    Interesting, I wonder what went wrong, I think this is the first time this year, or a least for a long time, that butter has actually been discounted.

    Keeping an eye out in case that instantly lethal coconut oil comes down in price since all the media paranoia. No luck so far.

    £1-25 is a good price ... it seems the supermarkets are competing, or perhaps taking it in turns!

    Must admit I still have a few packs of anchor in the fridge that I got (priced £1-30) from Sainsbury's recently.

    Hmmm, President butter . . . drive to nearby town with lousy parking . . . decisions decisions

    Oh I could park the far end of town and walk to the Waitrose and back, kill two birds with one stone. They took it off the shelf in the Co-Op a long time back so they could fit in more margarine, I wonder if they'll reconsider.

    I'm butting in here or should it be buttering in here LOL!

    Sainsbury's yesterday and the price of Anchor was £1-75.
    I also noticed that President and Kerrygold were more than this!
    Fortunately the fridge is still quite well stocked up from a previous good offer. It pays to keep your eyes on the housekeeping budget  Smile

    One of my memories as a kid was eating real beef dripping sandwiches. Another thing I remember was using the small end of a teaspoon extracting the marrow out of the big cow backbones my Mother had stewed up. That was before the mad cow disease meant cow back bone material had to be scrapped.

    Haha yes after my mother died I found the marrow spoons. Like a teaspoon with a tiny head and a loooong handle. We used them to dig out the marrow from leg of lamb.

    I don't think we had dripping sandwiches but she kept the dripping and also bacon fat in little bowls in the fridge (can't remember where she kept them before we had a fridge though, probably in the meat safe which was in the coal cellar). You had to be quick with the door or bluebottles might get in.

    I remember the beef dripping butties to, in those days vegetable oils were unheard of dripping and lard were the only cooking fats used. The chippie which was our Friday treat always used beef dripping very tasty the fish and chips were too   Cool

    I have read, this young current generation, will be the first who will not outlive our generation. This is a very sad state of affairs. Call me an old fool, and you may well be right, but I believe this could be down to the fact, we were brought up as kids on real grub. Junk food was not around in our times. Mums cooked real home food. Also, we spent our time riding miles on bikes and did not spend our days sitting in front of a TV or games console. As a kid and a teenager I was almost skeletal thin, working on paper rounds and caddying until I left School. Then, straight into a factory working a long hard week, on my feet the whole time. Little did I think then, this lifestyle would benefit me many years later.

    Kids live in a cotton-wool life these days. They are not free, parents have become paranoid of letting their kids wonder free. The sad fact is, most serious harm done to kids, is done by family or people they know. Also, so much bullshit and pressure out there encourages kids to grow up too fast.

    Yes it's all fast food and the latest technology for today's kids going out to play is a dwindling pastime, I do agree parents are very protective of their children these days but it is over the top in most cases
