Virtual Bar and Cafe

I have today tried to reopen the original virtual bar and cafe so members can have a light hearted chat in these difficult times. Unfortuneately it is not appearing as Recently Active so I will rebrand and relaunch here!

Apologies for any inconvenience caused! ☹️

Hooray, and best of all the bar won't be liable for any business rates! 😊

Excellent news.

I have just made a quiche. I sent out my elder son to forage in the wilds of north London and he did not fail me.

He came back with 1/2 dozen EGGS🎉

All is not lost. I walked to the garden centre with my son.

They have a small shop selling fresh vegetables and loads of eggs. Just off the beaten track.

Lovely to be out in the fresh air. The birds singing, the blossom out on the Blackthorn bushes the trees coming into leaf.

Pussy willow and catkins too.

A new member Tracesteele62 introduced herself in the original cafe and bar but because of inconsistent behaviour I have relaunched. Here is her post:

"Hello and thank you for the invite. I am not used to going out alone lol but I'm sure a virtual cup of tea and cake with a chat or two will go down well. I used to be on a lot stronger until I fell apart. They put my heart back together again now I think I am the bionic woman, good to be here. I think I am going to enjoy the company. Thank you for directing me as I'm not a great Internet user ."

Please make her welcome!

Note: anyone stealing sanitiser or toilet rolls will be barred. Thank you for your cooperation!

Just spotted the final sentence, just tiptoeing back to the facilities with the sanitiser and toilet rolls, Ackward! 😮

What about eggs and tinned tomatoes?

Odd combination😂

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star
in reply to stevejb1810

Ideal ingredients for making Shakshuka. It's reasnobly healthy as well.

Cook tinned tomatoes in frying pan with a little oil until they reduce down and thicken, put on top of toast and fry egg and place on top. Delcicious!

My husband’s just made an 18 mile round trip to give eldest daughter one of our tins of tomatoes as there are none to be found anywhere.

BREAKING NEWS ...

John Travolta was hospitalized for suspected COVID-19, he had chills they were multiplying and he was losing control, but doctors now confirm that it was only Saturday Night Fever, and they assure everyone that he is Staying Alive.

It's so weird what's missing like tinned tomatoes, not a loaf of bread in Tesco today !! Oh and No Eggs, Beer going in short supply. One thing the supermarkets aren't worried about Cash Flow

So when we were on holiday last week, Costa Rica(!), I was considering taking the two toilet rolls home as I knew we didn’t have any at home and I read there were none available.

Is this ethical? Are they mine?

Someone phoned me yesterday and spent all the time talking about risk and shortages. I am sure it prolonged my migraine! ☹️

I’ll have the healthiest ham & cheese toastie followed by the healthiest hot chocolate you can rustle up please. If anyone fancies a game of New Market then I will be right back to my childhood holidays in a flat in a little place called Sandsend nr. Whitby. This is my happy place which I have every intention of visiting this Summer!

PS I hope your tables are 2 metres apart!!

Hi, I’ll have a chilled white wine please. It was my birthday yesterday, guess what my name is, my mother had no imagination. One friend gave me 4 new laid eggs another gave me an expensive bar of soap wrapped in surgical gloves, another gave me an extending backscratcher, not so weird as I’m diabetic and my feet itch in bed, thoughtful gifts from nice friends.

I have toilet rolls, mind you they have been in loft for years, probably find they have been chewed up by the mice.

How about a G&T with fresh passion fruit please. Oh and lots of ice.

Anyway, a coffee and naughty croissant for breakfast.

Hope everybody has a good day!

At least the croissants here are calorie free. Think I will go for a mug of tea and bacon sandwich! 😁

Just walked the dog and sitting down to my coffee. Always the best few minutes of the day. We have company today as my wife is working from home. Hope everyone is keeping safe.

Is anyone planning to make use of the supermarkets' "elderly and vulnerable people" shopping hour (or two hours for some)?

in reply to WGM1

I probably will for a small basket of things but I think I'll go with click and collect for the 'big shop' - next one due second week of April (I try to do a monthly big shop rather than a weekly).

Usually I’m out and about all the time. I haven’t been able to exercise lately so I’ve been to the local RSPB sites, shopping, walking round shopping centres etc. When I’m in I like the silence. However now we’re self isolating I’ve been listening to the radio and find the Heart 80s channel the best. (Who’d have thought?) it makes me feel happier than I’ve been since my heart attack last year. I dance around the apartment and, much to my husbands displeasure, sing along. 😂 I can recommend listening to music 🎶.

Royal Navy pre August 1971 Sippers just a tiny sip from a glass of Grog passing round the Mess Table and God help you if you took a Gulper ( a Bigger Sip ) when it was Sippers. Queens is what was left in the Rum fanny when every one had, drunk their Tot , Which was then passed around normally for sippers only.

If you had invited an Oppo round for a Half a Tot Most other Matelots in your mess deck would offer your Oppo either a Sippers or Gulpers. Oppo being Friend sometimes from another Ship who maybe you hadn't seen for a while !! Now that is Memory Lane

The Highways Agency found over 200 dead crows on the M4 near Bridgend recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be from vehicular impacts. However, during analysis it was noted that varying colours of paints appeared on the ...bird's beaks and claws. By analysing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with lorrys, while only 2% were killed by cars.

The Agency then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviourist quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger. They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "Lorry"

Strange how Governments respond to the corona virus..... warning do not read if you are offended by bad language:

The UK and Australian Government Responses

We the English are feeling the pinch in relation to Covid-19 and have therefore raised the threat level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.”

