Re: accrington food festival

Gyros is meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie, then sliced and served wrapped or stuffed in pita bread, along with other ingredients such as tomato, onion, fried potatoes, and tzatziki.

Wraps are an unleavened bread (Tortilla) filled with a similar selection of meats and other ingredients like Gyros.

They are totally unrelated to an old style benefit payment system were you got a check posted to your house and you had to cash at the post office, which you immediately took to your local pub to pay off the debts you owed and then borrowed back from the landlord until the next G-Day. Well that's what used to happen in the Old Bank Blackburn back in the late 70's and 80's.....

Didnt it depend on who got to the envelope quickest .. the man to the pub .. the wife to the shop to pay off what theyd got on tick till next payday

Thanks for that Shillelagh, I shall keep my eyes open whilst I am wending my merry way down to the Peel park Pub to spend a happy couple of hour's with a few mates, if I can wangle a bob or two out the wifes housekeeping money that is.

I was the opposite side of the church, when it started a baby Magpie fell out of a tree and almost hit me on the head.

Re: accrington food festival

Alas it was a fatality, one of the security guys was stood behind me and I turned around and said 'They shoot the bird', which of course they didn't (they only shoot blanks at these events, it's all noise and fire but no actual bullets)

I did get some of the Spitfire, I don't think I was in the best place to see it properly even though I knew it would be coming from the East
