I don't know how far back my fambly crest goes, but it has a pig's head on it, an' it's haccurate.
Ha ha, more like its a boars head my dear, which of course stands for Hospitality.
Does it? So I'm boaring? And that means people like me? Well, I never!

We has them, an' I bin bit. Sore, itchy for days, nasty, evil things! Poor wild animals heve to put up with them.
@509: there you go again. Never now wether you are complementing or condemning..
they make tea out of cactus figs too
but that taste is too sweet for me
I must say you do your shopping in a strange shop that sells nettles and cactus and fig tea ... yuk, dont like the sounds of um, ill stick to my Earl Grey thanks you very much!!
I have tried a lot of herbal teas, but I haven't found many that I'd have again. I also hate Earl Grey. When I used to drink caffeinated tea, I used to have two teabags in a cup, then I'd stick it in the microwave to stew it. Strong, sweet and milky, and I'd have about four of those per day. I was always having heart palpitations (I have a bit of a heart problem anyway), so I'm glad I gave up when I did. Now I have maybe one or two cups of cocoa - weak - per day. It's not very good for you, but it isn't addictive, and it doesn't make me feel anxious. Unless I'm addicted or it's winter, I don't really feel like hot drinks.
In summer I began making dairy-free smoothies, with flavoured soy milk, lemon sorbet, banana and soy yoghourt, with a dash of maple syrup. They were so good!
@ 525 have you tried mint tea?
I am addicted to it and have four different blends of mint tea
I have never liked the taste of coffee
and with milk and sugar it tastes even worse, yuk!
morning, noon and night it's tea for me
No, I can't remember ever trying mint. I wouldn't buy a whole packet just to try it, but I'll keep my eyes open for some in smaller lots. As for coffee, I never tasted it until I was quite old. My family never drank it. We always had tea. I dislike its taste, although I once had a cup of coffee that was very expensive, and it tasted divine. It always, without fail, upsets my stomach, so I never drank it very often. I am just so much stronger without caffeine, and it's no loss after you get over the addiction.
Whazzzzup ,,with you, i need caffeine, i by neat caffeine and mix it in with me coffee, followed by a red bull, then for lunch.....
Ah, spoken like a true addict, man...
