The point I was trying to make is that one week a study pops up saying that (insert here) is bad for you then some time later another study appears saying actually its not that bad. No wonder everyone gets confused.

Salmon excepted of course (why can't I post smileys)

As the great Frank Zappa once pointed out there's a culture in California (since spread much further and wider) that claims ' if I stop smoking these and stop drinking this black stuff (coffee) I WILL live forever.'

Its my take on things that something will get you in the end so why deny yourself if you like it. There's a lot of truth in the saying a  bit of what you fancy does you good.

I see the study emanated from Harvard which suggests it was primarily for American consumption (no pun intended) as the garagantuan portions they serve up would take years off the life of your average Brit.

And finally over 100 posts. Do I get a biscuit?

One biscuit, AS.  Not two.  And not a chocolate one until you get over 1 000 posts ..........

Leeds you know that's wrong, it's half a biscuit and the other half at 500

I was trying to be welcoming .............  And pleasant, to a relatively newbie.   Neither of which come naturally to me, lol.

You would have to work hard though to do the 400 posts that wold take you from 100 to 500 before the half biscuit had gone stale.  Probably have to go to Games, and start a few  off ....

What is it for passing 2000? I have just realised I have passed it either last night or today.

A magnum of champagne.  To yourself.  And a chunky kit kat.

I'll skip the kit kat. I don't like chocolate and it's Nestle.
