Wheaten bread is soda bread with extra steps, we're fond of that up north. But that's more of a lunch/eat with soup or stew kind of thing. I love a farl with my Ulster Fry though and cheese on toast made with soda bread is the food of the gods.

I shan't get into a cold weather competition, but we've surpassed Baltic here and gone straight to Siberian wasteland.

This Irish joke made me laugh out loud. Of course being an amateur effort made it funnier than if it had been professional.

Nicely done, so.
I thought it was going to be the old Dave Allen one about the Irish chimneysweep who beat all comers at the Golf Club using only his broom.....

When asked what his handicap was, he repled "Electric Fires!"

My daughter starts her first full time job in HR tomorrow, after 5 years worth of degree and post grad course. I couldn't be prouder, she's done this all herself.
