    That Collective noun competition - WINNERS

    Almost forgot - I promised to name the winner on the blog. So many entries but in the end Lindilou took it with a "Meander" and JJ - came in right next to her in second place with "Siteload" HA HA HA

    Hi Ponyboy!

    I'll have a better look later as today lots of footy matches on the stadium I'm the warden, but have scrolled down to find out where i had stopped last time and found a subject about Laguiole knives!

    I'm going to send the link to JJ as he has started a collection of those so particular knives!:winky:


    I hope I find some time in the afternoon to go on reading!

    Fantastic Frankie, We're near Marseille right now - such a shame in one way cos we'd love to meet you but hopefully early in 2014 on the way back from Maroc we should get a chance to pop in for a p'tit cafe

    In order to taunt me it will have to be a bespoke one with a personal message engraved on it's blade from a Princess.:winky:

    A difficult assignment JJ - there was a bit of a clean out of the "Princess" class here in the late 1700's but I'm not one to fold at the first bit of pressure - unlike the masterfully engineered Laguioles.
    Still laughing at "site load" by the way
