I hadn't got any lard, unless I nicked out of the chip pan. But that would have meant no chips the following night. I could have used Brylcreem I had plenty of that in those days.

I remember bread and dripping Signman, I was only showing off with the toast. We weren't always rolling it it you know.
Before I started putting Caviar and FG on my toast I used to eat lumpfish roe with my champagne, and it wasn't vintage, either.

I remember once I had a great pair of cowboy boots, I fell asleep in front of the fire. I awoke about 30 minutes later thinking I was being tortured. The sole of my boot was smoldering. The fire had burned a hole nearly all the way through. I had to wear cardboard inside it for weeks because I wasn't about to throw them away.

What's this FG you put on your toast then Volty. An illegal substance maybe.

Foie Gras. It may become illegal yet.

So it should be, anything made from any liver should be, but in this case more so, because of the disgusting way the ducks are reared and force fed to fatten them up.

Phil, I told you I didn't want to hear about ducks a while back in your Q&A game.
They may well be the planets most ill treated animal, in full public view yet no one complains.
The chinese, who eat millions of them, package them up, alive, into long bags so the ducks are side by side with just their heads sticking out of the bag.
When they decide it's time for dinner, chinese chef of the day takes a duck and pokes it in the chest with a cocktail stick which he waggles around for a few minutes
until he finally manages to shred the ducks heart and it is fortunate to die and end the agony.
Think about that next time you see duck, whether crispy, Peking or screaming, on a chinese restaurant menu.

I remember it, I can remember the women in my early life spraying it everywhere. Strong smells of any sort can make me physically sick. Whenever the lacquer bottle came out, I headed for the door. Of course when I was young bouffant hair styles were all the rage for women so it was a bottle of lacquer every time they went out.

even today my wife can only wear unscented hair spray, and only one brand of perfume Anything else then we have to go out separately.

June let's put it this way, I wa a teenager in the 60s with five older sisters. Believe me I could taste that muck all week. The only thing I hated more was when my Mom or Gran had a home perm. I am surprised that the stench from that never disolved the windows. SB

Now boys it obviously worked, but I agree home perms used to smell awful.

It didn't work for me, my wife had beautiful waist length platinum blond straight hair when I met her. She ruined it when she was 40 by having it all cut off saying she was too old for all that now.

She now spends a fortune at the hairdresser every week having a shampoo & set and a perm about every 8 weeks.
