Neither the Co-op or Tesco had white wine vinegar.   How do the local students cook?

Just watching the live feed from the Dragon capsule.  One of the astronauts appears to be having trouble with the seal on a freezer bag.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Tempted to say FSVO full, but it looked like empty food containers.

Probably a kenny mutant. They die after two days.

My second favourite after Ken and Barbie, male and female versions of the same Drosophila mutant, which have no external genitalia.

Or possibly a lush which does what you'd expect. In less refined times was called cheap date.

I can no longer find cheap* ginger beer made with sugar.  Sucralose seems to be bearable, but aspartame leaves a horrid aftertaste.  Ick, ick, ick.



* I.e. Not Fentimans and similar over priced middle class nonsense. I'm talking supermarket own-brand (no longer) sugar water, flavourings (probably artificial) and CO2.

Dr Beardy loads the whirly clothes dry from the outside. Now this wouldn’t be a problem is she was the only one doing the laundry, but I’m expected to undertake the task as well. But the real bug bear is that she’s now taken to ‘correcting’ my loading of the whirly clothes dry and moves things I’ve pegged to the shorter inner strings ‘so that it balances’. Grrr

Barakta and I have grumbled about this in Food & Drink before.

Might not have been ginger beer but sometimes we just want full sugar fizzies.
San Pellegrino Limonata/Arenciata have been reformulated with less sugar, which marred our Christmas meals.

We hardly touch alcohol but like a decent sweet pop with special meals.

There are stories of capitalist running dogs buying up the remaining stocks of full-sugar Irn-Bru to flog at vastly inflated prices to quivering Caledonian addicts.

Even the middle class overpriced nonsense has been de-sugared. What the hell is wrong with the world, even the rich can't be trusted to care for their own teeth and lard.

I'm going to try this middle class overpriced nonsense- I don't much want the organic credentials but I like that the major ingredients are sugar and more sugar.

I repost https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OmZq9Ul5AFUAsIjX9G8IsMIsNGwU9Q8P4kcKe6T74YE/edit#gid=0 the spreadsheet a friend compiled of sugary alternatives from last yr tho.

I am still drinking the posh ribena that has to be kept in the fridge. It's not as nice as REAL (sugary) ribena :(

And coca cola is still OK, I don't drink it much but if I wanna push my brain to do sensory processing, throwing extra glucose at my brain stops it migraining quite as badly and tastes slightly better than dextrose tablets!

I think the alcopops known as 'fruit cider' are still full-sugar, for those who take alcohol.

Sellers of ethanol seem to be able to include large amounts of sugar in their beverages and minimise available useful information.
