I promise to be right back on topic very soon but
* 2 cups flour
* 1 stick butter
* 1 cup of water
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1 cup of sugar
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 cup of brown sugar
* Lemon juice
* 4 large eggs
* 1 bottle Brandy
* 2 cups of dried fruit
Sample the brandy to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the brandy
again. To be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and
drink. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a
large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point
it's best to make sure the brandy is still OK. Try another cup... Just in
case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eggs and add to the bowl and
chuck in the cup of dried fruit.
Pick the frigging fruit up off floor. Mix on the turner. If the fried
druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the brandy to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt.
Or something. Check the brandy. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your
nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or some fink. Whatever you can
find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall
over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through
the window. Finish the brandy and wipe counter with the cat.
talking of which this is Jingle Bells in Swedish just in case you need a party trick over Christmas. I find it best to follow the recipe then walk into a party singing this at the top of your voice.
and Merry Christmas

Twice in one year is a scary thing from The Captain, all present at Glastonbury gave him a sage nod in the right direction after a bit of a belting live show. Ok he wanted loving a bit too much but we let him off with that.

That's 'guaranteed' if you make it back.
An Englishman travelling on a very dark night in the Welsh mountains heard a cry for help from someone who had fallen into a ravine near the road.
"Who is it?" he replied cautiously, fearing a trap.
"Dafydd ap Gwilym ap Rhys AP Gruffydd ap Ifan ap Jenkyn" came the response.
"Well", rejoined the Englishman, "if there's half a dozen of you down there you can jolly well pull eachother out."
