    Poppycock ... global warming is, imho, a crock ... 100,000 years ago we had "global cooling" ... the world can warm or cool without human interference. Science says that this occurs at 100,000 year intervals. Right now we are in the 10k to 20k warm period ... another 20k years and we will be cooling again.

    Exactly why I don't buy anything made in China ... not because of any 'warming crock' but because of poor quality. Seems the British designed stuff fares much better than American products, too.

    Good Humor vans ... owned by Unilever who also makes bath soaps. Egad, are we eating frozen soap?

    It's better that way, teddy ... too much sugar in ice cream anyway.

    Although, we found a brand, Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom, that is sugar free and does not have that 'plastic' taste at all. Don't know if you have that sort of thing in the UK or not though.

    I expect that there is something similar Lars. I personally like Cornish ice cream. Very rich and tasty.

    Teddy, suggest you nip into the nearest Lidl and try some of their ice creams, best I've had outside of Italy. I'm currently demolishing a tub from their Noblissima range of tubs "Crema di Frutta" - peach and mango as far as I can taste yyyuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmyyy. Their Gelatelli range is mostly on a stick or cornetto style, try the strawberry coated in white crispy chocolate.

    Found this interesting bit re difference between Italian Gelato and "ordinary" ice cream

    Cheers MIKE.

    My wife, who is meant to be on a diet, has just discovered Sainsburys rhubarb and ginger pies. Nuff said

    Nicky Paganini used strings made of gut maybe from the Devil and was the son of a humble dock worker.

    Likes the pic of Paganini on you page I used gut strings on my Double Bass I suppose they are all metal to day the big problem was the feathering due to sweat when playing pizzicato I tried a nylon "C" string once but it just kept stretching.

I wonder if our gutless goverment will agree to these steps.

    In South Africa electricity rationing is a reality. During peak hours you can actually hear the municipal controlled switches turning all the water heaters in town off, then you start praying they remember to turn them back on. If they turn them on you know it, because all the lights in town dim and freezer motors start labouring as 15000+ geysers all come on at the same time. Eskom (Electricity Supply Commission) are re-activating old power stations and using load shedding(turning power off to certain areas for 2 hours at a time) because no new power stations have been built since our current administration came into control. That our government keep on promissing "electricity, water and housing" to everyone before an election does not help to solve the problem.

    In the meantime banners on the TV keep on telling us "electricity usage is to high. Please switch off al unnecesarry devices, heaters and airconditioners". With radio adverts we are told not to use heaters and aircons, rather dress warmly or use gas heaters. if we are lucky our town get one truckload of gas every 3-4 weeks, last week the temperature ranged from -12C to a max of 3C and we have to huddle in blankets and be productive?
