Thanks everyone. Goldfish: the carer bought me some the other day - Rocco likes it too, although he’d probably eat anything if I pretended it was food. SoulSniper: yep, I stay up to watch WRC when it’s on. I was a big fan of Richard Burns. By the way: have you spotted my new car? Darren: eh? ;^) - Timmargh

What, is cinder toffee? A clueless Yank wants to know :) - imfunny2

It’s basically honeycomb - I think it’s called ‘sponge candy’ or ‘sea foam’ in the US. - Timmargh

Happy Birthday!!! - LobsterMan

Belated happy birthday Tim, and thanks for the elucidation of cinder toffee. I like honeycomb toffee too, especially where the bits are going just slightly soft and chewy. - charlesdawson

I’m late but… A happy birthday to you Timmy! :^D - MHC

Thanks LobsterMan. Charles: I’ll agree with that - the best Maltesers are the chewy ones. MHC: I’ll let you off seeing as you did send me a nice iCard … ;^) - Timmargh
