctly aged - hers are) and bought three great cheeses she never has, still holding out for her artisan Roquefort on Friday.

This week I told her what great cheese I had enjoyed, and she wasn't at all nice. I sing her praises everywhere, I bring her new customers and then that.

You just not a "people person" are you Andy ? I can't imagine why.

Actually, Dave, I am.

Florence has her moments, but always well-aged cheeses.

Actually, Sandy, raw milk cheese is now permitted in the US (I guess when the Kraft lobbyist wasn't looking).

Only hundreds of years behind the French, Enligsh and Italians now.

I always post about real women, Sandy. Even some that are unreal too.
