Breaking your heart is OKAY which is already broken.

I doubt very much if it can ever be mended.

There is NO HOPE for you .... I am afraid.


I love cockles too but I have a friend who loves it more.

I always warn her to be careful of contracting Hepatitis A at her rate of consumption.


Broken Heart, I will pack you off to Chairman.  I think you two make a great pair. :)

Not broken, but eaten

The common cockle is Cardium edule and that means "edible heart" (or heart shaped thingy)

So you eat these hearts but they have a lot of cholesterol so they may kill your heart if you eat too many!

Gratify one, make one feel good, as in It warms the cockles of my heart to see them getting along so well. This expression uses a corruption of the Latin name for the heart's ventricles, cochleae cordis. [Second half of 1600s]


warm as toast
warm heart
warm the bench
warm the cockles of one's heart
warm up
warm welcome


This says it all named after the cochleae cordis because they may not be tasty to all but have stood the test of time!

TMPHGT, since you posted the appeal here, have you done the necessary homework and verified that this is a genuine and legitimate appeal for donations to help the victims' families?

Is there anyway you can show proof that this is no scam ?


Since you asked ...

1) I said "Remember the victims of the Morecombe Bay tragedy and help their families if you can." - if you want to donate then fine. If you want to help by another way, then that is fine. How about educating people to stop them seeking a new life (in any country) using methods provided by criminal gangs?

2) www.ghosts.uk.com is the website setup for the film "Ghosts" which is a "documentary-style" account of what happened in Morecombe Bay.

3) The Morecambe Bay Victims Fund and the film have been discussed in a number of new articles: http://www.newstatesman.com/200611060018 is just one example.

4) The fund was setup by Nick Broomfield, Jez Lewis and Hsiao-Hung Pai. You can Google each of these names to find out more about the credibility of each of these people. Nick Broomfield is the director of Ghosts and this is his website: http://www.nickbroomfield.com/home.html.

5) The fund is deposited at C. Hoare & Co a private bank.

Those who seek to turn this thread into something else are clearly disrespectful.
