Do you ride that bike!? I love it!

I collect:

* foreign paper currency
* people as friends whom no one else wants to associate with... ( a very eclectic collection)
Good for you mate, the last one is not easy for me, I find it easier to relate to people here than in the real world, I am quite gregarious in a shallow way but I only have three friends that I trust enough to let get close to me.
Yes I did ride the HD after we finished it last year but with my probs it was not practical so I moved her on. I like repairing things but that is coming to an end because of my hand.
The clock is a french empire ormolu mantel, the body is unusual because its Onyx , unfortunately the gilt scroll that linked the three cherubs was missing when I bought it, if it had been complete it would have been out of my league.I bought this 1980's American Merry Tiller as a non runner, she is now so powerfull she rips up undug land with ease, I fitted an engine stop that goes around my waist because I fall over

Lpb have you read W H Auden, when I am angry I play a tape of the great man lecturing and reading his works to a class in Wadham college Oxford.

To return to topic I like desiccated coconut in my scones, my fave scone is plain(no spam) split then topped with clotted cream and home made straw jam

imo, a scone is a semi-dry, plain white wheat flour biscuit ( not unlike those in regions of the american south but made with less fat), that is really the earthy tasting canvass for the melting butter and warmed honey than it's bathed in.

with a cup of tea, it's a symphony.

lol, but really, if you want to evaluate butter, or try to guess the honeyflower, eat it melting in a scone.

Oh scone oh Scone you are so sweet
Oh scone oh scone you are a treat
Oh scone oh scone you make me replete
Oh scone oh scone I have to retreat
Oh scone oh scone I must repeat
But if I do I will need a reinforced seat

I love scones. Sweet or savory types. I make mango and pineapple scones, key lime scones and bacon and cheese scones.
