101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

I can see this is going to become '101 uses for a final demand', followed shortly afterwards by '101 uses for a court order' and '101 uses for an empty house now that the balifs have visited'.
