    Yes I expect some of the youngsters that come here probably wonder what on earth we are talking about sometimes. Still that goes both ways doesn't it.

    Here in the UK a shilling used to be a called a Bob. The name Bob is short for Robert, and a policeman is called a Bobby(amongst other things) which comes from  the name of the person who invented them Robert Peel.

    but what's a shilling ?
    sunnyB

    mcm a shilling was 12 old pennies, (until we went decimal in the early 70s) and 20 shillings made £1 (one pound). Now what was the shilling coin is 5p (New pence) and there are 20 of those to a pound, although they are worth so little that no one really wants them in their pocket.We now have coins that are 5p 10p 20p and 50p and we are European , most of us don't want to be, but that's another story.

    And a guy with no arms or legs thrown into a lake or ocean. I've heard all the Bob jokes.

    Sweaty, If you're talking about this web site, our member, Bob/ PKB , said she picked that name b/c it's easy to remember and to address her as Bob.
