    Yes. There is something to be said for going out when still young enough to fend for yourself

    It's always going to be a bit older than you are now.
    Unless you're very unwell.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. When you said it was healthy, I did not think you meant it had it's roots chopped off and was slowly starving to death.

    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    After 38 years, I still do not know if 1 is colder on a fridge dial than 5

    Surely it's like is the indicator lever on the right or the left on a car, if you're lucky it's consistent within a given make.

    The number should be the amount of cooling effort (so 5 is colder) allthough I did have a "computer controlled" fridge freezer that I could set the actual temerature in degrees (so 5 was warmer than 1)
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.
