On the First Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...A partridge in a pear tree,
On the 2nd " Two turtle doves,
On the 3rd " Three french hens,
On the 4th " Four calling birds,
On the 5th " Five gold rings,
On the 6th " Six geese a-laying
On the 7th " Seven swans a-swimming,
On the Eith " Eight maids a-milking,
On the 9th " Nine ladies dancing,
On the 10th " Ten lords a-leaping,
On the 11th " Eleven pipers piping,
On the 12th " Twelve drummers drumming.

wild --> turkey

Wild Turkey - Bourbon.

NOTE: Must be 18 or older to access the Wild Turkey Site. (A popup comes up immediately
asking your country of origin, and your birth date.)

[EDIT:] NOTE - In the US one must be 18 to work at a bar and be able to serve alcohol, BUT,
one MUST be 21 before being allowed to drink alcohol. (At last check....)

I was totally confused over the figs - newtons link.

Not surprising really as Newtons is an American brand name unknown to most outside of the U.S.

Cookies we understand as it appears in many American publications, movies and TV shows, a substitute word for biscuits.
Which is another word Americans don't understand, biscuit means cooked twice and produces a crisp, unleavened sweet product, not a piece of bread.

A Newton to me is
Newton, absolute unit of force in the International System of Units (SI units), abbreviated N. It is defined as that force necessary to provide a mass of one kilogram with an acceleration of one metre per second per second.

There is a good number of things that don’t translate the same. The Fig Newton is a good example.

Ooops!

I misspelled the actor's name....

Darren, (with an 'E', NOT an 'I'), McGavin played Kolchak.

(Too late to edit the last Post, so I've added this one.)

"Evening All" is/was a friendly official greeting from a local Police Constable out on his beat.

May be followed up with a "What have We here then?..."

Beaks -> teachers In the UK, in boarding schools, teachers used to be referred to as beaks. See the book "Down with skool" and Nigel Molesworth
Happy Crunching,
