That was yesterday, I have to go back again for something else today, resting pictures I believe. It's all very well, but we are up to $32.50 for parking already. It’ll be another $10 today; makes it damned expensive although I suppose, as we don’t pay for the treatment, I shouldn’t really complain. Tell you one thing, I will be wearing long pants tomorrow, that hospital is freezing. I remember they used to keep hospitals dreadfully hot, now they seem to have gone the other way.
Matt and I faithfully watch Jeopardy every day and this week are watching kids of 10, 11 and 12 perform brilliantly. It's odd to me that things I think they would know, they don’t and things about which I have no clue, they can answer. Jeopardy used to be on in the UK but isn’t any more, I wonder why? Presumably it wasn’t popular but that surprises me. I thought, last night, wouldn’t it be great to have kids from lots of English speaking countries competing against one another, too expensive I suppose.
It occurred to me last night that, had our mothers lived, Matt’s and mine that is, they would have been 100 this year. Mine this month. Not something important, but…
Generally I don’t post recipes which don’t appeal to me. Nothing I received by email yesterday did, so its back to Food and Drink. I think a drink would be appropriate today and as I am a Scotch drinker, I chose a cocktail made with Scotch. I would not pollute a good single malt Scotch, but a blend is fine for cocktails. Scotch whisky does not have an e in whisky, Irish and Bourbon whiskeys do. My parents used to occasionally drink a cocktail similar to this made with gin, they called it Gin Mixed.
