"Cook" Morningside Road, Edinburgh.

Painted the cables and the supporting brass posts - both in leaf green - using acrylic paint.

Last night's dinner:



There's a shop in Morningside Road, Edinburgh, which sells frozen gourmet meals. On a whim, went in for a look and, turning down the offer of a taste of the curry on offer, decided to buy the Coq au Vin.

You cook the meals from frozen in approx an hour (or Microwave for several minutes). I used the oven. Absolutely first rate. And at £7.50 for two people, (plus some boiled potatoes), excellent value.

Here is a song that will fit with the disco rhythm that I have shown you. It has its own bongo part which is a bit different but a similar feel. Again this is faster than we have been doing it.
