Re: A Belgian dish

sorry I don't really differentiate between Belgian and French when it comes to cuisine, as it's all largely considered "French" and served in many places as French food, anyway. I always thought French fries were an American thing, for that matter. The Brits call them "chips" bu...

Re: Best way to start learning to joust

Dear Templar, good for you; showing an interest in jousting. I agree wholeheartedly with Jason, some horses just won't do it; whether it's because they just don't want to (for whatever obscure reason) or because they have had a bad experience. I've seen horses that are terrific jousting horses, do s...

Just give us the go ahead and we will train them to dislike Gareth Peirce too. :P
