Rather a hurried post today as we have both been out all day.  We didn't see the News at all yesterday as the Murray Tennis Match seemed to take over both channels and there didn't seem to be any early evening bulletin and tonight's News (we never watch more than once a day - that's depressing enough)  is on in twenty minutes, followed by Country File - the only programme we watch at present on television.

The farmer has been off into Wensleydale walking with his Walking Group.   They managed to get back shortly before yet another thunder storm arrived.

I have been out to lunch in a local pub, The Queen's Head, Finghall, with five friends.   Nice company, nice surroundings, pleasant staff and a delicious choice of meal.  I had my favourite starter, which is usually on the menu, of Crayfish and Apple Salad.  And for my main course I had wild mushroom and pine nut risotto.
A drink with my meal and coffee and a couple of chocolates afterwards and that is all I need for today.  I feel suitably full up.

Both of us arrived home and watched the thunderstorm out of the window.  That makes three storms this week.

Another week begins tomorrow - I wonder what this one will hold.  Hope you all have a good one.

I just read a bit about Wensleydale to see about the origin of the name. I would have guessed it named after a person, as so much about here is. But, it all is a derived from Woden, and quite a god, he. I have been so busy today I have yet to think about a post.

Let's see - walking or a lovely meal? I know what I'd choose every time.

Well, the week starts with the news that Greece has voted NO to any form of austerity. Maybe they should try Wonga or Dosh-is-Us; many foolish people do, in the same foolish situation. It's quite possible that their NO vote will affect all of us.

Thanks for calling on on such a short post. Another week begins - hope I have more time to think of something more interesting for you this week.

Now I know who's pinched all the thunderstorms!! I do hope this week will be quieter for you. I like the sound of your choices from the lunch menu.
