.. all of which are decaf. Deep despair.

Don't jump off the roof, Tigerrr
You'll make a great hole in the yard
Mother's just planted petunias
The weeding and seeding was hard

If you must end it all, Tigerrr
Won't you please give us a break
Just take a walk in the park, Tigerrr
And there you can jump in the lake
I ATEN'T DEAD

Ah, just toss 'em in the 'non-recyclable' bin, and be rid of the pesky things.  That'll be the end of 'em, they will never show up again.

Could they be used in some application for which the point of coffee is its taste alone, eg coffee cake?

This works! Not only that but gives an additional hardcore flavour. Proper manly coffee - I bet George Clooney hasn't tried that. In fact it is easier just to eat the tablet and drink the coffee. A happy outcome.

The scanner I was using in Waitrose this morning locked up, an assistant issued another one for me, then I had to rescan everything I'd already bagged.

I couldn't find the corkscrew last night, so had to resort to a screw top bottle of wine. What's more it was Muscadet. With steak and kidney pie.

Did my budget for the month yesterday and discovered we have sufficient available left over cash for me to buy the new carbon frame I have had my eyes on for months.....

However, as CBH correctly commented, the money would pay off three months worth of mortgage and means I could retire in Jan 2021....

What to do....  ???

as much as the new bling is always good, three months of full-time riding the bikes you've already got... tough call.

Two corkscrews is one corkscrew. One corkscrew is no corkscrew.

(With apologies to Kim, I think.)

If you only had one corkscrew, are you sure you're in the first world?

GP, WM.  The wine I resorted to was "New World", so you could be on to something.

there's a fancy designer fish and chip shop about half a mile away, it's close enough to get the food home piping hot but they always overcook the fish and it's over a tenner for cod and chips.  There's a much better old fashioned proper chippy about 2 miles away, but the foods never quite hot when i get back and I don't want to drive..   Sigh.
