    Do you know the title of this post thread always brings back memories of the BBC show - have to say my mum and dad enjoyed watching it, and it was a favourite in our house  Smile

    "The Good Old Days, British television’s longest-running variety show, broadcast from 1953 to 1983, is being re-shown on Fridays on BBC Four. *
    What a pleasure it has been to watch once again great speciality acts of the past: trick cyclists, comedy drunks, ventriloquists, knife throwers. The Good Old Days aimed to recreate the golden age of music hall.
    The programme came from the ornate Leeds City Varieties Theatre, a Grade II-listed music hall built in 1865. The audience all wore Edwardian-era clothes."

    * It was actually 2016 it was re-shown, see this article here

    OMG yes I remember that! In black and white on Gran's TV with the goldfish bowl screen and a spider who lived in one corner behind the glass.

    OK the coffee saga becomes more surreal. They are now discounting the small tins of Millicano - except they are out of stock. The large cans and refill packs are back to full price now.

    Reminds me of another classic - The Twilight Zone.

    And still it continues, the Millicano is off discount and back on the shelves, along with the refill packs - but now the large tins are on at £4 again so just to be on the safe side I bought two more. Now I have enough coffee in the cupboard to last until Christmas.

    "Now I have enough coffee in the cupboard to last until Christmas."

    Think of all the money you've saved to go towards other necessary Christmas goodies Razz

    Have to say we are still sticking with the M&S coffee, it does taste nice and for me to say that when I'm not often a coffee drinker must be good - I think!

    Anyway kettle is on for a cuppa

    £2.10 in the Co-Op Sad Not sure if there's an ASDA around these parts, but I'd have to buy a lot to make up for the cost of the diesel to get there.

    I can remember (and not that long ago) when butter was under £1-00 … now it seems you are lucky if you can get it for under £2-00.

    It's still high up on my shopping list though thumb-up

    Margarine's still cheap. Just saying . . . of course it's a win-win for the bastards, they put so many dairy farms out of business through paying less than the cost of production for their milk, now demand has gone up so have the prices. Ker-ching.

    Do you know,  I wouldn't have a clue on the price of margarine I tend to walk straight past it.


    … we recently had a family get-together and we were talking about us as grandparents and also what we remember from when we visited grandparents. One of my memories (and I have a lot) was seeing Grandma with the dripping bowl, and spreading it on home made bread … she lived until she was 99yrs!

    What is Dripping?
    In home cooking, dripping was made by collecting the hot fat left in the roasting pan into a heatproof vessel, covering it and leavening it to cool.
    Nowadays, dripping is mainly used as a cooking fat used either to shallow fry meat or to dot over a joint to keep it moist during cooking. However, in the past, dripping was also used as a spread; like butter, it was spread on bread.

    Oh yes mother had a dripping bowl, even before we had a fridge it lived in the meat safe. She would pour in the (mostly lamb) fat and take off the top layer when it had solidified, and every so often chuck out the crud which collected underneath. Her roast spuds were to die for.

    I had another memory of Gran proudly showing her the block of Trex - an early trans fat - so they didn't quite get everything right!
