    Turkey needs to be well basted. Put butter and salt under the skin then smother it with a favourite sauce and it will cook succulently like any other white meat.
    If you cook it dry for hours it will be tasteless.

    Turkey's so underrated. I'll be using a week Thursday's Thanksgiving (22nd November) as an excuse to have it then too, in solidarity with our American posters.

    Would urge everyone to watch it.
    One of many sad aspects was that those who returned were often treated as pariahs. No-one back here had any concept of what they went through and in truth weren't interested.
    Some job offers excluded ex-servicemen.
    My great grandad won the military medal but found work hard to get and struggled generally. Sadly that pattern is still around with today's servicemen. Many of those on the streets were formerly in the services.
    We should never forget.

    Did anyone watch the thing They Shall Not Grow Old thing where they edited all the old B&W WW1 footage to be in colour with sound?
    It completely did my head in. It went from being grainy old silent movie footage to real people - click play on the link in that tweet ūüėģ

    I've never seen anything completely stop on the 11th. There's just an agreement that we all try to be quiet for a minute or two, which is reasonable and appropriate so far as I'm concerned.
    WW1 is so important because it was the first time that the futility of war really entered the public conscience. A war that was technically won, but so little was gained. In fact, so much was lost by the European combatants that the continent has never truly recovered.

    There is no single "purpose of remembrance", in my opinion.
    Whether it be standing in bowed silence, donating time, money, or effort, wearing a poppy, or stood looking for familiar names on granite walls, the purpose is personal and individual.
    My thoughts at 11am this Sunday won't solely be aimed at those lost in The Great War.

    Anag Ram reacted to Lambchop in Remembrance   
    Well yes. I'll rephrase; a purpose of remembrance is to ensure that we learn the lessons of history, and don't make the same mistakes again.
    I'm not convinced we have learnt those lessons, so remembrance continues to be relevant for future generations.

    5 year old Miss Wolfie was telling me this morning about what she's learned this week about WW1 and she ended by saying how awful it must have been and that she hopes there is never another world war (she knows about WW2 as well).
    On that basis alone, no, it isn't time to move focus away from WW1.

    This type of defeat is always a possibility playing, as we do, with more ball players than defenders.
    Let's not bemoan the way we play just yet.
    Frank will have learned a lot today.

    Davies was down injured for a long time on his first game back. I think Tomori will start today.
