  4. Gravedodger says:

    1 pass,

    3 PFFFFT ok raspberry
    4 Blackbird (ate the bloody berries in fact cleaned out the whole ‘Strawberry Fields’, well patch if you like)
    5 Raspberries, Strawberries, Blackberries, Logan Berries, or any combinations, Icing or castor sugar and pouring cream, if numbers are down in a jelly we jus luuuv Jelly and pouring cream. Normally only whip it lightly for an Irish coffee.

  5. alwyn says:

    1. Aristotle
    2. John Steinbeck. If you want a shorter version try Woodie Guthrie’s “Tom Joad”. About 6 minutes in all and Steinbeck apparently approved of it as covering the whole story.
    3. Raspberry
    4. “Strawberry Fields Forever”
    5. Raspberries and whipped cream. I find most berries too sweet.

    1. Aristotle – not the Onassis one, the other Greek
    2. John Steinbeck
    3. Raspberry
    4. Strawberry Fields Forever
    5. As it technically is a berry, I like a Banana Split with French Vanilla and Chocolate ice cream and a lot of whipped cream but no cherry. All other berries straight off the plant.
