That is a bit harsh, much more harder discipline that I ever received, but you turned out to be a great and wonderful person from what I can tell. :) What do you mean by your grandfather "dropping" you though. Did he literally drop you or is that a British term for something else?
He hit me with a left hook right on the jaw; to be fair, I should have known better.

Yikes!! Ouch! :blackeye
That upbringing worked for me; I knew what I was and wasn't supposed to do. I am an advocate for spanking; I think if its done right, its a good thing.
Children have more rights in law nowadays; when I was a child, there wasn't these silly laws for not hitting your children.

True, but there is a difference between spanking and beating children as well.

True, however this is the style of upbringing.
I don't agree with beating children, however punishment I do. I never received any punishment until I stepped out of line.



And it's like you said, you never did it again. Say what about my other question above? I thought that spuds were Irish and mash was British because the term bangers and mash means fish and potatoes I do believe.

My apologies, I missed that.
I'm not sure where spud derives from, however its been used in England for hundreds of years. Mash is an abbreviation of mashed potato; bangers and mash is sausage and mashed potato. This is one of my favourite dishes.

Oh yes and I do believe that you also call them chips as in fish and chips but it looks like I was half correct with that term. :)

Bangers and mash?
I like it too
But one of my favs is saffron rice and Italian sausage (pork sausage with caraway and other spices)
I was thinking about making that for dinner tonight.

Umm,.. that's all really good and all but I think it's best that we go ahead and go back on topic,.. so to do that I think I'm going to smack you upside the head for not paying attention to my sign! :hipsXD! JK! :tongue (Actually I'm not, I smack my friends around all the time but it's only playfully is what I mean. :wink)

Yes
Definition to sack of spuds here; I forget that these phrases are local and not international.
They are not foreign to us here. Maybe to HeIsRisen but not to us in general. I knew exactly what you meant when you said, "Dropped you like a sack of spuds." I use spuds and potatoes interchangeably often.

Seeing how I used to live in Idaho...I'm fully aware of all the terms used for potatoes.

Impressive; I thought it was more local. Perhaps it may not be necessary to explain all of the saying I think are local.
