Listography: 5 of the Best…

KateTakes5’s Listography this week is 5 Bests. Great theme. Here’s my selection…

BEST AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY (mine, that is!) 
From a paraglider, soaring high above our honeymoon villa in Corsica, waving to my wife and kids. Coo-ee!

BEST FOOD PORN WEBSITE

I can’t afford ANYTHING on this site, but it doesn’t stop me checking in on a regular basis just to have a good drool!

BEST STAND-UP COMEDY SKETCH

Cheeky Scottish laddie Kevin Bridges routine about being picked on by a mugger at a bus stop

BEST WAY TO CHOP AN ONION
This technique – performed with deft skill by my good self and filmed by the multi-talented missus – is tried and tested by chefs. Although looking at it now, I should have used more of a ‘claw’ hand to prevent me chopping my fingers off.

BEST PARENTING TECHNIQUE
Give your kids the illusion that they’re in control. For example, if you want them to go to bed, give them the option of ‘in 15 minutes, or in 10 minutes – it’s your choice .’  Never fails, though it will still end up being half an hour, regardless.

BEST EMOTIONAL GUITAR SOLO
Gary Moore’s Parisienne Walkways, Live.

  1. I love the pictures in the first one – what an experience. Interesting post.

  2. I’ll remember that parenting technique for when my LO is older. Corsica loves brilliant from up above!

  3. I have never mastered chopping an onion properly. Thanks so much for the tutorial. I owe you so much, culinarily (is that a word?)…

    I’d have more confidence in the onion demo if it wasn’t for the plaster on your finger 😉 This was take 2 I presume.

  5. Wow, your photos are excellent and while paragliding too!

  6. Those aeriel photos are just amazing – I really love the one of your family waving, incredible that you were able to take that :)

  7. I love the fact that you also have proper blue catering plasters, when your wife is out do you secretly pretend that you are Heston? Bet you have chef’s whites in the wardrobe as well

  8. What a brilliantly eclectic list. And those ariel pics! Wow. Just WOW!

  9. Sorry I’m late. Love your list – esp the comedy sketch. Classic.
