Poles love the taste of beetroot. Especially the taste of beetroot soup. Unfortunately, this taste is so unique that such a rarity is only available in Poland.

Well the fact that beetroot soup is only available in the land of the Pos will be a surprise to hundreds of millions of people. Somebody should tell them that only Poles can have the stuff.

The best borscht I ever had is here in Dublin, the pelmeni too. Restaurant is a bit of a dump tho.

Even Nadia agreed the borscht is the best, I could tell cos she stopped talking.

Beetroots and Borscht.

Luxury.

Soil were for well-off folk. All we had were sediment off mud, grandad’s toenail clippings and cat vomit. All on a barm with gravy.

But we were happy.

Mother cut the pockets out of our pants so that we'd have something to play with,
but I had expensive bath toys both a toaster and a hair dryer!

We were so poor I had no clothes at all until I was nine. Then my dad bought me a cap so I could look out of the window.....

I'd like to thank the late Eric Sykes for that joke, Owdum Lad, wrote a lot of stuff for Spike Milligan, also the late, who was a genius in my book....

He wanted 'I told you I was ill' on his gravestone, and I well remember him on This Is Your Life saying these two gems about someone on it...

"He's written over 300 songs - all crap"

and

"He started at the bottom - and stayed there..."

Best I ever had was in Cyprus...    Before Gazprom came along and swallowed up smaller Russian Gas companies - 'or else' - there was a wonderful Russian Gas Company Restaurant in Limassol - they employed great cooks from Latvia, Ukraine and Armenia ..it was a matter of pride and constant competition to produce the best for the bosses

Funny but while I thought Eric Sykes a hugely funny bloke I could never get a hard on for Spike Milligan.

Like me with Trump then?!

I'm off to see Ollie Reed's grave in the near future - another hero of mine, lived his life to max. It's in Churchtown, Co. Cork.

Not really the same. I didn't harbour delusions about the guy's intelligence. I didn't dislike him. I just didn't find him very funny.
