And Now What You've All Been Waiting For- THE BERSERKIES!

It’s time for the Awards!

Epicurean Exploits Food Pic of the Year
This was a tough category. There were too many good ones to choose from, and I didn’t get enough votes for any one pic to chose a clear winner, so there are the 4 winning pictures:” onclick=“;return false;” onclick=“;return false;” onclick=“;return false;” onclick=“;return false;

Er, congratulations to LOS? Hmm, maybe not.

Alright! On to next year! [cheers.gif]

I’m honored. I would like to thank the little people that make this all so possible, but that’s not very pc these days…

Rock on!

Cripes, I’m chuffed as punch that people have been amused by my notes. Many thanks, lads and lasses.

It has been a top day for egomania in general. The somewhat illustrious publication The Times have a bloody great big picture of me as the new face of paranoid schizophrenia. I’m right up there on page 69, surely my immortality is assured!

I shall endeavour to maintain the mirth value in my notes, I’m rather pleased that people actually like them.


David, with genuine respect for the challenges you face with your illness, I must say that these two “honors” don’t seem entirely unrelated. [welldone.gif]

Fair comment, Ken, but then I feel it is terribly important to have a good laugh whenever possible. Especially about suggestive things.


Hey…wow. I won and I didn’t even know I was nominated. I would kill to be able to cook one of those right now and drain a bottle of good Pinot.

Not too long ago, I was taking stock of all the people who have been my friends in one way or another over the years (and there actually quite a few [cheers.gif] ). The only thing they had in common was a sense of humor. It is one of the most important qualities that makes us human.

This has quite the “open letter” feel, tell us more Ken…
