I am not sure I have posted this correctly but here it is. Cool eh? I will email as the phone won't be much good with no-one in the shop! View attachment 26589
Had a look for Kraken fabrics online and they are expensive.

My usual fabric shop is closed for now. They stock unusual prints which I regularly rifle but I've never seen anything like that!

I see he is live-streaming as well as some live gigs! sounds like an opportunity to me :)
A recent live-stream of The Mezzotint:


Obviously 2020 has imposed its limitations on the quality of the broadcast - it can't be a patch on seeing him live - but you'll get a good flavour of his embodiment of "Monty".

Under what circumstances would one want to press bacon?
To quote Amazon: "Bacon can curl, making it hard to cook evenly. Cast iron bacon press flattens the bacon, and other foods, keeping shape for even cooking". First World problem and requires large frying pan.
Some-one then asked the question "Does it leave a pig shape in the bacon ?". Answer : "no it doesn't". Bugger - I thought it did, although it sort of works on German spice biscuits.

I like quality products so couldn't resist this delightfully accurate Tower of Pisa mug. It's about the size of a half-pint mug and is a thing of, er, outstanding beauty, and only a quid too! How could I possibly resist?!

This week, I managed to pick up a first edition Harry Potter hardback for the princely sum of £3.50.

OK, before you all rush in to call me out for telling fibs, it wasn't The Philosopher's Stone (it was The Half-blood Prince, as it happens), but who knows - it still might be worth something one day!
