Re: British English
Now, what would a Welshman know about making tea?

That's like asking if a bear knows how to live in the woods.

You need to spend some time in Wales, preferably where they speak 'the language of Evan' and learn about the welcome of 'y panad' (the cuppa).

You recently arrived Saeson (Saxons) need to up your game.

Re: British English
My apologies. I knew that the Welsh invented the 'cakes' but I had forgotten the tea-plantations in the valleys.

Not in the valleys. Foothills of Snowden. Honestly.

It was a lot warmer leading up to and including the Medieval Warm Period but even so, a lot of rain is the most important thing.

The ladies in the kitchen said it can go in the cooler and sit with no sunlight. Must be some new technology.

Re: British English

Tottenham Hotspur (the Spurs) - David Ginola - July 1997 to July 2000. Football (Soccer) as art (and he's French! ). Not only that but when Ginola was at Newcastle United he was part of the squad who spanked Man Utd 5 - 0 in the 96/97 season. Look up some of Ginola's goals and passing moves on YouTube - beautiful.

One thing about Man Utd that almost redeemed them was the way they beat Bayern Munich in the 1999 UEFA Champions League (in this context, I should perhaps mention Teddy Sheringham who twice was at Tottenham as well as Man Utd).

I'm somewhat surprised I'm writing this as I'm not a huge soccer fan - the ball is the wrong shape.

That's what they said when that well known Welshman - Dai Jeeling - introduced radical methods to grow tea on the foothills of Snowden in the 10th century in the reign of Hywel Dda (Hywel the Good) at the start of the Medieval Warm Period. It all came to a sad end when the "Little Ice Age" arrived but by then tea drinking was in our genes .

Some of us are looking forward to Global Warming to start so that we don't have to rely on imported tea anymore .

I knew this thread would FINALLY turn spiritual.

I also prefer a spheroid to a round ball.
