    "Buff" question for native English speakers

    Although I have bought a “buff” in the past, I tend to call them snood’s. I was told years ago that it was a combination of the words scarf, neck, and hood. I do however agree the word buff is a branded name for this product, but I also agree that it’s been in the English language for that...

    CF - Albergue Kitchen Etiquette?

    If this is the norm of people disregarding what’s requested of them, then I would hazard a guess that this is why there is no equipment in these kitchens. As for the colour coding on the cutting boards (sometimes knives too) this was brought in to kitchen in the early ‘90’s by European food...

    I do understand that I don’t have to announce anything that I don’t want to, and maybe it’s just an Irish (cultural) thing, but usually within 5 min of sitting down with someone you’ve not met before, it’s usually follows in the order of Name, where you’re from and what you do for a living.

    Thanks Frank, I honestly didn’t think about the difference if I’m cycling, I will be using a mixture of route and road and taking my time as much as I possibly can, no need to rush. Ive already planned or taken in to consideration places that don’t take cyclists, I got an app for my phone...

    Dear wandering weirdo, I do have a slight and boarderline ocd compulsion to rip the the knife from a persons hand, because I cringe at the sight of people using ( incorrectly) knives, for fear that they’ll do themselves a mischief, it really sets my teeth on edge, like nails on a chalk board...
