Cowart's Common Room

Today is Friday, May 7, 2010, the day after the British Election. For Gordon Brown, it is more like Friday the 13th.

I got a lovely piece of fan mail from Fairy Nuff yesterday: "Bears do tongue in cheek almost as well as they do tongue in honeypot." Somebody who understands me! No surprise: she has, by her own count, about 800 Bears in her house. Either she has very strong ursine intuition, or she lives a charmed existence. I cannot imagine myself in a house with 799 other Bears and a human or two. The other fan mail was a sassy note from Headmistress, indicating she is not pleased by macaroons. (Some people have no taste.)

British election results, still not final, point to a ConLabLibEtc Parliament. Reminds me of creatures with names like CockaPoo and LabraDoodle. Nice to see some of the Celtic parties doing well, including Scottish National, Plaid Cymru, and (Bear holds breath!) Sinn Fein. We've yet to hear Her Majesty's opinion of the matter, or who she will choose as her next Prime Minister. (Yes; it still is her choice; one must keep in mind this is a constitutional monarchy.)

BTW, best commentary on the election comes from our Exmoorjane.

In the land of the Bear, snow yesterday, more snow today. All this snow is getting frankly tedious. Bear is not amused. I want to get on with my gardening!

BTW, what is this "builders tea" to which people refer? A special blend, or something so strong that it dissolves the spoon used to stir it?

Today's tea in the Common Room is Scottish Heather; delightfully fragrant, and not too strong. We have an assortment of biscuits in the tins.

Hope you have a grand day.

Jaynebeth's Avatar Ah builders tea - strong (brutally so) and often sweet. This was illustrated by the builder who built our extension, his van had a snappy logo - "milk, 2 sugars please".

I feel I must side with you Bear and against the lady witch - macaroons are delicious and should probably form a staple part of the diet.

Faith's Avatar Scottish Heather tea sounds worth trying, but I am still smarting from your remark on my pic of the day - how can you even thinking of eating the little chicks? But yes, I do eat chicken, so a total hypocrite I supposeEmbarassed

Westerwitch's Avatar Pooooo I can't help if I don't like macaroooons . . . bleah . . . love the logo on Jaynebeth's builder's van - brilliant . . . I guess he could never go on a diet because he would have to have his logo re-done . . .

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I don't like macaroons either, WW. The bits get in your teeth. Give me a milk chocolate digestive any day - or every day, come to that.

Scottish heather tea is also rather nice and I do like a good macarroon.
