Christmas Memories from My Childhood Part 3: of Trees and Treats
here's some random miscellany and final thoughts relating to Christmas. Actually, I could talk about a lot more stuff here, but I don't...

Sweets, biscuits and chocolate from childhood @sm2n @jn2n @meddryn @eidoel
I remember the pebbles to.
I really enjoyed this Boo. I didn't have many of the things you mentioned, being from Canada, but I did recognize a couple of them. British sweets are the best. I absolutely adore Frye's peppermint cream.
The pebbles are still sold in German cities as 'Kieselsteine' from whatever river the city is on (eg 'Rheinkiesel' in Düsseldorf and 'Elbkiesel' in Hamburg). You can get white mice in special sweet shops... Not sure I know most of the rest....
Febooary day 5 childhood memories
Splat or no Splat
Hmmm....looking forward to sharing notes in a couple of weeks!
Sounds like a fun and wild ride... Throwing caution to the wind career-wise is necessary at times, and I've certainly done it. It's also a bit scary, particular at times like these... but that doesn't make it any less necessary. Check your brakes and let 'er rip!
I remember making go-karts as well. No health & safety back in those days. There are times when we think too much & over analyse. Kids know no fear, that develops as you get older. But, it does hinder us somewhat & that fear does hold us back. If we could combine the lack of fear of a child & the (supposed) wisdom of an adult, think what we could do.
