๐Ÿ”นSandwich

Brexit definitely has a lot of surprises in store for you. The latest to date concerns the ham & butter sandwich (jambon beurre), invented by John Montaigu, Count of Sandwich, in 1762 before crossing the Channel to conquer France. It will soon be banned at the border because of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, effective on the evening of 31 December.

The information might make you smile. The Guardian newspaper devoted an article to it on Saturday 19 December, after the British government officially warned the country’s truckers of the risk they would run in crossing customs by eating their snacks. The warning applies to ordinary tourists.

๐Ÿ”น American football

I have not watched so much football since the early 1970’s when I was living in Philadelphia and followed the Flyers. Now that I have access to the NFL channel I find it an excellent way to do something on the side (Blog etc) and watch TV. Nothing has improved much, 4 quarters of 15′ each, games actually lasting up to 3 hours, tons of commercials, actual average real game action during the 3 hours around 12′.

Superbowl LV will be on Feb 7th in Tampa, Fl.

Somebody should tell the Colorado Colts that their orange uniform is ridiculous and makes you wonder from which jail they have just all escaped. Anyway, they lost at the weekend against the Buffalo Bills.
