I'm a pretty lazy cook, so often when I buy stuff, it can be several weeks before I get around to cooking it. If I buy a bag of potatoes, they can remain in the bag on the veg rack until I notice that...

Here's an interesting question - never come across the subject in any of the thousands of wildlife programmes I've seen: Do fish yawn? (And how would you know, since they mostly seem to go around with...

Recently, in the last 2 or 3 years, I've heard Baconnaise mentioned in a number of different places. It's a blend of bacon taste and mayonnaise that was invented in America (...so no surprises...

Stamp collectors, if you like! I've always collected stamps, but not for any notion of value. But I know that some of them can be, or can become very valuable. In the last few years, if you go to the...

Since 11/09, I've had 2 cats, Sindy and Lucie, who were passed on to me by a friend who was moving, and was unable to take the cats with him. They both settled in very well with the other 2 I had at...
