School in 1986: has bean, might have bean and don't know where it's bean.

It was what my mum said when the matter of how many beans make five came
up. (Thinking about it, you don't hear that expression much these days.)

My dad's version, taught to me aged about four, was: One bean, two
beans, a bean and a half and half a bean.

ISTR that John Peel incautiously raised the matter on Home Truths once
and was inundated with regional variations of How Many Beans Make Five.
All of which were incorrect, other than the one I've known almost all my
life, of course. :o)

Whichever version one may or may not have been brought up on, it doesn’t

I used to think that the expression "a hill of beans" was American
(having heard it first, I think, said by Bogart in some film or other.
However Dorothy L Sayers used it in one of her Wimsey books. (Needless
to say I can't remember which one.)

It is cold in Mongolia.

The desire to remain private and/or anonymous used to be a core British value,
but in recent times it has been treated with suspicion - an unfortunate by-
product of the widespread desire for fame. - Chris Middleton,

My apologies. I thought that would have been enough to get a direct
