does anyone know why the Mince Pie kind of Mincemeat is so called. There is obviously no meat in it (I think).

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mince_pie .I gather, though I have not yet viewed it, that the "Monastery at christmas" program had the original, and they were pretty awful

Anyone remember the wimpy bars you could go in get a burger and a coffee use to be a meeting place for young people,then Mc donalds moved in and pushed them out .Also in villa road handsworth use to be a ice cream parlour called the polar bear, who remembers that,I was only a kid then,thats going back a bit.

I really don't know how anybody in this day and age could eat bread and dripping. I couldn't even eat it in days gone by.
