I love Herriot.  have two of his books on the BN to edit and submit to 
Bookshare and have a book about his life to submit called "All Things 
herriot" which is very interesting so far.

But shall leave you hanging till I get it uploaded.  smile.

Coming from a farming community, where we drank milk out of the cow, smile, 
and I got to feed calves, and scratch pigs.  Well.

His dog stories are wonderful and on Marissa's list making it through the 
pipeline.

The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to
stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs.

So you're a Herriot fan too?  I thought his first books were hilarious.
Another term they use is that they hoover a carpet rather than vacuum it,
and the TV is a telly.

yep, and it is also another term for Molassis itself, and was used by
farmers to "drug" their cows and horses with medication and home remedies.
I learned courtesy of James Herriot.  smile.

No doubt where the adjective  found in books, at least
old novels,  "treacly," used to describe someone who
is overly sweet, comes from
