    I still hear "tickle the innards" from time to time when it's pub o'clock. As for the rest...

    Cheers,

        so now we can all talk like what Fick and them East End boyz did
        Some people see things as they are and ask: "Why?"
        I dream of things that never were and ask "Why not?" - Kennedy

          The other day I was reading a Ripper fiction story, A Good Night's Work, by Susan Clemens....and the phrase " a punch up the old whiskers " popped off the page.
          I like that one.
