  • CBS Survivor question; can someone name or send me a site link listing ALL seasons in order?

    I've tried CBS but they only focus on the current or most recent seasons. I can nail the first six in order, but get fuzzy beyond there. Thanks!

  • Which type of rum should I use for a "butter rum" sauce to use in my baking?

    I need some advice as to which time of rum I should use when making a home-made butter rum sauce. It will be incorporated into other baking, and possibly as a sauce served drizzled over a cake for presentation. Does dark rum have a more molasses-type flavour over the clear rums? Actual brand names would be helpful! Cheers

  • Why cant ANYONE admit their ignorance? Isn't it true you all GUESS what will happen when you die?

    There isn't a single solitary person who will answer this question who HAS died, COME BACK and can now tell us with any actual authority what the rest of us can expect. It's all speculation and "the word" handed down by men from more than 1.75 millennia ago, looking for ways to subjugate the masses, especially women. ... show more

  • What excuse is there really for such overpriced restaurants?

    I love to cook. Am a self-taught chef. I frequently make a reasonable fee on the side baking specialty cakes for my co-workers. I realize there are certain ingredients that cost the earth, but on average, most restaurants don't serve truffles and grade 1 tuna, etc. every night of the week. SO my question is; what possible excuse is... show more

  • Does anyone know where I can get Coffee Crisp candy bars in London or UK?

    Loved them when I was a kid. Use to be a Cadbury treat, then I believe they became a Nestle`s candy. Just wondered if anyone knew of a source here in London, UK. Cheers!
