My husband & I went to the cinema yesterday afternoon with some friends to see “Dunkirk”.   It was a very intense film.

My Dad was one of those soldiers that was taken off of “the beach”.   I knew nothing of this until after my Mother died and Dad came over to stay with us for a couple of months.   Like most people that had been to war he told us nothing,   Over the course of the years, he would tell my bothers and I some of the “funny” stories but that was about it!   Dad & Dan (my husband) were talking over a beer one evening when Dad told us some of his stories including being taken off of “the beach”.   He was very casual about the whole thing.   The first boat that picked him up was blown up and he was finally fished out of the water by another boat and taken home.   He was very badly injured and was convalessed for three months.   When Dad finally recovered he was told that he was going to be sent to a nice, safe home posting – to London – to do UXB (Unexploded bombs) for the rest of the war.   Some safe posting.   Again, he did not really talk much about this part of his life.   He was always very positive about most things.

After seeing that film, I am amazed that Dad ever made it home.   My bothers and I, and in turn, my own son, grandson and nieces would certainly not be here now.

We have a lot to thank all of these hero’s for, for the lives we now have.   I wished we could have learned our lessons from that war so that we would stop murdering each other.   We have a beautiful world with a lot of incredible people in it – let enjoy our world and each other.

Claire Bowman Cake Lace mix (# 18280) is an innovative new product that allows one to make edible lace for wedding cakes, celebration cakes, cupcakes – wherever your imagination takes you!

Mix according to the manufacturer’s instructions, spread onto the silicone mat (using icing spreader # 1325) and place in the oven at 80 degrees C (175F) for 12 – 15 minutes.   Remove from the oven and allow to cool for five minutes.   Carefully remove from the mat and the lace is ready to use.   Cake lace may be made ahead of time and stored for 2-3 months as it will stay moist and pliable.   Double wrap each piece in greaseproof paper and store flat in a zip-lock bag.

The lace may be coloured when mixing, and/or dusted with pearl dust before attachment to your project.   It may also be hand-piped if mixed and left to stand overnight (covered) to allow the air bubbles to dissipate.

The uses and designs for this product are endless.

We have just returned from our Son’s wedding in Florida.   Our son is a police officer and his new wife works with a dermatologist.

Actually getting there was quite an adventure.   The night before we left, we received a text from US Air that our flight had been delayed for approximately 40 minutes !   Based upon this information, we arrived at the airport at 6.00 am the following morning, went through security only to find that the flight was delayed a further hour!!   The long and short of it was that we were delayed three hours and were sent to five different gates before actually boarding our flight.   To add insult to injury, we were delayed a further 30 minutes because the pilot said that we had to “wait for catering as they were empty”.   Why bother, the airlines don’t really serve anything unless you are charged an arm and leg anyway!

I had shipped my decorating tools down the week before and had baked and frozen the wedding cake and desserts and shipped them overnight so that I could start decorating when we arrived.   As you can imagine, I was somewhat stressed at the delay.  It was quite a feat getting everything finished but all turned out well at the end of the day.   A beautiful wedding.

As my husband pointed out, it would not behove anyone to make the mistake of trying to rob the wedding party – about half of the guests were police officers 🙂
