Tomato Sauces, Old Ideas and philosophy w/e

Tomato Sauce

Pumpkin Alley
We're having a good year for Tomatoes and Debbie's a big fan of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's recipes so we're using the tomatoes to make a variant of his sauce- it's worked well with minced  beef and we'll give it an outing with Meatballs and maybe a vegetarian variant too.

They're small
On the plot - today I've planted out carrot seedlings, Aubergines (baby ones) look like they can be picked but anything more than a starter will be pushing it but the Pumpkins will be a different matter!

Old Ideas

Having finished Big Ideas book I'm onto Old Ideas - Leonard's last album it really is good, the voice is quite something and the words (I think) mean something. Somewhat intriguing that the Going Home track (the most commercial I would say) is co-written with  the French Canadian Patrick Leonard who worked with Madonna on some of her biggest hits (For example Like a prayer).
It is interesting that the name Cohen means High Priest and Len is according to this site 'a heck of a guy'.

Philosophy Tomorrow and Now

Couple of events that have caught my eye are one is on Tuesday 3rd at Hero's Café Kingston (seems appropriate) it's entitled 'George Tomlinson on The Philosophy of Marx' and starts at 6:00 PM the other is an all day-er  (12 hours of Philosophy!) The Philosophy Now Festival 2013 at Conway Hall Red Lion Square on Sunday 8th  details here.
