Hi, One of Andy Stewarts records named the "Rumour" is nice to listen to. There is an alternative
to the "Geordie" subject in as much Newcastle, in the civil war was Royalist.

All this reminds me of the old story....

A Japanese business delegation were visiting Tyneside with the intention of setting up a car factory. They toured various engineering firms, shipyards and workshops, then all went back to the Chamber of Trade for a debrief. Through their translator, the thanked their hosts and said how impressed they were with the Geordies. In particular, said one delegate, they were amazed that several of the workers had already learnt some Japanese.

The locals were stunned, and asked the delegate to explain. He told them that in one foundry he had distinctly hear a worker call to a colleague and say, in Japanese:  "Owa marra - hoy ya hama owa hea!"

Dus it nae dae you gud tae speak yer native tongue,for too long our native dialects have been driven underground,by those that would have us believe, that we must speak the Queens Englsh,Up here north of Hadrians Wall,more and more people are reverting to speaking "the Scots language,..not Gaelic,just Scots,
How many times have we who make up the UK when we are on holiday in ..Spain Germany France,etc, we are automatically classed as English, whenever we open our mouths,.its ok if you are English,but for the like,s of Scots, Welsh, Irish,its a no,no,Whenever anyone says to me,"you are English"I tell them that in order to communicate i peak English,but I am from Scotland,
and before anyone jumps on me,"No I don,t want Scottish Independance" {-)
as fur oor Wullie an the Broons, you,ve obviously been getting the Sunday Post, {-)

Ref the original point of this post i.e. the round and square ends of bread slices; my Mum and my Gran always referred to them as Audrey and Polly. Any ideas where this came from? Anyone else heard it (East Midlands)?

Yes,back to the original point,...how easy it is to get side tracked,i,ve never heard of them being called anything but,Plain, Geordie and curly Kate,..but it would appear from the way we were side tracked,that its a Northerner term,..like Boggles,Boggies an broon ale,

I was brought up in the East Midlands - Northants - and never ever heard the rounded or flat bits of a slice of bread called anything! The crusty first slice of the loaf was called a "cob end", I think, but we were too poor to afford bread often!

Bread is traditionally called, 'the staff of life'. There are so many types and varieties - just like our selves/dialects etc and it may be that 'humour' is our yeast. I've subscribed/tasted many forums - Mayhem/mers 'rise above the rest' - the mix is  O0  right   O0 :} I have thoroughly enjoyed the thread/'gentle leg pulling'.  :-))

Wullie - As youngsters we loved the Wullie/Broons (alternating) Xmas 'annuals' - are they still published? -I don't read the (Scottish) 'Sunday Post'.

My Gran had a pair of them on her mantlepiece in Possil Park - Her father, Great Grandad Murdoch was a piper on a Clyde steamer (the Waverley) in his later years. Her husband/my Grandad's  favourite loco was powered by the  Napier Deltic (he was a driver on it in his last years before retirement). He was in awe of it's power/sound and comfort - "it pulls a dozen carriages like a piece o' string an I get hame clean". He was very unromantic about steam power - he started as a cleaner and worked his way onto the footplate. He was especially proud of driving the odd 'special' train north to Balmoral/May.

Methinks its time the missionaries were coming over the wall to educate those south of the border in Queens english.
Its a well known fact that the purest english is spoken in Inverness.

Hi Jock, I think  Wullie's bringing  up reinforcements on the thread  ;) - I like your idea as long as you send 'four an twenty' of them  O0.

I think Mike and I belonged to the 'Likely Lads' era  %). This series was a real personal favourite and I think La Frenais 's characterisation and writing was spot on. Geoff has impeccable taste and judgement.  :-))

As is usual, you have a problem with spelling. "Queen" has only 2 "e's" and not 3. And here was me believing that Scottiche education was better than wot we got. BY.
