  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Don't get me started on the quest for smart and warm ladies cardigans. Can I find wool apart from pricy cashmere? Even the Edinburgh Woollen Mill doesn't stock lambswool or merino jumpers much. The M&S merino jumpers I got earlier...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    I've got UHT lactose free - stores for months at room temperature, and the regular lactose free which I find in the free-from chiller cabinet at my local Morrisons. The latter goes in the fridge when I get it home....
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    "I feel sorry for the corona virus - Boris has got it" https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52060791...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Oh yes. We're talking local government, and we're the Public Health department, so yes, they're aware. Besides London is the current UK hotspot for cases. My usual train into London yesterday was more than half empty, even after Stevenage when...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Went into the office today and got my laptop updated with a bit of kit so I can use it from home. 3pm - message round from senior management - as of tomorrow, all staff who are able to work...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Lucky you being taken to parties. I just caught everything possible (still do when exposed to other people's diseased offspring). I think our GP reckoned it was spontaneous generation. I remember being kept inside during the winter months at my...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Try Tabasco or other hot flavouring of your choice. I'd suggest Worcestershire sauce (Lea & Perrins) but that may be adding the sodium back in, ditto soy sauce....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Been thinking about long term societal changes once we're past the immediate response (yeah, I know, assuming we get past it without a complete societal collapse). Somebody upthread (or in the old thread - I can't remember) commented that the...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    It's a numbers game. The larger the gathering, the more likely somebody is infectious. On the other hand, the smaller the gathering, the smaller the room. Swings and roundabouts come to mind... We're wondering whether to go to a RPG...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    @charlie I'm aware of the difference; a more apt phrasing on my part would have been biocidal... It's why I'm not getting anti-bac handwash and am keeping an eye out for hand sanitisers (now out of stock everywhere it seems)....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Dunno about the soap formulation, but a bacteriologist I used to know reckoned the desquamation gained from drying your hands on a towel (cloth or paper) was as important as any bacteriocidal effect of the soap....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    I'm in St Ives. We moved out of Cambridge nearly 5 years ago now. Himself uses the misguided bus to get into work (hence the early start because he has to get across Cambridge before it gridlocks in the morning)....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Royston? Yes, the Peterborough - Horsham service is the one I use. These ThamesLink services are all fairly new - I sometimes use the Cambridge-Brighton service on the way home (I can make the 17:09 and change at Stevenage if...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Yup, 07:10-07:15 leave the house to drive to the station (30 minutes is plenty to get there and park - traffic can be variable depending on the state of the A14), 07:41 train leaves, 08:37 (theoretically) at Finsbury Park Platform...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Didn't you used to be able to get Shippam's Bloater Paste? Mind you, I always liked the Anchovy Paste (which got discontinued some years ago). Trouble is, people these days don't like gamey foods much these days, and things like...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    I do have time to do a cooked breakfast weekdays - but 5 am is far too early for me to eat. Besides, I'm still half-asleep for the next hour, then it's get the packed lunch together, get the dishwasher...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    There's one word why: bones. I for one do not have the time to spend dissecting the wretched things out of the good kippers, and the so-called boneless ones tend to be a bit meh. Also, they stink the place...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    IIRC, we used to use 1:10 bleach:water to wipe down the lab benches. This was about 20 years ago now... It's what I used to clean up FedEx at Stanstead when one of our shipments leaked and they started bending...
  • Commented on A serious question
    Not in the sense that gut infections usually are. What it's more likely to be is via inhalation of aerosolised dry faecal powder. Given that bats are thought to be (one of) the initial vectors, this would make sense given...
  • Commented on A serious question
    >280 The nearest thing to a shifter romance I've read and kept is The Edge series by Ilona Andrews. Others dealing with romances between shifters and humans I would consider fall more into the Urban Fantasy genre rather than the...
  • Commented on A serious question
    You don't even need to sign up to KU to get lost in the dreck - just doing searches seems to bring it up (literally). Unfortunately, I prefer my kink to be less extreme so I avoid the romance genre...
  • Commented on A serious question
    Huh. I remember microbiology lab classes at uni in the late 70s - we were taught to sterilise the spreaders by dipping them in alcohol ad introducing them to a lit Bunsen burner....
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    The mnemonic my mother taught me was "No nice Red Port Left" (personally I can't stand the stuff). She was a wartime WRN - not sea-going, but she was an electrician and worked on running lights and the like so...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Yes, it's Learning Tree. I haven't checked out the maps yet - I was going to do that nearer the time. Good to hear it's the KX/StP side of Euston, so it will be feasible to catch a ThamesLink and...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Was watching the wood pigeons chasing each other round my garden a few minutes ago - don't know whether it was 'hey girls - wanna f***' or 'my mealworms - keep off'. If the latter, the starlings and blackbirds were...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    I'm a slow walker and have dodgy knees, so it's a toss-up. Besides, I don't know what I'll be needing to lug with me - packed lunch probably as the local eateries sound problematic for me. In any case, on...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    I live outside Huntingdon, and commute via Finsbury Park where I change onto a Moorgate service. At least it's not as bad as when I would try and get onto the Northern Line at Kings Cross to get to the...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    I got rid of my Kilner jars when I moved 5 years ago. They were mostly ancient and had narrow necks and I couldn't get the seals or replacement (glass or metal) discs any more. I was mostly using them...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    I've seen counter top dishwashers (I was considering getting one for himself's mother but I suspect the plumbing arrangements for it might have been tricky). We (2 people) run ours on average once daily - more often if I'm doing...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Basically the set up my mother went for in 1964? 1965? She made my father pay to have the kitchen remodelled and she had a New World gas hob with eye level grill, and off in a unit to one...
