Concur. No biscuit should have muck like that added. The only acceptable additive is dried fruit in moderation.

Yes -- dried fruit, isn't it?

Snotty: I just read Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky. It won him the 2016 Arthur C. Clarke Award.

Excellent SF, though there was no mention of biscuits.

Kindle edition 99p from Amazon.

Just read it myself.  Great book, proper epic SciFi marred only by its biscuitlessness.

A goat eating a reel of film from a skip in Hollywood . . .

Another goat: "What's it like?"

Goat: "It's OK, but the book was better."

'Twas ever thus.

Ah yes.  I happily munch my way through a packet of those in the knowledge that they form part of my five a day.

A few of these Bloody Marys would be more nourishing . . .

That's why I stick to proper health food. Real ale with the occasional single malt (whisky).

Looks good though. According to Google it's a Chicago Bloody Mary.

I've been off the salt for at least two years. And off the sugar for about a year. Except for beer. Blood pressure stabilised, and I feel much better.

Using the bike again. Lost 14kg so far, and I'm glad I kept the suits -- two of them fit again. Not to mention the shirts and jeans. Sometimes being a hoarder really pays off.

Onward! Through the fog!

You too, I think. You know well enough what I (we) used to look like.

Custard creams and fig rolls, my most hated biscuits as a child. My mother had appalling taste.
