Thanks for the info on the Irish Breakfast. But now I want to know: what is black or white pudding which one would eat for breakfast? I know I should look this up myself, but it\'s more fun to ask you all. If I get to Ireland while I still have teeth, I\'m going to have an irish breakfast every day...and nothing else the rest of the day!!

Good morning, everyone. Update on the great mouse hunt--the mouse was trapped. His downfall was peanut butter. Next time, we\'ll have to try the chocolate. We\'d never heard of using chocolate.

A hearty 26 degrees here with a healthy north wind blowing through any seam not throroughly joined. Windows frosted over; heater on continuously. I detest winter. But at least it\'s not raining. Glad your rain has stopped, Mike. Do you live in landslide area? I can\'t see to drive in the rain.

Small family gatherings don\'t seem the same after past large gatherings. I am one of 9 children, so holidays were once a bit wild. Now, we have only one child so you\'d think after 30 years I\'d be accustomed to smaller gatherings. But even with the grands, it still seems too small. I like it best when there are so many people here there is no room to swing a cat. (Now where does that expression come from?)

Christmas has been put on the back burner in our house. Firstly, Johnny and Magda are going to Poland…. (They have to spend a Christmas with her parents also – it’s only fair, and they were torn between staying here or going) I put on my best smile, made my eyes twinkle and said if they didn’t book the flights, I would book them myself. So that leaves just ‘The Boss’, Ian and me for Christmas day. Ian’s partner Miriam, will have dinner with her parents (they live about 5 miles away), and then she will come over on Christmas night. My sisters will come to visit also on Christmas night, and Pat’s brothers will call round, but I will still miss the one that’s missing so much. I am used to cooking for big numbers, how do you cook for just 3 people??? I wish it was over…. No Christmas shopping done, no Christmas tree up, no presents bought, I just can’t get my head around it!!!! But I will…….

Hi Mr. Mies and Mies. No snow yet?? Are you happy or sad about that? I think you secretly like the snow…. We had snow on the hills last weekend. It was magical to see it – if only for one day - but we have hard frosts at the moment. Had floods last week also. Weather goes from one extreme to another.



Webbie conas ata tu? Will Santa Claus come to visit you this year? I hope so. I hope he comes to visit everyone on the GB, and brings them lots of nice presents. (Including me).

Patricia, yes – ailing relatives - you don’t know the half of it. My sister-in-law, (my other brother’s ex wife – but we kept her as our sister), fell on ice this morning on her way into school and has broken and dislocated her ankle. She is going to have surgery in the morning. My brother’s present partner (whom we love to bits also), has had a full mastectomy last week, and re-construction at the same time, and is now facing months of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.



Annette, I wish I knew what your’ interrobang’ is? You will have to explain it to us, because we don’t understand all the funny symbols. How is all the family? Will Franka be home for Christmas? Is Robert still practicing his music? And are you still busy with baking, and gardening and working?? Take care.

All the talk about cauliflower, bacon, mash etc., really has my tummy rumbling.... and now I\'ll have to go and cook some tomorrow. Every recipe sounds great... I might just cook the whole lot together.



Micilin, glad Seamus got over the op ok. I’d hate if Val had to have any surgery. Haven’t had him neutered yet and he is 2 years old now…. I just can’t bear the thought of it. What should I do Mick? Is Seamus neutered?



Phillis, your terriers are a ‘holy terror’ (that’s a real Irish saying). They let mice run round while they sleep?? A little bit of chocolate in the trap will have the mice in no time….

Hi everyone,

Well, lots of frost and ice here at the moment. My blue car was whiter than white this morning, and the darn thing wouldn\'t start!!! And it was the one morning I needed to be at work early, to get the mess from yesterday sorted out before the doors opened. Got to work 5 minutes AFTER the doors opened, and had a bigger mess to face into. Anyway it all got sorted...



Liz, congrats on your new grandson Byron. What a great name. I love it. I am so jealous of all you grandmothers……. I want a grandbaby….. But no one is listening.

Enjoy your trip to Sydney, and give Byron a big kiss from all of us.. Is Jack in Ireland now? Will he be here for Christmas? And what happened Jack 2’s leg? I missed all that but I hope it gets better soon.

Mick, that\'s great news about Seamus. Good to have him home for the holidays. He will be relieved to be at home again. Usually they don\'t like the vets. I\'m pretty sad but I couldn\'t convince Mr A to go to The Lakes with me in the next year though that issue isn\'t off the table yet. I\'ll send you a mail with some details during the week.

Phillis, mice like chocolate more than cheese. I speak from experience as my daughter had pet mice over years.

