The one is Lancashire or the one near Harrogate, or the one near Ryedale or the one in South Yorkshire, perhaps the one near Glasgow or the one in the borders.

Visiting Phoenix, Arizona, again.

I don't know what kind of bird this is here.
It looks like a jay of some kind. Entirely dark.
The funny jay gait.
And you should hear it calling!
It's the kind of sound that makes you straighten up and look around.

High, piercingly clear, really a whistle.
And the jays, when they talk at each other (they are often in groups),
have all different pitches and notes that each whistles,
and some of them have little ornaments, grace notes, sliding from one note to the next.

The funniest thing I ever hear from these jays
is the sunset, the crepuscular soundoff.

For this one, they all clump together in the branches of trees
(one tree, if it's big enough for the whole group)
and deep behind its green leaves,
they all whistle at once.
I mean, it is the darndest sound.
They sound like they're all high on the same drug.

I spent yesterday evening at Butsner Ancient Farm, for this:

Samhain Festival?? Friday 20 October?SOLD OUT
Join us to celebrate the evening of Samhain in the magical surroundings of the great roundhouse. Between 7-10pm you will enjoy live music, professional storytelling by Jonathon Hue

Great fun. The instruments and music were perhaps some way from authentic, since they included banjos and sang of New Orleans but what the heck, just enjoy it for what it is.

I made a really good fish pie for fussy buggers at the weekend. Even Mother loved it. No prawns, no salmon (the usual hatred-inspirers), just smoked haddock and unsmoked cod. With hard-boiled eggs of course. I also made an Elizabeth David beef daube. You can get the really easy recipe from the Guardian if you google "Guardian daube Elizabeth David" (no shit, Sherlock). It's a winner as long as you stick to the top rump she specifies. I bought a big piece from Sainsbury's and cut it to size myself. I used pork rinds that I'd trimmed off some pork chops and kept in the freezer, but I left them whole and just fished them out at the end. I just used some streaky bacon slices cut up small instead of the chunks she specifies.

I am sure I have seen the Coffee Sack if I get of the M60 at Prestwich and go past Heaton Park to avoid the death valley bit of the 'smart motorway' (stupid phrase) upgrade. Is it not Bury New Road and Scholes Lane? Anyway, Must give it a try sometime.

Dave,
It's often a difficult one to remember to get right. It's not helped by the fact that the two words sound the same.
I (nearly) always remember which to use by comparison with advice/advise where the pronunciation makes it obvious which to use and the differentiation between noun/verb is the same as with practice/practise.

Cheers

Should have just blamed it on having spell-check set to US settings.
Even the OED (Oxford English Dictionary) gives:
Practice (vb): US spelling of 'practise'
Here
Useful to know if it prevents the cost of a reprint.

I seem to remember Dave Mallinson in his D/G tutors who, having spelled "practice" in the verb sense with a c throughout, because it was obviously impractical to reprint the books, issued a blanket apology in one of the prefaces.

I had a real moment of bafflement this morning and it is still a bit incomprehensible to me. A friend is on a holiday in India - very nice - and she is staying in an essentially Western hotel. Well, that is a bit of a shame, but it is not that easy from here to find alternatives. But the real startling moment was a Facebook post where she showed where she had gone out to eat: a fusion restaurant run by a 'Profesional English Chef'. what are you thinking? You are in India and go for an Indian meal. Why on earth go to one doing 'fake Indian' in the English style?


We shall have to have words when she gets home ....
