    My mum told me they used a bakers basket ( you know the ones they had with two lids ) to carry me and all my stuff to the air raid shelter during the war. Do you think I would qualify as a basket case??
    That Confucius came out with some smart things didn’t he 🙂

      I have seen those bakers baskets with the double lid. How clever of your mum to use it to carry you to the air raid shelter, the air could reach you through the weave.

      I would call you a basket case of the precious kind!

      My parents married during the war, Ireland was a neutral country, but they did have rationing.

    HI Grannymar, I popped over from the farmy and have read all the way back. lovely blog and loving “The End …” I toured (RoI) Ireland in 2006 with a friend and loved, loved the country. Sadly we were warned off Northern Ireland but I hope to correct this soon sometime. I will be back often. Laura

      Hi Laura, welcome to my blog. Like you I love life on the farmy. Were you wishing to visit Northern Ireland in July? We call that the Marching season and tensions can be high at times, so perhaps that was why you were warned off. Northern Ireland is a beautiful place, though the weather can be temperamental. Dress like an onion – in layers to peel off or add on when needed.

        Mid July to August it was indeed! Interesting fact to know, we quickly learnt the onion trick, but still enjoyed our visit 🙂 Laura

          The first two weeks in July, are the most contentious, after that life goes back to normal.

    Confucious lived in another time and place. Back then, life was simpler ~> no driver’s licenses, no insurance issues, no high priced health care, no internet, no books, no stores, no tug to travel via planes, trains, and automobiles to visit relatives spread out over the globe.

        The internet is there ~ after health care, before books. But I could have made the list MUCH longer.

        I suppose we could still apply his advice to our lives . . . by eschewing electricity and A/C and moving into a cave in the mountains to meditate. 😎

          😆 I would not last long in a cave, the damp cool air would see me off in a very short time.

      Dianne, even I have the odd disappointment. Have you watched any You Tube videos for making that particular bread? You never know, it might be something simple.
