A community of vans down by the river, where we take pleasure in beautiful canals, spinning yard decorations, roaming gnomes, a stationary bike trail, and our collection of well-worn tire swings!

*Traffic reports on the hour and half-hour by our all-seeing sages in the sky*

Every July 18th is decreed to be Gonzo Day in AVDBTR, honoring the birthday of Hunter Thompson.

On September 12th, we celebrate the life of our late vanry solicitor The Hanging Judge.

We value our partnership with Monte Carlo Beach, but we don't form alliances, host or join embassies, so don't bother asking.

In fact, mind your Ps and Qs, or Gardyloo! to you!

Wine of The Week (for those of you who do ...)

A friend brought a bottle of Malbec (Argentina/Mendoza) to dinner last evening and although I wasn't serving anything compatible, he insisted I try it.

WOW! The wine is a "Tilia 2014" and it blew me away. Especially when he told me the price - $10.99 (and that's in California. You can probably get it elsewhere for under 8 bucks.) Lots of ripe cherry but some blood orange, too, that added great freshness. If you're doing lamb for Easter (be still my aching heart!) or a pork loin, this would be fantastic and easy on the budget. Really, it's a great buy and a very, very tasty wine. Cheers!

Hmmm..... would you buy it again?

Just popping in...I'm still around... I think for now those raiders have been banned by NS. We shall see.

We had a ham for Easter, with a brown sugar/brandy glaze.

Ha Ha Ha ! (me)
Ei yi yi! (Eva)

The corks are popping here - and, I suspect, various abodes throughout the U.K.

Take a bow, my stinky old cow! 33/1, Grand National, "Rule the World" takes the race! (and please, please, please ...Percy, you & Pickle put a few shillings on this, didn't you?)

I didn't make a bet but this is an open house tonight - all on us! Food, bubbles, view, candlelight & stars. Be here. :-)

(It's written in the stars, darling ... a great year ahead. And what a beginning! See ya!)

Percy J Pickleface

Mimes - thanks for your diligence. The task always falls to you, removal of the vermin. (it's a guarantee during Spring Breaks)

Easter ham always reminds me of "Annie Hall". :-) My brother bastes his ham with dark rum. (And sherry on his turkeys.)

Percy J Pickleface

Bating a ham with dark rum. Hmmmmm..... Interesting combination.

No, we didn't bet on the race. You know, if you placed a 10 quid bet on the old nag with a 33/1, you'd come out with 330 quid? (hope my math is correct).

I'd rather walk the race track then bet on the ponies. I'll have you know that my weekly walking equals to 2 marathons a week. That's right 52 miles this old mare walks each week. :) Five years going strong. :)

Why, hello!

Hi, hi, hi! I'm rushing - I'll be back tomorrow.

But I wanted you to know that I love you. :-)

Loud Mimes

I'm a day late! But better ..., right?

We just got back from SD - weather, beach, just right. And so much good stuff in season - artichokes (big, fat suckers) avoes (to die for!) and fields of flowers up around Fallbrook.

But what a year it's been - and only 1/3 gone. The other day, before I opened UK Daily Mail, I said - "Wonder who died today?" And there it was - one of my favorite astrologers, Jonathan Cainer, gone at 58. Sad, baffling times.

Percy, I want to say how absolutely FAB you are! 52 miles a week?!! I feel like a piker! What a great example of determination you are to Kitten.
Luck girl! :-D

Back soon,
