Re: A QUIZ!!!!!!

Oh no - I didn't mean anyone else has to actually DO anything. I meant that I can't run a sooooper-doooper revolutionary never-been-done-before-in-real-time Christmassy quiz thing unless I have lots of willing participants who don't mind spending a couple of hours relaxing with their friends whilst ...

Re: A QUIZ!!!!!!

Well as it's coming on Christmas soon, I thought a Christmassy kind of quiz in December just to get everyone in the mood. But, as I say, it's completely new and revolutionary so I'm going to need some help.

Re: A QUIZ!!!!!!

Completely different. Sooooooooo different that it's never ever been done before. Anywhere (well, at least around here). It's a world first (all rights reserved) and it's going to happen here.

Re: Aconitum napellus

Blimey - didn't know a little flower could be as poisonous as that! ... And nor does anyone else, Ina. It's fairly typical lax journalism, full of surmise and assumption. There's no doubt that the plant is very toxic - but merely brushing against it is unlikely to be fatal. Pulling it out with bare...

Re: What i'm brewing at the moment

Re: Dishwashers v Hand washing

I'm not sure about that. When it comes to hand washing, I have to factor in the heating of the air as I stab my finger yet again on the tines of a fork (why does it ALWAYS get you just under your fingernail?), the extra dog food because the sod sits right behind me and I fall over him resulting in h...

Re: 5 "schnapps"
