The Harrow Way - 10.05.2021

   photo

Quite a pleasant evening tonight. Not quite the sunset I'd hoped for, but still very nice to get out.

I've used duck duck go extensive scientific and mathematical methods to estimate the number of leaves on a mature beech tree. The number? Around a quarter of a million, give or take a few. The beech trees in my photos sometimes make it seem as if it's raining leaves. Magic!


Sweets! - 09.05.2021

   food

Had a lovely time reminiscing about chocolate bars and sweets today with Tina, Carol and Ken. I'm no longer going to eat any confectionery younger than me! A Bounty Bar will be ok, but not, unfortunately, a Picnic. A surprising number of these have origins in the USA, but we'll ignore that and list them anyway.

Here's a list of all that I can find:

1612 Pontefract Cakes
1864 Jelly Babies (originally Unclaimed Babies)
1866 Fry’s Chocolate Cream Bar
1869 Kendal Mint Cake
1881 Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles
1899 Liquorice Allsorts
1902 Fry’s Milk Chocolate (5 Boys)
1905 Cadbury’s Dairy Milk
1908 Toblerone
1909 Wine Gums
1910 Walnut Whip

Danny - a YouTube Sensation - 29.04.2021

   video

YouTube constantly throws up interesting, niche and quirky content. Danny seems to be the current flavour of the month. Dive into his channel, settle down with him and his portable table and chair, and savour the northern charm and culinary excellence which runs though all his videos. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm...

If you watched this, now imagine Danny taking his table and chair abroad. India, USA, Japan, France - the possibilities are endless. Please do, Danny, once we are able to travel again.

A great photographer and a fascinating documentary featuring a man full of wisdom near the end of his life. Marvellous stuff.
