2 the house opposite Chorlton Methodist Church on Manchester Road - you know, the one with the cannon and the american cars in the huge garden. it looks like an old georgian mansion

Trying to think of some very old ones. I was talking to a friend about the old shops in Chorlton, now gone. These were some of my favourites.

1.The Flying Machine - was very good for art matierals and pretty things.
2. Does anyone remember George Glass,where the Pizza Place is now? Everything in the whole shop was crammed into the window.
3. Where the You and Me is was a ladies underwear shop where you could buy the most arcane items of clothing,should you need directoire knickers and a finely boned corset.
4. The Irish shop was good. They did very nice black puddings.
5. Cant think of a number 5, would anyone like to nominate?

5 Favourite foods from Chorlton -
Brie fritters with cranbery coulis - sadly discontinued by Lead Station
Veggie Sausage rolls - from Hampsons. Why have no other bakeries caught on to this one (Hampsons sell out by 11:59) ? Greggs I mean you.
Saag Chana from Royce Balti Palace, Beech Road - service with a smile and free poppadums.
Vegan Rolls - from Health Food shop which used to be George's/ Sunflowers
Cheese and tomato toasties - from Pat's Place

Dave I think you've gone too far. I think veggies are ok on the whole and should have full rights under the law. Some of them even have proper jobs and houses.

It's important to mention that hummus is usually offered in conjunction with a kebab in the middle east. They may all be argumentative buggers, but by crikey they know their hors d'oevres.

There I go again.

I also think veggies are ok on the whole. But then again I couldn't eat a whole one.
