    3. You are on Tumblr! Can my Reader follow??? I will try.
      Meanwhile, I will look around and see if I can find some young children to dunk in syrup. I will blame you if I am arrested.

    5. Do they just pop up in the buckets? Do the buckets have to be attached to a tree?
      Sx

      Delete
    6. Attached to a maple tree preferably! Maybe you don't know how we harvest the sap of maple tree.

      The bucket is the old way of doing things. It takes about 40 litres of sap to produce 1 litre of syrup.

    7. Oh and there's not much happening on my Tumblr. I basically only repost pictures of kittens and puppies along with some gorgeous landscapes and some food porn, all intertwined with wisdom quotes which must be boring as hell since everybody reblog that stuff but none of us actually put them into practice in our life. ;)

      Hugs

    1. Monsieur Pain: Thank you! Now that I have Mogwash out of my system I am feeling more settled... AND, the good news is that Mogwash got me back into the habit of blogging again.
      Anyone who is unaware of my recent endeavours might be confused by this comment... but we know, don't we, M.Pain!

    1. Lulu: It is okay to mention cake here, nothing bad will happen, other than I will eat it all.
      Is Luft cake particularly light and airy?

  15. Glad the witch is dead. Not that I ever noticed her, which tent was she in? Was it the one with the broomstick parked outside? And the evil cackling coming from inside? Kept me awake all night, it did. These witches never seem to sleep.

    Ms Scarlet, the comments on your blog have reached a new peak of surrealism. If only Mr Dali were still alive to appreciate them.

    1. Nick: I am sure that we haven't quite reached the summit of surrealism, but we shall try!

  16. Well, as I can't think of anything else after discovering that Jon beat me to it:

    (in rubbish Gladys Pugh accent) "Sylvia! Get your great long legs off the table!"

    * ignores witch comments as understands they're not personal - After all, this witch would never deign to stay in a tent *

    1. Mr Devine: No, I have never stayed in a tent either, nor swayed gently in a hammock on a lazy summer afternoon. Too many bugs for my liking.
      I always wanted Sylvia's legs. It was never to be.

  17. I never got rid of the link to this blog either. And I have to make that Berliner luft cake... it looks amazing! It will soon be Thanksgiving here in Canada (on the 13th) and I may want to make this for our family gathering.

    Other than that, whatever pops up on here is fine with me. Just happy to see you back in action, Scarlet!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ponita: I doubt I'll ever give up on this blog completely... the posts may be sparse, but I reckon they'll always keep coming. Thank you!
    I will buy a nice cake for the 13th [I'm not Mary Berry] and celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving!

  22. I watched a television programme the other day presented by the lovely Gladys, it was on the Yesterday channel from Butlins to Benidorm she was wearing full make-up. High camp indeed.

  23. You've posted! And you have so much to say! (I've got it right, just the two words?)
    I wondering if this is Proust or Chance the Gardener?

    1. Oh dear, Nick, has the Avon lady been moody again? Mine ran out of soap on a rope... more of a hoo-ha than a ding dong.

    1. Hello, Mr Wells! I'm glad you found me... yes, this is my old blogspot blog... but I'm not a regular updater, I'm afraid.
      I am missing Mogwash... so, there might be further posts on Wordpress... crikey, I am all over the place!

  27. You know you can't leave this post up here as the current one for too long. The ringing will resonate within the inter tubes of the web and drive your followers mad. I suggest you move on to perhaps the ding-a-ling.
