English speakers must have the hardest time with American biscuits... "Would you like a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit?"

From what I could see when I was in America was that yoru biscuits are in fact scones.

I think you're right. Do you have savory scones served as a (originally Southern, but getting more popular nationwide) breakfast item?

(gasps) That's GORGEOUS, Schoonie!!!

re: biscuits (I mean biscuits in my country, not over the pond where biscuits are more like cookies or a dessert item). I suppose they're SORT of like scones because they're a baking soda/baking powder concoction. I'm Canadian (with English, Irish and Scottish ancestors) but despite that, over here we'd never call a soda biscuit a scone (which we see as more of a "sweet" thing, often with currents in them and definitely slathered in butter and preserves). The unsweetened things without fruit, we tend to call "English Muffins" (go figger lol). Soda biscuits on the other hand often have herbs in them and make good "sandwich" material for breakfast (esp with cheese) and go well with dinner too (particularly if gravy or soup is involved).

In any case, I'm quite happy to eat ALL the versions, no matter what they're called LOL

Copago: love the picture of the puppy "just over the threshold". Our setter was like that - wasn't allowed in the kitchen or livingroom, but always tested her boundaries by draping SOME part of her body over them lol. Pretty smart dog you have though (took 4 years before the Irish "grew up" - or pretended to anyway).

Before about 1933 British road signs were not coordinated and often included local versions, and before the panels with the details of the hazard underneath became official most warning signs had nothing but a general red triangle and nothing more, although some specified a name like 'school' underneath. Till yesterday the only ones I'd seen were in Scotland, and then two in England turned up including this one just on the edge of London Heathrow airport. It's also got the Gilbert Scott pole, on many but not all nationally.

Thanks, Jakeroo! It was a beautiful sunset to end an amazing day. Caught the green flash a moment later too. grin

Tapas from the other night. Lobster mac and cheese on the left, hibachi salmon (edit: Schoonie, you jackass, does that LOOK like shrimp [referring to pre-edit]?! sigh...) on the right. Not too shabby let me tell you. grin

Sooty, Sweep and Soo are at least 20 years old. They were made originally for my nieces, but going to be given to the two "Princes" for more puppet fun laugh

When you let a four-year-old boy decorate a seven foot Christmas tree, you're likely to see a plethora of candy canes - but only up to half-way!
