Dove - I don't think I'm a flavoured gels sort of cook.  It is home-made and came from someone who likes his food and is a good Belgian cook so gourmet/gourmand in inclination.

See original post

 Don't think I'm a flavoured gels sort of cook either    (happy  to eat them tho')... nor Sue who made the suggestion.  Her idea of a fish mousse does appeal tho' ... and what about in a gazpacho?

Obelixx ... the first suggestion is from a very well respected cook and food blogger

"...It sounds very MasterChef-fy - flavoured gels to garnish dishes and that sort of thing.

I wonder if a small quantity would be good in a seafood mousse...."

Info and FAQs about donating your body for medical science here 

If your body has been used for organ donation it's unlikely to be accepted by a medical school for research ... there's info on what to do on the link.

Woottens have had a big shake-up ... they're only selling online and are no longer open to the public other than to collect orders at pre-arranged times ... plantings, poytunnels and all sorts of things are being expanded .... hopefully they'll have your plants back in stock before too long.

Pdoc ... a small celebration here this morning at the news from Alabama 

The news must've come through in the middle of the night before I woke and turned the radio off (having forgotten to pre-set it to switch off after an hour) as an obsequious DT featured in my dream   

As for Presumed Consent ... once they're of no use to me, doctors are welcome to any of my bits and pieces  to help others have a better life ... I've filled in the appropriate bit on my Driving Licence forms and my OH and my children are all aware that if they refuse to go along with my instructions  I shall come back and haunt them

There's a Monkey Puzzle near here which has had its top removed ... it looks ridiculous ... sorry, but that's the way it is.

Woottens also sell several single hardy chrysanthemum online and are a very reputable supplier.
