Random England fact:
The Cornish Pasty, we all know of this icon, the miner's meal at "croust" time (break to eat time). What of one of Cornwall's other traditional industries? The Pasty and the fisherman does not go together, a skipper would not allow a pasty on his vessell--- to go to sea with a pasty/pasties on board is very bad luck!!!
