Yes, and I just remembered that one character in what I'm trying to finish now is a dead guitarist. She will also die in my story, but that's nothing, because of her present condition. At least she won't complain.

Lisa,
How Silton got its name, the cheese makers in the Bevoir Valley came up with this cheese, the merchants in London heard about it & asked for some to be sent to them.

The cheese was sent overland to the nearest stage coach which happen to be The Bell Inn in Silton, when the cheese arrived in London, the merchants liked it so much, but could not find who had sent it, only that it come on the York to London stage coach & was loaded in Silton, they presumed the cheese was made in Silton & the name has stuck ever since, the area the cheese comes from it now protected area & only silton made in that area cane be called silton, where as the village of Silton has to call its cheese by some other name.

Cheddar many years ago was made in Cheddar, but with modern chesse making this ceased & the cheese was made else where, the name was never protected as you can see by all the worlds versions of cheddar cheese. One company used to mature the real good cheese in the caves in Cheddar, pleased to say a small cheese maker has re stared making cheese in the village once again.

Neil.

Neil -

Very interesting - it's funny how things change over the years!

Maybe they should put little maps on the labels so we can see exactly where things are from.

How odd can this be, yesterday trying to catch up on wine consumed, one tried had a grape called Friulano, not having come across this before, did some checking, first thing to come up
Friulano- made of a Hard Cows Cheese from Canada ???

More reading & fine its really Sauvignon Vert, grown a lot in Chile, Italy calls it Friulano from the area the grape grows.

This is why I enjoy the studying & naturally trying wines, so much to learn about.

Neil.

I agree that it's fun to learn smile.

I also think labels should be clear, so someone in a wine shop doesn't have to research for hours smile.

Clear labels!! What fun would that be? This reminded me that I wanted to find out what was in a particular lambec that had an uninformative labels, and now I don't recall the name, but I will try.

I have lots of ways I have fun - making origami, going dancing, reading a good book. But being baffled in a wine store by obscure labels doesn't count!

Anything which one can learn something each day & enjoy, must be fun.

As they what ever rocks your boat.
