Hi Mary,

See you have posted clue, etc, on another thread.

Cream and curds have been suggested, my money would be on curds, see the verb - clabber on the dfinitions below.

Noun 1. clabber - raw milk that has soured and thickened
dairy product - milk and butter and cheese
Verb 1. clabber - turn into curds; "curdled milk"

Yes I said cream on the other thread but curds looks to be correct...wasnt it Little Miss Muffet who was eating her Curds and Whey?...perhaps it should have been eating her Clabber and Whey!

Absolutely chrisg - clabber and whey it is.

One of the unsolved mysteries of my childhood (I have an exceptionally long memory!) was whether the tuffet she sat on was

a tuffet - a tuft of grass
or
a tuffet - a low milking stool

I have always assumed that because of the curds and whey connection that it was a low milking stool but I have never been certain and it has scarred me for life!!!

Tuffet for a stool gets my money, but there is also another meaning for Tuffet...it is an English measurement of capacity ..a Tuffet equals 2 pecks or half a bushel...tis a sad life we lead sending out this stuff...what would we be doing had the internet not been invented?..crossword solving was a lot harder 20 years ago.

There is no need for abusive language, is there?

This:

... It's just that mad as a box of frogs bitch Dawn Cassie Laura et al in the grip of another bender. It's best to just ignore the poor demented cow.

It wasn't Trevor who mentioned frogs it was me. I can only say that the frogs in a box did not include bullfrogs.
As far as Sammy's chastisement of me is concerned I say the following.
Yes, I was abusive to Dawn. Perhaps I was over the top. I would normally apologise at this point or say something even more abusive. But it may be that Dawn is not just an utter arsehole,rather someone who really does have mental health(or alcohol) issues. I don't want to have a go at anybody who is clearly unable to defend themself. I shall not communicate with her again knowingly.
