This week is the 160th Open Golf Tournament held at St Andrews the world famous golf course.
The roads into the town will certainly be much busier than usual this week. When I was at the graduation I saw the stands being constructed, where we parked the car was just opposite the golf course but parking wont be allowed there just now , it seems they have large car parks just outside the town and buses are put on to take people into the town.
Lots of very famous people in St Andrews just now.
Pity I couldnt join in-- I'm sure I could always put on a pair of 'plus fours' then use the handle of my walking stick to whack that wee white ball onto the green and I do have a 'putter' I could take with me to finally get the ball into the hole Dancing Dancing Dancing Dancing Guess I'd be famous then too Silenced Dancing Applause

Just in case you dont know what plus fours look like:

I just read about this Thursday in my local paper. When I was reading about it I remembered you mentioning that you saw the stands when you were at the graduation.

I know I said it was the 160th open golf tournament but I may have got that wrong!
After all that hot weather we've had last month the Open at St Andrews was stopped for a while today because of the high winds. The weather has certainly has been very changeable here the past few days.
I like St Andrews because its a historic town and also there are lots of individual/specialist shops there and Luvian's Ice cream shop is there too - delicious ice cream it is too (just like ours used to be Very Happy Oh to turn the clock back - double noughat chocolate wafers, oysters -(not the fish kind) double sponge ices, chocolate cones and
my favourite - freshly made ice-cream with home made raspberry sauce with two wafers stuck on top- when people came on holiday from Glasgow and wanted this they asked for a 'Macallum'.
Luvian's also sell ice-cream snowballs. I had better stop right now - I'm drooling Pray Pray Very Happy Very Happy

I'm heading to raid the freezer after I get done posting here. We have some ice cream made by a local farmer waiting for me to sample it again! I love rum raisin and they don't make it, so I'll have to suffer with either chocolate, coffee or strawberry!!!

Did you eventually have your ice-cream Gil?
I had visitors yesterday and after our meal we had ice-cream (made by a local Italian Ice-cream manufacturer) fresh strawberries and double cream on top. May just have the same today Think Think
Well as we say here, 'In for a penny in for a 1'
Right now though I'm off to have some macaroni/cheese -it'll be ready in 5 minutes so I'll post again soon.

Well there are two things Italians are famous for here in UK:
1. Ice-cream

2. Fish and Chips

As you know the other day I had the 'ice-cream' well tonight I had to go into the next village to collect Gizzy from the vets and when I came out after I had got Gizzy the smell of the fish/chips cooking coming from shop two doors from the vets Drool Drool Drool Need I say more!!!!!
Yes! I ordered a 'Fish Supper' not sure if you have that in US?? (The fish is cooked in batter Yum! Yum!) and I had salt vinegar and 'chip shop sauce' put on it(It tastes different from the sauce you buy in the supermarkets)
I really enjoyed it when I got home and then I had a 'chip buttie' (a roll spread with butter with the chips(thick french fries)inside it)with the remainder of the chips.

I guess this snack contained many more calories than the ice-cream but it was worth it and let's face it --'tomorrow is another day'

A very satisfied Emmy Dancing Dancing Dancing

Most places here have Friday night fish fry night and it certainly does have batter and is fried! I've never seen a roll with fries inside of it that looks very interesting. I just looked the sauce up on line because I've never heard of it before....sounds wonderful I'll have to give it a try.

Gil - I've become allergic to strawberries in the past few years so I can't have them anymore but I'm glad you enjoyed your strawberry ice cream. Now when you're talking about chocolate ice cream you're talking my language!! Butter pecan and orange sherbert always make me smile too Dancing

Most places around here don't use that nice batter to coat the fish. There is a place down by the shore that has English Style Fish & Chips on their menu and one of my friends that has been to the UK claims it is very close to the real thing. I like lemon and tartar sauce (mayonnaise & relish) on my fried fish.
