    The one thought I had is there is coriander and coriander.

    Bear in mind that it was mass produced, flimsy shite coriander I was using. As so does Waga.

    Now if you go to a decent market you'll probably come across some decent shit. That's a different proposition altogether and I personally wouldn't want it raw.

    But a fresh plate of tomato, basil and extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality for all three ingredients? Amazeballs.

    Look on eBay and research cameras. I reckon if you try hard and know your stuff you can easily beat this here mobile phone for not much money.

    Do it for respect. In the name of respect. For nothing more than respect. Then yank her chain when you know you have me beat.

    Lol, now we're getting somewhere... The only coriander we buy is the proper stuff from an Asian supermarket (the same as all such other ingredients for the curries and Chinese dishes we make), and flimsy it is not

    Simply because it's cheaper and better than any of the stuff sold in 'posh' supermarkets or delis. I'm surprised you don't seem to use these types of places, as in a city like Bristol, there must be a large Asian community in some parts, thus stores catering for their culinary needs

    Ha - I promise I'll do that when/if my current camera goes tits up. At the moment, it's perfectly adequate for my needs, and so as I seek to save the planet by reducing waste, I'll continue using it for now.

    I think it’s great a follow on from the movie Chef, starring Jon Favreau, which is really good, watch the movie first.

    I don't live in Bristol so no Asian stuff around here.

    Better Marco pics would attract more people to your site by about 0.035%. That's another £4.5 million in advertising revenue for you isn't it?

    Why does it say Bristol in your profile, then daftee? Did you just make it up?

    You're absolutely right of course about the pics.

    It's a Bristol postcode. I'm about 15 miles outside staring directly at the Bristol channel as I type.

    Well then, sweety, just like I require to do with cameras, you need to put more effort into sourcing proper Asian ingredients for your cooking... Found this great place in Eastgate Oriental City, BS5 :https://www.waiyeehong.com/

    So, jump in the Boxty and get shopping! We travel 40 miles there and back to Liverpool to get our stuff, so don't be a lazy boy!! Do it for respect. In the name of respect. For nothing more than respect.

    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    **Hate makes you impotent, Love makes you crazy. Somewhere in the middle you can survive.**

    “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!”
