then a picture of a tortoise at one end and a hare at the other. So Japanese.

At least the symbols are easy to understand...

....they could've been in Mandarin script

Automatics aren't my personal choice but I have driven them and cab see the atraction for some.

While cycling along the Leeds Liverpool canal yesterday, just outside Leeds, we had the pleasure of seeing a Great White Egret.

It stood and watched us pass only a metre or so away.

What an honour.

I knew they were migrating north due to the warming oceans, but I thought the Leeds Liverpool canal was a bit narrow for such a large predator. Then I read "Egret"

Considering that the Egret is the same size as a Grey Heron I'm impressed how they fly along a narrow(ish) canal.

I suppose a larger raptor would struggle, and the fish wouldn't be big enough to support...

Currently in the Pyrenees having been over three Cols today. Lots of cyclists but not so many motorbikes. Saw a British registered old Triumph next to an old BSA at Col d'Aspin.
Time to turn north again now.

Hereís a tip for the male chefs out there: after chopping up chilli peppers donít scratch your nether regions afterwards. Aaaargh!

Are you sure? I just grabbed the nearest tube of cream, I think it was moisturiser! Did the trick though.

Next time wear gloves, or rub oil on your hands then wash them. Soap and water isn't enough.

If your finished dish is too hot then drink milk or have a piece of chocolate. Beer or water has no effect.

Milk only really works beforehand by coating the inside of the mouth.
Sugar is good to rid any residual burning, hence the chocolate. Also capsaicin is alkali so anything acidic would likely help (not that I recommend chugging vinegar).

Thanks folks, I was given the chillies by a friend who grew them on an allotment; they were quite small so I livened up a prawn risotto with two. The consensus was one would have been enough! I still have a few left the family are delighted to hear. Gloves sounds a good plan Gwyn.
