Customs tell a man who he is, where he belongs, what he must do. Better illogical customs than none; men cannot live together without them.

    Very much so.

    They give us great comfort too, the security of belonging to a group of people. My custom is more French wine, croissant and Brie, or Maple Syrup and tourtière…..But I’ll adopt yours anytime, Cherie. :-)

  4. Nice quote.
    Where’s the cream?
    Do you normally spread jam first or cream first?
    Jam first – Devon style.
    Cream first – Somerset style.
    Ha ha… I think so. :)

    We celebrated High Tea testerday afternoon for Mother’s Day, Cherie, here at our senior-living complex in The Netherlands. I thought of all my Bristish friends, like you. :) We need these traditions for soulful living!

    Lovely tea. I miss my jam and clotted cream on scones.

  7. liz says:

    And when the custom is as good as scones and jam why question it?

    I’ve never met a scone I didn’t like:) but I have never seen a cherry one before. Of course it would be the perfect one for you!
