    Hiya , Im Baccy !

    Have been recommended this site by she who shall be nameless !!!!

    I live in the Garden of England (Kent) am married, have three grown up daughters, a grandaughter- oh yes and a husband of nearly 24 years!

    I have a very small garden which I enjoy pottering around in. not brilliant with plant names etc, but if I like the look of them I give it a go in my garden.
    We have also just bought a property in Greece, so if you dont see much of me in the summer, then thats where I am.

    I have a really mad sense of humour and love to have a laugh with people.
    So apologies in advance for that!!!!

    See you made it then? Glad you decided to drop by. :smt041 :smt041
    Plenty of fun things to do around here as well as the more serious stuff so
    sit down with a nice hot cuppa and have a look see for yourself. Hope you approve and decide to stay. :D

    EJ you probably remember Baccy from the RG boards a long time ago. :)

    Welcome to GardenStew Baccy :smt031 That's an interesting name, do explain. Nice that you know a few faces in here already, that always helps :D

    I lived in Malta for a year and a half so I know what a Mediterranean summer is... and it's hot, hot, hot :smt119

    Great to have you here :smt023

    Hello from Ohio, USA. What part of Greece? I have been to Athens, Thesalonika and the island of Corfu. I liked Cofu the best. Very pretty and nice weather in the summer too. Some of the bluest skies I have ever seen.

    HeyFrank, I had my first and last raw octopus in Malta. If I hadn't had 6 or 8 beers, I don't think I would have gotten it down. It was fresh too. Was still wiggling when the guy cut the tentacle off and skinned it. :D

    Hi Capt,

    Can't say I savoured raw octopus but I did have some cooked octopus there and it was delicious. You must have been quite intoxicated to eat raw octo :smt030

    Thanks for the welcome everyone :D

    The name Baccybabs came about because I needed a name change as I was being 'stalked' by someone on line. My friend was visiting at the time, and as she rolls her own cigs, I used Baccy, the Babs bit comes from her second name ..


    Re Greece .. We have house in Western Crete in a tiny typically greek village called Melissourgio, near Kolambari. We only bought it last year, but eventually we shall live there permanently.

    I adore all greek food, especially the seafood .. !!!!!!!

    Anything else you want to know, please feel free to ask...btw have you seen my posting in 'Pets' ?

    :D
