Re: Nescafe

I keep forgetting to post this. I've found that water temperature makes a big difference, at least with the instants and freeze dried I've tried. With Red Cup, I pour when the first bubble arises from the bottom of the electric kettle. Pour at full boil? I made that mistake only once.

Thanks, I'll check it out. Google maps didn't like the 'x', and it's 18.6", not 18.6'

Re: Comic Video Clips

Dad forced the boy to play football (soccer). But the only sport that interested the boy was mixed martial arts - and the first turn of the first lap of a Formula 1 race.

Re: Adhesive Nasal Strips...

Coincidentally I just ordered a 6 month supply of strips from the US off ebay. Cost 48 cents each, including shipping. Lazada cost 73 cents each, not including shipping. No contest. Never tried in-nose device. I'd probably lose them.

Re: Best of the Rest of the World

I got carded at the liquor store. While trying to get my ID out my old Blockbuster card fell out. The cashier laughed and said "Never mind." I picked up a hitchhiker yesterday. He said “thanks for picking me up but how do you know I’m not a serial killer?” I replied “the odds of two serial killer’s ...

Re: British home comfort food?

I was amused when living in the US. A new huge supermarket opened and they had all the items that have been mentioned here plus Birds Custard powder and Marmite. The amusing thing was that these items were in the "International Gourmet" section. US retailers long ago learned the 'gourmet' label les...

Re: Nescafe

I’m sure you’re correct as the image I posted above shows the instant coffee is made with 100% Arabica beans which are generally regarded as superior to Robusta beans, but the same goes for freshly brewed coffee - Arabica beans will produce a better tasting coffee to those made from Robusta beans (...

Re: Dirty municipal water

Ours comes via a ginormous tank, so the muck will settle at the bottom of the tank. However, I drove past a Soi 94 hotel yesterday when a bucket full of horrible grey water was thrown across in front of me. I parked outside that same hotel today, when bucket after bucket of grey water was being dis...

Re: British home comfort food?

Villa Market has Branston Pickle, though not necessarily in stock on the day you need it. It's one of the two British Commonwealth creations that have become part of my comfort food. Vegemite on buttered toast is the other.
