  1. I had margarine (revolting) and Anchor (too greasy) as a child. Only Lurpak for me now, but also like President and other good quality French butter
  2. Oh Nonna, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mum, but I'm pleased you saw her finally, although it wasn't in the best of circumstances. Losing your Mum, as I well know, is just so difficult and so sad
  3. Having worked in France for a while and had lots of holidays there over the last 30+ years, I developed a liking for goats cheese. When I gave some to my Mum, she thought it was just like Colwick cheese. Goats cheese in France is often unpasteurised, and haven't noticed huge numbers of deaths from eating it
  4. I'm so sorry to hear this, Ben
  5. Tony, you need to give some idea of dates please (of birth, death and who they married and when, if you know)
  6. Bit late to this, SG, but Happy Birthday anyway
  7. Nonna. I do hope your Mum will be OK. Take care
  8. We went to see Richard Thompson a couple of years ago - don't know why. SO boring that we left after about 30 mins
  9. RR, your answer to 19 gave me a laugh
  10. I have 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, No idea about the rest
  11. Little Richard has always been one of my great favourites. Good Golly Miss Molly for me is the best, followed closely by Lucille
  12. That sounds reassuring, Nonna - I do hope they'll stick to their promise
  13. I love that film too, Jill. We read Great Expectations for English Lit O Level, so we were all taken to see it, but I've watched it a number of times since. I'm not a great fan of Dickens but I love that book, my favourite line being about Bentley Drummle "he was so sulky a fellow that he even took up a book as though it's writer had done him an injury"
