Re: FAO Spades - Cooking advice

I think point 8 tells you that it's worth having a go. The word 'enjoy' says it all.

Did they have vegetarians in those days? Despite me having yet another birthday tomorrow I still don't remember those times.

No. It's a repeat. It's very good, as are most things starring Lee Ingleby, but not worth watching so soon after it was first shown (two years ago?)

Re: VE Day 1945 - What were your family doing?

My Dad was still a Far East POW. My Mum and I lived with my paternal grandparents and my Dad's six brothers and sisters. No bathroom, no electricity, an outdoor hole-in-the-ground loo. I was a month short of my 3rd birthday.

We were all waiting for VJ day.
