Rubbish can?

We called the phosphates at the drug store soda fountain when I was Much younger. As in "a nickel vanilla phosphate please"?

I've heard soda, pop, coke, but never Phospate -- that's a new, uh well maybe too old of one for me. Anyone else use a different term?

Some of my elders (now that is truly elder) called it sodypop or even sody. They came from southern IN. It was always pop to me in central IL.

OTOH, the DH who is English refers to fizzy drinks sometimes. At the mention of soft drinks, he says the likes of Coke and Mtn. Dew are not. Soft drinks to him are the non-carbonated ones, such as black currant or orange squash.

Good ponderance, Barb. Now let's go get a cuppa tea!

Cheers!
Sue

Nope! Big difference. In Texas it is bigger, and taste better. None of that turkey stuff. The garbage can is filled with potatoes, ham, cabbage, carrots, corn on the cob and any other vegetable one wants to throw in. The garbage can is filled past the rim with all these goodies, and I mean it is staked at least 8 inches above the rim. The 'far' is lit, the pot gets to boilin' the ingredients cook down, and 45 minutes later it is ready for the serving buckets.
