Is it a rack of different varieties of the same fruit?

I think I know this, I'm sure I've seen them on display in a pub, where we called for lunch in Cheshire.

You're almost there Jean!  The photo was taken at Goostrey Gooseberry Show in Cheshire, where they hold a competition every year. It is all taken very seriously!  We used to live near there some years ago, in Holmes Chapel.....not a million miles from where you live now!

I think you deserve another turn!!!   Cool

Why are people from the deep Mani known as Cauldroneers ?

Sangria mountains have another name in local parlance: the Kakovounia or Bad Mountains. By a convenient slip of the tongue, Kakovounia became Kakovoulia, or Evil Counsel, an epithet that fit nicely with the Maniots' reputation. Leigh Fermor preferred to think the slur derived from the three-legged cooking pots their pirates were said to have worn as helmets; translated, that would have meant the rather innocuous "country of the Cauldroneers."

Is this the answer GG?
