I've just bought 2 packets of crumpets. When I'm feeling peckish I will have them with grilled mature Irish Cheddar on top. Followed by a cuppa PG Tips and a bar of Cadbury's coconut and cashew chocolate.

When you say "have them", is that another way of saying "mail them to Nutek"?

Of course...but I'm afraid they may be stale and mouldy by the time they reach you...so I'll not bother. I'll eat them myself instead.

Gritters were out on the UK roads again today.. No the met office didn't get it wrong again, but it's sooo hot some of the road surfaces are melting, so they are using grit to soak up the wet tar.
Apparently a lot of the smaller roads were built using a surface that can get very soft at about 45 degrees centigrade surface temperature. Major roads and motorways will be OK up to 55 degrees so they aren't affected.
Current air temps are reaching 31 or 32, but road surfaces are reaching about 48.

No wonder you moved to the US.. no other country on the planet would have portion sizes that would suit your appetite.
