    Clearly I am not common because I have no knowledge of cold wet away games in Grimsby, nor for that matter any of casinos, except in books and films.

    Guess what I couldn't get today - no, not one drop (apart from Cravendale which they can keep!).

    I just can't see nut milk without sniggering.

    Aviation accounts for around 2% of Carbon Dioxide emissions apparently

    IT Security people who think their role is to stop the company doing what it needs to do. The job is to ensure that what needs to be done is done securely. Alternatively to advise how to do the same job differently so that it is secure. Mind you many a project manager should contact IT security much earlier than is often the case.

    Drivers who put the brakes on for no apparent reason then indicate at the last moment before turning.
    Aided and abetted by designers who hide the indicators in the middle of the brake lights and/or inboard of the headlights so that they can't be seen easily.

    What's wrong with Cravendale Kate? As far as I am aware the only difference is that it is filtered which removes some impurities and it keeps longer. Tesco sell filtered milk under their own name too.

    I.T. Security is a thinkless task because people hate being told that their actions are putting the organisation at risk.

    The idiots who think it's wrong that only authorised employees may use the internet or that laptops taken off site must have an RSA key or similar to use them. The clowns who refuse to listen to the warning that the estate is going to be white hatted then complain bitterly that they're locked out because their password is on every cracker's basic list...

    I could go on but luckily it's no longer my problem.

    I can't have Cravendale either. Even a small amount in cereal etc would come out of me very quickly! No other milk acts quite in the same way (although I do have a slight intolerance to lactose so I am assuming it is something to do with that)

    Yes, it's awful. I could never take sterilized milk either. Ordinary milk does affect me, but in moderation I'm OK (just). Cravendale has some property which affects me like it does Nige. We can't be alone though. The whole of the milk bays were empty apart from the few specialised non-dairy milks - and Cravendale!

    I can take small amounts of milk in tea and coffee, in food and in cereal. It can affect me, although not too badly and not all of the time. I could not drink a big glass of any milk though. I wouldn't even have a mouthful of Cravendale unless I was sat on a loo!
    Enjoy your dinner!

    I believe few adult humans other than northern europeans and Maasai are very good at digesting milk.

    Interesting, I wonder how filtering it makes that kind of difference. Does Tesco filtered milk have the same effect? You probably don’t want to find out do you, I wouldn’t either.

    I believe you are correct.

    I assume it does but you are right, I don't want to test it!

    I wonder if filtering out bacteria/imopurities/enzymes actually make us more intolerant of the result? Perhaps those organisms which turn milk sour actually help pre-digest whatever we intolerant people react to.

    That sounds very plausible Kate, do we have a microbiologist who can further enlighten us I wonder?

    "How did we do...." texts & emails.....

    Every 4 weeks I go to the chemist and pick up my repeat prescription of 'men's problems' tablets.
    Next day I receive a text asking me to review my experience (at the chemist, not the men's problems...).

    Yesterday I went to the doctors for my 6 monthly blood test (same men's problems).
    This morning I received a text asking me to review my experience.

    It's bad enough receiving these from shops & online purchases, but not the chemist & doctors....... :(:(

    So half way through cooking my dinner, waiting on something to cook in the oven, and I decided the kitchen bin needs emptying.

    I take the bag out of the bin, tie it up, then lift if up to take outside when it decides to split open along the bottom spewing my rubbish all over the kitchen floor :mad:
