I tried grits in Florida - you have them with brekkie - at an all-you-can-eat type buffet restaurant we went to on a regular basis (Golden Corral). They were nice. *memories of crispy, just done how I like it, bacon - mmmmm*.

The only thing that put me off the breakfasts there was seeing Americans (no offence) having a savoury brekkie, eggs, bacon, wahtever, and putting a pancake with syrup on the same plate and eating it at the same time!! Yuk!

I DID have pancakes too, but as another course! I wish they'd open a Golden Corral here in Hopton, well in England anyway!!

Chitlins (chitterlings) are pigs' intestines!!!

Gross!!

:(

Anne, that's not unusual. I've eaten pancakes and eggs, etc., many times. I don't smear it around like a cake mix, but I do eat it on the same plate. Why does that make your toes curl? lol

It's the 'sweet with savoury' thing, Pats.

I've always wondered if I'd like Grits - never actually tried them - do they taste nutty, as porridge can? If so, they'd be for me.

AND I have a husband who regularly has honey and marmite mixed together on the same piece of toast. Thank goodness through the week he breakfasts much earlier than I do. (And at weekends i read a book)

Patty, you CAN'T say you don't love Gone With The Wind, that's UnAmerican... :)

Actually, Linda, my quote wasn't intended to indicate I don't like the movie. It was just a quote from it. Maybe I should've quoted something different, but I really couldn't think of any other lines. lol

Well, no, now you mention it Patty I can't think of any other quotes myself other than 'Ohhhhh, Ashley'! when Scarlett is trying to make up to him ...(and some best forgotten from poor Hattie MacDaniel. What awful work she had to do in the 1930s.)

(No, I was sure you did like the film!)

Hattie had talent. Glad the days are gone that put her in a box.

I think the think tank should have thought more thoughtfully before making such a thoughtless statement!

Yes, absolutely, Ken. What were they 'thinking' of, indeed? If they are Cameron's 'favourite think-tank' can they really not see he's distancing himself from that kind of attitude very fast?
He squashed it firmly - on a trip to Carlisle - best thing he could do.

Terry S:Going back to your original heading,yes I agree with this 'think-tank'(since when did tanks ever think??-They just fire shells)...anyone who has the misfortune to be stuck in a Northern conurbation or Metropolitan conglomeration,such as Sunderland or Gateshead, should seriously think of moving to Torquay and booking themselves and their families into a nice Hotel,and soon enough they would begin to feel a whole lot better.(It's not rocket science,is it?)
p.s.:Is this controversial?
