    Hello Grace brains? for breakfast... well for to eat at all I'll try just about anything but I don't think I could bring myself to try that one.
    We need carpet badly too.
    Good day to everyone yet to come.
    Roy I hope your Aunt is doing well, it sounds like she should and she has a great nephew/nurse taking care of her.

    Morning all!
    We've got our Gracie back! But....brains for breakfast. Errrm..nope, not me...but DH(?) who is British has had them...on toast.

    Nothing much happening here. Later on today will go to my girlfriend's party....she and DH just got married and are having a little celebration at her SIL's home--lobster/clam bake. Hope the weather holds out for them. Looks pretty iffy right now but it's still very early. She's also preggy, due in February so I will be an 'auntie'. :wink2:

    Coffee!!!!

    In the deep country part of North Carolina (I don't know about the rest of the south) they eat eggs and brains for breakfast. Didn't know the Aussies and the Brits ate them. I thought that was just one of those po folks southern foods (because we don't waste any part of the animal eating pigs feet and brains, head to toe, with the scraps going to the dogs).

    I'm going to see the touring production of Rent today. I saw it again, but a friend backed out and his friend asked me to go, so I said yes. I love it.

    Tweety--sounds wonderful. That's one thing I miss about living in NY--the very easy access to Manhattan and all the wonderful plays. Have a great time.

    Thanks Suzy. We used to have season tickets to the Broadway series here and used to love going. When I switched to every other weekend it got to be a pain arraging days off and we dropped our members. It's been a while since I've seen a show.

    We don't eat brains - can't even get them anyway - not since CJD. The Europeans - French & Spanish eat them though (& other unmentionables at the other end of the male bull!!)

    Oh & I don't enjoy steak & kidney pie either!! Hubbie does but I won't cook it! However, roast beef & yorkshire pudding...............now you're talking!!!

    Hope you all have a good day xxxxxx

    hey, all! sorry i haven't been around much; work, work, and more work. i do tend to read the daily thread though, and when i saw the reference to brains, etc......had to throw in my 2 cents worth. my great grampa loved haggis, and that is a bit 'off putting' to say the least.

    what has been up with the thread, lately? very few pages long!? and don't blame grace for it either!

    congratulations, roy! i am glad to see you passed.

    until later.....

    RJN.....yes...dh said it was quite some time ago the last time he had them.
    Roast beef w/yorkshire pudding. Yummy!!!!! Love that!

    Sun is coming out...supposed to be 81 today. I think I'll call my friend and see what she's up to! Probably busy at work getting things ready for her party.
