Thanks Way2 for your take on ‘Knives Out’.  So a bit clever, odd and engaging.   Sounds like it’s worth a look.

I too hope Joanna is ok.  She has the most lovely spirit and it shows in her posts. She’s really missed here.
I've got to say, I didn't think Knives Out was particularly good. Felt it was a little over-acted and there's a stupid plot device involving vomiting that's just too dumb for belief. But that's not to say it's bad exactly, more that it's not particularly good. That's a shame because it's got a great cast and the location is stunning. To my mind, it just doesn't deliver as expected.

Right, as this is my first Halloween in my new home, I thought I'd go all out (sort of) and actually carve a few pumpkins and put them in my front garden. The good news is that with Covid19 there aren't supposed to be any trick or treaters, so I think I'll be safe from unwanted visits!

The question is, what to do with the pumpkin innards? I know I can google recipes, but any US posters here who have a fail-safe recipe I could try, using fresh pumpkin?

Love this

Cook pumpkin into oven
It will get dry and tasty 

The result has to be sweet and hard
Firm
Solid

Or into hot water it will melt and escape out

You can add amaretti
Or simple no butter bisquits

Katie - I'm not a fan of pumpkin, but you can rinse the gunk off the seeds, toss them with a little oil and salt and toast them in the oven. The toasted seeds make a good snack.

I think that depends on how much oil and salt I put on them!!!

Thanks folks, still open to more recipes if you have anything tried and tested.

Tell me I'm not the only one who's spent hours on Amazon looking at prime deals and can't find a single damn thing that I need?? Want, yes. Need, no.

I'd have agreed with you up until 3 days ago when planned obsolescence struck. I have a ton of CDs that I play on a SONY boom box that I've had for @ 4 years. I love the thing because it's a radio, tape and CD player that I can take anywhere because it's light-weight, works on batteries or it can be plugged in. 90% of the time I'm playing CDs on it - or I was until the CD player died. Sad The radio still works. The tape player still works. Evil or Very Mad The CD player is dead!!!! Now what??????????? scratch



I spent all day yesterday looking for a CD player on Amazon. I know CD players tend to have problems, so I didn't want to spend too much on an unknown quantity. Anything that got decent reviews seemed to cost almost as much as the SONY products - or more. Any guesses on what I ended up with?

(Also, this week, my desk chair committed suicide and my lady shaver stopped shaving. If everything comes in threes I should be o.k. for a while, but I'm not holding my breath.) hidingbehindsofa

Gosh, Lizzy, that's a bad run of luck with electronics. Don't tell me you got a Sony Walkman (diskman?)

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Well, I didn't get a Walkman but I did get a SONY. It's pretty much the same as the boombox I had and was actually less expensive. I'm not sure if that was because of Prime Day or because they've come out with fancier models that cost more. Whatever, it's supposed to arrive on Saturday so I'll get a good look at it then. Fingers crossed it will work at least as well as the old one. I've been told that having a CD player last 4 years is something of a minor miracle. Hmph! Whatever happened to pride of workmanship? It's no wonder there's more plastic in the ocean than fish!

Hi!    If you've never played with pumpkin seeds, this site may help you

https://www.jessicagavin.com/how-to-roast-pumpkin-seeds/


The big secret is to wash them, and DRY thoroughly

Have fun, oh and remember- carving pumpkins are not sugar pumpkins- they don't cook well in recipes.

I didn't know that! Thanks. In the supermarkets here, they're just selling 'pumpkins', so no idea what kind they are!

"pumpkins"= carving pumpkins.. If they are sugar pumpkins  #1  the sign will indicate sugar  #2  sold by the pound, and usually more expensive than the big ones typically sold at a flat rate.  Hope this helps

Thank you, Katie!

If that happens and you're not on Twitter, Lizzy - and I'm not - if you leave the site via the

arrow to the left at the top and then press the right arrow again and go back into it, it seems to

happen!?? No idea why....

Thanks, PAN. I'll give it a try when I get through mopping up the tears!!!!! Very Happy Sad Sad Sad

OMG! How wonderful that was, Katie! I worked with Down syndrome children for a few years and it's wonderful to see them included like that. I love you I love you I love you I love you

(PS - Just tried the link to Twitter post and it worked without help. Sometimes I think the internet is just some giant  frustration experiment.)

Far be it for me to blow my own trumpet (ahem), but I've got to say I really love it when George is doing publicity for a new film.

So many George stories in the forum this week!!

It's about time! I guess we can thank PR for the movie for most of it. I wonder if the political stuff would have gotten as much coverage if he wasn't promoting the film.

I think it kind of all snowballs together.  He's done a few virtual appearances, he's giving interviews (his statement on the confederate flag is one I'm still considering whether or not to retweet - have enough grief with people convinced he's a paedo and/or terrorism supporting anti-Azerbaijan person) and so on.  Then people dig out old stories about him.  

It's nice to see there's so much about him at the moment, even though I admit they're only just tiny little snippets, rather than actual news about George.

Mmm. I think that this is what he often does, except it's usually on a red carpet about all things

topical and the journos know he's always happy to discuss issues of the moment and that they'll

get a story so it works both ways and also benefits the film....

He's also happy to hold formal press conferences in, say Washington, for The Sentry etc if he

has something to say - so two bites of the cherry - at least! Of course it could be that he regards the red carpet lark as a necessary evil and thinks that

he might as well another benefit out of it to make it worthwhile............

Thanks PAN. That was nice. I'd almost forgotten what he looks like without the facial fuzz. Smile

It says something about the level of respect given him that media outlets seek him out for his opinions even when he isn't making the red carpet/pr rounds.
