Have you noticed that the supermarkets have stacks of mince pies on sale, with use-by dates of long before Christmas? What's the point of eating mince pies in October?

I know mince pies are traditionally eaten at Christmas, but personally I could eat them all year round. I really love them. Same applies with hot cross buns. I wish you could get them all year round too.

I'm not a big pastry lover but I don't mind a couple of mince pies nearer Christmas, with a knob of brandy butter of course!!
Nan - hot-cross buns are sold all the year round now, my grandson loves them, especially for breakfast. Most supermarkets have them.  Denise

Seem to remember seeing some in the freezer not long ago from last year,we just pop them in the microwave for 30 secs. then into the toaster oven to crisp them up.Delicious!!

I can't watch him, it makes me feel sick. I never did manage to walk on the glass walkway at the top of the tower in Toronto.

I remember going up to the Wispering Gallery in St Pauls Cathedral I went round sat on the seat sliding along. I also went to a ruin Castle in Wales with some friends When they turned round to see were I was I was on all fours but don't ask me how I got there because it was just instincts my palms go hot and sweaty and my stomach goes in a knot. But I can go on the Big Wheel and Dipper as long as I can feel the floor none of these that go upside down or have just your legs dangling I give them a pass :o :o

Hi Bill it is suprising how many young people wear Poppies and are quite aware what they are for. The School I help at sell them each yr around school and the pupils were them. Fudge

"Also, has anyone noticed a clock that hasn't gone back?"

Tis American Software - November 1st is their day.  My Lidl supplied radio controlled clock hasn't gone back either.
