Hey!
What's your talent?
Would you like to share just a little with your friends at S@H?
Pictures of paintings you've done? Poems you've written? Your incredible video of a pristine performance of you on 1st violin playing some Bach fugue?
Share a little something with us.

I can walk and chew gum at the same time. Other than that I'm useless.

Ok, the truth is I am only ambidextrous.

You do realise that Sarge will roast our nuts on an open fire. I think he meant this thread to be serious.


Very sorry, I guess my first post set the tone of the thread. All I meant was to poke fun at my lack of talent

What can I say...
I know that beating egg whites poses no problem....I know from experience that a swift wrist action can make almost anything stand up stiffly.

Oh lordy, I think I'd better stay outta this one .... ;-))

LOL.....wise man knows where not to tread.

I usually walk in the door when it has been opened.......

That was a favorite saying of an old friemd of mine.
When making a rather, shall we say, robust statement, and reviewing the aftermath, he would say..........

As a matter of fact, quite the opposite is true. Room temperature egg whites beat up far higher than chilled ones.

At last, someone who appreciates my culinery skills.

I'm not just a pretty face.

Although Sidney seems quite taken with my attributes...but he won't tell me which ones....the tease.

Shhh....I have heard that my good friend Sidney is quite skilled at polishing his Aspidistra.

But don't let on that I told you.

I seem to have a talent for doing jobs nobody else wants to do, and having them mostly turn out successful. They say there is no rest for the wicked or the multi-talented, so I must be one of the latter.

I'm also getting really good at giving funerary orations for departed Veterans. I attribute that to too much practice, especially lately. But if it helps ease the pain of those left behind....

And it doesn't hurt that there is usually a pretty good feast after the funeral, to refresh the memories and share stories (some only a little embellished).

My beloved Mrs Miggins is indeed correct that seeing to my Aspidistra is a consuming hobby of mine, and a final application of button polish gives it quite a shine. I might also somewhat modestly say that I can expertly jiggle a couple of balls in a pocket, but Miggins insists that I restrict that to the snooker room.

With warmest regards,
