Anyone else hate it when people think it's OK to take their dogs with them when they go shopping?

Had a "online" argument on a local Facebook page because I said so,apparently this makes me an animal hater,even after I pointed out that the dogs probably don't like being dragged around H&M on a Saturday afternoon...

Yes.  I get upset when I see the poor creatures getting bashed about by other customers when the stupid owner carries on oblivious. 
Rather a day as a lion than a lifetime as a sheep.

I can only be nice to one person a day.  Today is not your day.  Tomorrow doesn't look too good either.
I tried being reasonable.  I didn't like it.  Old enough to know better.  Young enough not to give a fuck.

In the lands of the North, where the Black Rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long the Men of the Northlands sit by their great log fires and they tell a tale...
And those tales they tell are the stories of a kind and wise king and his people......

Sad news,it seems we have lost Phil (Geoff) at the moment he's too pissed off with the site to logon.
I think the problem was the Raheem Sterling thread. It started as a minor vortex but worked its way up to a category 5 tornado, hoovering up everything in sight.

It sucked in Jurgen Klopp, Rafa, Ancelotti, every young striker in Europe and every formation or system known to mankind. At the top it was spitting out Brendan, FSG, the transfer committee, Balotelli, Lambert – well, too many to mention really. I think I even caught a glimpse of Andriy Voronin…

Up on the bridge, we had Scotty desperately trying to hold the HTML code together, shouting, “She cannae take the strain, Jim! She’s gonna blow.”

I think Geoff waded in to try and put out a few fires, but he got hit by flying debris. I just observed from the outside, wearing my protective suit and safety goggles. Geoff should be OK with a bit of counselling but we should never let him venture there unaccompanied again.

It was terrifying. The walls of the Main Forum have started to buckle and there’s every chance it could overflow into the General Sports Forum. In that case, I think we should stock up on provisions and make our way in an orderly fashion to the RAWK Fallout Shelter. I’m convinced they evacuated us to The Boozer for our own safety…

Ah, that brings back memories of the days of having a packed lunch for school, meat paste and sliced tomato sarnies on Wonderloaf with a bag of Tudor crisps and a Blue Riband for afters, all wrapped up in an old Wonderloaf greaseproof wrapper and absolutely guaranteed to be a complete soggy mess by lunch time. No wonder I lacked stamina as a kid.

I can only assume that the mods leave it open because it is indeed a black hole that sucks in all the evil of the universe {and RAWK}, and hopefully doesn't infect the rest of the forum.

Is it hell as like.  The fall out shelter lot can sod off and stop where they are.  War or not, our borders are closed.   :no

I think its hilarious.  Many a laugh I've had when they bicker and fight.  I hope the mods don't lock the thread - keep all the loonies together - you wouldn't want them to scatter all over the place would you?  Plus I have to confess to a frisson of pleasure when the Dear Leader gets a kicking.

We did sugar butties, banana, apple butties.  Never put sugar on the 'nana's, though just thick butter.

It's still me favorite samwitch.

My lot loved 'em as kids, but can't stomach 'em now for some reason.

Oh yes.

It's easy to forget how sometimes really simple things like that tasted pretty wonderful.

What about sardines and a runny hardboiled or poached egg all mashed together with an optional tiny dod of curry powder and then served on toast...it sounds like it just shouldn't work but it does, honestly, a cheap and quick sort of kedgeree.

I went into that Sterling thread just for a nose, lobbed in a quick, "I couldn't give a fuck," and left them to it. And in all truth, I really don't give a toss what happens to him. He'll probably just fall off the hippy crack ballons or the mountains of kids he's made or his wallet. LFC will still be there, and even that's not the thing I fell in love with, anymore.

Yeah.  I saw that.  Great stuff.   ;D

I always used to do hot dip butties off a beef roast, or cold dripping butties with salt.  Bliss. 

PS.  Me arteries are fine though.  Doubtless the booze rinsed them through.

I don't know if anyone else has had the same problem, but why doesn't the fatty/skin edge of a slice bacon these days go crispy when you fry or grill it like it used to years back?

I'm guessing it could possibly be something to do with additives.

Most bacon nowadays is rindless, or is that not what you meant.

That's possibly a reason, though my mum used to cut the rind off with a pair of scissors before sticking the rasher in the pan so I'm not too sure.

Maybe it's something to do with the way the meat might be conditioned these days, I certainly remember back in the late 50's early 60's when accompanying my mum on the messages that the old butchers down Town Row would have the meat out on display in all weathers with no refrigeration or certainly not like these days. I expect it was only stuck in the cold store overnight.

Loved them, and Salt Fish on a Sunday morning. We only got it now again, probably shite, but I remember it as lovely.

