Carter made a Mexican mole for her dinner party last night. It had 40 ingredients. As she was serving it to one of her Swedish girlfriends, I said, "Do you know, it took Jacko (Carter's husband) from 10 until 4 last Saturday to shoot those moles." The Swede handed her plate back to Carter and said, "Sorry, I don't eat red meat."

I had no idea what a Mexican mole was until I looked it up. So I quite understand the Swedish girl's reaction especially since Belle is quite a mole catcher. I have frequently tried to revive moles. In vain, in all cases.

Oh sorry - chicken! Yes I'm looking forward to seeing you and the delightful Miss Lear. ED is inviting us for lunch in Brussels next year, by the way.
