NI, List,

Handy online Latin Translator here.

http://www.translation-guide.com/free_online_translators.php?from=English&to=Latin

Just inscribe the Latin phrase you want translating on a wax tablet or parchment scroll, ship to Rome and within 6 months you will get an almost incomprehensible answer by return messenger.

Regarding the original poll, from which this discussion has deteriorated, I always put the teabag in first and pour on boiling water.  I then remove the teabag, put it in the compost caddy, add the level teaspoon of sugar and then the milk.  Although purists will say this practice scalds the milk, I hate fishing teabags from mugs where someone has added the milk first.

If it coffee (instant), I add the milk first to the coffee powder and sugar and then add the water. This might make the coffee not dissolve for a while but it saves scalding the milk, which affects the final taste.

TEABAGS Shocked us proper northerners all have bushey moustaches to filter out the tealeaves when drinking a PROPER cup of tea: take a 1 pint mug,well seasoned;add 2 spoons of tealeaves;pour on boiling water,if you own a saucer,put it over the top,if not,borrow the cats dish.Leave for 5 minutes;during this time you can apply first aid to the hand that held the cats dish;add a little milk,for best results,less than a week old,and 5 spoons of sugar NOW THATS A CUP OF TEA  Grin.......another cucumber sandwich vicar?

NI,

The concept of a "northerner" depends from where you come from. It's a matter of relative geographical locations.

For someone who spent a lot of his early life in central Scotland, does that still make me a namby-pamby southerner?  Wink

Ken
Ken,I think it is all relative,and and may be decided by things like putting the milk in first,or by living south of an arbitrary line drawn somewhere south of what the person what is drawing it lives.perhaps.

For us real coffee drinkers.  Daily routine, starting as early as possible:

1. Grind good quality beans.  Doesn't have to be the most expensive but definitely NOT DECAFFEINATED.
2. Use a decent coffee maker (i.e. not one with a hot plate and glass jar combination that burns the coffee) and a good paper filter.
3. Use filtered water.
4. Allow machine to do its stuff.
5. Pour coffee into a china cup/mug.
6. Drink and enjoy. (Do not taint palate with biscuits/other tasty goodies - have them separately.)
7. Have another cupful.
8. Repeat the process 6 to 8 times a day.  More if you wish! (Last cup around 23:00 hrs.)

NO MILK.  NO SUGAR.  JUST BLACK AND AS STRONG AS YOU CAN TAKE IT.

Wonderful.

Sleepless nights?  Never been a problem.  Sleep is annoying but necessary.  A decent sized bladder also helps.

Also enjoy just good, old-fashioned, plain/filtered cold water.

Tea?  Sorry - Can't stand the stuff.

Seems like an unfair smite to me.  I thought it was rather a good comment.  (Maybe I'll get smitten for siding with AJS)  Can we have a poll on whether or not AJS has been hard done by.  Roll Eyes
