    Once again this year, I’ve had requests for my Vodka Christmas Cake recipe so here goes. Please keep in your files as I am beginning to get tired of typing this up every year! (Made mine this morning!!!!) 1 cup sugar, half pound butter, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 cup water, 1 tsp. salt , 1 cup brown sugar, Lemon juice, 4 large eggs, Nuts, 1......bottle Vodka, 2 cups dried fruit 4 cups self raising fl our. Sample a cup of Vodka to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Vodka again to be sure it is of the highest quality then Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point, it is best to make sure the Vodka is still OK. Try another cup just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the fruit up off the floor, wash it and put it in the bowl a piece at a time trying to count it. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver Sample the Vodka to test for tonsisticity. Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something. Check the Vodka. Now shit shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the fekin window. Finish of the Vodka and wipe the counter with the fekin cat. merry xmas

    And that's exactly how I and some others read the statement. If we read it wrongly then at least we got the point, which some might say is just as useful a skill as being able to pull incorrectly worded language apart to point out the mistakes.

    It didn't work out well. To fair, the chap jumped into a frying pan. But, I know people who started businesses and then things went pear shaped with the economy. Life can do that. You've got to take the knocks, it's not all plain sailing. Not everyone has a safety net of such proportions. He's still fairly lucky. The laws are there, but not all have a case. I don't think the choice to resign was necessarilly on option not to favour. On balance. Sorry, got to go. Will get back.

    Can one assume you dont appreciate Mrs Melly's take on London. Well I was born there it was my home for twenty years and I think its a shit hole. Been away 40 years now and every time I go back to visit Mother it gets shittier. I dont know you. You are probably a very nice chapess. But I know a shit hole when I see one. I have lived in some of the worlds biggest. London does qualify.

    Now, now.....this is the life I chose out of my beliefs. At least I'm living the way I learn, instead of just talking. And I'm fully aware it's not for everyone. But I'm amazed how helpless people are when there's no button to press or tap to turn.

    It's truly 'orrible up North under no circumstances venture up here......the Dales and the NY Moors are veritable slums.....and as for the Lake District and Nortumbria, hell holes.... nothing less. Anyway Tim doesn't Live in the North he lives in the East Midlands at the moment and that is grim.........

    Salopgal....make whatever decisions keep you 'afloat' for the time being...these decisions do not need to be permanent ones, and at this stage of your life are probably best being just 'survival' decisions. Whichever way you go now, or later, things can, and inevitably will, change. Allow for that...and try and look forward to that aswell. Support often comes from places you least expect it, at the times you least expect aswell, so keep your options open, don't rule anything out except things that are bad for you, keep your chin up, and be proud to be the survivor of a bad situation. This time next year will be a lifetime's difference to right now, with all the turmoil you are currently experiencing....look ahead, and just see what happens. Good luck with those decisions!

    I'm with George94 on this, reckon some people can't stand the peace of an autumn morning so go off to narrowboatworld looking for something to moan about.

    Why do CWF discussions so frequently degenerate into silly squabbles? My theory is that most people aren't really suited to the idyllic, low-stress, back-to-nature, peaceful, life that the canals are said to provide. With the birds singing outside, the willows weeping, the water gently lapping on the hull, the typical NB owner is within, hammering the life out of his keyboard and sending vitriolic messages to CWF and (VERY occcasionally) NBW. The truth is that these people MISS the high-pressure, testosterone-fuelled, normal world, and want to create virtual-reality mini-conflicts on their computer screens to compensate. So, another illusion shattered. Not only is living on a boat MUCH more expensive than living on land, but if you thought you'd escape the office bear-garden, think again.
