Tell us more about the honeycomb - was this like a Crunchie bar made with boiled sugar or a natural part of a bees nest?

My wife sources her honeycomb from Laos because they sell the honeycomb with the juicy bee larvae inside. You have to remove the banana leaf packaging first (which the residents use to fry the honeycomb before eating), but once covered in a layer of acacia honey and then smothered in chocolate, you have a surprisingly juicy sweet snack with a nutty taste.

Nah! It's just a homemade Crunchie.

Well, let me wish you a Happy Birthday, three days late. Hope you had a good one. Oh, and Happy Birthday, America.

My wife gave me homemade chocolate-covered honeycomb: I ate the whole lot in one day.

Happy birthday Mince!

People used to "be late" for battles to see how it was going and whose side they should really support - so death was a fair penalty.

I have been binge watching 4 seasons of The Last Kingdom - destiny is all - slaughter the bastards!

Outpourings / Two generals . . .
« Last post by Mince on Yesterday at 06:54:41 PM »
Two generals are going to a meeting with the emperor.

General 1: "What's the penalty for being late to meet the Emperor?"

General 2: "Death. He's a stickler for that stuff. You know that!"

General 1:  "And what's the penalty for starting a rebellion?"

General 2: "Come on, man: it's death. Obviously. Why do you ask?"

General 1: "Well, we're late..."

The odd thing is that the above actually happened!

(Actually, I can.)

That must be the board equivalent of re-using the same birthday card.

Incidentally, though much older, Stallone is the same height as me. Of course, he lacks the Adonis build I am currently sporting.

Glad to hear that! Belated birthday greetings, Roger. Sorry I missed it, but Diane had my back with "loyal subjects". Any cake left...?

Typical! He gets on the board on my birthday to wish Happy Birthday to Roger.

Glad to hear that! Belated birthday greetings, Roger Mincey. Sorry I missed it, but Diane had my back with "loyal subjects moaning Minnies". Any cake chocolate honeycomb left...? No, obviously not. ..0

Today is George W. Bush's birthday. Also Sylvester Stallone's. So it's appropriate that I chose today, since I believe you're all the same age.
