Not another ....

... "I'll write more tomorrow .... blog"!!!
But that's what it is going to be.  The evening is running away with me and I have a couple of things to finish off before bedtime .... 
It seems such a long time since breakfast!
This 365Project picture has had a lot of comments on the site.  A number of friends in America hadn't heard of Marmite at all ... now one of them is likely to order a jar on-line to taste it!  Love it or hate it ... I'll be interested to know what he thinks of it.
I love it ... especially on toast.  The egg cup is a recent gift ... it came from my sister and brother-in-law with a wee pot of Marmite .... a useful travel size ... one need never be without Marmite!  The mug was a Christmas present ... the real December Christmas and not any of the other family celebrations in random months!
The egg was a duck's ... and very tasty too.
This blog tonight is a "filler" to ensure that something goes up every day.

Thanks be to thee,
O Lord Christ,
for all the benefits which thou hast given us;
for all the pains and insults which thou hast borne for us.
O most merciful redeemer,
and brother,
may we know thee more clearly,
love thee more dearly,
and follow thee more nearly;
for thine own sake.  Amen. 

Richard of Chichester  (1197-1253)

Ah, Marmite. I remember trying it while staying with friends in Aldershot, Hampshire and they eagerly watched for my reaction which was similar to theirs as they watched me dunk my toast in my a word: yuck. Surely it is more than "the pond" that separates us at times!

Oh ... there's a huge language barrier as well as the food differences! But isn't it fun?!!! I love Marmite! But then you'd have worked that one out!

Marmite is a peculiarly UK institution! Im sure it contains
warm memories of lovely countryside childhoods in the British or Irish countryside ...but its an aquired that most Americans cant quite aquire. I keep trying. but no luck yet! he he.

You might try taking a survey to see if people prefer their tea
with the milk added first, or after the tea has been poured and steeped. More cultural differences!
I've always put the milk in after til i spent time in the UK, now i like it both ways equally well!
