The days are growing longer and the temperature hit the 25*C mark today. It was our previous queen Juliana's birthday, and so a national holiday over here. Most people take this opportunity to litter the streets with rubbish in a sorely needed attempt to make a few spare pennies in times of crisis. What did I get? A can of lobster soup good until June 2016, some dutch military sew-on's to give to friends in Russia, a stolen "No Trespassing" road sign that I gave to my son, and an ancient minute cast-iron carpenters tool to mark degrees on timber. And a healthy sun-tan. Had my avocado tree been growing on the Sunny South Coast or in Cornwall or in Brittany, France I think it would have survived this winter like it did 12 winters already. Sadly, however an unexpected frost in February ruined my dreams of lying under an avocado to be struck on the head by a falling fruit and inventing a solution to the world's crisis. Stringed up the high E on the guitar again. It supposed to have steel strings but I prefer nylon. Sounds better and the steel ones cut my fingers. As for music check out Gomez. Seen them twice now at a 10 year interval. One of the best vocalists ever. Free download of the third of their live series: http://www.gomeztheband.com/liveseries/freela/ Planning to visit Russia again in a few weeks, as yet no idea how that will turn out. Over to you drum, greets, Mike.

Hmmm....  Seems I've to visit Peachyforum to get educated.

Did not know we have a (sunny) south coast in Holland.  Or was Flanders flooded...?  News spreads slow in our area...

Rain, rain and more rain....methinks the hosepipe ban is a result of decades of out-of-date water maintenance and no investment, one area in which the dutch could be considered the best in the world. Either that or if there's not enough water simply blow up the dikes. So the dutch government fell, and judging by the signs there won't be a new one until September. Not as bad as Belgium of course, but in times of recession you need to be able to make decisions fast. I really who pays the politicians to take 3 months summer holiday? Ludwig van Wilders? Speaking of gardening, found recipes for nettle soup and dandelion butter. Will help keep the weeds down. That and KVAS to get rid of the old stale bread. Friend Alex has booked me for a role in the invasion of Korea in a few weeks. 1000 loonies from the US, China and Russia participating, using tanks, armed cars, amphibious vehicles and helicopters. Thanks Alex. To be safe I asked to a translator interrogating (female) captives. I guess I will have to learn how to use a Kalachnikov. Vodka, by the way is not allowed. Looking for a sponsor. Wonder what to fill in on the visa request form. Visiting UK SSC in the summer, prolly one week only, mit T and S and Jessi. Laterz....

Hi Hunter......I would never do that Smoking. Its a old trick, to toughen up skin, use surgical spirit on cotton wool just wipe gently daily, a lot of hikers etc used to do it prior to long expiditions. Many guitarists do the same. Drum Cool

...or simply play more guitar ;) Today the fame-girls were offline, first time in more than several years. Server problems or maybe they did not pay the rent. Time will tell. So no updates. Their clandestine following must be 1000x larger than their members. Noticed you got enough rain to swamp the entire SSC, what the hell happened to it all? The reservoirs are still not full. I suggest you set up a water reservoir in da garden and connect to an irrigation system. Cancelled Russia. No time / money. Maybe in the summer. Been watching the UK political antics and the Olympic flame. Where on earth did they get the money from to send the flame from Greece to London? Or the fuel for that matter. European Union? Anyhows I guess it will make Boris happy. Updated Alex domain vandych today. He's not been online for some time now. No news from yg. 4 days holiday until Monday so maybe OB update. T sends her greets. S and Jessi still in bed. Mike... (Can someone tell me where the text-edit tools are hidden to parse the text and give them some colour? I'm using Google Chrome. Thanks!)

That's kinda hideous. I installed Chrome because my versions of IE, firefox and Opera did not work well with Peachy. Peachy does look ok using Chrome. Why is the editor not compatible with the supported browsers?

I do not have time to re-learn html for this purpose.

I shall try updated versions of firefox and Opera, but I really think this should be fixed forum-side.

Easy option would be to get rid of all those 'pirate' op systems you've installed over the years Smoking. Peachy in the main works fine mit Linux and Fox......but then i dont do 'strange' things ??. Hazy sun today, few clouds about, rumour has it that weather might improve end of next week. The flame is carried in a thing like a miners safety lamp, so a one pound tin of lighter fuel should do it, anyway the Princess Royal was a Girl Guide....must have a box of matches!. Cool

Thanks for the edit funky. Are you going to edit all my posts (regarding the colors?). I know basic html and can handle that perfectly, but I seriously do not think that is the way to make a forum user-friendly.

@drum: no pirate stuff here. Most people like me (and you as I have understood) do not use Linux, and firefox doesn't work 100% in the main either.

