A message from Brigid ....

I have been a blogger since 2005. At the height of my blogging busy-ness, I had "a small stable" of blogs on different topics: social and political commentary; desert spirituality; food; waste and ....

A few years ago I called time and ceased blogging altogether - although there was an occasional post. I had called it quits. I am an aged woman these days with a couple of serious illnesses. I am not allowed to drive. I am no longer active in organisations. I think it fair to say that I am housebound. I am active on Facebook, although I am not there as often as once I was. I have decided to embark on a re-entry into the blogging world ... beginning with The Trad Pad and, possibly, a return to my food blog, Oz Tucker. I have always used a lot of photographs on my blogs ... and I miss not being out and about with my camera.

The Trad Pad has been my blog for the lovely things of life. The controversial or political has seldom intruded. Occasionally, the spiritual has found its way in, but I kept spirituality for the blog, Desert. I don't yet know if I will revive that. I will stick pretty much to food and the lovely things of life. If I have some regularity with those two categories, I feel that I will be doing well. I hope that, with this blog new friendships can be formed and old friendships renewed; new lovelies discovered; new reflections can enter into the meaning of modern life. I would love to hear from you - particularly if you have suggestions for new topics to enter into the conversation. So, it is a new year. Let's see what it has in store, what it can bring to us. And I hope that those who share the spirit of The Trad Pad can spread the message of a world of beauty, the creativity of humanity, and the joys of simplicity and tradition. ~~~ February, 2017

Great Aussie Scone Fest

Janet over at The Old Foodie has entered into correspondence on the topic of scones.

Well now Miss Eagle,

I have just posted an addendum ("Above and beyond") to today's post "Colonial Kosher", as a result of the comments from Gillian Pollack (her comment was just before yours on the shark/mullet story) at - she has put up a batch of scone recipes from her Jewish grandmother's cookbook. Now dont you just have to get out your Schauer and post her scone(s) recipe? - she must have at least a couple? You might start the Great Aussie Scone Recipe Fest. In any case, you are duty bound - with the name of your blog and all - to find a pumpkin scone recipe for the rest of the world. I await it eagerly.


Please note: Miss Eagle has used a pumpkin colour for The Old Foodie's letter.
