    I've got loads of these kicking about, and use some for storing other wee bits and bobs. But I have too many; any good ideas what to do with them, or info on appropriate recycling if nothing else suits?

    I was at a science lecture for children with a grandchild a while ago and learnt a new use for them. Half fill with a mixture of bicarbonate a f vinegar. A most impressive bang results.

    3 for £1 sound about right? ;)

    I'm hoping to finally send off my backlog of film for developing this week. Nearly choked when the first lab I checked said £7/roll process only. :eek: Next place was half that, but still has a good rep. Glad not to go into three-figure price! If it's (as is likely) a naff summer at least I can keep busy scanning and dust-spotting...

    Canadian $1 paper bill was replaced 1987 by coin with image of loon (waterbird) on one side; followed some years later by $2 coin, which obviously got called a twoonie. Loony, ain't it?!
