I think England MAY survive to go through from their Group stage ... but after that - I think it will be another disappointment.  As a dual national, LOL,  I have Australia to support too (But don't think they'll survive their Group stage)

Ah well, it seems like a well run competition..... cheers, Larry E.

Do you remember a black haired lad called Sid, I can't remember his second name but he was well known and quite a tough lad

Nope thats a bit vague for a name (Sid) - perhaps someone else can enlighten us ?

Have a good week...

I remember tater hash very well and make it as I remember from childhood some 60 years ago. The actual ingredient quantities are variable according to taste I think. I am sure there is no definitive recipe but what I will do is make it again as I usually do but this time measure all ingredients and record timings then send you my method.
I am sure the way I make it will be very similar to the way other Ashton residents have made it but I have no claim to any authenticity as I just make it as it was done at home in Ashton. Burlington.

Made Tater Hash today, so here is my take on it.


700gm of potatoes cut into half golf ball sized pieces
300gm of onions roughly chopped
300gm of carrots sliced into 0.5 thick "coins"
600gm beef mince
1 litre of beef stock ( I used a litre of water plus two Beef Oxo cubes )
Black pepper

1. Brown the mince making sure it is thoroughly broken up.
2. Put all the ingredients, including the stock, mixed thoroughly, into a suitably sized pan and bring to the boil.
3. Reduce to a medium simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are cooked. Test by pricking them with the point of a knife. They should be soft.
4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

You might need to add more fluid during the cooking process if it seems to be drying up.
Also try adding Worcestershire sauce.

I would be interested to see if this is similar to how other people remember it. Enjoy.

Hi Burlington... and thank you for this contribution I will pass it on to my wife who I'm sure will give it a go soon.

Much appreciated,

Larry E. (kenyon st kid)

Howdy to all,
Yesterday (here in OZ) was pancake tuesday... and we all continue to enjoy those - hey?

Therefore today being ash wednesday.... when I was a lad in Ashton (1950-60's) my Mam used to make Tater Ash - for our evening meal and I'm sure many here may still enjoy?

Can anyone help me with the genuine local recipe for Tater Ash - so that we (here in OZ) can continue with this wonderful food.

Have a nice day....

Many 'happy returns of the day" - to you.

Keep on - keeping on,

-Larry  :)

But, Kiwis are always way-behind - with most things eh?


Just checking the Women's World Rugby Cup Final and the Bledisloe Cup scores, nope, don't think so  ;)

Nope... those two just ain't - most things now are they!

Keep on dreaming

A consequence of all these alleged pervs being unmasked is that anything they appeared in over the years is going to be out-of-bounds as far as repeats are concerned. We've already seen that on Top Of The Pops. The impact on shows like Corrie and anything a certain Australian artist/singer appeared on will be enormous.
In NZ we're about 2 or 3 years behind the episodes of Corrie that are being aired in the UK so I s'pose it begs the question as to whether or not TVNZ will at some time in the future feel it necessary to edit out some stories involving certain actors who may or may not be guilty of being very naughty at some stage in their pasts  :-X

As for the aging wobbleboard player, he's always been about as popular as a fart in a spacesuit this side of the Tasman  :)

Hmmm.... We get episodes of Corrie here in Australia within 24 hrs of them being aired in UK.... you just need to know where to get them.  But, Kiwis are always way-behind - with most things eh?
