Yes. I got very fed up of being manipulated into thinking "will they get
there just in time to catch her snuffing him".

Mind you, I could now eat a fish finger sandwich ... (haven't bought
fish fingers for decades if ever: I'll maybe look into what they involve
next time I shop.)

Well worth paying a bit extra for specifically Haddock Fish Fingers, IMHO.

I'll try to remember haddock.

About the only fish I often buy are (I think they're sashimi?) what we
used to call crabsticks, though they now call them seafood sticks
(presumably because they have no crab in them). I eat them as they are
as a snack.

Excellent suggestion. If you are price-conscious, may I suggest first
reading Xanthe Clay's deconstruction of the fish finger market here:

In her very much wild younger days I reckon she would have.

I didn’t catch that, thanks. Can’t see the point of fish fingers in extra
bread.

More shouting to come still. Hope to goodness, Rob hasn’t insisted on Alan
taking the funeral.

I learnt just the other day, that sashimi is thinly sliced meat, not fish.

Rather longer ago, on YouTube, I learnt the seaweed sheets used for rolling
up sushi and such, is good food for moth orchids, along with turmeric (mix
together in a jar and, after trimming off any dead looking bits, soak the
whole plant for an hour). I've tried it and it certainly revitalised one of
my very sad orchids which didn't want to grow any flower stems.

That latter link ran me through a whole series of capchas (however it's
spelled) without ever letting me though.

How odd. It's never done that to me before. But I am more often the
creator of or finder of other people's archived links than a reader of
what's been linked to.
