We got a flyer through our door for a new pop-up Indian restaurant/takeaway in Lewes, in aid of church funds. Very enterprising I say. But....Can just anyone serve the public food from their kitchen ? I doubt it. Going to try it though sounds tasty. Hope we are still alive next week !!

A lot of people will argue about whether or not the name Wendy was created by J.M. Barrie for the character "Wendy Darling" in his books about Peter Pan.
Most of my life I thought the name Wendy is derivative of Gwendolyn or some variation of a way-way-back historical name you'd never want to assign to any young girl.
"Wendy" might have been in use before Peter Pan and might even have been a boy's name.
And last, my own research has found references to two different emperors in China who have the name "Wendi" (sometimes also referred to as Wen-Ti).
The name Wendy was more popular in Britain (its country of origin) than in the United States.
In the 1940s, the variation "Wendie" was regularly used and "Wendi" appeared in the 1960s, which is when the name reached its peak in Britain. In the United States Wendy reached its peak in the 1970s. By the 1980s, the popularity of Wendy was in sharp decline.

Report Button, did you use the Contact form to report VOB to Webbo? The comments have been here for several days now. I'm not a lawyer so not sure where the line is between offensive and illegal when it comes to racist comments on a public forum, and at what stage the owner of a forum becomes responsible for the content on it if no steps are taken to remove it. But I am worried that at some point Webbo's relatively hands off, anything goes approach to what people post on this forum is going to land him in serious legal trouble.

Hello Everyone - It is my Takeaway! I first became interested in eating and cooking Indian food when I travelled the "Hippie Trail" to India in the 1970's. Our congregation at St. Michael's was given 10 at the end of May and told to bring it back at the beginning of October having made more money. I am not generally advertising the "Takeaway" but just targeting friends and neighbours so if you live near me you may have one of my flyers. I visited the Environmental Health Dept and was told that because this is temporary and limited to just a few customers, I don't need an inspection. I follow very strict rules on health and hygiene and I have never made anyone ill with my cooking! I have had three "Takeaway" Fridays now and have raised nearly 500 - some customers have even come back again. This Friday (19th) I am having an "Eat In" evening for 12 per person. We shall sit in the garden if the weather is warm. I must admit it is very hard work, I usually work at the curries for 2-3 days beforehand, getting up sometimes as early as 5 am making sauces and ensuring everything going to be ready on time. I am interested to hear what people think.

Independent Thinker. Yes I agree. I appreciate that Webbo allows all sorts of legal, if unpalatable and unchallenged views to remain on this publicly accessible soap box. They can be read by anyone, including impressionable children. But Webbo does have posting rules, and posts should also be legal. The police have already intervened at least once, and I do not think, public money should be spent doing that, and I shouldn't have to do it either.
On a more cheery note. I am pleased to hear more about Wendy's project and I wish her lots of success. My only suggestion is that everyone who enjoys her food, also has an additional great night out at one of the other existing Lewes restaurants, to ensure that they don't lose out.

Absolutely! I agree wholeheartedly, we have some fine Indian restaurants in Lewes and as soon as the five remaining takeaway Fridays are over, I shall be back there myself! I hope that trying my curries will encourage others to do the same.
