I made some red grapefruit from our tree, and Meyer lemon marmalade from scratch, a few days ago and tried it this morning for the first time. Pretty yummy, although it could have been a little thicker. Not bad for first time making any sort of preserves.

Good. Although no doubt the vile woman will try to appeal.

Y'know, I'm beginning to think it's fake news. I've scoured the Daily Mail from top to bottom over the past few days, and there's no mention of it. So I reckon it must be all those other newspapers conspiring to make it look like Hatie Cuntkins lost, when in fact the jury's still out. I mean, with the heavy weight of responsibility that comes with being the UK's most widely-read shitdrivel'n'liestrashcrapxenophobicwankrag, surely it would have reported the news had it been true. I think we should be told.

They're keeping quiet in case she finds a way to make them pay it for her.

Here's the text then, possibly not letting you view it as it's from ITV news.

<More than 2,000 runners will be punishing themselves on this year's 'Grizzly' along Devon's Jurassic Coast.

It is described as one of the toughest multi-terrain challenges out there and puts competitors through 20 miles of hills, bogs and three stretches of undulating pebble beach on a loop starting and finishing in the town of Seaton.

Musicians play at certain points along the course, entertaining the spectators and beating out a rhythm for the runners.>

What a lovely place to live. My parents lived on the Dorset/Wiltshire border when they retired, and last summer we were in Plymouth scouting out a possible uni for the Little Lion, so I know you have beautiful country on all sides.

Not as sunny as last year apparently, but still good, quite warm and the sun has just come out as everyone is packing up.

My grandson taking selfies always good for a smile. He is 2 years and a few months old and did a pretty good job with this one.

Very good luck to them.

I once walked 30 miles of the Jurassic coast.
