    In Gillingham are they Kentish men or Men of Kent?

    In general, they're referred to as "men of caves".

She never cut her hand opening a tin of Princes because the key snapped off and it had to be opened with a knife. Corned beef- the meat of the working class.
    I was off-line because I was out with real people.

    As a kid we use to eat corn beef with pasta or rice. It was made up in a tomato sauce.

    I never ate it in sandwiches because most of the time I ate jam or marmalade sandwiches. Then occasionally crisp sandwiches and also tomato ketchup sandwiches.

    Oh and I'm not a socialist I'm liberal hence I prefer to drink beer.

    How very quaint.
    And did you have an outdoor lav too?

    One house yep. Though it was the spare as we had one inside.

    The other house the neighbour had an outdoor lav but ours was inside.

    Both houses were Victorian horrible draughty things and the council gave my parents grants to do various things to stop them falling down.
