Train times

We're off to the South and West for a few weeks.
Travelling by train and boat rather than plane,
the trip itself is going to take a few days.
Blogging emissions will probably be low for a while,
but hopefully so will our fuel emissions .
This is not the engine we'll be coupled to,
ours will be much greener,
even if this one is great fun for the odd run.

Pancakes, please...

These are called "semlor" and eaten on Shrove Tuesday, floating in a puddle of tepid milk.
Fortunately Shrove Tuesday comes but once a year.
We get to eat pancakes all the other days; another good reason for living here.
