    It is a scientific fact that your body will not absorb calories if you take it from another person's plate.
    Chocolate is the answer and I don't give a damn what
    the question is.

    Fancy a short break in Edinburgh? Then we have just the thing! Our winner and their guest will enjoy an overnight stay in the capital's marvellous Hotel du Vin, which boasts an unrivalled location just five minutes from the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle.

    Each room in the hotel is named after a famous wine and features individual interior design. Our winner will stay in a studio suite, with VIP treatment, dinner to the value of £100 and breakfast in the morning. The studio suite is a spacious open plan room with a magnificently comfortable king sized bed, living area and en-suite bathroom with walk-in monsoon shower and a free-standing roll-top bath for relaxing.

    Dinner will be in the hotel's beautiful French bistro, which is reminiscent of Paris in the late 30s. The focus is on fresh, tasty, well-made dishes full of depth and flavour. Start with a glass of champagne, then some saut!ed mushrooms in a Madeira sauce on brioche toast, or a steaming bowl of fresh mussels, before moving on to the a satisfying cassoulet, rose veal Holstein or even a Chateaubriand for two. Save some space for dessert or the bistro's excellent cheese trolley.

    There's also a traditional wine tasting room and spectacular cellar with over 350 wines, or you could try a dram or two in the whisky snug, with over 100 whiskies to choose from, or unwind with a Cohiba in the cigar bothy and courtyard.

    Round off your stay with a relaxed breakfast with your choice of freshly squeezed juices, cereals, pastries, fruit, natural yoghurts and crunchy granola. Or indulge in something hot - perhaps some soft poached eggs, crispy bacon, succulent sausages, classic crÍpes or kippers?

    The prize must be used by December 2018 and is not available in July and August.
    Love entering competitions
    Thanks to all that post.

    Hmm. We!!!8217;re having trouble finding that site.

    We can!!!8217;t connect to the server at
    If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

    Try again later.
    Check your network connection.
    If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

    Works fine for me.
    The bitter taste of poor quality lingers long after the sweet taste of cheap price has faded away.
