I'd just put the picture of Russ's grave up onto my journal and found that [livejournal.com profile] beastbriskett is dead.  As the tears run down my cheeks, I remember the two occasions I met Greg.  I'd wanted to meet him for a while, having had favorable reports from Russ's visit.  I met a sweet guy and we went to see the koalas at San Francisco zoo.  And did the sightseeing thing.  Basically, spent a pleasant day finishing off with burgers with Hoody.  I saw him again last November.  Obviously, since then he'd been sick, but I was still made more than welcome chez Beast and Hoody. 
And now he's gone.  Physically, at least.  Hopefully, his web presence will keep him near to us all.

Greg, I know there was an ocean between us but I'm still going to miss you.
Hoody, If ever you're over this side of the pond, please look me up.  Steve and I woudl love to host you.

So long, Greg.  Happy trails... xxxx

So, I was at the Stone Food and Drink Festival on Sunday - Stone happens to be about 4 miles down the road from the village where I was born; indeed, my birth was recorded at the Registrar in Stone.  But I digress.

The real reason for going to the festival was that certain hirsute TV chefs were doing their thing.  As supporters of the festival, Stephen and I had front row seats for their demonstration.  Dave was preparing Venison with Bubble and Squeak, Candied Shallots and a Sloe Gin glaze.  Si was preparing Black Pudding with Apple, Scallops and a Champagne sauce.  Recipes in "The Hairy Bikers Food Tour of Britain".  Or ask me nice and I will e-mail.

Anyroadup, Dave realises that he will need to cook the venison for 8 minutes and searches the audience for someone to time the roasting.  He scans and his eyes fall upon...

"Ah, Koala!"

Meanwhile, Si is making various threats - "You'd better get this right!"

"Trust me," I smile sweetly.

So, the venison is committed to the oven and I start my stopwatch, being heckled occasionally by Si.  I give a shout at eight minutes and the venison is removed from the oven.  However, Dave discovers that his oven was switched off, so, with 10 minutes of the demo left, they put the venison in Si's (working) oven, and request my services again.  Which I duly provide.  Eight minutes later, the venison is removed from the oven and tested.  It is declared perfect by The Hairy Ones.  At which point, Si, leaves the stage, commands me to stand up and plants a kiss on my forehead.  And I got a round of applause.

Not that it's gone to my head or anything...

Hairy Bikers roar in for city show (Express and Star, March 23rd. 2010)

According to a reputable source, Dave was overheard to say to Si in the interval "The koala is in the front row...!"

I managed to catch up with them afterwards.  But of course.

I have just booked a ticket to cook Indian food with the Hairy Bikers at the BBC Summer Good Food Show at the NEC in Birmingham next month!

Wish me luck!

...screamed the e-mail.  About bloody time too, thinks I, and searches out the lube, various toys and a can of spray-on chocolate mousse.  Then I read further and found it was a mailing about his latest TV show.

Damn.  Oh well, I can dream...

Yesterday, as I was out and about, I noticed the number of motorbikes out on the road, and it was difficult not to feel a searing rise of envy...
