    Advice, Please

    Some friends of ours are giving up there steel narrow boat and are intent on buying a Broads cruiser. They have seen a 35ft 1968 Ernest Collins "hybrid" (Glass hull, wooden superstructure) and have asked for my advice but unfortunately I have no experience of such a combination. So can anyone help, please, with things to look for which may affect one of these classics?

    Wintertime Cooking

    When we've baked FB pies in the oven we have never had any problems with soggy pastry. We had one a couple of weeks ago and it was just fine.

    What a delightfull vid, Jean; it very well reminded me of our own long love affair with our Broads.

    Third Lake Loathing Crossing

    I do hope that that was intended as a "punny", Chris! This is supported by the BA, no less. http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/politics/lake-lothing-third-crossing-given-broads-committee-support-1-5685086

    The Poppy Appeal

    Both my Grandfathers were gassed seperately in the Somme and neither lived beyond 50 years, Ian. So I wear my poppy with both Prida and Sadness that I never knew them.

    Another One Bites The Dust

    The unfortunate thing in all of this is that we no longer have James' voice on the committee and will be the poorer for it.

    Craft Beer

    Here in mid-South-Norfolk we are exceedingly lucky in that our small village of some 650 inhabitants has a pub with SEVEN real ales. Yes, Howard, SEVEN! The Hockham Eagle has gone from strength to strength over the last few years since our landlord bought it from Punch. His pricings seem unique in that ALL his seven real ales cost £3.50... Whether it's Adnams Southwold, Woodfordes Wherry, GK Abbot or the new Adnams Two Bays. Here's a couple of pics from last night: Everything else (ciders, lagers & Guiness) is £3.80. Oh, and Ghostship non-alcoholic (0.5%) at £3.00!

    Wayford Bridge Hotel

    I rang up a month ago and quoted NBN. No problems but only on the B&B rate nowadays. (They used to let you have it on DB&B).
