From 2014 post

Chicken version -Marinate boneless chick thighs in a creamy yogurt mixed with a dash of cinnamon, black lime powder, olive oil and salt to taste. Grill till crispy brown. Wrap in warmed pitta bread with fresh tomatoes, onion and a swish of garlic mayo

Lamb version ( my preference)....marinated and cooked the same....Wrap in warmed pitta bread with fresh tomatoes, onion , mint, garlic except a swish of Tahine sauce....Yeeeeaaahhh. The tahine sauce makes all the difference with the lamb version.

To make the Tahine sauce :-

Tahini sauce for shawarmas

Try this method, 150 ml tahini paste. 150ml water. 80ml lemon juice. 2 crushed garlic cloves. 1/2 tsp. salt. 30gm flat leaf parsley, finely chopped. Whisk tahini, water,lemon juice,garlic & salt until creamy & smooth. If it's too thick add more water. Stir in the parsley. Whisk again.

black lime powder = dried limes which are then grated to a powder

All the best

Brexit aaaallll the way !! Nowt wrong with Churchill - up there with the best of them - and then you have the also ran wimps - like Major, May, Brown - clueless with no vision or backbone - happy to be subservient to a bureaucratic cesspit called the EU - which is in the gradual, inevitable process of collapse.  Hope I get to see it in my lifetime.

My eldest daughter is an Alexander Technique practitioner ( I know - wtf is that? Google it!).  Obscure subject to say the least!  She would often grab me as a bod to practice on when I visited her - which didn't impress me as a 'non- believer'.

After qualifiying, she told me she wanted to write a paperback basic introduction to the AT system to enable the public to get a grasp of the subject - since all written matter to date on the subject was off putting to say the least.

Having trained and managed sales reps for many years - and listened to their gripes about how crap secretaries were in typing up their reports for customers, I would always point out to them that the typists only typed what they as reps wrote - rarely bothering to read their hand-written  matter or attempt to understand it.  Part of their training would then become the art of writing up a report that is simple to understand - even for a layman - without jargon, and is succint, short and to the point.

So when my daughter expressed this wish to write an easily understandable intro booklet to AT, I gave her the benefit of my rep report writing training stuff to utilise in her approach on this obscure topic.  The end result has won her considerable acclaim with the public and her AT peers.  Her name is Angela Bradshaw if you want to look her up - link the name to Alexander Technique.

Beyond belief that such 'bravery' is inflicted on an already defenceless wounded animal.  Target practice indeed !  I hope an 11 ft kangaroo related to the deceased decides to jump him at a later date.

A good m8 of mine was an armourer with the MoD.  He was also a Bisley pistol champion.  Like most people in the sport / work, he had a fair collection of legit guns.  One day, him and his missus went off to work - each thinking they had locked up - but neither had checked their back door!  Sure enough they found they had been burgled via the unlocked back door when they got home & worst of all his gun cabinet had been forced open. Missing was a shotgun, 0.22 live rifle and a magnum 0.45. He reported this himself at the local nick in Widnes - where they detained him for 48 hours & gave him very intense interrogation over the 2 days - then releasing him.  The shotgun was found thrown into a field nearby - but no trace of the other 2 guns.  A fortnight later CID called on him and his missus saying there would be no charges brought against him for the gun loss - but said a strange thing to his missus as they left - asking her why it was she varied her route to work in Liverpool.  Turns out they had both been under surveillance for 10 days - cops concerned they may have been involved with say the IRA or similar - allowing the guns to be nicked !  Fair put the brownstuff up my m8 Steve.


BSA Airsporter

Until 1997 i had amongst others a Colt Python :smile:

Airsporter legal without need for licence and more than adequate for the vermin job.  Late Uncle of mine was a gun club member - had all sorts in his time .38, luger,magnum, derringer, beautiful .22 target pistol - sadly all turned in with gun laws changed.
