Poached in orange juice with a handful of dill( The way I like to do salmon)

I've never had wild salmon that way and I've caught alot of 'er.  I love tuna steaks but I like all my fish open  grilled with a spray of veggy oil and a light coating of Mrs Dash.  I like her cooked over the open coals.

If you ever take me upon my offer I'll grill ya a large very large fillet of fresh chinook salmon and a couple of elk steaks over the open coals for ya to eat...with a couple of three eggs and fried back bacon and some taters...fresh bread wioth dollops of nice good country butter.   Thats just breakfast....you should see what I serve for supper!

Hope you like pepper fried fresh catfish!....thats the best!

There are no FIA World Rally Championship highlights on UK free-to-air tv this year. Channel 5 look to have pulled out.

Who would like to kick up a storm on social media on my behalf please?

If the regs go back to either groups A or B then I'd consider it.

Thank you for your valuable contribution.

I got a freebie subscription to the Telegraph last year.  I noticed this week that one of their advertisers has gone a bit rogue and started advertising things like erectile dysfunction and illegal TV streaming kits.  I know @John Drake is ruthless on this with advertisers on this site so sent them a quick note to let them know, thinking they’d be grateful for the notice of rogue advertiser.

Their reply (paraphrased): Not our problem, try clearing your cookies, also it’s the advertiser’s business what they advertise, not ours.

I suppose it does go with their editorial standards though.

Ah! Blaming someone else for your lack of oversight. Now, why does that set a little bell ringing in the back of my mind?

Serves you right, from that lot I'm surprised you didn't get links to porn sites. (Or as we call them Brexit Info sites)

Not a rant, more of a WTF:

This one comes from a sentencing hearing where a guy had been convicted of smuggling $200 million of cocaine into Australia.

"He said character references had described Jackson as "a caring person who does not have any of the characteristics of a person who would commit the crimes he has committed".

WTF! He doesn't have any of the characteristics of a person who would commit the crimes he has committed? Wouldn't the fact that he committed the crime be one of the main characteristics of "a person who would commit the crimes he has committed?"

If those religious folk are right and what you suffer in this life is a test then $deity will be getting a right earful from me for how much he/she/it has tested my wife over the last seven years. I'll spend eternity punting $deity in the private parts to see if he/she/it likes being "tested".

I don't believe it's a test, God gave us a free will, he rarely intervenes IMO, God has let things develop naturally over billions of years. There is no set date of when we die, when we're born, in the vast majority of cases.

Or he/she/it is wondering why hairless gibbering apes keep demanding his attention and has us on mute so he/she/it can get on with the important stuff.

Either that or is going to take the Earth to the vets to get its mammalian parasite infestation removed and it can go back to being a happy little pet planet again with all the resource sucking creatures removed.

Whenever someone challenges the idea that an all loving, omnipotent and omniscient god wouldn’t allow sh*t to happen the “free will” nonsense is brought out.

Not so different from any other randomly-chosen week of the year, then.

I don’t believe in magic or invisible friends

There are no faries at the bottom of my garden either.

The late great Douglas Adams summed it up thus.

“I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God “for proof denies faith and without faith I am nothing”.
“But,” says Man, “the Babel Fish is a dead giveaway, isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own argument you don’t. QED.”
“Oh, dear”, says God, “I hadn’t thought of that”, and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

I never thought I would criticise an ambulance crew but.....

Today I visited an old folks home. On leaving the building I was trapped in the car park by an ambulance parked in the drive of the home.

The vehicle was blocking the exit. Ten yards directly behind it was an empty space clearly marked " AMBULANCES ONLY". Had the crew parked it there they would have saved themselves 10 yards of walking. The ambulance must have driven in forwards and could have stopped in that empty bay and the crew could have dashed into the buliding. Instead they must have driven in, reversed into the main car park then driven out and blocked the drive. I calculate that that manoeuvre added about 30 seconds to them getting to the patient.

I was trapped for 35 minutes and was then late for a visit to my next patient.

When the crew came out they were unaccompanied by any patients. Obviously the emergency was nullified by them.

I challenged them and asked why they had not used the designated space. " it was an emergency they said and parking in that space would have added 5 minutes to the time to get in the building!!!"

I pointed out that that was clearly rubbish and they actually had added time to their response by the actions they had taken. 

The driver asked why I was criticising him when they were trying to save lives. That,of course was to demonstrate their importance ( which I  do not dispute in anyway).

I bit my tongue and quietly waited another two or three minutes whilst they kept me trapped. Of course they may have been filling in paperwork or whatever was necessary but I have no doubt that instead of moving the ambulance and doing that non essential task they took the opportunity to pay me back for daring to criticise them.

Last night of my holiday with a bunch of friends and we've got to watch the union. Every single possible cliche about union has happened tonight. I've had to go to bed before I ruin a nice holiday.

I'm a failed atheist. I always come back to, where did earth come from? There must have been something before earth, or the big bang if you prefer.

Why?

If the answer is God must have created it, then just like the chicken and the egg the question is where did God come from?

If the answer to that is God always was, then the argument that the makings of the universe always was is just as valid.
