Mrs SW and myself disagree on this and I'm with the cone which is clearly correct :thumbup:

Think we had a thread a year ago or so on this very subject.

Proper posh me :D

At our wedding as part of my speech I wrote a long poem about our life together and one verse touched this very subject.

"Then there are arguments,
But we only ever have the one,
That's when I fancy a scone,
And she calls it a S-con."

There is a place called Scone here in NSW sounds like cone as well but that's not the reason why i say it the same way ;)

gone here, think you'd get looked at over here if you used the cone version. :thumbup:

On that subject when over in England for the first time many moons ago I was asked at the bar what I wanted to drink, I replied "Vodka and white please." There was a long silence and confused look from the barman.

The local members will get this one and possibly Corky and co :thumbup: Also asked if they had soda and potato bread at breakfast in the hotel..... same result. :D
