    Baking - Mrs Grove is off to an afternoon piss-up with 5 other degenerate mums and I've been commandeered to provide cakes to soak up the gin
    Walking - as per my award winning thread on the Great Outdoors, maintaining social distancing of course
    Guitar - I will try my hand at a basic set up on one of the newer guitars, I've got all the gear just need to work out what to do with it, might even try and practice a bit
    News - I shall be watching the news to see how many more Not White people get their undies in a bunch because of the recent race report that says it is just as much down to them to sort themselves out as it is to think that Black History Month will change anything

    I read yesterday that lamb was the main meal at Easter, I really don't think I have heard of it being the main dish for Easter before.

    Regarding Maundy Thursday, I might cut my toenails.

    Probably not in a religious sense but spring and all that would make it popular I'd imagine but I could be wrong,rare I know but there you go(not the lamb).

    Speaking of Easter don't the Spanish go mad for festivals like Semana Santa and such,probably not on this year due to the lurgy.

    Seems it started with Trev and the Jews eating lamb to mark Passover and then it transferred to Christianity.

    So in other words it is a religious thing, but it obviously helped that it was spring at the time and there were lambs about. If it was in July they would have had a tuna salad or something maybe. Or maybe a Caesar Salad because July was named after Julius Caesar hahahahaha. In saying that, it doesn't make sense because the first Passover was about 400 years before Julius Caesar. Let's just stick with the tuna salad if Passover was July, which it wasn't(I suppose July didn't even exist either)

    Plus it's the end of Lent and fasting so people would treat themselves(that's fasting btw) considering it's the most important time in the Christian calendar.
