    How to breed antisemitism at a young age

    That is exactly what I mean.

    How to breed antisemitism at a young age

    Its all bollocks anyway - getting rid of all religious activity in schools would be a good start, rather than filling impressionable minds with fairy tales.
  6. Yep - some of those would put a very neat crimp in your bank balance

    Interconnect Surprise

    When he starts talking about audible differences at -300dB, I'm afraid I doubt his sanity. And his re-writing of physics is interesting - suggesting that the effect of an impedance is greater on a small signal than a large one I suspect Mr Ohm (amongst others) is turning in his grave...

    Curry anyone?

    We're a bit light on accessible curry houses here on Mull - there is one in Tobermory (3+ hour round trip) or in Oban (even longer, including a ferry ride), so we tend to cook our own. If we're feeling lazy, it is often based on Mr Vikki's Keswick Market curry sauce, which is a very decent standby: https://www.mrvikkis.co.uk/product/special-keswick-curry-sauce/ They also make various pickles and curry pastes which are excellent - their King Naga chilli sauce is to die of... ...but I have also been enjoying trying out some of the recipes by The Incredible Spice Men (amongst others): https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1849907064/ref=asc_df_184990706457444806/?tag=googshopuk-21&creative=22110&creativeASIN=1849907064&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310823491886&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3454954063082329004&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=20342&hvtargid=pla-755852973112&th=1&psc=1 Made their meatball massala last weekend, with homemade vegetable pakoras and pilau rice - absolutely delicious. Maddhur Jaffrey's recipes are also excelleny - her black eyed bean curry is excellent.
