My wife has come up with a brilliant suggestion. It wasn't that either but it's a good answer, so if the memory continues to play up I'll pretend that was it.

hi

I have remembered the original 5 P S and I think it is a reasonable challenge.

Clue: once again, my avatar provides a hint.

You British chaps and your measurements!

That was an easy one. I could make it lots more challenging if you want.

btw They also use these measures in the USA.

So even my second guess about 5 P S isn't correct? Bummer...

Thank you for the compliment on the idiom. Yes,I found out that the US uses a different than you. Yours is the imperial pint. But it wasn't easy without the beer help.

Do you have any more?

Well you can try the original meaning for 5 P S.

and/or I can give you loads involving measurements.

OK. Here are some of those crazy British measurements. Expect that they are tough! (I have written them down so I won't forget.)

6 F in a F

4 G in a P

1 A was the A of L that could be P in 1 D with 1 O

5 S is 1 E, 2 E, ... 5 E.

480 G of G makes 1 T O

Happy googling!

hi Stefy,

That's brilliant. And I thought number 3 would be hard!

What did you google? "Crazy British Measurements"?

Bet that gave you them all.

No,I had to make a separate search for every of them.I still have 4 left.The five values are confusing me greatly.

Three was easy when I noticed the first A.
