Excellent Blog Suzzzzzzzzz we needed a KnightTime blog and the change in the seasons is just the time. I can imagine you two line dancing.... 4 left feet.:))

so the run down from this end reads as follows:-

Food: I poached a lovely piece of smoked haddock last night, as a treat to end the week, and served it with buttered mash Potatoes, small dumplings and winter peas.

Drink: Found a new local beer I love called Dirty Tackle, by Wychwood brewery in Witney Oxfordshire. Sweeter than most real ales, not so hoppy. Very Drinkable.

Sounds:. Like you Suzzzz the birds are feeling the temperature rise warming their feathers and are filling the hedgerows with courtship. Most vocal is the Mistle Thrush i can hear behind me as i write...declaiming from the top of a distant conifer. They are often called Storm Birds, as they tend to do this, in the sunny calm before and after a sudden heavy Shower of rain.

Sights: Sunny sunny sunlight, through banks of fluffy deep purple clouds, daffodils starting to tip with yellow, roadmenders filling in Potholes.

Music: Watched these great Swedish sisters sing at the Jericho Tavern the other night. Wonderful......

I toasted Sir Jack of America last night sitting in slight drizzle overlooking the Mississippi at Whitehouse. Two more blissful and challenging days!

Food: Whatever the Jesuits supply, plus my bag of custom trail mix and oranges.

Drink: No fridge or bar, so Red Wine. Last night a bottle of Magnificat meritage, tonight a 2005 Paradux!

Sights: The Cave, Barges on the Mississipi, Incense during Benediction.

Sounds: Silence, Birds, Barges, Distant Trains, Bells, Excellent Lectures by our Retreat Master Fr. Casey from Boston College, Whitehouse Mashup on my iPod with earbuds at night drinking wine overlooking the Mississippi.

Books: Riding the Dragon & Crossing the Desert by Robert J Wicks (Zen Catholic Christian)

Sir B may want to try the Dirty Tackle - as he just bought his fishing license for 2010!

We saw Alice in Wonderland last night - a new appreciation for the story since we have walked and sat where the author lived : )

I actually liked this version better than the original disjointed writings - thought I know I shouldn't speak against such a classic!
That's why we have so many versions I suppose - we're all so very different

some might even say odd?

Working on a woodworking / table project for Lady Suzanne's mother...

Warm weather reminds me it's time to start mowing lawns (or cutting crass, or however you say it).

Also, need to rescue our '64 Buick LeSabre out of winter storage and cruise.

Yes, I do have my fishing license and Sir Scott has already contacted me wanting to go out on the boat and fish.

SIghts and Sounds: Time to set up a nice firepit area in the backyard, build a bonfire and enjoy the stars, an ale, perhaps the sounds of an owl with Lady Suzanne.

Book: I've been thinking about finishing "John Adams on Revolutionary Management" which I've started several times.
