China General

Are there not many cows in China?

…was the question a member of my family came out with at dinner on Boxing Day. Bearing in mind this person has eight degrees from arguably the best university in the world this was somewhat of a nonsensical question. No, they had not been drinking and it was not a joke. Perhaps you had to be there to appreciate the situation but it had everyone in hysterics that evening. I’ll leave you to imagine where on earth this question came from!

Home for Christmas

Other than that little interlude Christmas 06 was pretty good and a fun time was had by all. One of my best presents was the entire kit needed to grow your own chillies (of which I heavily consume!) so expect to see some progress updates on that next spring, with hopefully a plentiful crop 🙂
