There you go, some positives in the mush. If I see one, I hope its the original one with the banana shaped thumbies. I will keep the grinder away from it.

For now....

LgF was up the pub last night, telling us how this one container of Rotorvators alone caused a 300 metre long container carrier to settle in the water almost to the high water Mark. When the container arrives at Felixstowe it has to ever so gently lowered to the dock in case it should cause a wobble in the Earths rotation.

But seriously, how bad could they be? Or is this a bit of a cause célèbre ?
