    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    Spag bol works so much better served in a BOWL, than a plate. It's not only easier to eat, as you can use the edges of the bowl to help twirl the strands into a ball with your fork [the correct way, as no-one in Italy uses a spoon], but it's also easier to mix the sauce in with the pasta - plus everything stays warmer for longer, too!

    If you want to do things properly, then this is the golden rule to follow:

    Dried pasta (any shape) = serve in a bowl.

    Fresh FILLED pasta (any shape, ravioli, tortellini, etc) = serve on a flat plate.

    You would also serve fresh UNFILLED pasta, such as tagliatelle, in a bowl. Just if you're interested, otherwise ignore me and carry on as normal

    Marco.
    I am sure you’ve told me off about this before, just haven’t got round to picking up some nice pasta bowls!

    Lol@ told you off

    Oh yes, you're a very BAD boy

    How do you manage to eat it though, don't you just end up chasing the spaghetti around the plate?

    Anyway, Sue knows what to get you now for your Xmas!

    Thanks, perhaps lacking a little in the presentation stakes? Might appear on a menu as a 'puddle' of spicy pork
