You might enjoy the sketch of Morecambe and Wise with Glenda Jackson ( Members of Parliament) as Cleopatra.
Enjoy one of the finest British stars keeping a straight face.

Let's be honest. She was might have made an ass of herself but at the end she made a clean breast of things.

Not much to eat. How about are there any types of constrictors? They usually are larger and better to eat.
All snakes in Australia are protected species and it's illegal to kill them for any reason. I have a few living in my house - they make great pets, not smelly at all and don't eat much. Reasonably friendly beasts too. I haven't been bitten in weeks.

So Richard, your snake recipes have drawn a blank in Oz.
Have no fear-Snudge is here and I am drinking with my Chinese- well half Chinese mate who is a superb cook- both English and Chinese. Owned the first Chinese restaurant in Newcastle- the proper one and is a semi retired food manufacturer. Being a widower, he makes and his wife d delivers my Sunday lunch.
When I was in HK, they used to remove the livers from live snakes. So between glasses tonight, I'll try to raise the subject.
So - inquisitive one- there are two schools of thoughts about snake oil. One is the traditional belief that it is a load of rubbish but the other is that extracting oil from their livers gives a superb lubricant for fine watches and fine instruments.

Of course you missed the Whiteadder and Blackadder - twists. Despite 'Cousin'( Well people say Rowan and I are related) there are two rivers at the border of Scotland and England- a small village.
Unfortunately, the American authorities are a bit fussy and nearly arrested my wife in JFK for bringing in apples but fear not, these little dogs have no sense of smell really because they entirely missed a supply of best Marks and Spenders Cornish Pasties.
No I'm on topic. Cornish pasties were the Cornish method of carrying the workmen's lunches in the tin mines pumped by non other than Trevethic engines. As for 'Edmund Blackadder' or his actual personage he qualified from a graduand to a graduate at Newcastle University-- in electrics before doimg a Master's at Oxford.
Edmund in Edmund Blackadder comes from the nearest little village to the family farm and the adders bit comes from the ones around the 'Prnnine' hll farm. What is odder still is that his next door neighbour is/or was a member of this forum.
So much for being 'ignorant'
Incidentally, this is entirely my research-- and is therefore COPYRIGHT inn English Law.

My workers in the Philippines always save the gall bladder of the snakes they eat for some medical hocus pocus. they get $$ from someone for it. I recieved some Mobil cutting oil yesterday. Seems so silly to be talking about something so mundane, but I have neveer used it before and am sort of excited by the prospect of using a proper cutting oil. Soon I should get some proper way oil as well.

Does anyone know of a simple way to remove fumes from cutting? I have a great problem with it if I breathe it. I've tried a simple vacuum cleaner but it is clumsy and noisy. A smaller system with less noise is what I needs. I suppose I will simply have to bite the bullet and construct one.

AS for snakes, they are 9 feet long and are- or were in old China hung from a hook in the rafters- and then the whole skin was pulled off. The rest of the story was a fit of the giggles from a very senior octogenarian and a a rather new nonagenarian. The rest of the evening is ' rather clouded'

Thanks Peter2AT for a reminder that Austria is still there. I have many happy memories of my late late playing the the Music Holiday. com in Berwang in the Tyrol. My wife;s photo is somewhere amongst a lot of friends over 15 years, Long before that we skied together and in the summer went to places like Kuhtai.
I was taught initially by an ex-Jaeger Korps man who was reserve man in the pre war Olympics. Karl Fuchs brought skiing to Scotland - and taught me to drink black rum and tea.
Best Wishes

Norman
