Marvellous dexterity...look how she has that teaspoon trapped!
Bill Phillips: Years of practice. I bet she never spills a drop either
There's nothing more important than a break... tea of coffee Bill... Henry Ford started that custom for his employees over a century ago....petersmile
Bill Phillips: He was a great innovator. ford's make some fine cars in Europe, they don't seem to make a profit though!
She looks all set up... I enjoyed the clip very much!!!
Bill Phillips: You would never guess that Jack Buchanan was actually Scottish!

She is staring into that cup as if she has just realised that she forgot to was the flask out from last year.
Bill Phillips: She does look less than enthusiastic about it

Excellent shot - where would the nation be without this vital ritual?
Bill Phillips: Doomed. Ange has a mug that says "Where there is tea there is hope"

Raw grain stalks and tea. Next it will be sherry and anchovies.
Bill Phillips: Whatever floats your boat my friend smile
Nothing like the well wanted cuppa at any time of the morning or afternoon.
Bill Phillips: I have one by my side as I type this!
This is such a civilized custom, Bill.

I like a nice cup of tea in the morning
For to start the day you see
And at half past eleven
Well my idea of heaven Is a nice cup of tea
I like a nice cup of tea with me dinner
And a nice cup of tea with me tea
And when it's time for bed There's a lot to be said For a nice cup of tea

What's that in those silver buckets?
Good treatment Bill and a good laugh at myself, slurping a cuppa!

As a good friend of mine used to say...

"You are not a salmon - take a break!"

I like the retained hint of green.
Bill Phillips: A twiddle with various sliders in lightroom!

Your friend was a wise person...look how salmon end up
You captured a most pleasant time of the day Bill! I like your treatment.
Bill Phillips: I have just drunk a nice mug of tea Richard. Last one of the day grin
Tea, don't get me started smile
Bill Phillips: I couldn't survive without it John

Flask tea is more disgusting than flask coffee
Bill Phillips: Not a lot to choose between them really. Anything out of a flask tastes disgusting
That looks more like a coffee pot!
