No back sliding on my part last Sunday I enjoyed the pints of Red I had ? more Red for this session hopefully?
If I get to Camden I may pick up a lump of Wild Boar for this session. contributions are not necessary "I know a man with a dog so cost is minimal

Does anyone who attended the last session know what happened to my self modified Knockholt Carving knife I took with me to slice the bread.
I put it with the cheese and bread when I first laid it out , (Razor sharp)


Then I recall the pub provided a second knife but come the end of the session my knife was gone.
The handle of the knife in question was loose and would come off the knife.(Modified design fault)
Reguardless of that
The blade could swivels through the handle(If it didn't come off) which enabled the blade to be placed at any angle or placed at a right angle. This was very handy for the slicing of certain things that a normal carving knife would be difficult to cut with the fixed handle.

I would like to have it back if it can be found if not I will modify another one.
There is a possibility that it could have been taken back to Richard's by a unknown body at the end of the session? "who knows?

How much had you had to drink Pete?

Your knife fell to pieces so I suppose someone binned it. Elves and safe teas. I successfully retrieved my Sabatier thank you.

And now to serious business.

The Sheps usual seasonal ales are here: -

Shep's usual beers and seasonal beers

And there are some experimental brews to be seen if you click on

SPECIAL ALES FROM THE PILOT BREWERY

and then on

CLICK HERE FOR "NEWS OF THE BREWS.

It would appear that the Burns Nght Special is a different thing from the Amber Ale, so my thoughts would be

1. Amber Ale if we can get it

2. Possibly the Double Stout or maybe the relatively low-alc (3.5) Old Faversham Dark, the description makes my mouth water (!)

3. If we can't get what we want from the above, the Early Bird will probably be ready.

I am however open to views on the brews (and in fact we usually get whatever Peter the Landlord decides on anyway).

I wondered what you were harping on about in the posting above. Most of my decent knifes are German,
Sabatier sounds French ?

Anyway I am looking forward to the event. I have arranged with BR and to exchange my mandolin on the same day.
He having advised me to forget a Brass nut   instead he will fashion and fit a Cow leg Bone Nut.

Hopefully it wont explode like the plastic ones did. I quote

HahHAHhahHAH, Charming to the last ,Mr Bridge.
Is there a chapel or a church in Lower/Middle or Upper Stoke. I have been jawing to a man in Eltham in the Park Tavern who "claims"? there are tunnels associated with a church or chapel and a mention of a nearby Chalk mine ? Dont worry I no longer indulge in venturing into these places.

Now I would assume if there are any then the Middle Stoke area would be the most likely fore i fear that Lower stoke would be to flat and above all to wet in regards to flooding for people in the know to even consider a past chalk mining venture. Middle Stoke being higher and hilly a faint possibility. Having been banned from most mining forums I nowadays seek local advice to further my pursuits in regards to the proven locations of such places? Many go unmarked.

Oh by the by I find the out building outside of The Nags Head pub adjoining the children's play area out the back where the smokers go" some what charming despite being some what dilapidated. They clearly are stables with a name plate still remaining above a stable door.
These building are indeed charming and would make great B&B accommodation? I like the gray brickwork and the slate roofing of a bygone age.

Is it a folk session, or a knife throwing competition..? I is a little confused...and now have visions of poor wenches being tied to circular tables in the bar and aimed at, whilst being spun round at 90mph..

Is Sabatier, Knife Thrower Extraordinnaire really in control of himself enough to do this?

Methinks he has partaken of the amber nectar a little tooOOOooo deeply



Is this an ancient tradition in Kent? If so, it sure as hell beats Quiz Nights.

Ye wouldn't know a frozen Logger if it hit you on the head? I spent the afternoon in the garden lovely day. And went to Folkmob tonight

But tonight its minus having a piss because me bladders frozen. waiting for Fisheyes car to thaw out Bloody Fiasco. The boot was frozen the doors were frozen even the hot air from the car heater was frozen and we all looked like pop eye ice lollies the time we got going? stick a cornet on our heads?
I think Melodeon Boys invented a weather making machine and spends all night pulling different leavers? Ha Ha Huh Haaa

I have ordered some Chilly Cheese and copper stilton for this next session + a pint of Olives
that will make a Olive lovers mouth water and the usual crusty bread.
Bugger the Wild Boar I have moved the Herb garden in doors so I will bring appropriate herbs for the herbivores among us?

The time is getting close now.

