"Red sky in the morning, Shepherds Warning

Red sky at night, Shepherds delight..."

Now, I only assume thats to do with the weather and not some Sheep-related nonsense - Grainofsand might be better placed to elaborate...
From what I understand it was originally 'Red fleece in the morning shepherds yawning', 'Red fleece at night, shepherds excite'...something to do with lack of electric lighting and the staying power of the individual shepherds apparently.

Ouch..... that stuck the knife in deep!

I'm serious - born 18th May, 1982... Suspiciously, my Dad (ex-Army - REME) always had a kid on the way whenever there was a War on, so managed to get out of going...


No knife intended, I just assumed you were well into your 50's.

Attitude adjusted accordingly but in truth I am rubbish at getting members right.

I've eaten far more kebabs sober than drunk!

In fact, i cannot eat them drunk, they usually get left on the coffee table (as I pass out on my sofa with my trousers round my ankles and a half smoked "cigarette" - wink wink - in my mouth) for the missus to clean up in the morning...

I concur!

Especially with the EU referendum now taking place and possibly as soon as next year!

I remember my first Kebab in 1976, during a fortnights holiday in Margate. There used to be a great Geek Cafe on the front, I can still recall the aromas. They no longer offer the same delight, it's all iceberg lettuce and no red cabbage now a days, along with chilli sauce to deaden the taste buds.

Nice juicy Cumberland sausage, in a teacake, big dollop of Cumberland mustard and a slight smidgin of tommy sauce, Daddies preferred, but Tesco value will suffice.

Bacon butty has to be tommy.

Bacon and sausage if brown is to be used.

Tea needs to have boiling water poured in first, left to mast for 5 minutes before adding 2 sugars and a drop of milk.

Coffee should have milk added before water so not to "burn" it, 1 sugar.

I like the idea, there's way more Brits on here than I thought there were.

I agree, I would like to see a uk based forum. I was wondering just the other day whether there was a UK equivalent of ATS.. Hoping it happens

Tea - boiling water and leave teabag till you can be bothered removing - milk may be added.

Bacon roll or whatever your local term - brown sauce although red does if no brown available.

Cool not freezing beer and none of that fizzy nonsense.

Donner kebabs yum yum - used to have one on the way out for dinner and one on the way home too (this was the 80's/90's) still occasionally have one as a treat


Weather - Of course we talk about it - it changes minute to minute - if you live somewhere dull where the weather is the same every day then of course you don't talk about it - the weather is fantastic here and the difference in light levels makes for some amazing scenic pictures.

Is it true that wearing wellies actually accentuates the experience??

Here in Workington, Cumbria...just last week, it was red hot outside (about 15c), a couple of hours later it starting hailstoning, followed by snow, then rain, then back to a blistering 15c (-3 is classed as a warm sunny day up here, t-shirt and shorts weather)

Go figure....
