Further Back in Time for Dinner

Sunday, 22 January 2017

Greetings, shed-dwellers! There are now 35 of you - welcome to recent arrivals Pierre, Dan and Isabel. If you could nudge all your friends to pledge then we can get them in here too. Tell them how great it is in the shed. 

You may be interested to know that next week Further Back in Time for Dinner begins. Tune into BBC2 at 9pm on Tuesday (24th) for the first episode (of 6) and you will see me and my family cavorting around in Edwardian times. So here is a quiz question: in the year 1908 you will see me drink something unusual for breakfast. What is it? Post your answer here; and the sender of the first correct answer will be entitled to call themselves King or Queen of the Shed for the next week.

Could the answer be Vimto -- unusual in 1908 because first sold that year? It would surely also be highly unusual to drink Vimto at breakfast!

No Bob. That is a good guess, but you will have to watch the programme to find out the answer!

Nobody got it? The answer is that I drank a glass of raw beaten egg, to give me energy for the Olympics.

Aha! I forgot about the eggs! I thought it was something alcoholic because I remember you drinking lots of 'energy giving' booze that episode!!
Great episode :)
