    Yes; and I enjoy his light hearted presentation. Have you seen the one about lettuce, and how our weather affects sales?

    8% solids, not fat seems about right. Processed milk tastes totally different to straight from the cow. Raw milk tastes much sweeter.

    No, not seen any of them. I like watching MasterChef but we spend half of the time shouting abuse at him through the TV.
    Farage and Wallace, side by side. Only allowed to slap one. Which would it be?

    Oh, Wallace. Smug mug insincerity personified.

    A stall in a local market actually sells raw milk. It's not a lot of use to me anyway though as I use very little milk, the smallest pack is 2 pints, which would have gone sour before I would even have used half of it.

    I'd use Wallace's face to bludgeon Farage... Job done.

    Surely - when stood side by side - you might, with a bit of care, get 'two for the price of one'...? ;)

    I must say, though, that for me, there's no contest here. While GW certainly is fairly annoying, at least he isn't a total ******* ****. :)

    I didn't take this thread long to wander off subject...
    Next time AP finds itself with a page to fill at short notice, I'd suggest a reprint of one of Roger's older contributions.

    Roger was often the chief instigator of turning a thread off topic. He could turn anything around to his favourite 'B' word. Whether Roger had any early indication of his medical condition I don't know, but getting so het up as he did about 'B' didn't do him much good. Whatever views are about anything, good health beats all.

    He may have got het up about Brexit, but that is because he cared deeply about the EU.
    From my experience of pancreatic cancer, the symptoms are difficult to spot as cancer. I suspect he only really noticed the problem when it affected his liver. I doubt if his thoughts about Brexit had much effect on anything.

    It’s been a bit since I’ve visited the forum, and just logged in to read the sad news

    I respected roger (maybe not at first) but having read his posts, it was clear to see the passion he had, and it was always a joy to read his posts, even if I didn’t agree with him at times.

    This week's printed AP carries many tributes to Roger.

    I have just looked in and am disapointed the way this thread has gone, I miss Roger's presence here very much, for those thing's we agreed upon , and even more for those things we disagreed upon. Roger deserves better than the trivia now being posted.
