I see your "Chicken Madras" imbecile and match it with the latest iPhone ad and the woman who goes "I'm checking my flight, I'm not checking my flight...I missed my flight" or similar.

Enough to reaffirm why, aside from my trusty and now somewhat ancient iPod, I don't touch Apple products.

In my Japanese cotton cords.
I've just seen the latest Halifax advert featuring childhood favourite, Top Cat.

All i took from it was how feckin' dire someone (Benny was a bit thick so probably him but i'm not sure he could have reached that far up the fence) is at Noughts and Crosses. Noughts must have gone first as there's an equal number of goes but broke the golden rule of not going for the centre square. As if that wasn't bad enought they've then sat back and watched whilst crosses went straight down the middle.

Proof:

Interesting snippet from Wikipedia here.

"Beer, bread, and cheese have been combined in the English diet since antiquity. However, the specific term "ploughman's lunch" is believed to date no further back than the 1950s, when the Cheese Bureau began promoting the meal in pubs as a way to increase the sales of cheese."

For me a Ploughman's should consist of three different types of cheese (Ideally a mature cheddar, a stilton and a soft cheese), an apple, some decent thick slices of ham, a few grapes, some Branston-type pickle and a hunk of bread the size of a house brick. A boiled egg, sliced in half is optional.

Don't forget the butter. Pickled onions as well.
