From: Wolfhound person
Date: 27 Jul 12 - 08:45 AM

Please can I call for the opening of the Mudcat tavern in a peaceful rural location (the middle of some woods, maybe)where I and others can leave behind the TV and other media for a few weeks, and enjoy sitting out in the sun listening to the wildlife, with long glasses of something refreshing, and in my case sparkling and possibly gingery.

Come the evening and the arrival of any bugs, skeeters, clegs or whatever your local nasties are, let's retire inside for some songs and tunes, but all without any electricity, PA or so-called news.

Anyone care to join me?

YES!! lemme in (please)

I'll be missing a lot of good radio next week (I don't have a TV) due to the bloody Olympics!

A retreat with my folkie friends is what I need. As it's a bit wintery here (probably summer-like according to some of you northern hemisphere types) I'd prefer somewhere a bit sheltered, with lovely winter sun.

Would someone squeeze a heap of lemons & provide some sparkling mineral water & I'll make my own cool drink.

I've recently discovered japanese peanut mochi do you have any in the tavern, or do I bring my own? Maybe I'd better bring as many boxes as I can find to share them around, tho if you all get addicted as I am ...

Sheltered and sunny sounds good to me - you can share the lemons I'm using, Sandra. I'm pretty sure the bar provides whatever we order or want to make, but I'd like to check with one of the regulars if they show up.
I'll see what there is in the way of salads and hot weather food in a bit.

For the moment I'm just happy to sit and listen to the silence, but some music later would be good. I'll check out my upright bass - haven't played it for months - otherwise it's Northumbrian pipes in that funny key we all use.

Ah, peace and quiet.

Seems to be, Ebbie. And the last users have left it reasonably clean and tidy, so maybe just opening up to air off, dust a little and let the breeze do the rest.

There's a stack of loungers in one of the back rooms, so there's room for plenty more folk, and plenty of corners to stack instruments safely out of the way in case anyone should arrive in a tearing hurry.

I've just taken delivery of a stock of my favourite refreshing drink:

which I mix up with sparkling water and ice - what can I order in for others?

I hate to say it, Paws, but your dream sounds exactly like my house on Mondays, when we have our Live Free and Pie jam! We live in the woods, in the one spot in North America apparently that is having just enough rain, coolish summer temps, and a goodly population of kindly, musical folks who would rather sit on our porch and play tunes for hours on end (with occasional breaks for pie) than stare at a tube and watch people run around a field (the universal expression amongst our friends when confronted with a potential threat, er, discussion around sports is "What shape is the ball in that one?").
You bring the ginger and/or lemonade drinks, I'll make pie. Come on in!

YES!! It's open!!! And all of the sports are on the greensward, where do not have to participate or watch and which is under a Dome Of Silence. But there are some interesting "venues," such as: javelin catching, the discus dodge, low jumps, pole waltzing, roller tennis, the equestrian scoop, synchronizing spinning, lawn boweling, skateboard sabre, tossing the cookies, sh*t put, footbowel, mosey racing, and for the really adventurous, the napathon. And these don't even include the "Spaw Specials!"

Inside, of course, is the jello pit (Hi, Squiddy!) and rest of the usual features. No television and no electronic reception of any kind. Just the murmur of conversation, the sound of drinks poured and consumed, the occasional scream from the jello pit, and the click of chips, the dealing of cards, and the random gunshot when someone has been caught stacking the deck.

Barwench, a pint of Bad Frog, please.

Chess is not a sport, is it? And it is quiet... I wouldn't mind a game or two in a quiet corner.

Allison A, I read that as "LiveR Free and Pie jam". How about removing that anomalous image from my mind?

Did anyone notice that veranda out back? As the day warms, I think I might take my glass out there. I noticed some comfy chairs.

Ah, good, it's getting lively. I like to laze about watching other people having fun.

Chess, tiddlywinks and morris dancing (in moderation) are all fine by me, but if you want to shoot something or talk about guns, please go to another thread and do it there. There's plenty to choose from. I guess its something about being this side of the pond.

My dogs'll see off any wildlife that ambles too near.

Break out the gin and lime, I'm enjoying this. Pie later is good, AllisonA. I do a reasonable chocolate torte:

which is good for when it cools off a bit, though I put more Amaretto in than the recipe, and occasionally add ginger.

Seems like a few of us are happy with this venue - me, I'm staying till the early autumn / fall. A hammock would do nicely, or one of the rooms near the top, with a view, if they're not already taken.

Then I can watch any passing wildlife as well as enjoy the scenery, the company, and the music.

I made a huge summer veg & cheesy casserole last evening and there's plenty to share. Anyone care for a bowlful to go with a glass or two of light red wine?

Onions, broad beans, aubergine, courgettes, tomatoes, broccoli, peppers and mushrooms all baked in layers with some pasta, and some garlic and coriander (this time - herbs variable to taste) then topped with cheese and browned under the grill with parmesan on top.

Sorry, no recipe, I just do it - but I feel well fed just thinking about it.

A light shower of rain overnight to refresh the mornings would be good sometimes: otherwise I think I'd like to join the permanent residents. Oh and not too many biting stinging things if we sit out of an evening.

Delightful.
