You know,...

...I think I might have eaten enough rabbit.

'Nother day.

Cycled to the tiny but rather lovely Newlands Wood 'twixt Penkridge and Huntingdon yesterday.

I was out looking for a few late boletes to fry up. No luck, but I did find this inedible but attractive bit of coral fungi - 'Golden Spindles', I think, 'Clavulinopsis fusiformis'.

I cycled towards home down the canal path...

...and then stumbled upon my next-door neighbour & the canal boat he's doing up.

I then rode on and had a look round Acton Trussell Churchyard...

(spent a while thinking the stuff you inevitably think in churchyards) & then pedaled home to scoff the last of the day before yesterday's rabbit stew.

Autumn comes to Hubert's herbal windowbox

Look away, foodies.

Spy Birch Boletes under tree (Birch tree, in fact) whilst cycling into town. Pick them, take 'em home, chop up, fry with butter and add a couple of beaten eggs (try not to think about cholesterol levels), cook till done.

Then what? Serve with exquisite salad of rocket, fine herbs & ciabatta croutons?

Or slap it onto a steaming lake of microwaved beans?

The latter. Yum bum.

Trump to bankrupt pensioner who argued with him

Molly Forbes challenged billionaire Donald Trump in the courts over the compulsory purchase of her home to make way for his giant Scottish golf course. She couldn't get legal aid and now nice Mr. Trump is trying to force her to pay court fees totaling nearly £50,000 (plus a hefty amount on top of this for 'inconveniencing' him). More here.
