    As to times .. up Manchester way tea-time is 5pm ish .. dinner at 12 noon..

    That's why I mentioned the time as it varies around the country ( and classes ?)

    Of course I had a friend from Liverpool who tried explaining your meal times to me. Your dinner is our lunch. Tea is our dinner 6-8pm.

    While I do like the occasional root beer float (root beer with ice cream), it's much too sweet for me. I did try Bundaberg root beer from Australia once which is definitely an acquired taste as it tastes somewhat different.

    We had the traditional corner shop Fisho when I was growing up. Most were owned by new Italian or Greek settlers. Dont see them around all that often these days. Most have moved into the shopping arcades. We have crumbed cod and extras every second Friday from the local Fisho.

    We have a few Fish Shops here, mostly greek owners. Some do Battered Savs, none do pickled eggs or wallies, some do gravy and you'll find the odd one that does curry sauce.

    Used to love going into our local chippy in the UK as a kid and getting a "bag of scraps", all the batter bits out of the bottom of the fryer in a paper bag.

    Wallies?...Yeah we used to ask for scratchings, bits of fried batter. It was commonplace in the 60s to take your own plate to the chippy, unthinkable now.

    As a child growing up, in summer when buttercups were in flower and it was sunny, we would pick one and hold it under someone's chin. If the buttercup cast a glow on the person's skin then we would say that they like butter.

    Also, we were told not to pick dandelions as if you did it would make you wee the bed--in fact, we called dandelions 'wee the beds'.

    That's interesting... we had both those over Manchester way ..but the buttercup glow meant you fancied the other person ..

    That said I was rather popular with the girls back then
