    Looks like a good day out on the bike, @Bolosun! But I need some translation. What's "tiffin" and "mooch"? :confused:

    Tiffin is an Indian English word for a type of meal. It refers to a light breakfast or a light tea-time meal at about 3 p.m., consisting of typical tea-time foods. In certain parts of India, it can also refer to the midday luncheon or, in some regions of the Indian subcontinent, a between-meal snack.
    And mooch just means a wander about.
    :)

    It reminds me of the film "carry on up the khiber" where Sid James is the ambassador and he asks for Tiffin. Someone says "its not tiffin time" and he replys "any time is tiffin time". Ive tries to live my life by that mantra :yum:yum

    In that film Sid James' character had a rather different interpretation of "Tiffin"!:joy:

    Yes he did. Kenneth Wiiliams in brown-face (would never happen now) as The Khazi. And don't forget the call that made all the "Indian" troops drop in prayer Mustapha Leek!

    Different times. But definitely a great performance by both Roy Castle and Terry Scott.

    .......and not to forget Cardew Robinson as Fakir, the snake charmer/magician and that great line from Bernard Bresslaw, "Fakir, off". :joy::joy:
