........the first lot we labelled Taylors at 6d per quarter, and the next lot were labelled Trebor at 9d per quarter. Total rip off ;)

That's going back a bit then  ;) ;)

1971 or before.

I remember in the run up to decimalisation everything was double-priced.

I had a fountain pen marked 15/- and 75p.

It was to help out the elderly and easily confused.

And everything was upped to the nearest £1. So 19s 10d/11d became £1, except in the 99p shop.  ;D

Heinz beanz are soft soggy shite. In blind tests they come nowhere.

Unless they are being sold at 4 tins for a quid I won't touch them.

you're not a fan then .....  ::) ::) What about HP beans?  :)
Aldi beans are good. Don,t get Sainsbury ones, they,re like bullets. ;D

Andy as you are our beans expert but anyone else might know too,

What is the answer to how many beans makes five?

This was a popular and irritating question adults asked children back in the early 60ís. Then they thought the answer was hilarious. I suspect it was on a tv show at the time.
I was always taught:

2 beans
Half a bean
A bean and a half
And a bean


But the shermans do it slightly different.

Just checked with Mrs TB, and she has confirmed that Beanz Meanz Heinz.  End of.


Anyone who disagrees is wrong. You know it, I know it, my mum's dog knows it.

It's really not a good idea to put a tin of beans through a mutt.

The consequences don't don't bear thinking about. :)
