Just happy that carnivorous dog isn't eyeballing her foot like in the previous photo.

Hi Ryan,

I just wanted to thank you so much for your whistle lessons online - I am an Irishman living in London, who is currently very appreciative.

Other than kind comments, I'm not sure how people reciprocate the generosity of your lessons, so I decided given the St. Patrick's day theme, and spotting your interest in cooking in your blog, to offer you my mother's Irish soda bread recipe - it is easy to make, and very tasty; (I know this may appear very very bizarre but it is my way of saying thanks for the lessons);

450g White Flour
1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
1 teaspoon salt
425ml of buttermilk (if you can't find buttermilk, stir a large spoon of natural yoghurt into regular milk).

Sieve the flower, salt and soda into a bowl. Add the buttermilk and mix. Pour into a bread tin.

Preheat the oven to 230 degrees Centigrade. Put the loaf into the oven for 10 mins at 230C, then turn the temperature down to 200C and bake for another 20 mins.

Your friend Karen Hall sends the following Easter greetings, posted on Deal Hudson's website:

"The Jesuits were largely responsible for my conversion, too. Luckily, I kept going after that and converted myself to Catholicism."

Don't worry, though, she loves the Jesuits, and you should disregard any suggestion she's filled with hate toward you and yours.

Alleluiah, He is Risen!

Did Karen Hall really write that? I can't find it. If she did, it pretty much exposes the lie behind her bs about why she even has that blog. Does she just want to criticize people she knows won't give her back what she dishes out? If so, that's pretty cowardly.

There's no need to hunt to see what Karen Hall really wants...just read Mark Mossa's blog....
