    I had to Google it as well Dina! (but if Doug had posted about finding a bottle of Harveys or Baileys then those would have been names that are much more familiar to me!!). I hadn't heard of Graham's 77 before (athough I've probably listened to some of Graham's 78's on the music threads LOL).

    I hope you are enjoying your discovery Doug - or are you saving it for a porticularly important occasion?

    Love

    Being a fan of TV quiz shows, I know the perfect 'Beast' for the party.

    His favourite subject is food, but he didn't know the answer to 'which pizza is topped with an egg?' (although I'm not an Egghead, I knew the answer to that one!) or the answer to 'what type of gas are crisp packets filled with?':-

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HA8rJLC-dl4

    I'd want the Beast on my table at the party - along with other bad boys, including my drinking partner Jack Daniels (so that we could have chocolate followed by whisky chasers!).

    Ellie's Eggheads might be drinking organic eggnog and perhaps Santa could provide them with some elfy fruit and nut snacks?

    I guess Doug and Barry might bring their worldly knowledge & experiences to the Eggheads table? - along with a cheeky offering of Graham's vintage port and a nice selection of cheese! LOL

    But will 'naughty but nice' Dina be tempted by the whisky chasers, eggnog or possibly port?

    Santa and Mrs Clever Claus could be quizmasters, with the questions being pulled from crackers kept in Santa's sack (mainly nice questions from Santa - but lots of naughty ones from Mrs CC I expect! LOL).

    Love Kayleigh x

    Ha ha ha! Being naughty means I go for the men every time. Iíd be spoilt for choice, wouldnít I? Who to choose, though? Ladiesí man, Doug - hmm, I wonder if heís married? Barry with his hidden depths - no, heís definitely married. Or Graham who, by all accounts, is maturing nicely...

    All this talk about food reminds me that I have to make a cake today for the walking group lunch tomorrow. I still socialise with the group which I accompanied in the early days following diagnosis and like the title of this thread started by Dina, for me it’s a celebration.

    I am making a chocolate and caramel tray bake. When I was working I would ask my colleagues for a tub of caramel but now I have to make my own.

    Have a great day everyone.

    So glad you've found an easier way to use your tablet, Dina. So important.

    Today's good thing is that I've discovered Gavin and Stacey on Netflix. No idea why I didn't watch it before but its hilarious. Loads more to watch before a Christmas special ! All I need is Barry's chocolate and caramel tray bake while watching.

    Love Debbie x

    Sorry Debbie there were 36 portions and they all went. I did manage to get one for myself however. It was so good to meet most of the group and I was well looked after because I was the only man on a table with 6 ladies.

    Love,
