  1. Soon be parkin season again too! Very uncool, very bad for you. Full of sugar and treacle. And absolutely delicious. Can't wait!
  2. I knew that the electrification of Sheffield to London had been cancelled. After Cameroon told bare faced lies about it on Look North just before the 2015 General Election. How long before Manchester/Leeds electrification goes the same way? He claimed work had started on that too!
  3. I have an Indian recipe book somewhere with recipes for (beside curries etc.) Indian deserts and most of them call for milk to be reduced by heat, in other words condensed.
  4. I think many of the things that are now happening as a result of the cuts are what the economists call "lagging indicators" They cut and cut and nothing appears to happen, and then suddenly the effects start to be felt. It's like the Brexit decision, nothing happened at first, but now the chickens are coming home to roost.
  5. Was it Nestle's condensed milk (cream?) you used to be able to get in tubes? (like toothpaste)
  6. Ali oli is a Catalan dressing made from garlic, and olive oil. Aioli is garlic mayo from Provence. They are both nice, but are different
  7. What a surprise. So they've cut spending on the NHS and the long running increase in life expectancy has slowed. And they've cut number of police and the crime rate has increased. No scientific proof, just a co-incidence.
  8. I've never liked salad cream, from being a kid. I think it tastes really nasty. I love mayo, I'd kill for really garlicky ali oli.
  9. I always thought it was called Little Germany because of the architectural style of the buildings.
  10. I had white pudding in Ireland, IIRC it's just sausage. I'd have thought someone from Calderdale would be into dock pudding anyway!
  11. Wasn't Iestyn Harris player and assistant coach?
  12. Is black pudding cool or uncool? I remember over 30 years ago a director of the company I worked for visiting and staying in Wakey. He was offered the full English breakfast plus "the local delicacy" he asked what the local delicacy was and when told it was black pudding, turned his nose up at it. Perhaps if they'd called it blutwurst, boudin noir, morcila, or salami di sangue, he'd have been more impressed?
  13. The pork butchers in my home town used to do roasted pigs cheeks, some of them still had the teeth in, My grandma used to love them. There used to be a pork butchers in Cas called Matthews, The sold chitterlings and something called pig's bag.
  14. Could have retired in 2011 at 65 but carried on until I was 70, then retired. Four months later they asked me to come back for a bit, so I did another three months. They may ask again in September.