I am giving Peter the Landlord the beer list in the following order: -

1 - Old Faversham Dark described thus:

Old Faversham Dark - 3.5% ABV

The silky, ebony hue of this beer leads to a complex aroma of dark chocolate, mocha coffee, vanilla and a smokiness reminiscent of autumn bonfires. A smooth rich blend of dark chocolate and roast coffee hits the palate, complimented by autumn fruit flavours. Velvety cocoa flavours linger on the palate. Another darkly delicious, hand crafted gem from the Faversham Brewery.

Brewing: 11 January

Available: Week Beginning 25 January


2. Amber Ale described thus:

SEASONAL ALE FOR JANUARY/FEBRUARY

A golden brown ale with a fruity aroma and zesty citrus, complementing the full malty palate.


ABV:
4.5%
Containers
9 gallon firkin



3. Double Stout: described thus:

DOUBLE STOUT

SEASONAL ALE FOR MARCH

A classic cask stout combining the flavours and characteristics of three coloured malts and additional roasted barley. Generously bittered with choicest East Kent Hops.


ABV:
4.1%
Containers
9 gallon firkin


4. Early Bird described thus:

Early Bird Spring Hop Ale is brewed with the Early Bird single hop variety - hence the name!

This light gold beer is full-bodied, distinctive and refreshing as a spring day, with a malty undertone.

Available March, April.

Tasting notes:
Light malty and smooth flavours provide a platform for the full floral spring-like aromas. Spicy early season Kentish hops pervade the rich light fruits of this seasonal ale.
Tasting notes by Peter Ogie, Famous Beer Writer


ABV:
4.3%
Containers
9 gallon Firkin, 500ml Bottle

Old Faversham Dark sounds Good. Darks seem to have more flavour.

I wonder, Richard, if you would be OK with me arriving at about 1035, and holing up chez Bridge till you go across.

The alternative is arriving about quarter to one, and I might well be restricted to leaving on the 4.47 bus, so I want to get the most time possible.

You mentioned something about lighting the fire, and I would be happy to help, with that.

My ex in-laws have a bread making machine I have tasted bread machine bread,

once you get the hang of making it and getting the right packets re bread making ingredients.
Its trial and error bread it is very good once mastered?
It is not no cheeper then the bloomer from from the bakers but it is tastier but it comes with practice and of course it depends on the sachets or ingredients one uses. and there is a wide variety.
I made bread in a machine once and it could have been used has ballast on any of HM one time battle cruisers. or indeed fired from a gun .
I tried baking bread in a biscuit tin once using stone s in a under-tin to bake the bread. The thing blew up and red hot stones shot everywhere the biscuit tin lid was on my roof for months.
I hope to make this event and will sadly miss it if I cannot but my fathers health is my priority at present.
The break would be nice both from work and fatherly care.
which takes up a lot of my time.

The rain has arrived. Plenty.

And I have three squidges cooking - a vegan one, a pork one and a beef one. The pachadi (hot pepper sauce) is putting up a fight and I really need a more effective "device for the comminution of food".

The fancy dress party last night was quite a giggle, but a distaff person telephoned at quarter to ten and by the time the conversation was over it was ten to eleven so I had to rush to the pub without changing into gangster clothes. There were two young persons of gender who had done quite effective "Gangster's Moll" costumes.

Several (male) persons had grown thin moustaches for the occasion and Peter the karaoke king looked the spitting image of Arther Daley in his early role as handyman at St Trinians (the original films of them).

There was some truly agonising karaoke and I got pressed to sing (very flattering) and managed not entirely to murder "Roll Over Beethoven".

Must have a shower, feed Benjamin dog, put throw on armchair the cushion covers of which are in the wash, light fire, hoover and tidy.

It's nearly a pachadi. Or to be simpler you can call it a hot pepper sauce.

A cup or two of chillis (of the violence that you prefer), a cup or so of red wine vinegar (or if you want it less sour, red wine), a lump of garlic (that's a whole lump, as it grows, not one sort of finger from the lump - the recipe says not peeled but I prefer to peel)

Put in food processor and smash like fury until smooth, almost like peanut butter but quite a bit runnier. It needs to be runny enough not to stick to the bottom of the saucepan. I turned the processor on flat out and went and did something else for nearly half an hour.

Put in small saucepan, bring to boil and simmer briskly for an hour or more, stirring and adding more wine/wine vinegar as necessary.

If you have lumpiness or significant texture, try to rub through a food sieve, or put through a food mill.

