      Fans of the legendary Fanny Cradock, may be interested in showings of her mid-70's Christmas programmes, are on BBC download and schedules.

      No faffing abbout like present day TV cooks, she just gets on with the job in hand, the old ways are the best ways.

          Lol, not in these 70's programmes, they're only short 15 minute ones, with basic sets.

          It's no doubting Fanny wore the trousers in their household........"Not in the Albert Hall Johnny !!"....

                  Talking about refreshing honesty....it's time some of those cheesy Xmas pop lyrics told the TRUTH! (to the tune of Shaky's 1985 hit "Merry Christmas Everyone"):

                    Here's a British ad i found - i posted it on the ff net forums but got no response - about the Nativity scene... did they have to to put all those pearl necklaces on that young girl? Maybe they were trying to make the costume look homemade? I think most angels might take exception to the idea that they wear pearls.

                      Oh heavens, picky, picky! It's just little children enjoying dressing up! A typical school nativity, done all over the western world every year; been going on for decades.

                      Perhaps you could check with the ones you know? While you're about it, also ask what they think about the tinsel headdress and the tinsel-tipped wings. I mean...... TINSEL! Really!! Surely they would take exception to that!

                          Yes, there was a piece on one of the papers the other day about a nativity play in Stevenage, I think it was. Several weeks ago the 9-year old children were cast for their roles, and Andrew was determined to play Joseph, and stretched his arm out of its socket shouting: "Miss, miss, me miss, please, please...." She cast another boy and made Andrew the inn-keeper.
                          There were lots of rehearsals and a couple of "dry runs" and all went well. On the night of the performance, with the Mayor in the front row, it was going well until Joseph and Mary arrived at the inn. The inn-keeper answered the door, and Joseph said: "Is there any room at the inn?" The inn-keeper replied: "Well, Mary can come in but you can p*ss off, because I should have been Joseph." Curtain.
