Cream Tea, fancy hats, and the old English way

they say god, king, empire. Well, there may be no god, we have a queen now, with no real power, and the empire is dead. But we can still sip tea, nibble scones, and discuss the politics of the mother country, of the various commonwealthers, or international.

Imperial Legacy of Africa

A paradox, a moment of both progress and scientific achievement, and paternalism and oppression. The Great Lion's paw secured a lion's share of Africa in the days of Empire. From Egypt, to the north,…Continue

"Has anyone been to Cornwall" we used to spend our summers in Cornwall, a coastal town called Perranporth to be exact. We would take the express from Paddington station and as soon as the train passed into Devon and then Cornwall we would have beautiful scones with cream and strawberry jam. In those day whole families would be on the move each summer and ours was no different our family party would contain at least twenty of us, Cousins, Sisters, parents and grandparents, we were like a tribe on the move, and even until today I think they were the best Holidays I've ever had.

Sooo that is where that expression comes from! Used it on several occasions when I was bloody hungry because the long interval between meals. I have heard it used by fellows when they think the missus taking to long to get them their tea, or they have just come home and say "When is tea being dished up? My stomach feels as though my throats been cut!"

Is also true that there is a difference to about going to see someone. In one location you have to notify them you are coming and the other location is very much like Auss rock up to their doorway. I cannot remember what my aunty told Mum it was either north or south that you could do it!

Been to the UK, once when a student in the late sixties. Spent a summer west of London working on Schweppes delivery trucks. Enjoyed it immensely. I had a small moped and I explored a bit of the capital. Got terminally hooked on British humor =)
