    Perhaps they meant :

    1. "yeast extract" .

    I buy that from supermarkets, as I find the taste of Marmite proper to be a
    bit too sickly in comparison.


    2. wrong packaging

    AFAIK you can get "squeezy" containers as well as the usual jar.

    Tell her she gave you incomplete instructions on the "Marmite" front,
    and if she wants to know how/why she was at fault, refer her to this article.

    “Under current guidelines nobody should cough within 2 metres of you. If they do then it is to be recorded as a ‘near cough’ and you should immediately instruct them to 'far cough.’…”

    So if anyone's desperate for good news...I was informed that I'm being published (again) this morning

    Yeah, I know, it's not the first time I've been published (nor paid for it) but, you know, it's that or have to engage with the fact our country is currently being run by Dominic Raab & Michael Gove...

    Congrats hbic, what is it you write again? Presumably it’s not your Not606 educational paper on 1001 uses of the word ‘berk’?

    A bit of good news...

    My nephew, Harry, the lad still fighting Hodgkins Lymphoma has been awarded a 2:1 in Maths from Cambridge University based on his results up to the freezing of tuition a couple of weeks ago. This despite having twice had to come back to London for lengthy periods of chemo and radiotherapy treatment at The Marsden during his 3 years of study.

    We're all incredibly proud.

    An incredible achievement in the circumstances (for me in any circumstances).

    Sadly reminds me of something that happened in my final year.
    In the hall of residence was another final year guy, but he had cancer.
    For most of the year I hardly saw him around (due to treatment) .

    Then over a couple of days he was around, but scurrying around
    like the proverbial blue-arsed fly.

    I asked around what the story was, and somebody claimed that
    his condition was terminal, and the university were moving heaven
    and earth to ensure that he did the minimal coursework/exams necessary
    to guarantee he would be accredited with an honours degree before
    the eventual outcome.

    Never did get info as to whether the claim was true, whether he
    he literally did make the grade, survived etc.

    My wife (70) was taken by ambulance to the ER.Couldn't breathe and hadn't crapped for 4 days,which didn't help her breathing.She called me next day pm to pick her up.The hospital looked like a prison.Workers clothed in gowns,masks and gloves. They wouldn't let me in and I had to wait an hour in the car before a security man came out to take me to the rear exit.....where I had to wait another half hour before they brought her out. She was real ticked! The previous day they had put her in a small room and almost forgot about her.No oxygen,book,teeth or pills and in a wheel chair!
    She's home now and is not happy with their ER. She's decided to die at home!!!!!!

    Meanwhile my neighbour who is so paranoid of the Covid germs waiting outside her house that she flips out when he takes out the bins (which is when he gossips about infection rates with anyone within earshot...) somehow can't spot the obvious double standard of having their gardener who is clearly taking them for a ride come round for his weekly noise pollution and some gardening...

    She had a tough start to our married life.As she was in the navy,we both had to have physicals. Then,10 days after we got married,they found cancer she had cancer "down below" and had to have an hysterectomy. So we never had kids! Maybe that was good.....they may have become Southern Man U fans...….and I would have killed 'em!!!!?

    Sounds like he is a very determined young man and obviously worked very hard to get his degree. Good luck to him in the future.

    Nice to hear. I was never a bright spark at school.Not taking my 11 plus seriously and finishing up at a sec modern.But I came top of the class my first year and was told I could go to Tottenham Grammar,but advised me I'd be a term behind and wouldn't catch up....so I didn't go. But life has turned out very interesting so I guess I've been pretty lucky!
