Seegee, how fantabulous to see you - especially if you're bringing back fresh edibles, I was about to break out the emergency supply of Pot Noodles....

I'm not a cook but can't imagine anyone having much difficulty with potato or tomato ;-) (both are South American plants introduced to Europe by seafaring folk hundreds of years ago). 
There are some orange peppers, sweet potatoes & tomatillo too.  I have no idea what tomatillo tastes like, we'll have to try it & see...

Hope people like papaya, custard apple, mango or guava - there were loads of these fruits.  >biggrin<

Morning Kizzy.
I haven't seen the Cap'n either.

 Hope Sir C hasn't accidently locked him in his new place.  >yikes<


Au contraire. The Captain has gone away for the week and is trying out a few digging, construction and defence devices courtesy of JCB, for when work starts in Brazil and he assumes the post of Director of Construction / Site Manager Tues - Fridays, 10am-4pm excluding bank holidays and Olympic Games big events days.

Fortunately the Disability Living Foundation stocks a number of these machines, so they will be able to make them all easily accessible and with hand / nose control. I think it will give him a new lease of life.

Thanking you kindly for the information, and I'd like to be behind the wheel of one of those magnificent machines as well - now where did I put that hard hat and hi-viz jacket??

PS - any chance of rustling up a tea-trolley while you're deigning us with your presence?

Well, alright. I fancy having a go on the JS210, but obviously You Know Who will have the final say.

There is nothing to stop us from renting a few JCBs and having Exhibition Formation Digging Performances for the benefit of customers. If we play our cards right it could be the next Olympic - Paralympic event, because the host nation gets to choose a new event for subsequent games, and I don't want us to choose something naff like Synchronised Slimming, which will be No Fun At All.

Obviously we will need to hire an experienced choreographer to take charge of that side of things - I have something like a heavy plant version of this in mind - -  so it looks as though I'll have to post a new job advert.

When will my work be complete?

Hi stalwart. Good to see some lovely food about.
I'll have double helping of Salad Nicoise and lemon tart. Thankyou.

Hope seegee and kizzy have moved into the shade today.
Sir C, might mistake them for lobsters otherwise.  >lol<

 >lol<   How wonderful to see you, Cap'n - I was getting concerned about you  >hugs<  I did suspect it might be wretched technology-related difficulties, though..

As you can see, order has been maintained throughout the ship during your absence < salutes >

HHello Kizzy Kazaer

Saultes THANKYOU for maintaning order while I had technical problem's my next schedualled respite is 8th September but I'll remind you nearer the time. I'm extremly pleased Stalwart is cooking manual labour is food intensive. Cor I'm amazed at Sir Cumfrence in the J.C.B he is an artist (the way he swing's the bucket around)
