My Grandfather was a foreman in the original Marmite factory in Burton on Trent. As a little boy I used to visit. Boy did that yeast stink!!

That said, Marmite is in my blood.

Bythebay,

If this carries on we may have to get the moderators to start a whole new forum!  :001:

I have sampled Canadan cuisine many times as I have relatives not far from you (London, Kitchener, Brantford). The pick of Canadian food is definitely waffles and maple syrup.

Love: steaks, chicken, curries and chinese food, good malt whisky
Hate: marmite (!), seafood, nouvelle cuisine

Favourite: roast beef Sunday dinner with yorkshire pudding (I'm originally from East Yorkshire) and all the trimmings.

Hungry now so off for lunch!  :821:

Finally some sun here is Southeast UK as opposed to the sleet/snow/strong winds of the last week. Spent a lot of the afternoon fighting with the Trophy's bluetooth then said nuts to it and went out to enjoy the sun. :017:

Still cold and up in the dales quite a bit of the white stuff :233:
But starting to get a bit warmer and the dales are opening up very nicely. For our international cousins "some of the best biking roads in the UK" :062: :062:

Well, bythebay,
We had a cold front that moved through a couple of weeks ago. Dude! is like I was sleeping with long sleeve shirt and socks. Two blankets.  It must have gotten down to 65, (Fahrenheit) probably 64.5 considering the wind chill factor. I had to ride with the jacket that got no holes.

But its back to warm. I am wearing the mesh jacket again. Thanks God...freezing our butts off there for a while.  :153:

I agree with u snow is beautiful and refreshing. In fact, I love watching it on TV...Ha!
I rather shed water in the heat than put on clothe to keep cold out.

now if we bad my weather in your country we would just up and move in the TT for good...never mind the house!

Where to start?  I'm in the Piedmont region of the Southeast of America; three hours from the Atlantic ocean, three hours from the Appalachian Mountain Range.  Hot and humid in the Summer and mild Winters that have few snowfalls; haven't had to be off the bike for more than two weeks at a time due to weather.  Food is sweet iced tea, slow cooked chopped pork in a vinegar sauce, peacan pie, fried chicken, and vegetables overcooked until they're mushy.  Activities in my area are tractor pulls, deer hunting, college basketball (Duke, UNC, NCSU), and beach music. 

For motorcycling, there's the Blue Ridge Parkway--470 miles of scenic two lane road, limited access along the spine of the Blue Ridge mountains with lots of good roads right off of it.  Then at the Western end of the state there's the "Dragon", which boasts 318 curves in 11 miles, that has become a must-do for sports car clubs and bikers.

Quinn I lived in Lexington VA for three years and immediately after that in Raleigh for Four years. As far as I'm concerned you can draw a big circle covering that distance and you have the best place to live in the US. Ridden the Parkway many many times. And every road connected to it.  Used to love to take back roads all over to get over to  Asheville, Boone then ride in to Tennessee then up to western part of Virginia and back. As for food the thing I miss most is Carolina BBQ. These texans just don't know how to make good BBQ. Tomato based sauce and beef. Wrong sauce, wrong meat.
