Deck the halls, roll out the barrel of Real Ale, sing hey-nonny round the maypole, send someone to Tesco's for that rum Selkie likes so much in her daiquiris, put the kettle on for Thog's decaffeinated (snigger) tea, pour Lili a Guinness and give her all the chocolate she needs, and pray essay the ancient Line Dance Of Greeting (as performed only in certain parts of Essex around the time of the Chartist Riots) for lilifae is among us!
Welcome, Liz.

You seem to have much the same situation over there as in Poland, where my wife's from, where sheep aren't raised so much and the native meats tend to be pork or beef. Lamb's very common over here, thanks to the Welsh sheep industry and imports from New Zealand. Mutton not so much, as I said, and there seems to be a strange resistance to goat. It's not on the supermarket shelves, although I think a significant proportion of the ethnic population of the country would regard it as a staple and nothing out of the ordinary.
We have, though, in recent years been treated to ostrich, kangaroo and alligator, all of which we've tried and enjoyed, especially ostrich.
What I want to do one day is try some of this Kobe beef. You know? The stuff where the animals have been raised in Disneyland and have their own masseurs and aromatherapists? I'm really sceptical about whether this makes a difference to the taste of the meat, but I want to try it for myself.
