Have you watched all Gordon's cookery shows, there was 20 of them? We have got them all lined up to watch
I would be very surprised if I have missed any! They are heavily advertised here, so I would have had to be locked up in a dungeon with no TV to have missed one! I also have his biography and a couple of his cookery books. I have something like 170ish cookery books mind you, and I really only use about 5 or 6 on a regular basis. (Plus I get most of my recipes online these days).

DH called, very excited, he'd just heard that there is a flame thrower that kills weeds. I had heard of them, figured, go big or go home, so I ordered this:

Along with the trigger attachment and cart.

New toy! And it does a lot of other stuff, like melting ice from the steps.

Ooo, fire Dawg! Cool!

I'm mulling over the idea of throwing a couple of logs in the fireplace and striking up a fire. Seriously! After all my bit... crabbing about hot weather! Instead, I could just get my blood flowing by cleaning a room. Not as romantic, but certainly needed. *sigh*

Good luck with that. Mine hasn't been used since the first two seasons I bought it for, ice season and weed season.

I figured, if nothing else, it will be good to use with the chimney starter....

I've seen lots of pics of folks using them to start fires in pits.

That made me laugh

What is his biography like Katy?

I have read Marco Pierre White's biography and I loved that

Good! I am always glad to provide amusement!

Okay, I am a huge fan of Gordon, but my honest opinion on his biography is that he came across slightly whiny. That said, it did give a lot of background information that was very interesting. If you are a real fan and want to know his background then it's worth reading. If you only have a passing interest - probably not.

I'm running up and downstairs copying files using a USB key. You see, I have the latest MS operating system, Windows 8, with all the current updates. Stupid thing won't let me see the other computers on our home network. I am not a happy camper.
