Here is a Wooden Water Pipe from London I found in Chirk Castle a few weeks ago.

View from the Inside of the Pipe..

I Went there as a kid, to see the TutankhAmoun exhibition..
We had our room robbed while at breakfast, depsite the fact our Hotel was right outside New Scotland yard..
Audacious theft, fair do's.. :cool:

Next Time I went, it took 8 hours to leave the City, due to the traffic..

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the best film we have watched for some time. Brilliantly acted. Highly recommended. :up

And the Food don't forget the food, the baked salmon with the smoked salmon pasta twirls was to die for, my chicken tandoori avec-le dips obviously a winner, but then Sherherazade's own, with the Orange Tart and Chocolate Ice cream, truly 'Orgasmic, the film a winner, the company excellent, and now at 2.am, I go to watch Battle for the Pacific 2O11, looks good and eating tandoori chicken hot dip and red wine, la whaala, love life ,live long and prosper,

And I forgot all about it! Was looking forward to it too.
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

I've not seen the film yet. I so enjoyed the book when it first came out - These Foolish Things by Deborah Moggach (before it's title change) - I would hate for the film characters to destroy my images of the various characters and characteristics. The film does have a fantastic cast though and I'm sure I'll get round to seeing the film one day!

I don't know if it's also be been made into a film but if you enjoyed Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, you may enjoy reading Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson. It is full of the same gentle humour.

Best film I have seen in ages. Had a smile on my face all the way through. With a cast like that, you really couldn't go wrong. Thanks for the food too - yummy. A lovely night.

I particularly loved the fact that you could easily have replaced Egypt for India

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the best film I have seen in a very long time..

It should be compulsory adult viewing... :cool:

Isn't she always! I am currently watching my recording of "Murder by Death", an oldie but goodie send-up of all those famous-detective murder mysteries. It has a cast of stars, including the delightful Miss Smith.

My most recent cinema outing was to see the fabulous "The Intouchables". DON'T MISS IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
