Plenty of food for thought on breakfast show
EATING habits have been a big talking point on my Sandgrounder Radio breakfast show of late.
If you missed it, I confessed to eating Cuppa soups straight from the mug, with a teaspoon. Slovenly I know, but there it is! As usual, my listeners double trumped me.
Debs in Ainsdale got in touch to say that her Grandad used to eat mashed up strawberries, mixed with milk, on brown bread and butter. Ewwwww! Bet he lived until about 110 thought.
Many thanks to John from McCarthy & Stone for inviting me down to Brunlees Court in Churchtown to spend the night in one of their luxury retirement apartments.
A long way off for me, but to be fair I was testing them out for my Aunty Pam. They are superb. Great restaurant on site too.
November is always a poignant month for me, remembering lost loved ones who served in our Armed Forces.
Liz Savage popped into the studio and officially launched the Poppy Appeal 2017.
Liz and a team of volunteers have ensured poppies are available across West Lancashire this November. Do buy one if you can. Finally, a blatant plug for Thursday mornings on my show.
The uber talented Niki Brook from Southport’s Lemon Tree Bakery joins me.
Pictured is a tasty autumnal treat, Fiery ginger Parkin. It was delicious. Niki bakes every Thursday at 10am.
Please join me weekdays mornings, 7-11am Live from Southport and across the North West on DAB Digital Radio, via our free mobile app and on line too.
