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 I am no longer active in organisations.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

Spicks & Specks–the bits they left out

The picture above is from here.

I have been a Spicks and Specks fan since Night One.  That surely shows what excellent taste Miss Eagle has. 

To-night, the edition has been a bit different – literally, out of order.  We have been shown all the edited-out bits.  I have been helped along by a friend turning up with some Pepsi to which I added some Bundy left over from Sunday’s Rugby League Grand Final!  I have to say in what a wonderful frame of mind the Bundy & Peps and the naughty bits left me.

Adam Hills, and the anchors Myf Warhurst and Alan Brough, are, IMHO, absolutely brilliant. They have tickelled my funny bone for years now and continue to do so.  To-night they sent me into hysterics, a coughing fit, and perhaps an unredeemable apopleptic health event.  The ruling triumvirate are brilliant – and their guests….

Perhaps my favouritest guest is Denise Scott, a woman of similar. if imprecise,  vintage.  She is impossible! In the nicest possible way, mind you. Although I am in love with Hamish Blake. 

This set me to thinking.  I think Spicks has moved up a notch.  There is now room for the Grown-Up Edition (GUE) which MUST include the impromptu left out bits.  Impromptu is more fun, don’t you think?