Funny when we moved to Kirkby. Gangs of inner city kids, all thought we were in the middle of the countryside, used to fill a lemo bottle with water, get a butty, brown sauce or sugar usually, and set off into the wild unknowns like Sherpers. Happy days.

Maybe it's something to do with the way the meat might be conditioned these days, I certainly remember back in the late 50's early 60's when accompanying my mum on the messages that the old butchers down Town Row would have the meat out on display in all weathers with no refrigeration or certainly not like these days. I expect it was only stuck in the cold store overnight.




That was part of the curing process. 

Bacon sides are either cured in brine or dry pack, so it could also be the content of that or how long they are cured for and if they are hung for further curing in a cold shed, just like the old butchers did.

Supermarkets shortcut the process, mainly cut the rind off anyway and lob it on the shelves.  Farmers tend to stick to the old ways and cure their bacon sides for weeks or months in the cold.  Delicious bacon and crispy rind. 

But your Mum's idea of frying the rind separately will do the trick. 

PS.  Northfield Farm do superb bacon and also pork cuts.

It's usually sold sodden with water to increase the weight that you are buying - this also fucks up the cooking process because you are now basically boiling the stuff.

Loved them, and Salt Fish on a Sunday morning. We only got it now again, probably shite, but I remember it as lovely.

Funny when we moved to Kirkby. Gangs of inner city kids, all thought we were in the middle of the countryside, used to fill a lemo bottle with water, get a butty, brown sauce or sugar usually, and set off into the wild unknowns like Sherpers. Happy days.
Me arl fellah had that every Sunday we had it sometimes (I'm sure that had bacon fat lobbed all over it too - no wonder I can't bend me arms and legs). Very Spanish that, Bacalao (not with the bacon fat though).

The stick of fried rind, when cold, we would eat like biltong.

Nothing ever went to waste in our house, my mum and dad couldn't afford it, the make do and mend generation.

Even the old butter paper was saved for cleaning your hands of tar or oil or after gardening, it worked a treat and was cheaper than something like a tin of swarfega.

It's weird looking back now and thinking of the things we did.

I suppose it would be easy for us lot near 60 or over to probably adapt to all that again if needed but I'm not sure of the younger generations, they having had an easy life in comparison, and I can't help but think a lot of them perhaps would struggle.

Yeah.  Me  Nan loved it - plus the bacon fat over, and we all got some.  Mind you, it was a helluva palaver preparing it.  Soaking this board like thing iin a bucket of cold water with frequent changes, until it gradually gave in and sank to the bottom.  And naturally the house stank during the cooking.  But it was lovely.

Problem is, skills used to be passed from Nan to Mum to daughter.   I don't think that happens now because life is much easier.  Also, loads of small shops have been killed off by the supermarkets, and you can't get your hands on the raw materials for meals.

For the first 18 months we were married we were on the rags of our arses.  We were so poor we used to get handouts from Church Mice.  We'd never have survived if I hadn't watched my Nan make tasty meals out of cheap cuts, and there were plenty of shops selling the necesary foodstuffs. 

But I continued to make them as our situation improved, as they were tasty.  Neck ends or scrag if you prefer.  The aroma of the long slow cooking perfumed the house.  And the lamb fell from the bone and the marrow was sucked out.

Talking of marrow.  I used to get marrow bones and roast them, and then spoon the marrow out and we'd eat it on toast.  Poor man's scoff.  Bugger me if we didn't see it on the menu of a posh restaurant

Continued ........ near Smithfield Market!!

And pork belly.  Boned, stuffed and rolled.

Ham shanks, boiled, bone in, with lots of veg.   The cooking liquid was thicked with extra floury spuds and, with some of the ham, made a terrific soup.  The rest of the ham made the meal with more veg and spuds.  The bone went to the dog.

And you are right about nothing going to waste.  My Uncle Alf had an allotment, grew veg, tomatoes and flowers, and kept hens.  We did well for fresh food of that kind, and the hens were repaid with a mash.  Their eggshells were roasted and put through the mincer along with any stale bread or crusts that had also been roasted.  Potato peelings were boiled up amd mashed and  the egg/bread mixed in.  It was bulked up with some feed, and the hens loved it.  Any large cabbage or cauli stalks were given to them to peck. 

Fertiliser was a sack of horse manure in a rain butt.  Great stuff.  Whenever a horse and cart came round, we'd watch the horse like hawks, bucket and coal shovel to hand, ready to rush out as soon as there was any action.  We weren't shy.  Not after tasting the results it produced.  There were tomatoes in a greenhouse who were especially well fed with the magic mix.  Walking in and the perfume of the tomatoes was intoxicating.  Sniff tomatoes in the supermarket nowadays and they smell of bugger all.

Aye well.
