    According to the new Boots magazine, dry January is unrealistic, people are better drinking in moderation as in February we binge drink to make up for depriving ourselves all month.

    Interesting reading.
    No decent coupons though.

    If our intention is to be welcoming to newcomers, it does the cause no good to make a dig

    After all, you and I were once lurkers I guess locarr Very few people jump straight in

    Apart from that, I can think of lots of examples where a newcomer has started a post with Im a long time lurker, but I might have just found something.........

    JF is 2 for 9 v T or W - so 2.05 each. Best would be v S or M at 1.60 each.

    Only mentioned sainsbobs for the JF as they have more and Morries comparisons unreliable.

    However since this morning someone found couple of JF confirmed against Morries on a womble 6 v 4.00. Third JF was N/A though

    I know you can eat cold beans straight from a can - a bit grim though. I imagine though if some are living in woodlands they might get sticks enough to make a rudimentry fire to heat a can up so I think spare cans would always be welcomed.
    When we were going down the bypass the other day there was a chap with his scooter parked up on the grass and he was hack sawing up sticks - I imagine small enough to go into his rucksack
