Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

    And just how many Americans under 40 ran to their dictionary (oh wait punched in on their computer) to find the meaning of Habidashery?

    Put that up there with bumbershoot

    My hat's off to you! I stayed in Oxford for two summers quite a few years ago now. On Turl Street there was a shop run by two elderly gentlemen, brothers I believe. One of them made men's shoes, only to order and only after an interview for a foot measurement and to see if you were the proper sort. The other made split cane fly rods, only to order and only after an interview, etc., etc. On London's New Oxford Street, there's a shop that's been in business since the dawn of time making only bumbershoots and walking canes. You can buy a cane with a built in flask (they don't do swords any more) and a huge umbrella made from whatever exotic materials your credit card limit allows. Interview mandatory. The haberdashers are mainly on Jermyn Street.

      Neill has provided us with our next word for the lexicon.

      In the early 90's My parents decided to spend a bit of their kids inheritance. They invited the children to join them in spending their inheritance. All we had to do was pay airfare and they would pick up the rest. I was the only one of four that took them up on their offer. In my book I went with my parents to spend my sister's inheritance. 2.5 weeks in the Land of Oz and 2.5 weeks in Aotearoa. Down in Dunedin on the Bushy Ranch I got my fill of fresh lamb!

      Back to Neill's Auz Slang. Today's word is - tucker, an Australian word for food in general
