They peel them with their little knives, boil them for 20 of their minutes and then they smash them all to bits (something like that anyway) - loved that ad.
Right folks - time to get ready for bed now so will say Nos Da (can't go up the Horseshoe Pass here as I live in a bungalow).
I watched Martha and Mary - a real tear jerker. So I've arrived again when everyone is going to bed and our clocks here are an hour ahead.
Geoff mentioned tewits so I looked them up and it said peewits so I still don't have a clue. Sometimes I think I've lived here so long I don't understand English any more.
Yes Glyn, I watched Martha and Mary which is why I've been away and missed all the Yorkie chat. I really enjoyed it.
Derek, I have had a wormery for quite a few years now; if you have a burning question or two I may be able to help.
Liz to follow that conversation you need to have the yorkshire dictionary link that Geoff gave
Liz, a Peewit is also known as a Lapwing or Green Plover. A wading bird that likes mudflats and arable land.

I know what a real peewit is, I looked up tewit on Geoff's yorkshire dictionary and it said peewit but I thought it was more slang, not the bird. Now I can't remember why he mentioned tewits, need to go to bed - got to get up early to go to son tomorrow, 4 hour drive. Goodnight.
Oh, sorry, Liz. I wasn't in on the yorkie chat so am now as mystified as you.
Time for bed here too.
