    Bacon, Sausages and burgers are bad for you!!

    I'm not a great lover of burgers but the latest WHO report on health risks puts two of my favourites right up there on the 'no no' list. I shall not be refraining from sausages and bacon, but is nothing sacred in the dietary world these days? Obviously this could have a serious impact on South...

    Buffet breakfast liberties

    I was in a short queue for the buffet breakfast at a hotel and the fat woman in front of me took the last six slices of bacon and last three fried eggs forcing everyone else to wait. This is on top of three croissants and a cinamon swirl so it's not as if she would have starved if she had taken...

    Best fried breakfast in the region.

    Leave your reviews. The Labworth, Canvey Island. One egg, one slice of bacon, two hash browns, mushrooms, sausage, toast and tea. £7.50. I don't mind paying £7.50 for a breakfast, especially for a venue with a great view like the Labworth but I object to deep fried mushrooms and cheap deep...
  5. Things you wouldn't have done only if you knew....

    Things you would never have done if only you had known...... I will kick it off with "I would never have eaten danish bacon if i'd known" http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/10/13/sex-animals-banned-denmark_n_5975828.html?1413199994

    Bodybuilding protein drinks.

    Does anyone else think these take a lot of the pleasure out of eating protein? Why don't they do them in meat flavours such as steak, chicken, bacon etc. instead of chocolate, strawberry and banana?

    Pre-Match Thread Southend v Gillingham kick off 1'clock don't forget!

    I think we're all hoping Britt is ok to start this one although if not, I think it's Freddy's turn to start. If anyone knows how to outplay Barrett, then Freddy will! Will be in the Shrimpers early as we've draw tickets to prepare and I understand there's bacon rolls on offer - sounds good to...

    FC - Season 24

    A new season arrives.....and I forgot to set orders! Luckily we're playing UGTF who are mid rebuild and having 6 all rounders means no real disasters. However one of our main bats has missed out and we have a trainee bowling. Shouldn't matter though. Opening week gates as rubbish as ever...
  9. If your driving to Plymouth Next week

    Hi all, pilgrim in peace here, with an offer some may appreciate. If you'r planning on coming down for the game on saturday and heading into town beforehand you could do worse than popping into my wifes cafe, if you are wearing your colours and make yourselves known as shrimpers down for the...
  10. Hmmm....it's a quandary

    Inspired by a Richard Bacon podcast with Johnny Vaughan. Now, if you have two Iphones (A & B), identical in every way apart from the fact that Iphone B has Angry Birds installed on it, does it weight heavier than Iphone A?

Now being the busy IFA that I am I cant be spending hours cooking so I am doing an easy dish. As I know as least two people have tried DtS Cooking Corner reciepes in the past I thought I might...

    Swanny - SPOTY?

    Got on him at 18/1 last Tuesday, has since come in to 10/1. A nice 5 wicket haul in the first innings of the next test could seal the deal. All the rest of the nominees have done there bit for the year, so out of site out of mind could play a huge part in this, so hopefully Swanny can do the...

    1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to beer. 2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and a $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can't afford shoes. 3. You have more wives than teeth. 4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon "unclean." 5. You think vests...

    If you were born in the 50's, 60's or 70's

    Doesn't this just some up what it was like growing up and exactly what the kids of today are missing out on? First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads...
  17. Question Does My Housemate Have a Vagina?

    This morning, I started to question my housemates manliness for the first time... Got up this morning with no work so thought I'd make myself a quick bacon sarnie while listening to Sky Sports News before getting to the gym. I left the kitchen door open so I could hear about Dean Ashton finally...

    Which match should I watch ?

    Just seen Liv - Man City while cooking myself a nice fry up (I believe I deserved it after a game of six a side) sausages, eggs, mushrooms, bacon and beans Choices are Sunderland - Arsenal, Chelsea - Wolves (well that's out of the running), Birmingham - Fulham or Burnley - Villa. Alternatively...
  19. Benitez must Battle from the Brink

    Every season after a run of mediocre performances or defeats, some over excited journalist will question one of the big four's title crudentials and, quite rightly, they'll be chastised for doing so. This season, however, Liverpool's season really could be over by this time next weekend. A...

    This ghastly bag of fat/lard refuses to name the kids she and others abused..Torture the fat bint by putting her huge arms into the local butchers bacon slicer...Bet she talks then.
