    So when I came aross degrees Rankine for the first time in my like in 2003, I hadn't a Scooby what they were on aboot.

    Tips, we was at war with the Netherlands for many a year which is where the insult about Dutch courage came from. There was a clue in the name, Dutch.

    Misty, found this, but don't know if is correct or not:

    The origin of the phrase "to go Dutch" is traced back to the 17th century when England and the Netherlands fought constantly over trade routes and political boundaries. The British use of the term "Dutch" had a negative connotation for the Netherlanders were said to be stingy

    Thank-you Sleazy I didn't know that. Having visited Amsterdam more than once and recently. I can confirm that this is no longer true.

    I see you found the book. Cider with nosey.
    Now as Moti is not with us this evening I feel this is fair and proper like.

    Good morning all and one. Another bright day by here.

    I'm going to finish cutting the hedges today whilst they are still in the shade, then clear out a board full of cups ready for the elictrickery man to start work this week.

    I hopes alls are well, and that Rosie hasn't run off to join the circus as a strong-woman.
