He could be of an age where he may have participated in the war to fight for your right to have an opinion & have a forum like this !

i hope he does read this thread & responds accordingly !

I'm waiting with baited breath...
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

'has a brother who grows groundnuts in Tanganyika'..... it's one of the last lines of The Happiest Days of Your Life...


Oh my! I didn't know! I'm moved to tears, which someday, when we meet, I'll explain.

BTW, I'm one of very, very, very small number of people who know a lot, a lot, a lot about growing things in Tanganyika, but it ain't groundnuts. No groundnuts growing in Tanganyika these days, I assure you with complete confidence.

Intrigued!

The line in the film was, apparently, a reference to a post-war scheme to Get Rich Quick in colonial Africa which went horribly wrong right from the very start.

I will answer for him then & I think his response would prob have gone something like this I would expect !

Look sonny I fought in the was that i thought would end all wars, I lost a lot of friends so you could enjoy free speech & people could read your halfwit observations on forums like these !

Could be wrong but i reckon I am not a million miles off what do you reckon ?

PS Respect your elders surely you not that ignorant to know what this generation went thru for you !
