Alphabet Thursday X is for ? from Edenhouse

Ok I am on the case early this time , the last few weeks have blurred into a haze of busyness doing what I do not know and as I know I would not have been able to read other blogs decided it was not fair to enter my own .
Any way here goes
This seems to be a world wide craze but not in this house. My son in law and future son in law have them but I do not understand how they work nor have I ever had a go or desire to.
Once upon a time boys ( mostly ) had these game consoles and then they outgrew them and went onto something else now it seems that these boys who are now grown men enjoy them just as much , and why not ?
Ok technically this is not X but I did at least photograph from an angle that makes it look like an X

What is so significant about these buns?
The pastry cross on top of the buns symbolises and reminds Christians of the cross that Jesus was killed on.

Hot Cross Buns
The buns were traditionally eaten at breakfast time, hot from the oven. They were once sold by street vendors who sang a little song about them.
"Hot cross buns, Hot cross buns,
One a penny, two a penny,
Hot cross buns."
Hot Cross Bun Ceremony
At the London Pub, The Widow's Son, a Hot Cross Bun Ceremony takes place each Good Friday. In the early 19th century, a widow who lived on the site was expecting her sailor son back home for Easter, and placed a hot cross bun ready for him on Good Friday. The son never returned, but undaunted the widow left the bun waiting for him and added a new bun each year. Successive landlords have kept the tradition going after the pub was opened.
Xerox machine

once upon a time these were just simple to use photocopiers now they are so complicated I think one day a university will offer a degree in how to use them .
I do battle on a daily basis .
Should I do back to back ? do I need document stabling ?
No thank you I just want a black and white copy please .
Wonder if there are any copiers that speak to the user?
X Factor
love it or hate it it's part of our winter TV schedule.
I have to say I really dislike the eaerly stages when all they do is take the micky out of people who think they can sing, act or dance and I think that is awful.
Near to the end I do occasionally watch and in fairness there is some good hidden talent out there.
X Ray fish
Never seen one but how cool .
I am glad that we are not all gifted with this like superman , can you imagine what we might see?
Well that brings me to the end of my offering this week. I am now off to read some other xcellent offerings over at at Jenny Matlocks school for the mentally derranged ( or is that just the teacher )
Take her an apple and you might make her smile happy Thursday


Rocky Mountain Woman
