    "Due diligence" should ensure some one fully trained and experienced
    should be in control but. seems often lacking today.

    Hi Dennis.
    I was on tankers a lot, got issued the salt tablets; but they made me sick, couldn't even swallow them, used to drink a cup of sea water, same difference.

    When I first got married a boiled egg was the extent of my abilities! Having been travelling for years, sometimes my accommodation was just a room without cooking facilities (my excuse I intend to hang on to) so my practice was wanting.
    Husband who likes his food bought a cook book and used to leave markers inside ( both doing shift work so could go days not actually seeing each other) for me to try.
    Sometimes I did other times I suggested for him to "feel free" to have a go himself.
    Over the years we both have contributed to the meal production. The kids could always pick the difference in our "spag bol." Mine always had heaps more vegies, my sneaky way to make sure the kids got the right foods.
    We mainly buy fresh foods and these days don't eat much meat of any sort.... cheaper to go vegetarian.

    Have used them and some are quite good quality, but find it much more economical and healthy to cook fresh and then have 'left overs' to pick or have for lunch.
    Though I must admit that a local lady is advertising very cheap rates for either fresh of frozen meals.

    There are others who claim to be able to cook and have met a few in my working life.
    Not mentioned in either Vernon's posting or mine.

    They are cooks, cuckoos and willful bloody murderers.
    Having seen some of their efforts I know how they got such names.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Hey Doc so long ago and we're still telling stories to each other and some are still whoppers which have grown over time. Are you still sailing the Blue Mountains?

    So, along the same lines.
    Is a baker a pastry chef?
    Have both discharges in my book.

    Now hear up young Colin. Once you start involving young ladies to help with the menu, things will alter fast.I was looking in one of our locals looking at the produce for sale and I,m in the veg and fruit asile (caught me out that word) and there are all the spuds/brocali/sweet potatos/beans all nicely done up in a container that gives the cooking orders and Kong no salt. So me I'm very interested in whats there coz the Irish doc I now have say's 'Leave the bread,rice,pasta and spuds alone and eat mostly green stuff with now and then pots (sweet or normal). Eat Italian without the pasta or rice and the same with the rice and curry and you can have one of their big crisps, also because your on antibiotics no wine or ale'. Lads I'v just seen the W.R. heading my way so heading for the book counter. Speak later.
