At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I'll mention again that I love mine -- the non-PU model. For sure, with regard to visual aesthetics, they're not all fancied up , but they're very authentic-sounding acoustic archtops; great for the money.

Nice guitars. I couldn't help but notice the 20% VAT. We in the colonies had a slight disagreement 240 years ago about that kind of thing. I'm glad our politicos haven't thought of that yet.

Not sure if it still exists, but some cafes used to mix up the leftover cabbage and mashed potatoes and fry it up. Remember it when I was. Kid.

OK, now I know what it is. Doesn't sound too appetizing, but that's just me. I thought bubble and squeak was champagne. At least I know what bangers and mash is. I wouldn't eat that either. I played an Irish style pub several weeks ago that served bangers and mash.

I made bubble and squeak yesterday with the leftovers from our Christmas dinner. I also love bangers and mash, not many things are as comforting and tasty as good olde bangers and mash. :)

Yes, it still exists. Some onion is usually added, and it's not against the rules to throw in any old other veg. I've never had it out, only at home, and I had some last night.

It sounds awful, but it's actually very good if seasoned and cooked properly.

Bubble and squeak is also rhyming slang for someone from Greece.

Partial to a bit of bubble and squeak, and love my NewYorker. Spent the last couple of days playing around with the riff from dave rawlings new song "short haired woman blues", which sounded better on the Newyorker than it did tapped out on a plate of fried leftovers.
