Do you know who was involved?

Did you see a street fight last last weekend?

If so, you are needed to come forward to solve this crime and identify the perpetrators as caught late at night on video camera!

Pullans Family Butcher’s shop window was put-in, possibly accidentally, by a couple of play-fighters after a night out in the pubs this last weekend.

Thursday: normal service resumes – new window fitted

Replacement window fitted today

 

At cottingham.tv and with Halloween Festivities in mind, we’re having a ‘kindness to carrots’ day!

How to enjoy eating your greens – even if they are orange!

Vegetables needn’t taste awful -with these few basic cooking tips from Cottingham.tv you too can make them taste great!

Vegetables needn’t taste like medicine – as something that has to be endured rather than enjoyed. In fact, the Victorians had a dreadful old maxim: the worse a medicine tasted, the more it did you good. Indeed our puritanical, no-frills approach to food preparation and cooking still persists today out in the regions!

How to avoid murdering your vegetables to death!

continued ..

Despite all the TV cooking programs out there, in this northern region and I’m sure in many others, our 1970s school dinner-style fried or boiled mentality persists where children are made to eat their greens and clear their plates!

Even your kids will like them!

continued ..

Here at Cottingham.tv we’ve added an autumnal twist so you can enjoy eating your greens! continued ..

continued ..

it’s better for you, better for the kids and better for the carrots!

continued ..

continued ..

N.B: If you want separate carrot servings, after grilling your carrots on an oven tray under an open oven red-heat grill for 20 minutes as described, you should leave them in a closed oven covered in cooking foil with some added boiling water on 150 degrees for a further hour to cook them through thoroughly – you can add other vegetables as described. Remove smallerveges when they are browned!

Pumpkins are “squashes” like aubergines and courgettes and they will also respond well to this kind of cooking – but please note they have shorter cooking times – but you need to experiment!

Happy Halloween from Cottingham.tv!

Visiting The Ferguson Fawsitt, Walkington

Renowned for its excellent meals providing some of the best value pub food and dining in the region!

A square deal for a square meal – with greatly appreciated consistent quality and variety – the editor is a long-repeated Sunday lunch-diner there since childhood and it remains a firm favorite!

 

Visiting Walkington

Quack! Quack!

We return to the theme of ducks and geese – how could we resist!

Duck Island takes centre-stage (centre-left)

 

Walkington is famous for its duck pond – providing a watering hole for both geese and ducks!

And of course, the duck house on the pond is easily missed if you don’t get out of the car and have a look round (next to the long pond grass)! For those in the know, a walking path exists signposted from the spot we’re standing on whilst photographing this)

Please shut the gate afterwards for some obvious reasons and other less-obvious ones – it’s part of the Countryside Code!

Alternative Ways Of Connecting With The Electorate – Cottingham.tv is like Barrie McKenzie also on a ‘cultural mission’!

Barry ‘singing for his supper’ for John Lennon in a VW camper van: ‘strewth, starve the lizards – I’m so thirsty I could drink out of a Japanese wrestler’s jockstrap!

These are just the introductory-level salvos of a barrage of increasingly irreverent jokes comprising colourful metaphors – used with connect with the audience quick-fire – and make them buy lots of tins of Fosters lager to quench their thirst in the process!

Edna Everage plays the ‘straight guy’ as the ‘voice of constraint’ and Tommy Cooper plays Arthur McKenzie  read on ..

 

Lou Reed: Walk On The Wild Side

Lou Reed’s “Walk On The Wild Side” (1972)

The editor was blown away when he first seriously listened to this in ’70s! It’s hard to think he passed on just over a year ago!

Lyrics for performing artists  – and Lou’s support band Velvet Underground

What songs from the ’70s really impressed you? Did you also want to hitchhike across the USA!

Do you listen to the lyrics or is it melody that attracts you?

For me it was always the melody rather than the message!

Changing trends, interests and technology: nothing stands still!

It all got too loud back then as we made the transition from the teenybopper Dansette gramophone player through Marshall valve power amps to today’s  industrial strength miked PA systems which have all but drowned out the lyrics! It is arguable that the lyrics in hard rock were the main issue! However, none of us are getting any younger sadly – or more tolerant!

Then upon learning some piano comping, thanks to the kind support of local musician Paul Rogers as a budding amateur ‘quieter’ jazz musician it tended to be the score I embraced rather the melody.

Let us know your musical interests and recordings and we will be pleased to feature them here!

We are keen supporters of the Cottingham Springboard which promotes live music in the region performed by musicians in Cottingham pubs and clubs .
