    Many moons ago here in the UK there used to be an advert (for peas) that went "Sweet as the moment when the pod went pop". Who the hell advertises peas!

    Needs a larger image Maya.

    I'm going to get told off by Larry and others, for going off topic here.
    But, you stirred up some memories, Egg. It was Bird's Eye Peas.
    I stopped myself from posting the YouTube video.

    Oops, I guess mine was too small. Here's a larger one, and if the .xar file is needed just say the word.

    Hi Rik, went to YT and watched the video. Loved it. Priced at 1/11 or one shilling and eleven pence! We knew the price of peas in those days. This also led to a very amusing link to a Monty Python sketch re Birds Eye frozen peas. ........... But as you state, way off topic!

    Cheers Larry and Maya.

    I just noticed that I posted an O with leaves and not a P so I fixed it. Also here is another one.