Soon, though, the level may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.”

The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out.

The virus may then be re-categorized as “Tiresome” or in extreme circumstances “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let's Get the B*st**d.”

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its alert level from “No worries” to “She'll be alright, Mate.”

Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we may need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far, no situation has ever warranted use of the final escalation level.

Do you just have straight tomato juice? I make with with BigTom as it saves adding Worcestershire sauce, pepper, etc. But for a nightcap I will go for Laphroaig - double with one ice cube.

Mum liked Cherry Brandy but a bit sweet for me.

I do know how to make one from scratch but Big Tom makes it all so much simpler. In the States I used a similar product called V-8.

Interesting about the single malt, I've taken to a wee nip before bed when the news has been especially dire. I tell myself as long as it stays a wee nip and purely for medicinal purposes, it's all good ;)

Cherry Brandy. Hmmm. That might be nice, actually, I have a sweet tooth. I'll have to give it a go once this virus nightmare ends. My husband is tee-total and has no clue I've a private cabinet (big woo, a bottle of Laphroaig, a Stoli, and a nice merlot I'm saving for a special occasion), I'll see if I can find a small bottle of the Cherry Brandy to taste test. Thank-you!

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star
in reply to Sunnie2day

V8 is a vegetable juice. It is stocked by my local Waitrose.

The nearest Waitrose is a 40 mile round trip drive. I miss V-8 (the slogan was something about eight veg in a bottle, iirc) as it's not stocked at the supermarkets where I shop and the cost online is shocking. Big Tom is working - but don't tell my husband I've bought another bottle of Stoli!

Hi Michael, different topic but you are well connected over there. Do you know what is happening with cardiac rehab in the UK? Is it still being delivered? Our Canberra hospitals have stopped delivering it from what I have been told. Hope you are well. Cheers Al

Hi Cardiac

I know they have stopped in Dorset both NHS and Dorset Heart Support Group. Michael may have more information .

Many hospitals had already stopped them over a week ago but last Friday's announcement closing pubs, bars, restaurants, gyms, etc. meant any still running were closed as well. I think most hospitals have now stopped visiting except for end of life (but not Coronavirus). The majority of outpatients are now cancelled or done via phone.

Thanks Michael. My contacts in the USA are reporting the same. Stay safe

You could do a half and half with sherry and vodka but not pints like Frank just a measure of each.

One mixed drink I had years ago was a pint of cyder with a double vodka and a double Jagermeister added! Only had the two!

I need to administer something to calm my corona nerves but that jaegameister contains deer blood and I am a pescatarian maybe I will try a sambuca if it all didn't taste like petrol vinegar or cough syrup I will go now you are driving me to drink

MichaelJH

It doesn't contain deer blood - that's Internet rubbish! Best avoid scrumpy as they start fermentation with a dead rat!

No innuendo! Google it please.

It's true but no longer allowed under EU rules. Next year?

My husband decided to move the router Saturday. In the process he stepped on the connector end, snapping but not completely breaking off that little clip thingie. He knew it was bad. He bent the clip thingie back into place and plugged it in. Of course it didn't make a proper connection. Of course he didn't tell me about moving the router...

Me - can you get online?

Him - yes, no problems

Me - (a few hours later) I still can't get online, can you re-boot the router?

Him - I've been having problems too.

Me - (ten minutes later) Still nothing...

Him - The 'Net is down. Probably all the people streaming and working online. I'll try to re-boot again later.

Me - (the next morning) We're still not up. Can you try re-set?

Him - Hmmm. Re-set doesn't seem to be helping.

Me - Have you tried shock re-boot?

Me - (several hours later) Would you PLEASE get that bl--dy thing working?!

Me - (this morning and after several hours becoming increasingly unpleasant to be around and talking to the phone IT guy) That's it, out of my way!

And that's when I found the broken connector end.

I'll share, this is the ambrosia of the gods you've heard about. '82 was an especially good year - my youngest (son) was born 26 March 1982 and we brought him home three days later (my heart thing meant extra time in hospital after delivery). The only thing we could find to celebrate his first birthday in '83 was a bottle of the Grand Cru and honestly I've only rarely drunk anything else since. Well, the occasional Stoli anything (mimosa, screwdriver, Bloody Mary) but mainly Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. Their merlot is wonderful but the Grand Cru is exquisite.

Hi all, what's happening at the v cafe tonight, anybody got a song to cheer everyone up? Had the ambulance out earlier but fine now. I was wheezing and phoned for some advice from the lovely bhf nurses. 111 later then an ambulance. I had really bad angina and the wheezing. I think with the conary artery spasms the longer it went on the worse it got. They checked me out and said all clear. They gave me a choice wether or not to go to the hospital, but knowing how long these pains last I decided not to go. They said that I know my own body. Anyway I'm fine now just tired . Xx love to everyone xx Sheena

Hope you're OK. Probably not the bestest time to be in hospital if you can help it x

Yes, I was gutted, really dont want to go and be there on my own. X

Glad to hear you're feeling better now and hopefully after a good night's sleep you'll be even better tomorrow xx

How many days out of date is it safe to eat a box of Ferrero Rocher? Just asking for a friend.

Tell your 'friend' if the chocolate isn't going white it's still good.

Er, and if your 'friend' is really desperate, even if it's going white and perhaps even smells a bit on the stale side, it's still safe.

Yes. I admit it - I've been where your 'friend' is, eaten the chocolates and am still here to tell the tale.
