I concur.

I've seen the "one" who delivers in my area on my morning runs so they do still exist.

ISTR reading recently (earlier this year) that Dairy Crest are down to their last 5000 or so milkmen.

Unbelievably, I gather there is actually such a thing as COBOL.NET :suicide:

I wonder if "Exclusive to Iceland" is meant to indicate a good thing?
As we know you need to be a true gourmand to shop at Iceland

Definitely the one side burnt crispy pancakes!! Minced beef.

Also dandelion and burdock from the Alpine van (every Friday). if we were good (and dad had some money) we also were treated to a bottle of cream soda and a mars bar.

Milkman. I have one; people don't believe me when I tell them.I see the bottles outside the odd house here and there in Durham. We also get rag'n'bone men prowling the streets reasonably regularly in the NE.

I saw someone selling Rio pop the other day, that was a blast from the past.

We get the Rag and Bone van here every couple of weeks, complete with loud hailer annoucing their arrival.

Area too posh for Rag and Bone men but last time I stuck a unwanted large metal domestic appliance a truck full of scrap suddenly appeared and asked if they could collect for me. I happily obliged rather than pay to dispose of it....

Sasparella and root beer too. Those were the days when cloudy lemonade was posh.
