I'd never heard it so far as I am aware, but now it's been explained (!) it is basically the same as the English " 'allo me old cock, how are yer?

Perhaps there is an opening for a new restaurant chain in London called 'Biloute' to rival 'Zizzy's', only selling ch'ti food - and beer of course!

A real turnip IMO, but worth watching now you've to stay at home. It shows how people of our area are, straight forward and square. What not to love?

I agree very much with your second sentence. They are lovely people, very warm, very welcoming, even to a Brit.

Well done Iain. Yes first big weekend of the season and we are all sitting at home. We are pretty lucky here though. Surrounded by countryside so not hard to social distance when out walking or biking. Sadly yesterday I had to put the battery manager on the MG because that's going nowhere in the near future.

If it helps, we have got two days of "live" streaming from Goodwood on t'net, a compilation of stuff from previous MM's. Might even get to see & hear Henry H-F again.

I enjoyed a weekend of old Goodwood's, some of which I had seen before, some not. It seemed to be just as cold in the old days as this weekend!

Nice to see a lot of HH-F.
