Bramley cooking apples

Anyone know where to get them?
The rubbish, sweet, pappy apples used for cooking here so far have left me decidedly underwhelmed, and my roast pork without a suitable partner.

Festive bubbly this year is Backyard Vineyards' Blanc de Noir - very nice it is, too. Pass several wineries on the way home from work, so trying them all.

That's kind!
I have worked so hard - volunteering my time for free to get noticed and get a way in. It worked, though!

Thanks! It has seemed fraught and frantic so far. Every time we think it has calmed down and we can settle for a while, stuff happens.

Re: Three years today

Thanks, Steve!
We had a few issues early on that took a lot of sorting out. We were living here for two years, with a lot of aggro, before things finally were resolved.

Re: Four years and going strong

You have probably fished up near us! A bit "end of the line" up here.

Three years today

So, three years have gone by since I landed at YVR and I am thinking over what has happened in that time.

Agreed!
More tension, more bite, more danger, more sarcasm and black humour, more real bad guys, more evil, more conflicting emotions, more challenge!

Re: The new Doctor Who - no spoilers

I thought it was a bit muddled but not terrible.

Re: The new Doctor Who - no spoilers

I like him!

Re: The new Doctor Who - no spoilers

Yes, the whole DT cast was fabulous and gelled well, right down to Bernard Cribbins and June Whitfield.
