Saturday Snippets 17th July 2021…When is a sandwich not a sandwich?

Welcome to Saturday Snippets where I indulge my whimsy and my passions… maybe a tune or two…something which has caught my eye this last week…just anything out of the ordinary or extraordinary…

For the last few weeks, I have taken inspiration from something I have read or watched… this week and also because it just happens (if) it is lovely bread and delicious filling can be a wonderful thing…my chosen word is…Sandwich!

Noun: an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or another filling between them, eaten as a light meal.

Verb: insert or squeeze (someone or something) between two other people or things, typically in a restricted space or so as to be uncomfortable.

Come with me and see just how much MORE Sandwich can mean…

I’m sure all you Cryptocurrency fans out there have heard the phrase”No Sandwich Please”…it is something that strikes fear into the heart of some…

Sandwich attacks are a type of front-running technique that’s popular in DeFi.

To make it a sandwich, the predatory trader finds a pending victim transaction in the blockchain P2P network and then tries to surround the transaction by placing one order just before the transaction (front-running) and one order just after it (back-running). The strategy is based on the idea of manipulating the price of an asset as a result of buying/selling the asset. How devious is that?

Mr Bean always makes me smile…

Sandwich dhokla is a speciality snack from Gujarati cuisine. Typically sandwich dhokla recipe is prepared from a fermented batter.

There are so many types and versions of making dhoklas, they can be made with gram flour, semolina, mixed grains, lentil and rice and many more combinations.

Some history…

History tells us that in 1792 John Montague the 4th Earl of Sandwich…not only have a love of gambling …but during a particularly fraught game he tasked a servant to put some meat betwixt two slices of bread this meant he could still play and hold a sandwich…This caught on with other players and they started saying “I’ll have the same as Sandwich”

Thus the first “Sandwich” took a bow…

Centuries ago people used bread as plates. They put meat and vegetables
onto some bread and ate with their fingers. These were the first open sandwiches, and they called them ‘trenchers’

My first sandwich was probably a “Jam Buttie”…one of my favourite sandwiches is egg and cress and if I was having high tea it would be “cucumber sandwiches” cut most thinly…

Of course, there is always the worlds most expensive sandwich…

At that price, I think I would want to frame it…

The Sandwich Islands…

The 1852 constitution reinforced the name and later laws and constitutions consistently follow the 1840 precedent. After 1840, the name Sandwich Islands was slowly replaced by the name the Hawaiian Islands.

Sandwich is also a town in Kent, England…

With a population of just 4,500, this town prides itself on being one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Kent. Perhaps unsurprisingly it has been rated as a 10 for quiet but it also scores a 10 for lifestyle, with its pubs and cafes.

Sandwich Mount…

Screws go fully through the bottom housing, plate, and top housing of the keyboard, holding the plate-like the middle of a sandwich.

Did you know?

Sandwich Panels provide thermal insulation. It consists of two sides of steel sheets and an insulation core that is attached by a powerful adhesive fastening. … Sandwich Panels can be used as an interior or exterior walls, doors, ceilings and roofing panels.

Sandwich Quay…Kent, England.

Sandwich Quay was once a thriving and busy port but is now about two miles from the coastline and used by small leisure boats for day trips up and down the River Stour. The picturesque Cinque Port town of Sandwich is a short stroll from the Quay with interesting architecture, shops and refreshments. Interpretation boards provide visitors with a wealth of information about the historic town. The Quay has pleasant open spaces for picnics, and a fenced children’s play area. The White Cliffs Country Trail and the Stour Valley Walk pass through the Quay towards the coast, and well-marked paths also link the Quay to the circular Old Town Walls walk around Sandwich.

Sandwich Wild Life Park...

Sandwich Wildlife Park is a small zoological park near Sandwich in Kent, and is owned and operated by Wingham Wildlife Park, which is just under 6 miles away.  The park had been purchased as a sister site to Wingham Wildlife Park in 2017 at which point it needed a lot of work to make it possible for animals to live at the site.  This included works such as renewing the tropical building, concreting around bases of large enclosure fences, replacing electrical fittings and so much more.  That work continues to this day and there is still a lot of work which needs to go into the site to allow the whole site to be used.

Due to COVID restrictions, the site at Sandwich Wildlife Park has been closed since 4th November 2020, and even though Wingham Wildlife Park was able to briefly open around the Christmas period in tier 4, Sandwich was unable to follow suit, as much of it is indoors with these areas have had to remain closed during that time.

That’s all for Saturday Snippets thank you for joining me…I hope you have a great weekend…See you tomorrow for my weekly roundup…xx

    Saturday Sandwich Snippets!

    I’ve never heard of the cryptocurrency sandwich thing; I guess it didn’t take long for crooks to find a way to steal cryptocurrency.

    Mr. Bean is quite resourceful 🙂

    Sandwich, Kent seems like the perfect town to visit.

    and I am guessing one of my first sandwiches was probably peanut butter and jelly…

    Lots of great fun with this sandwich post, Carol. Ironically, I was sitting here eating a sandwich when I opened our post.

    I was born and lived near Sandwich, and my dad and stepmum still live in the area. We had a lot of history to grow up with. It’s a picturesque little town, and no doubt a nightmare for traffic this weekend with the golf nearby! Your first video isn’t available here – ironic, if it is Mr Bean, as your comment suggests, as it was made here!
