  • What can I do with egg whites apart from the obvious ie meringue?

    Did a load of cooking yesterday and knocked up some creme brulee and an egg custard tart but now I have seven egg whites in a jug in the fridge and I don't want to waste them. I suppose I could make a lemon meringue pie but that means going out to the supermarket again. Does anyone have any other ideas?

  • Why is it rude to sing at the meal table?

    I was brought up not to sing at the meal table, but unlike elbows etc can find no reason why. Is it just because my grandmother who helped raise me was a miserable old cow and didn't like the sound of other people being happy?

  • Who provides the vocals on the theme song for Fifi and the Flowertots?

    I always thought it sounded like it could be Mel C, but listening to it a few more times I reckon it's probably Tessa Niles. Anyone here know for certain?

    ....around 35,000 feet when the plane she was on exploded in mid-air? I think it was in the 70's at some point, and she was listed in the Guinness Book of Records for a time as the world's greatest survivor. She was either Scandinavian or East European I think. Thanks.

    I don't mean "Can we play you every week?" - more stuff like "Where were you when you were sh!t?" or "You're not Special any more!" that the United fans sing at Chelsea/Mourinho.

  • Why is there a guy signing in the corner of my TV screen?

    Watching Sky Channel 303 "The Ice Harvest", and haven't selected any options from any menus, but there's some Herbert signing in the bottom corner of the screen. While I have the utmost respect for the disabled, is there any way of getting rid of him without messing up the fact that I had to pause the movie on Sky+ for a few minutes?
