    :j BOB :j You got your very own diary ! Whoo hoo. The Chronicles of Bob lol . Hope that you have a debt busting plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel. :D XX El4L

    Hello Mrs, I will have to think of an appropriate name for you..I can see a Mrs Miggins..:rotfl:

    I have a cunning little ferret AKA Mr.Bob, will that do as a plan?

    I do have a chronicle amount of pain sometimes, but you really don't need to hear the history of my piles..:o Too much info i know... especially at this time in the morning..but it's those turnips, play havoc they do:rotfl: :rotfl:

    Still lurking around with a hope of some salvation:cool:
  • When you talk turnips, are you actually talking rutabaga or swede?
    See, in Canada, a turnip is a large yellow root veg (what you call swede here) and a turnip is a rutabaga...
    Does that make sense?
    Please clarify

    Well well, I never knew that was rutabaga. I'm from Liverpool, so that *is* a turnip to me. But down south, they call that a swede, and they call swedes turnips. I had to give up in the end, and accept the southern version of the names. But I'm really with you, Z. :rotfl:

    So there you go bunny - there's a north/south divide in the naming of turnips.

    Perhaps we should call them neeps instead?
