Weather watchers

I'm sure all fans of The Schaf are avid weather-watchers-- however you can now officially become one.

I'll let the good man himself explain...

Spectating the Spectator

In the week's Spectator magazine (dated 5 Sep 2015), The Schaf gets a worthy name-check.

On Page 11,  Tristam Hunt MP {i} is writing for this edition's Diary section. He comments on the summer's weather:

"Our companion is all this has been the Met Office, whose forecasts are dashingly presented by the hunky Tomasz Schafernaker".

Nice to know our Tomasz has fans in corridors of power. I can now just imagine his name coming up in PMQ, should the provision of the BBCs weather forecasting be discussed. What would Andrew Neil make of that, one wonders.

Though of course Tomasz is assisted by one or two other people in the BBC forecasting stakes: Speaking of which-- best of luck to Carol Kirkwood (should that "Shmirkwood"?) in Strictly Come Dancing {ii}. For she is one this year's constestants; as you've probably heard, unless you've been stuck down a Chilean mine-shaft for the past month.

{i} Honourable member for Stoke-on-Trent Central, in case you were wondering.
{ii} Or if you're Tess Daly-- "Strikleh".

Greetings anew

Apologies for not posting for a while. To (mis?)quote Groucho Marx, time flies like an arrow and fruit flies like a banana.

Anyway, our Tomasz was on Countryfile Sunday just gone. View now, while stocks last.

Fast-forward to 50:36

The Schaf is now on Vine. Not Jeremy or Tim, for they are not transport; but the site where you can share short videos, and such like.

Tossing the caber

The Schaf adorably suffers the sort of mental block we all get occasionally: I suppose the saturation on the news coverage about the Indyref is enough to addle even the finest of minds...

I blame Ken Bruce personally.

A taste of Tomasz

As regular readers on this blog, wherever they may lurk, will know that Tomasz recently did a series about Polish cuisine. I'm happy to announce that the full series is available, as a playlist on Youtube. An even tastier treat than perogi:
