The SW Supporters Group meet-up beforehand
Still can't put our chances away or make pressure count.
|Maybe this wicket|

isn't as batsman-friendly as everyone thinks. England's bowlers certainly making hay.

|A bit of a conundrum|
at 10:44 22 Dec 2019
When the problem is the Owner, the Manager and a large proportion of the players (depending upon who you ask), what is to be done?

at clubs who sacked their managers while at the top end of whatever division they were in.
Now, at least for some, it is a genuine dilemma. A fear that he may end up costing us a vital promotion has put us in that place.

Put the cat among the pigeons somewhat!

The situation with the NZ volcano, where locals are demanding that rescue personnel risk their lives by going onto the island (despite warnings of increasing danger) to retrieve the bodies of those who are already dead. Fair enough if there was any chance of survivors, but there isn't.
Why is there this urgent need to collect the remains, when it could lead to further - IMO unnecessary - deaths?

Not actually from the Conservatives ("working4uk"), doesn't mention them by name, but denigrates all other parties and prints a load of alarmist statements about money.
They really ought to ban these organisations - evidently allied to political parties - from sidestepping the rules about campaigning on the day (and the overall financial restrictions).

'How long can you justify a system whereby everybody who has a TV has to pay to fund a particular set of TV and radio channels?'
As long as is necessary to protect public service broadcasting, minority content and quality programming (especially radio). Also to defend it from commercial and political interference.

I'm staying down in Taunton, a few miles from the epicentre. Quite a noticeable shake of the house.

Almost at parity with NZ. The weather may do for this Test Match, but England are making a decent fist of it.

|What is the best formation|
at 09:53 27 Nov 2019
with the players we have available (allowing brief absentees, but not longer-term ones such as Lankester or Sears)?
I ask this because I doubt we'll actually get a widespread consensus. Our squad is not actually that well balanced in terms of positions, quality and form.
Edit: Specify which players go in which positions.

|Question for TWTD vegans - and lactose intolerants|
at 21:08 25 Nov 2019
Or chefs, for that matter.
What do you use to take the place of cream and butter when making sauces? Also, are there any brands of margerine which do not contain buttermilk?
I've tried some of the the cream substitutes (e.g. Elmlea), but they just separate badly, resulting in a nasty mess.
Reason I'm asking is because I sometimes cook for lactose intolerant friends and want to expand my options.
