Much more behaviour like that and you'll have to wear purple and learn to spit Liri

I think they'll be better off without watering - cold and dryish  is better than cold and wet.

Enjoy your holiday

Of course, that first  and his wife's -  that goes without saying (or should) .............. but please let me throw rotten tomatoes at him too

Depends on your choice - the brown skin usually flakes off if you roast them.  That's easier than blanching in hot water.

If ever there was a case for putting someone in the stocks and hurling rotten tomatoes at them, Philip Green is it.

Wouldn't it be sooooooooo satisfying?

Back in the 60s, 70s, 80s there were quite a few USAF air bases in East Anglia, and many of the servicemen, particularly the officers, preferred to live with their families out in the villages rather than 'on base' and their children attended local village schools.  

Prior to that there had been very little organised celebration of Hallowe'en in the area other than a few of us hollowing out mangolds and sugar beet for candle lamps, and running around in old sheets - it was very frowned on by the many Baptist churchgoers who lived in the area - however the American children enjoyed introducing the British children and their teachers to their own traditions from the US and the popularity of the event grew very quickly.
