Does anyone have a spare ark?

15/06/2007

This morning’s journey to work involved a wade through thigh high flood water pushing the bike to get out of the village! A cool and refreshing start to the day and certainly I wouldn’t have got through in the car (as the two flooded vehicles being pushed out of the way clearly demonstrated)

… and it’s still raining

PS for Susan – a courgette in England is I think a zucchini in the US, or is that a bell pepper? – actually a bell pepper could be a capsicum. I learnt these things when sharing with an Aussie housemate but I’ve forgotten now. Anyway when fully grown a courgette looks like a small cucumber

    Hi Carie,
    Yes, in the States a courgette is a zucchini, a capsicum is a (bell)pepper, and an aubergine is an eggplant. Spring onions are scallions and…um, hmm, suddenly I feel a bit peckish, I’ll be back in a minute…
