My news for today is that I am to get hemodialysis soon. They told me I should stop drinking coffee !! I am away to look for a rope to hang myself with. No coffee !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She suggested that I could use CAMP COFFEE !
Camp Coffee? I didn't think that had been available since about 1976. It's made of chicory isn't it?

Camp Coffee is still available. Wikipedia informs us that it is 4% coffee, and that is decaffeinated. Scot47 will be pleased to hear it is a Scottish product!

Have you seen the PRICE ?????????????????????


It used to be 1/6 (one and six) when my father sent me to the corner shop for it. Ah the good old days of Retail Price Maintenance when something was the same price in a corner shop in Caithness as it ws in London.

Tesco has it for £1.70, which seems OK to me, probably the equivalent of 1/6, taking inflation into account.
