Yum! Evaporated milk, now that's a blast from the past.

Sounds like your Nan was preparing to make a brew that could be carried around in a lemonade bottle until required, Suzy. Yes, folk really did put tea into a lemonade bottle away back then.

The only place I have ever witnessed road rage is in Asda's car park, apart from a cyclist who considered driving about 20 feet behind him at 10mph down a road where overtaking was impossible was dangerously close!

My beloved Nan's usual was brewed with at least six teabags to the pot and was served with a splash of Evaporated Milk and a bare minimum of four sugars. Apparently it was a typically Irish brew? It was only considered to be made 'right' if it was so thick that you could almost stand a spoon up in it?!! ;o>

Just a normal cup of tea, thanks, Sparky ;-)

Ohhh, I so loved that bit in the film 'Fried Green Tomatoes' when the desperately unhappy and much put-upon housewife played by Kathy Bates finally snaps and sees red in a supermarket car park. She is just about to park when a couple of young girls, full of attitude, cut in front and take her space from her whilst laughing away and scoffing at her, "Face it lady...we're younger and faster!"

At the very end of her tether with the world, she puts her foot down, repeatedly rams their car with hers and when they run out of the grocery store screaming, "What are you doing? Are you crazy?", she then leaves saying, "Face it girls...I'm older and I have more insurance!" ;o>

Smitty, have you ingested something of a stimulative nature in the recent past (I.e. Just a little bit earlier today) ??

Yeh, I know where that kid was coming from. Fell asleep at a match myself, and I was not even tired.

Hengest Pod had the right idea.

Yes, the number of folks driving a "car" that is the size, or bigger, of the original Ford Transit white van is amazing. Some of them are wide enough to have a picnic table between the passenger and the drivers seat.

Go on, Brass, tell us about the size of the parking bays and the cr@pness of other folks parking. Go on, go on, go on.....(thank you, Mrs Doyle).

I fitted some square wheels to my small motor van to prevent it rolling away on hills, the results are promising but there is a slight vibration at 50mph which I don't believe was previously present.

Fishermen were using them on their sides as nets to catch salmon in the low estuaries, then returning them to the upright and wheeling off their catch. This is a procedure that requires great knowledge of tides, fish and seasons. The trolleys you see left in rivers are usually the sign of a failed attempt at getting a free tea.

Well?...I'm guessing that she has a lightsaber! - LOL! ;o>

Yes indeed. To cut costs the trolley makers dumped one the final parts of the original construction sequence, the one were the wheels were made round. This cost cutting exercise saves them 12 pence on every trolley. If they look fairly round and go around(although this is not an essential quality) they will do, is the new mantra.

From Burns night, to heart-Burns day......splendid.

It is what is concealed in your walking stick that people fear, Lez ;-)

Cold beans with some tinned corn stirred through them..............yum. Except I am now allergic to tomatoes, after all of those happy tomato guzzling years :-(

Would it not be hilarious if someone got that Unexpected Item message and there was a live lobster down there......or a porcupine.