Return to saucepan, add sugar or honey to taste (tasting it is tricky as if you are too liberal with the size of taste you will paralyse your taste buds). You are aiming for a balance between the chilli heat, the vinegar sour, and the honey/sugar sweet. Simmer slowly until slight thickening is seen. Allow to cool a bit, put in clean empty jamjar (with lid) and refrigerate. It's supposed to keep for months in the fridge without freezing.

What's in that tea you leopards drink?

First was Jan 28, second Feb 28. How can you have missed three?

Last (unless I schedule another) this year will be Mar 21 (not 28), hope to see you astound the locals then.

We had a slightly smaller crowd this time, but some may have been put off by the weather - a number of local roads were flooded but (hooray) not my house this time. Yet. Alan flooded his ignition between Val's house and mine. Don said the bus had to go through puddles 8 inches deep. The lower stretch of the old Grain Road was reported not safe for low-slung cars. The shop next door to my house put out sandbags (and then took them in again presumably in case they were stolen).

There were plenty of combined effort roast spuds (I peeled and parboiled, Big Mary roasted in pub oven) and lots of other nibbly things, and some fine high spots. I particularly enjoyed a couple of Alan and Linda's things, and "The Bold Fisherman" rang off in true "revival traditional" style, in the time signature of "one", unaccompanied and with weapons of mass harmonisation.

Big Mary demanded "Ride On" (double entendre not intended) and got it in the Barden version. No Worries were skillful and their World War 1 segue was much appreciated by local Roland whose father who enlisted in WW1 under a false name and under age had just died. Roland also sang "Shoe-Shine-Sally", a mildly smutty army song, to assembled glee. The Hotel Torremolinos went down with its usual verve and subtlety to the glee of the locals. Clive who used to have an Ovation copy but now plays an Encore produced a fine piece in open G that was much liked. Annie wound me up as usual with songs of Irish pride and a mischievous grin. VT was well on song and produced inter alia a trad or tradalike (I don't know which) that was new to me and a number of verses of which had strong similarities to the words of "The False Bride" which I do to the tune of "I once loved a lass". CS was as vocally stunning as usual and got pretty well everyone going with Alison Grimes. Chris the local ventured into DADGAD and may put new strings on for next time. Naughty 40 was well received. Sheppey Paul managed to get a seat where he could watch the (silent) football on the square eyed god and still sing and play. Don raised the usual laughs and all liked his serious song using (with Les's permission) the words of Les Barker.

I was delighted to be asked to do a long one, in the early stages before all had arrived, and the Steeleye (or is it Fairport) version of Matty Groves stretched into a choogling almost funk massed band effort complete with improvised words in places due to a conflict between the Amber Ale and rationality.

Alas by 5 pm the background noise from those watching the silent foolsball had become too loud for us to continue, so we retired for squidge, but all in all, a pretty good 5 hours.

Morningwood - Essentials - no amplification unless you are a keyboard player or have a genuinely otherwise inaudible instrument, and even then keep it below the level of a solo voice. A liking for folk and folk-ish song and music. Consideration for others, particularly performing children and locals and novices all of whom are to be encouraged.

Advantages - own tankard and liking for beer, tolerances for local barflies who have not really got the etiquette right, please don't expect others not to join in unless you have a very good reason, sense of humour helpful, performance ability as far as possible, and we happily have a fair amount of 1954 definition folk sometimes twisted almost out of recognition and sometimes done very retrospectively, so likening that is good although we also have contemporary folk-style and even ARSS.

I'm a bedroom strummer of a few years on and off and just recently decided to get involved. It then dawned on me that I don't actually know much if anything in its entirety, so I'm sorting that out. I'm no singer either, but hey-ho it's folk so I'll give it a go.
So as far as performing goes I'm a total novice and judging by how I end up as a fumbling mess playing for family/friends etc it'll be interesting!!

Maybe Fisheye could let TSO use his cam while Fisheye is in the wild frozen Midlands - the Rode mic that Fisheye has is AWESOME - just listen to it.

Down Where the Drunkards Roll

Mingulay Boat Song

The Night Visiting Song

Mattie Groves

One Hand on the Radio One on the Wheel

This has taken most of today.... Benbow is buggered I'm afraid.

Thanks for your efforts Tam as I enjoy watching them and I know how tedious it can be sorting out this kind of stuff.
Anyway is there better things to do on a Sunday rather then editing and uploading utoob videos?
