Interesting, not a tradition I was aware of. I wonder if it was a very specific part of the UK that it came from that way associated with emigration to the Americas. I do know Run Rabbit Run….Missus Backstay heard about saying "rabbit, rabbit" aka "bunny, bunny" from comedian Gilda Radner. After she died young, her husband Gene Wilder supposedly wrote a play of that name.
Yeah I remember now. A one inch gap under the front door and a wood fire going and still some whinging.sure, it sometimes drops to minus 1 C.
trouble is, we don't prepare for cold weather either mentally or in our homes.
So an unusually long, cold, wet & windy winter makes us grumpy and sad.
The gap under my doors is more like 2 inches. That passion for bare Baltic pine floorboards and tearing up shagpile where our parents cut the doors short, to fit the shagpile.Yeah I remember now. A one inch gap under the front door and a wood fire going and still some whinging.
All the older homes pre 1960's? had solid timber floors, on which the original owners put underlay and carpet or lino.I have no idea what that means and I possibly might not want to know.
Prost! I have one here near my town. The second largest in the world, actually.
My son is just back from a visit to Blumenau. I had never heard of it before he met his girlfriend, who is from there, and now it pops up in my favourite sailing site. What are the odds?
