Talkeaoke

Some pix from yesterdays Talkeaoke event at Brierfield Library.
There was young Jack and Leanne (with Mikey on the mic).
and Andrea from 'Stroke' and the local dance legend Roy Stewart...
 and David from 'Stroke' who shared his first hand experiences with the group...
 Jack putting things across diplomatically...
 Lynne took some time out from tweeting to get involved in the discussion...

a pan
tea bags ripped open
added to a tad of water
with lots of sugar and seeds from 3 green cardamoms
boiled rapidly


with a lid on to trap in the steam
