    Besides obviously the desserts, they all had mushrooms.

    1st was appetisers, canapés

    2nd. Cèpes = Porcini (strange english name)
    3rd. Trompettes de la mort = Horn of plenty

    4th was ice cream.

    5th. Girolles = Chanterelle (that's also another french word, but apparently it's called like that in english too)
    6th. Roussillou = (no idea what this one is called, my father knew yesterday what it's called in german, but I cannot remember)

    The rest were desserts.

    A lot of English food names, especially for things like Mushrooms, come from Latin. A lot of English has a mixture of Latin and French, which is why many things are similar. We were invaded a lot over the centuries and added bits of different languages as we went along.

    Not a rant, but I thought I'd mention my 5 minutes of fame on YouTube.

    Judging by what Martin said in his video review, it looks like it is a pretty good multimeter, but far too expensive for what it is. But certainly will be good for free .

    I'm guessing because a lot of people don't understand the differences between various ways of inputting into a browser. My parents get confused between the address bar and the search bar in browsers f.ex.
