Hi GN - sadly it's all going as I expected. As a kid, my memory of Xmas was going north to the relatives and we often had a white Christmas, so you might well be right. I can still just remember the (to me) huge steam engines at King's Cross.

My daughter was married to a man from The United Kingdom. Lived in a little town called Rainford, near Manchester, or Liverpool. I loved his accent and manners. Unfortunately the marriage didn't last, but I will never forget him. He called potato chips - crisps and said that it was scarce to find peanut butter at the grocery stores, so I would send a few jars from time to time. While they were living here for a few months, I served my then son-in-law some tea and biscuits on an English tray. He got a big kick out of that and said that he wasn't much for tea, but he appreciated it. I felt rather foolish but he was so sweet about it that I wasn't offended in the least. I never met his family but spoke with them a few times on the phone. So warm, polite and very family orientated. My son-in-law-s favorite dish was Kidney Pie and I never learned how to make it, although I was planning to before they broke up. I have a few pics of my daughter and son-in-law that were taken in a local ale house in Manchester. It has either closed or was renamed. Not sure, but I think it was called "The England and Child", or is it the Eagle and Child? Can't remember!
Probably the Eagle - don't know of any pubs over here that use England in their name. Steak and kidney pie is wonderful - guess you have to like kidneys for it to grab you. Ironically, the traditional dish of the poor centuries ago was beef and oyster pie - because oysters were so cheap. Tea is a definite for me - large mug every morning.

Thanks for this post, B.. and Good Day to you,
I know it's courteous to 'do in Rome' etc..
although, I'm not too quick to join in
if I don't like the dish, but I always
make sure
do it in a polite way.
The problem with HORSE DNA found in our recent
food, wasn't so much that it was 'horse'meat
having been advertised as pure beef,
when it wasn't 100% beef.
Greetings to you & Bright Eyes.
50% pure rabbit burgers. 1 rabbit and 1 horse :)

So funny..divided by a common language! LOL I know OF those Dickies,
we called them Dickie Bows, I don't recall them being in fashion for
ladies, but men wore them with a dinner jacket if I'm not mistaken.
I have been known to wear a regular tie, loosely knotted with an
open neck white shirt blouse in my younger days, considered myself looking ever so kinky. lol
Lady El you made my day!!!! LOL I had to call boomer and ask what kinky would me to you. It has 2 different meanings here.:)
Have a wonderful day.
Sending lots of love your way.

Good day to all!
The Mrs called to ask about language across the pond. Yes, I almost blew coffee on the computer screen! LOL! Trainers aka sneakers here; boot, bonnet, and the kicker was, knock me up in the morning!!
Different phraseology makes this planet fun. We have idioms here in the USA that are divided by the compass. An example, the word soda. Some refer to it as pop as in soda pop; in the south, everything is a "Coke", you ask for soda in Boston, that is exactly what you get, club soda.

Enjoy the day folks. Hunkering down for the cold weather.

That will keep the pecker up. In England you can say that in polite society. It is like vim and vigor :) I asked my English friend if you see many men wearing suspenders. She about died laughing. I should have said braces. Suspenders are garter belts :)

Add to that [sneakers - trainers= runners.

we never say 'I'll fix you a sandwich'
we say I'll make you a sandwich..

also

I never understood USA phrase..
when someone is niffed with another and they say..
anyway,
'I COULD CARE LESS'

surely it should mean
'I *couldn't* care less'

but never fear

we over here have a similar one..
if someone says.

'O. I hope he'll be ok'

we say'

'There's a fear of him'

when I think it should more
accurately be

'There's NO fear of him'

and to give you a laugh,
if we speak about someone who is say.. well off
if a person said 'he has only one car now'

Someone else might add

'Hmm, there's a fear of his @rse' lol

short for >

'Don't pity him,

he already doesn't want for anything'...

Grace, Lady El, Denny and Other......
You have kept me in stitches all day with the differences in words. I do have to say I am a little hesitant to use certain words for fear that those to will be miss understood. LOL I would hate to think what I just stated, "kept me in stitches" would mean something like I need stitches put in my clothes because I run around naked or something!!!! LOL
Wow, what fun conversations! Thanks All!
