We came across a brilliant model and dolls' house shop in Zaragoza during a recent visit. I collect dolls' houses so was more interested in those than the models, but they seemed to have just about everything.

I bought my first house when I was 40 as a birthday present to myself, I always wanted one as a little girl but my parents couldn't afford a proper one (sob!). Have spent a fortune on them since, you can buy just about anything to put in them, even cobwebs!

In that shop the owner had set up a display one furnished as a house of ill repute, it was hilarious. Even had nuns protesting outside. He showed me an article that had been published in a magazine about it.

By the way, you can't call your pasties "Cornish pasties" anymore, unless they are actually made in Cornwalll

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...t-2326250.html

Conservative MEP for the South West Julie Girling said: "It's a great day for Cornwall and a great day for Cornish pasties.

"Local food producers have been fighting for this day for nine years and now at least their products have the protection they deserve."

She added: "Now Cornish pasties are where they deserve to be - on a par with Champagne and Parma ham."

The EU's idea of an authentic pasty from Cornwall is one in the traditional shape, crimped on one side. The contents are uncooked minced or chunks of beef, swede, potato, and onion "with a light seasoning".

Big opening for the Chinese there with Conish pasties,.... with the added bonus of not having to get their tongue around their Rse.

some ways round that
1. drop the C to a c and indicate they are made in the "cornish way"
2. rename your house Cornish
3. change your name to Cornish

Any others guys\gals ? ? ?