For an Irish breakfast, in my experience, you will get sausages, black and white pudding, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms, fried eggs and toast, corn flakes and muesli, fruit, coffee, tea, milk... Did I forget anything, Webbie?

Happy for you, Mick, that Seamus is on the mend. Creatures are just like kids next to my heart.

Webbie and Pat-I\'ll be pleased to forward any \"sprouts\" you may desire. Just the smell puts me off, much less the taste. Bean Sprouts, not so bad. But Brussel sprouts belong in Brussels, imho.

The mouse remains on the loose thus far. I noticed the hubby has a trap set in his office. My money is on the mouse as I figure the terrier will find the cheese first.

Okay, today\'s question is: what is a \"proper Irish breakfast\"? It\'s a phrase I read recently. We consider a continental breakfast light fare, croissant and fruit with coffee or tea. But never heard of an \"Irish breakfast\".

Ayup me ol\' muckers

Just phoned the vet and am picking Seamus up in about an hour, so it seems the surgery went well.

Phillis - The cruciate ligament is in the stifle - the animal equivalent of the human knee -and if you have ever torn one you\'ll know it can be p**k painful.

Never knew the humble cauli could be so much fun.

Pat is correct (isn\'t she always) brassicas are super foods and are particularly beneficial to older men and I make sure I get my greens at least thrice a week.

Annette - Any plans to visit The Lakes in 2010?

Mieses - Pleased y\'all missed the big freeze.

Another manky grey damp day here with wintry showers predicted for the end of the week.

I hope Seamus will be fine, Micilin. Has he been doing too much dancing to injure himself that way? Don\'t let him see Dermot\'s FlashMob video, he\'ll want to join in, and he really shouldn\'t right now.

Mar\'s partying, Treasa\'s taking care of ailing relatives, Liz is going to Sidney and Mies and I are running flat out to try to keep up with Christmas. It\'s a busy time of year.

Y\'all Take Care. I\'m doing shopping this week, I hope I survive it.

See Ya.

Yum. Cauliflower recipe gets better and better, and it\'s good for you, too. All those cruciferous veggies, cauliflower and broccoli and cabbage and Brussels Sprouts are especially healthy. I have a cauliflower and brocolli salad recipe, nice for summertime and super good, keeps well in the fridge, and great for taking to a covered dish supper, a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe with raisins and pine nuts, I think I\'ve sent it around, but if anybody wants it, tell me and I\'ll send it to you again. I believe I could live on it exclusively, with some sliced tomatoes and a good crunchy bread.

Mornin\'...

Loved that Cork FlashMob video, Dermot. Looked like great fun. Thank you for bringing it to us, and thank you, too, Webbie.

I understand Mies objections to your getting the gun out in the house to use on mice, Mr. Mies, nobody likes to have holes shot in the floors...but surely mousetraps aren\'t banned in WA, are they? You were just kidding, right?

That\'s funny, Phillis, 3 dogs who are supposed to be bred to catch small varmints can\'t do it. My Ms Cat won\'t catch mice either, though she\'s hell on chameleons.

Annette, I saw those icons, brilliant. We need a music one, how did you do that? Ignore Webbie\'s giant letters and upsidedown writing, he\'s just showing off. I love the interrobang...is it really on your keyboard??!!! I never heard of it until just lately.

Hehehehe, Mr Mies, that\'s funny... a trapping ban... and now the mice will play in your house. You made me hungry though I just had breakfast. I have to look back for that cauliflower recipe. Can I go to the next banquet for you?

I was trying to create that \'interrobang\' here on the GB for Pat and some new smilies too. Just the half of them turned out well. I have that interrobang on my computer and that means Webbie\'s font type doesn\'t support it. But I will try some more again and we will see what we get. ...hmmmm if Webbie doesn\'t throws me out of the GB as he needs all the space here for his own HUGE LETTERS. hehehehe

See you later.

Seasons greetings to everyone. Hope you all are doing well. Very cold in Cork this morning. I'm going to attach a link to a video on Youtube taken in Cork City Centre on the 14th November last. This event was organized for The National Campaign for the Arts. I think we need more of these events to make us all smile a little. Perhaps if its OK with Webbie he will make it one of his so famous Cleeks!

Phillis-The cauliflower recipe is sounding better each day. Mies doesn\'t want the hunter instinct in me to come out. She\'s afraid of me shooting holes in the floor, we have a trapping ban in Washington & I can\'t break the law. At 40f it will still be double our high today, Tuesday it was -3f & I\'m reading a weather alert for a storm tomorrow night & Tuesday morning. I guess sn*w is on the way.

Our banquet was great, I ate way to much as usual. We don\'t go to buffets very often, because I have no will power when it comes to food.
