scone it's an oldy but a goody!

pronounced to rhyme with cone or gone?

mrz learnandsay is correct on south Tyneside they consider themselves Maccems and wear read and white so being called a Geordie is an insult


Sorry but she is not right.

People from Sunderland wear red and white scarves etc to support that footie team. Sunderland is not Teeside or south Tyneside. It's Wearside.

I ought to know - my family have lived there for generations.

I'm not talking about Sunderland. I'm talking about Hartlepool.

Fine. <<whatever>>

Do you live in the NE by the way? Or have lived there for any length of time?

learnandsay Fri 01-Feb-13 12:32:57

I lived in Hartlepool for four years.

I taught in Hartlepool and Middlesbrough many years ago.
Yes Missbopeep I do live in the NE and have lived there for half a century smile
My first school was in South Shields on the south bank of the Tyne and staunch Black Cats.
