I don't say they're poisonous, Tina Hannan just gave a not specific humorous warning :)

Actually from the ones I have done they are very nice, just don't try making the humbugs
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Too much water huh.

Did they correct that in subsequent printings?

Personally I have never read it. Can't find it.

No problem, it's advertised as available through abebooks which is my usual source for books I cannot find.

Saw The 39 Steps a couple of weeks ago. Very well done, really funny.

Nanny Ogg's Cookbook is worth a read, although I must confess to having never tried the recipies. I'm intrigued to see how they managed to adapt it to a play so I'm really looking forward to all the details Del. :wink: :lol:

It was very good, lots of in jokes for us hardened fans and a nice twist at the end with a Sir Terry look alike coming into Goatberger's office and trying get a novel published - about Rincewand and a tourist Zviegenblaum and their adventures, not on a disk but a sphere. (On a sphere, how ridiculous, the people would fall off!) He was turned away.

Not a bad adaptation at all and good performances from people who all have day jobs, and in one case, school.

And also snacks (sans special sauce):shock: , how can you go wrong?
