Stuff is cheaper on the internet because it's either a) a fraudulent copy or b) they've saved on the costs of shop premises and everything that goes with them - rents, business rates, fittings, storage, transport, insurance and most of all sales staff with all their hiring/training/wages/insurance and pension costs.
I don't like dried up little bits of candied peel or glacé cherries in any shape or form. However, near here there's a patisserie wholesaler who does proper, juicy, sticky strips of candied peel which I blitz in my chocolate orange fudge cake and they do dried cherries which get soaked and plumped up in the mix of rum, cognac and cherry brandy and whatever else I have to hand when I make a Creole Xmas cake the week before Xmas. No icing of any sort though I did do a proper Delia once and top it with glazed nuts. It's yummy.
I hope Trump doesn't get his planning permission. Apart from the fact that you can get proper spiked wellies for wet golf, experience shows that sea walls and barriers just move the problem along the coast. The RSPB and NT are actively investing in coastal flood plains down the east coast to save other areas from damage and to create wildlife refuges. Seems to me a perfectly logical thing to do with a golf course.
