With the recent arrival of our Baby Q Weber BBQ, the first rule of thumb was to try it out at home before we take it away in the caravan. After all - the cook doesn't want to look like he doesn't know what he is doing, does he? It's a new way of cooking on the BBQ for us, the meat goes on, and the lid stays down. Perhaps it would be a good idea to watch the video that came with it? Our first meal of pork sausages turned out extra delicious. It will be pork chops tonight - and we really want to try a roast one day soon.

There are twinkling Christmas lights strung around our small patio area, and even twisted around the flag pole. And talking of flag poles, we have two flags flying at the moment, our current flag, plus our pick of the new ones up for consideration. The first flag referendum has taken place, and our preferred flag took second place, not first as we had hoped. The second referendum to choose between the existing flag and the winner of the first referendum will take place in March 2016.
We are flying two flags today
And as a real pre-Christmas treat, Rita from our village had a visit from the Salvation Army Band to play outside her home. Once I heard those Christmas Carols start up, I walked down to enjoy the music and take a few photos. Just a shame more of the neighbours didn't venture outside and join in too. There is nothing nicer than those traditional Christmas Carols, is there? The band had been "doing the rounds", they told me and were heading off to their last stop of the evening, where they had been promised Chocolate Cake!