Again, I think this should be fixed forum-side, not user-side. my last penny on this issue.

Stinging Nettle Soup

Ingredients: one onion, two nurds of garlic, 2 potatoes, one liter of vegetable bouillon, 20 gram margarine, olive oil and two handfuls of nettles. Salt, pepper, sour-cream and one handful of faith.

Wash the nettle leaves carefully to make sure there are no bugs on the underneath. Nettles are particularly loved by klingons.

Put the margarine in a deep frying-pan, when hot add two small lugs of olive oil. Add the onions, shredded and bashed garlic. After 2-3 minutes add the nettles roughly cut and the potatoes in small peachy cubes. Add the vegetable bouillon (I make mine from the water left over after boiling other vegetables) and leave to boil gently for 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Blast with a staff-mixer. Add salt and pepper to taste and sour cream and enjoy!! :)

We usually add as well 2 chopped celery-stalks, a handfull of white rice, and above all fresh grated nutmeg according to preferred taste.

As garnishing chopped fresh parsley and springonion.

OK, here's a variation: nettle quiche...

for the pastry: 150 gram of sieved flour (not self-raising), salt & pepper. Cut 75 grams of margarine (or butter) into small blocks, then work the ingredients into a ball of pastry. Add some luke warm water to make things smooth. roll out and cover an oven-proof piece of kitchen-ware. Prick holes (siq) in the base.

For the rest: 3 eggs, 25 grams condensed milk, 2 cloves of garlic, 100 grams of grated cheese (old dutch recommended, either that or fancy expensive Swiss Emmental or even better the even more fancy French expensive Gruyere or Italian Parmesan. Damn the Euro), two handfuls of your least desired stinging-nettles. Press the garlic, clean and shred the stingers. Whisk the lot together (keep some grated cheese) and pour onto the pastry base..

Oven, gas mark 5, approx. 40 minutes (check your local settings). Don't let it burn. Add some grated cheese during the last few minutes.

Hey Ho......Very nice weather for past week, got into the mid eightiesSmoking. Stuff the nettles !, no really, roll a rolling pin over them to crush the spikey bits, then blanch and use as you would vine leafs to make dolmades etc. stuff quick steam and dose with olive oil and wine vinegar. Or if you live on the 'Sunny South Coast', pop down to the beach and tear off  a few sea kale leafs,(dont take the whole plant). More taste but needs longer steaming. DrumCool

Mmmm... all these quiche recipes are making me SO hungry. I love cooking and baking, but it might be too hot to heat up the house by baking a quiche.

Slept through another unbearably humid day here in the US, And staying up all night has it's fringe benefits. We had a freak five minute thunder storm today, my mum hid in the bathroom. She hates lightning. I however slept through most of it. When the thunder awoke me my only thought was bravo it's finally fucking raining!

Kraft makes one hell of a deluxe macaroni and cheese. LMAO that sounds like an ad. I dice four hot dogs and boil them for 8 to 10 minutes in the same pan as the macaroni. Drain, don't rinse, then add the cheese sauce.

Next week.. Microwave Pizzas!

This might be the most bizarre thread I've ever read on Peachy. Not that I'm saying that in a negative way... I guess. Hey, it got Camille C to respond, so it can't be that bad. (Hi, Camille.)

Hunter: I practically lived off Kraft M&C for at least a year... and I totally respect anyone adding to it/fixing it. Suggestion: Add some diced tomatoes to the mix, and heat them through just enough to soften them up a little. It adds flavor and cuts the overwhelming salt. Then add hot sauce.

Some disgusting Dutch junkfood....

Called "Patatje Oorlog" (translated Patatje (French Fried Potatos) Oorlog (War) )

French Fries with abundantly mayonaise, warm peanut sauce, chopped raw onions. Some people add Ketchup and Piccalilli as well.

It looks like something from a sick dog......

So the dutch fussball team got destroyed by Denmark this evening. How hopeless can you get? I almost kicked the TV through the window in an attempt to set the scores right. Watched the diamond jubilee concert a few days back. Cliff Richard should have his singing license revoked. Apart from that fun and games. Mrs. Queen looked OK, forgot her name. Missed the bag-pipes.

So whatya drinking lochsa? looks like brit beer and vodka for two. Remind me to post a recipe for russian Kvas here next time.

Not been too sunny over here for the last few weeks. Wonder when they shot the "Put your money where your mouth is" series. The car boot sales seemed quite good. @drums: we'll be over there end of July. Don't forget to warn izzy and the custom men. Let me know if you want any particular worldly goods from over here, otherwise you'll get whatever comes to mind (which might be the complete Jenya D collection or a few crates of beer)
