Your robot reminded me of this little fellow, Michael. Terrible flash glare but like him.

Whoa! He reminds me of the Muppet Show! I can imagine a few of them jangling in a crazy robot dance routine to a old 80's synth hit- The Human Leg or Kraftwerk.

Does he have a name? Does he have an occupation?
Are you sure he's a he? Does he have any hobbies?
Does he like nut roast?

Just curious.

Roger, am sure that in his No-Name society, there are undulations of praise for a proper Nut Roast. Likewise, in this world, one will prepare same and hopefully not get those sticking parts Michael claims. Will have to oil Michael up. Actually, Roger, quite looking forward to serving your recipe. Nut Roast sounded inviting..the onion/Port gravy did it for me!

I can't remember how I did the gravy, It went soomething like - fry a chopped up onion, a couple of cloves of crushed garlic and a spoonful of fresh thyme in some butter with a small spoonful of sugar for about 10 - 15 minutes until the onion goes soft and it starts to caramalise. Then add a glass of port. Boil it and reduce it by half. Then add about a pint of vegetable stock and simmer for another twenty minutes. I then thickened it with some cornflower and strained it into a gravy boat.

Hope that helps.

Yummy yummy yum.
